#658: Top 5 Movie Years / There Will Be Blood / Coco / Mudbound
« on: December 01, 2017, 12:06:09 PM »


Great movie years usually come down to a memorable Best Picture matchup. In 1939, it was "Gone With the Wind" vs. "The Wizard of Oz." In '94, "Pulp Fiction" vs. Forrest Gump." And a decade ago it was the Coen Bros.’ "No Country for Old Men" vs. Paul Thomas Anderson’s THERE WILL BE BLOOD. On this week's show, Adam and Josh honor the 10th anniversary of '07 with a Sacred Cow review of the PTA masterpiece and share their own Top 5 Movie Years. (Have a seat, 1939, you and Scarlett are going to sit this one out.)

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

1978-Days of Heaven

*drops mic*

Heh, is 1978's Days of Heaven really that much better than the combined greatness of 1979's Stalker, Apocalypse Now, Alien, and Wise Blood (let alone 1984's Paris, Texas, Amadeus, A Nightmare on Elm Street, and Stranger than Paradise)?

In summary, I think you meant to type 1927.
