John Humber - Dakota Skye

Which emoticon would tip you off that I'm not deadly serious about this?

This a 2009 film?
2008, not this year but well within this decade.

I'm counting it as a 2009 film.

The two most glaring omissions are Pride & Prejudice and Confessions of a Dangerous Mind.

Big fan of both of these but neither would make my top 15 likely.

Don't you know that Pride and Prejudice is one of the greatest films ever made?

Thread needs more shirtless dudes in cutoffs playing shit songs on their guitars.

Also,

La Libertad
The Taste of Others
No Rest for the Brave
Kissing on the Mouth
Control
Hot Rod
12:08 East of Bucharest
Gone Baby Gone
Waitress
Year of the Dog
Teenage Hooker Who Died and Became a Killing Machine
Along the Ridge


only the first 5 of which would make my top 10, maybe.
...

I've reworked the article, taking out of Shaun of the Dead in light of, well, it apparently not being his first movie.
