No, it's because those are amazing films. Also because my Top 250 probably consists of about 500 movies.

O yea, that's right. You cheat when you make lists....

Well, in this case it's not so much about cheating as I don't have anything resembling an actual list so I just say "well that's a Top 250 movie" to a lot of movies without considering how many I've said that about or where they would rank.

Also, the IMDb Top 250 has How to Train Your Dragon and The King's Speech and not Close Encounters and so it is void and stupid.

And Black Swan has no business being on that list.


It totally belongs on the list, not that what is and isn't on the list matters as we all agree with some, disagree with some, etc.

Your write ups were fantastic, James.  I'll miss these reviews, but I look forward to what you have planned next!

Brazil is excellent. I highly recommend getting to that one sooner than later.
