None of the four films I've seen from this year qualify to be listed. Top shame is Earth, most mainstream I haven't seen is The Golden Age.

A reminder that we disagree on The Blue Angel.

I don't think you'll like it. Horrible acting and overblown melodrama. Hughes should have just remained a casting couch type of director.
