But it's such a cool-sounding word!

Hanzi?

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

100 Best British Films by Time Out London

Some big names contributed as voters like Mike Leigh, Ken Loach, Terence F*ckin' Davies, Wes Anderson, Cuaron, Gondry, Sally Hawkins, and Olivia Williams among others including prominent critics especially from the UK.  You can view each voter's list, and many write up their criteria.

The Start the Countdown tab includes capsule reviews for each film.  The Full List tab doesn't have capsules, but as you'll find out, clicking the movie title or picture will bring you to the Countdown list version anyway.

My only complaint is that The Long Day Closes is criminally ranked low!

Since The Bill Douglas Trilogy made it, I would've loved to see a film or two from The Terence Davies Trilogy on the list as well especially since Derek Jarman was a fan of the trilogy and wrote an appreciative article of it titled A Different Kind of British Cinema.

Kind of a weak area for me, only 63/100.  There are several titles there already on my want-to-see list, however (the Bill Douglas stuff, Secret & Lies, Long Good Friday, Fish Tank).

Kind of shocked to see Nil by Mouth at #21. Can anyone here second that recommendation?

Biggest omissions (according to my Top 100): Children of Men, Truly, Madly, Deeply, and Vertical Features Remake. I'm also disappointed the British Documentary Movement wasn't more strongly represented.

Arts and Faith Top 100 2011 Edition

Arts and Faith Top 25 Horror Movies

I like both these lists a lot. Both remind me of stuff I should have seen by now.

Marathon time!

Only 27 of BFI100

56 of the Arts and Faith 100, though many of them I've watched since the old list came out made me go "why is this on a list about faith?"
Seen about half the 25 horror list.
