I'm sure I'd forget movies. I'm bad at lists. I'd say that Fury Road is the movie I'm the most thankful for, though.
I'm so many people.

He held on. The dolphin and all the rest of its pod turned and swam out to sea, and still he held on. This is it, he thought. Then he remembered that they were air-breathers too. It was going to be all right.

If I could move the night I would
And I would turn the world around if I could
There's nothing wrong with loving something you can't hold in your hand
You're sitting on the edge of the bed, smoking and shaking your head
Well there's nothing wrong with loving things that cannot even stand
Well there goes your moony man
With his suitcase in his hand
Every road is lined with animals
That rise from their blood and walk
Well the moon won't get a wink of sleep
If I stay all night and talk

Yep, obviously some good picks but pretty safe overall.

I liked Moonlight, but wasn't nearly as struck by it as I was Beale Street...

Cahiers du Cinéma: Top 10 Films of the Decade 2010-2019

Li’l

i’m not really sure why this word is in crisis but i’ve noticed it in crisis around the internet. please at least as movie people know this is how to write li’l

later: i located the reasoning for choosing lil’

Quote
The apostrophe is at the end of the abbreviation because you are cutting off letters from the end of the word. However if you were to cut off the beginning, it would be at the front.

Because → 'Cause

Little → Lil'

The apostrophe is usually only between letters if it is a contraction (two words formed into one for convenience).

We will → We'll

You all → Y'all

this is a weird fucking explanation: The apostrophe is usually

it doesn't fucking matter what the apostrophe is usually doing, it matters what an apostrophe means:

ORIGIN mid 16th cent. (denoting the omission of one or more letters): via late Latin, from Greek apostrophos ‘accent of elision,’ from apostrephein ‘turn away,’ from apo ‘from’ + strephein ‘to turn.’

an elision: the omission of a sound or syllable when speaking (as in I'm, let's, e' en).

is any sane person noticing the missing e in lil'. is that the missing sound or is it the t sound

hmm

it’s not an accurate list but it’s eclectic and eclectic is possible while accurate isn’t. one thing i like and only noticed because of you people is how long they take to list PTA, sorry not sorry, anyway they should have listed his other movie first when they first mentioned him
