So, 90-Present: 24
Foreign: 6
Before 1960: 5
Kubrick-Scorsese-Coen Brothers: 13

I found more then 3 films I liked, but kinda dissapointing balance. Not shocking, though.

Biggest surprise: Spielberg shut out.  :shock:

Wonder if it's because too many different movies got votes, or if folks just don't like him.

I like the list. You only choose 15 anyway. (NOT YET though.. we still have to completely figure out the final thing).

There are a few that made it in that I'm really happy about.

i learned two things:

1) about 48% of the greatest films ever were made post-1990
2) PTA is the greatest director ever

I'm surprised too, and do think it is because he had way too many movies. The one I was hoping got nominated was just Schindler's List. Other surprises: Casino, Elephant Man, LOTR, My Life to Live (congrats SoNowThen) and The Shining.

Good list, good list.  I see a lot of my picks on there. I'm very satisfied with the outcome.  Thanks to the xixax royalty for taking the time to organize the list.   :)

11 of my 30 nominees made the list.

It is disappointing to see the lack of older films.

Adaptation and Donnie Darko surprise me.  Best films of all time?  They aren't even the best films of their respected years.

EDIT:  Also My Life to Live over Breathless surprised me.

Things to be thankful for: Barry Lyndon, Jackie Brown, Mulholland Drive.

I was surprised by a lot of things, but not surprised that this doesn't look like a routine 50 best list. That definitely worked the way it was supposed to.

The list isn't as predictable as I'd feared. I see a fair enough number of my picks on there. I don't think I'll do too much complaining. I'll wait for the final 15 and see how that goes.
""Money doesn't come into it. It never has. I do what I do because it's all that I am." - Morrissey

"Lacan stressed more and more in his work the power and organizing principle of the symbolic, understood as the networks, social, cultural, and linguistic, into which a child is born. These precede the birth of a child, which is why Lacan can say that language is there from before the actual moment of birth. It is there in the social structures which are at play in the family and, of course, in the ideals, goals, and histories of the parents. This world of language can hardly be grasped by the newborn and yet it will act on the whole of the child's existence."

Same here.

Only 10 of mine made the list.

Altman didn't make the cut either. :(
