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.


Yes, this is what I'm waiting to see.  

I'm hoping for some Kubrick action in the #1 spot

Kubrick #1 would be swell. Hope that all the Kubrick titles don't split the vote...

Oh, man... I'm realizing that even though 15 of my original 30 aren't on the list of 50, I'm still going to have a hard time picking just 15. That's probably a good thing. Still... the metaphysical agony of choice (and exclusion) is wrenching.
""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."

Magnolia is the movie to beat. I'm thinking Kubrick will split the vote, but I'm guessing 2001 will still be in the top 3.

Altman didn't make the cut either.


that does suck. i should have thrown my vote behind a more popular altman film and maybe i could have helped his cause.

This list is really beautiful.  I love the variety and it's great how many of mine made the list.  I'm loving the fact that Spielberg got shut out, and that, well, we know PTA kicks ass, and yes, all the greatest films were made after 1990, despite what older critics would say.

And a whopping FOURTEEN of the films I picked were on the final list.  And that's not counting Citizen Kane and Casablanca which I think are both great but didn't nominate because I knew they'd get in anyway.

Surprises for me are: Adaptation, Barry Lyndon, Barton Fink, Brazil, Casino, Empire Strikes Back, Godfather, Godfather part II, Good, the Bad, and the Ugly, Jackie Brown, Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring, Matrix, My Life to Live.

Jackie Brown is a pleasant surprise 'cause it really is a great movie.  Doesn't get enough credit.  The others I either haven't seen or are questionable, IMO.  But that's not important.  

So when can we post our nominations lists to share with everyone?

Not until it's all over.

You can start thinking of your top 15, though... which won't be too simple, because you'll have to rank them (not alphabetical).

I think the list is more of a comment on how many films that we DON'T see.  It isn't that the greatest films are made post 90, but it's that the demographic of this board are people who watched the majority of the films from the 90s.

Those older critics have decades more experience.
