I'd forgotten about Fanny and Alexander, a great film. Reminded me of another visual treat, Orlando.
"She's a very charming and delightful creature, and has only one fault that I know of. It happens, unfortunately, that that single blemish is a want of taste. She don't like me."

There Will Be Blood could also easily make my list (ditto Magnolia, Boogie Nights)

Schwarzenegger jokes aside, There Will Be Blood would be on my top 10 list.

That's one movie I'll always be out of step with society.

I'm letting it go, tired of repeating myself frankly.

Haven't seen There will be blood. Nor have I seen No country for old men. Somehow I mix these two movies up anyway. Weird.

Those two weren't even the best movies that came out that year, that would be The Assassination of Jesse James by the coward Robert Ford

Haven't seen that one either.

Really, I have quite a big gap in movies I still need to watch, with that I mean some of the bigger names movies people seem to like in general.
Previous three mentioned movies, The Departed, Shutter Island, Intouchables, any marvel movie aside of the Avengers & Iron Man 1.

But I did see things like +1.

Assassination is really great, but no where near the same league as There Will Be Blood or No Country For Old Men in my opinion. Also, I don't think you're alone there, Tyson. I think "society" in terms of mass appeal barely knows what There Will Be Blood is, let alone enjoys it.

Yeah, I have to agree with this though I'd probably say No Country For Old Men is my favorite of the three.

You can't be serious, There Will be Blood isn't some obscure new wave French film.

No he's probably right. No Country For Old Men really overshadowed it's release. I would say three out of five have heard of it and only ond in five have actually seen it.

Yes, it's changed. A 'top 10' film list isn't like "my favoritest swimsuit model ever". It's ever evolving, morphing, changing, interchanging.

You can't capture it in a bottle and keep it there for life.

You dolt.
