    I did not see the appeal of grand Budapest.

    Gladiator, call me by your name should be higher. Glad to see Before Sunset and Philomena on there.

    Gladiator is a quintessential dick flick. It's fine where it is, maybe should be a little higher.

    MoviePass is finally dead. It did create a significant disruption but wasn't able to find a business model that worked, and mob tactics failed as well. It did hasten the arrival of subscription plans like AMC A-List and Regal Unlimited so that was good. I was a member for four years (even before the price drop) and saved well over $1000 over that time and saw movies I wouldn't have seen otherwise. But the company was shady as hell and did try those mob tactics with the theaters, so it will not be missed.

    List seems about right. No glaring omissions that I can see. Lots of movies on there I have not seen yet.

    1 Tarantino Film? And not even close to the best one since 2000. Not even close. The list is garbage.

    Hell Or High Water is awesome. But yeah, that list is garbage.

    NCFOM is the ultimate example of people liking a movie because they are supposed to like it. Awkward silence and scenes where characters stare for no reason doesnt make something a great film.

    The Cohen Brothers best film will always be Raising Arizona.

    I havent read the list but the few things I have heard about it makes me not want to read it anyways.

    so mookieís all time #1 makes the list (at 77)

    These are better served with a link for each movie on where to go and stream. Sure different countries, etc. but at least a start

    Oh and I completely missed Gravity on there. Way too high. It was good, but not that good. Iím shocked Inception, Interstellar, Spiderverse, Three Billboards, Kill Bill, Django, and of the lord of the rings, Pixar, and revenant didnít make it. Little surprised Downfall didnít make it.

    I am happy The Departed didnít make it.

    Oh man, arrival wasnít on there. Neither was Dunkirk. Also glad Shape of Water didnít make it, blech. La La Land probably should have made the top 100. Manchester by the Sea didnít make it (so good even Kepler loved this Boston love-fest).

    Dunkirk wasn't as good as everyone thinks it was. Just because Nolan makes a movie doesn't automatically mean it's a classic.

    Agreed. I couldn't get into that movie at all.

    Seriously, what a great movie. Gets better the more you think about it.

    Neither was Dunkirk.
    Great movie if they didn't do the whole out-of-order thing for no reason (other than Nolan gets a hard-on from that)

    La La Land probably should have made the top 100.
    LA jerk-off fest.

    Manchester by the Sea didn’t make it (so good even Kepler loved this Boston love-fest).
    Very good if not comically depressing.

    The purpose of lists like this is not to rank the best movies. It's to generate clicks by inciting anger and controversy. The best way to do that with kids movies and SF is leave them off so the fanboys will blow a gasket.

    I'm surprised they didn't throw something like Human Centipede on as "a dark reflection of our times." People would go Twitter Psycho for that.
