To catch up on recent new entries

The Apartment-10/10. My all-time favourite film. Beautifully written comedy, finely balances humour and tragedy.
Turner & Hooch- 10/10. My most watched film. I'll be the only person giving it full marks, but I absolutely love it
Last Crusade- 9/10.
The Big Lebowski- 9/10. One of the Coen's best, with superb performanes throughout, notably from Jeff Bridges
The French Connection- 8/10

I really like the idea of this thread, the list prsented is a good one just inacrate prosotion wise.  And BeetleJuice your not alone I still haven't seen TAOJJBTCRF, but am sure when I do I will either love it or hate it, anyway when I get more time i'll do a few short reviews on the ones i've seen. 
But for the record Fargo is overated, it's good, but far from their best film which I would say is a tie between The Big Lebowiski and No Country For Old Men.

This would have never happened with me in charge. Then again, Beetlejuice is doing a fantastic job, both with the ratings, the list and his other threads.

Beauty and the Beast- 6/10
A charming animation, but it pales in comparison to Cocteauís 40ís version. I used to love this, but now I find it slightly overrated.

My Neighbour Totoro- 8/10
A great animation, utterly charming and endlessly watchable. Muyazakiís world view is unique even within the Anime canon, and it should be celebrated.

Trading Places- 3/10
Iím no fan of the majority of 80ís comedies, and this one is no exception. Typically below-par stuff, which is occasionally watchable, but usually just tedious.

Badlands- 10/10
Near-perfect in every aspect, Badlands is minimalist, quiet, compelling and poetic. Itís tone and style has been imitated since, but no film has been capable of summoning the same magic and genius as Malickís crime film.

The Apartment- 9/10
The screenplay is the best part of Wilderís film (like usual), but thatís not to downplay the rest of the film. Wilder directs with flair, and Lemmon and Maclaine deliver two of their finest performances. As far as rom-comís go, itís not afraid to push itself into new, darker territory, and it ranks among the best films of the genre.

WALL-E was just cute as a button, not Pixar's best as a lot of recent critics will have you believe (as adorable a robot as he is, the rest of the supporting characters can't match that of the Toy Story's or Monsters, Inc.)
9/10

WALL-E
A very good film, with moments that will have you in stitches. I loved the kick backs to silent comedy and, in particular, the 2001 A Space Odyssey references. It's also adorable, with Wall-E himself bein as cute as a button, and the romance being sweet as hell. But it is flawed... the social commentary is a little bit obvious and it was ruined slightly by the crying baby sitting in front of me. I agree it's not Pixar's best, I think I can name five that are better (Toy Story, Finding Nemo, Toy Story 2, Monsters Inc and - Pixar's real best - A Bug's Life), but overall it's a success. 8/10.

With every update more films have to get added to my rental queue. I've only seen 2 of the Top 10!

Is Late Spring a stand alone film or is it a sequel/prequel of sorts to Tokyo Story and Early Summer? I will get around to watching all 3 but I don't know if there is an order to them or if they are stand alone films. My knowledge of Ozu is sadly limited.

They're all stand-alone films. Despite what the DVD boxset says, they're not an official trilogy.  I found it best to start with Tokyo Story, though. It's a great introduction to his work.

I went to a production of Beauty and the Beast in a park in Lancaster where each scene was in a different location and you followed the actors to each scene it was simply spellbounding, quite erie in places too

Sansho the Bailiff (1954)
Visually stunning, heartwrenching epic about family sold into prostitution and slavery in 11th century Japan. This classic is appreciated by the art-house crowd, cinema students, drama lovers seeking heavy-themed, well-crafted tragedy.

The Wind (1928)
Harrowing, heart-wrenching silent melodrama. Gish plays Southern waif who faces hardship and brutality when she moves to Texas prairie. A must for cineastes and fans of the silent screen.

I'm seeing The Dark Knight in less than two hours, so I'll rate it then, which pretty much makes this post redundant.
