I believe I've had it out with MOTH about how incredibly wrong he is about The Host before, Gimli. If you're looking for fireworks, you won't get none from me. Devi and Mirror, on the other hand...

Well im sure even Devi would be able to see why someone could loathe Mirror, right?

This is Devi we're talking about. When it comes to the films he loves or the films he hates, there is no other stance. Anyone who says otherwise is killed.

The Host's position - relative and absolute - is possibly the saddest thing in the list. I'm with Moth and not as impressed by Force of Evil as others are. And it's wonderful to see Twilight Samurai so high, even if it is below a weaker Pixar

I had kind of kept quiet about that one since watching it, but it left me quite unimpressed as well. There are some good moments though.

I thought I may as well own up before it's omission comes up in the noir thread. THe next 5 short notes after no. 21 will be the remakes - I was thinking for the 5 after the no,1 entry might be the apparent slamdunks that didn't make it, although I'm not sure whether to end the classic list with 5 films I don't really like!

It should provide some discussion though. So...uh... when is the next entry due?

Since The Host turns up regularly on Film4, i'd be willing to give it a rewatch, but apart from the monster design, i didn't find it funny or scary enough to live up to either criteria in the comedy-horror description.

elab - but for an interrupted viewing of Twilight Samurai, which took me out of the moment a bit, it could well have been placed higher and i suspect a rewatch would confirm that. Plus Finding Nemo pulled on a few parental heartstrings which i didn't have the first time i seen it. Admittedly, now that i've seen it another 5 times since, it could slide down the rankings

One of the biggest films from last year which I haven't seen (and I've now remembered I can get to 99 worst by adding Terminator Salvation!) was Public Enemies, because the reception was as poor as your comment above confirms. I tend to think it would make up my missing 100th spot had I managed to see it.

HUrrah - double figures. WIth the vagaries of the first past the post system that could be a winning number!

That's a really good list. I had a big 'did you have to?' moment when I saw Dog Soldiers. And for some reason No Surrender became No Retreat, No Surrender and I thought you'd gone insane. But yeah, some really great films there and a lot of films I absolutely love.

Well I love Dog Soldiers and quite like America's Sweethearts - you probably think I secretly love No Retreat No Surrender anyway.

All I vaguely remember of it from initial release was a mullet of some sort, though. As opposed to

Elab,I thought you'd watched the Nikkatsu Noir set last year .I've only watched I Am Waiting so far but can't believe it's not made your top 100.

I did. I've tried to be consistent with what I've included by doing it by films I've reviewed, and for new ones I've tended to watch them twice (although I've included some new 2009 releases I've not seen again yet but there is no chance they are improving on me - some I haven't though, like Synedoche and Imaginarium, because I want to give them a 2nd chance before consigning them to a bottom 100!).

So I've been rewatching Nikkatsu at the moment. It'll be interesting to see how you order the set, though. Some of the background writing is interesting in the cases although they keep on referencing Big Sleep for one for its comprehensibility problems, when I keep seeing High Sierra. And there are lots of trucks.

One bit I did write though - I watched a couple of the German Edgar Wallace a while back and they were so well done that I had to use the dub rather than subtitles because the conflict between the English world I was seeing and subs was distracting me. I half felt that from the start of the first one I watched - Take Aim at the Police Van. It was so well done that when they started talking Japanese it was a real jolt! Lots of trucks, too - certainly one message the Japanese got from classic noir.
