Better than the above films? You're mad man.


Is it awesome? Fuck yes man, it was one of the best cinema experiences ever and I'd rather watch this over Avatar. In fact..........


Spongebob Sqaurepants>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Avatar.

32 The Spongebob Squarepants Movie (2004)

Yes, the Spongebob Squarepants movie is better (imo) than all the above movies (including Avatar which I saw today). It's true. When I saw this I hadn't seen even one episode, but I thought it was hilarious and still do. It's anarchic and silly and never gets old. In some ways it reminds me of the attitiude of the Monty Python movies and I'm not at all embarrassed about liking it or putting it this high up the list.


One million stars!!!

Matchstick Men is also magnificent. It's the best "non-Adaptation" Cage film of the decade and the best film Scott has made in years.

31 Spirited Away (2001)

Even better than Spongebob though is this dazzling animation. It's such a weird story whilst still feeling really human in a way which i connect with.





30 Dead Man's Shoes (2004)

A big shane meadows fan so this is a no brainer, and paddy Considine's performance is so menacing yet tragic, it's startling.





29 Lost in Translation (2003)

This film struck a nerve with me as soon as I saw it the first time so it feels quite personal and means something. But also it's just really confidently made and executed. I know it's hated by as many as love it (My wife didn't see the appeal "nothing happens") so maybe not for everyone, but I like it.






28 Che Part 1(2009)

Easily my favourite Soderbergh film, this blew me away (not so happy with part 2 though) plus the digital presentation in the cinema was stunning esp the climactic shootout.

God I hate that criticism. Nice inclusion, would make my top 30 as well.

Any man who can admit to a love of The Spongebob Squarepants Movie without an ounce of shame is a good man in my books.

Though Scarlett Johansson drags it down somewhat.

It would probably make my top 150 but I just think it's a bit all over the place and was a bit disappointing for me after the first 2. Plus I still think it was a mistake to axe Christopher Lee from the theatrical cut.

Watching Che just this week and loving both The Argentine and Guerrilla (it beats calling them Part 1 and Part 2) equally, what did you dislike about Guerrilla?

27 In Bruges (2008)

Just thinking about this film makes me laugh. I couldn't believe the humour used, especiall in this ultra-pc world we currently live in. Colin Farrell is great, like an unhinged Father Dougal with a gun, Gleeson is the best I've seen him too. Ralph Fiennes turn as the foul mouthed boss cracks me up "is he 'avin a wee or a poo?", the french bird is gorgeous and oh so watchable plus it has a midget. "they're filming midgets!" - Ray is right to get excited.
Love this movie and am actually sad that it isn't higher placed, but that's because there's even better films to come.





26 WALL-E (2008)

I've read a few comments recently that people don't "get it". What's to get? at it's mighty heart this film is a simple love story, or rather crush story. Wall-E has got the hots for EVE and he's got 'em bad. It's a perfect reason to root for the little fella. On top of that he's go the whole planet to save. Not bad for a rustbucket. It's funny, wondrous & at times, very emotional. Pitch perfect really. Can't fault it.

It just bored me to be honest. Part 1 left me wanting to see more, but the second one seemed to offer nothing too exciting. In my defence (cos i know I sound like a philistine wanting "more action" here) I was very tired the day I went to see it after a long day at uni and was probably not in the right mood.
My mind may change once I watch it again in the future, which I will.
But for now, It can't possibly make the 100 cos there's films I liked better.

No one will be judging you of a philistine here.

That's a shame though, Guerrilla quite moved me (well my first listening of Balderamma did), and it was certainly better than Avatar (saw it on the same day with that WTWTA), and it does provide an interesting counter to the rise and success featured in The Argentine.

Also I found it more dramatic than The Argentine.

25 American Splendor (2003)

Superb indie story. It's about creativity, depression and the eccentricities in all of us. Paul Giammatti's performance is astounding, he really does channel Harvey Pekar. The mixture of styles used in the film's delivery are well used and it's funny. Really really funny.
Should've won about a million Oscars.

When it comes to comparing films that really have no place being compared, Devi, you're still the gold standard.

I share frankie's feelings on Che - Part 1's fantastic, but Part 2's messy and not as striking. Del Toro's impeccable throughout, though.

Which part of "saw it on the same day", the reason I I mentioned Avatar, did you not grasp oh Mr. PA?

Del Toro's accent was a bit annoying by me, at some parts it sounded Argentinian, in others, Mexican. I thought Guerrilla was actually better told than The Argentine, the linear narrative (while not as ambitious) gave it a better structure. IMO.

Anyway, both are great, and you suck PA.

The part where it read like you'd seen WTWTA that day and Che some other time because your handle on English only seems to get worse with every passing day.

Fantastic black comedy horror from who else but Sam Raimi.The scary bits are really scary and the funny bits are really funny. And Alison Lohman is simply fantastic to watch.

23 No Country For Old Men (2007)

A stunning movie which is up there with the Coen's best stuff. I initially had resevations about the last 20 minutes of the film, but the more I see it (and I have watched it a few times now) the more I think it's exactly the right ending for the story.






22 Little Miss Sunshine (2006)

A punch the air movie that it's OK to like. The characters here are so well drawn. Performances are excellent ( I love Toni Collette in everything) and it's laugh out loud funny (especially the family dancing to Rick james' Superfreak) + cry out loud sad. One that I like recommending to friends who haven't seen it as the family here are so easy to relate to. Surely nobody dislike this, right?





21 Memento (2000)

Just missing out on the top 20, which is a real shame, is Chris nolan's best film so far. It's expertly put together and whilst I was initially confused by the whole thing, it make perfect sense on repeated viewing.
Brilliant.


Top 20 next. Hoping to announce number 1 on Christmas eve.

Really? On the surface it's not really my kind of thing either, but once I'd seen it I couldn't stop laughing at it's daftness. makes me laugh just to think about it actually. I think Elf & Stranger Than Fiction are the only other Ferrell films I could sit through again (neither will appear in the rest of this list though.)

18 Happy Go Lucky (2008)


There had to be a Mike Leigh film on here and this to me is one of his best. I get the crticism of this film that the main character is too irritating to root for, but i think that's the appeal.
This film challenged me into taking a look at how I perceive people. Poppy is irritating, but she has the best of intentions, always. Whereas Scott the driving instructor is someone who thinks that being reserved in personality will hide his shortcomings. It doesn't. He's arrogant, selfish and very aggressive. Eddie Marsden plays him brilliantly. Poppy isn't perfect, she makes ill judged choices and I don't always agree with what she says or how she says it, but she tries. I got past the irritability factor and really liked her. I think that's crucial to liking the film. Leigh's films are good at exploring all our nuances of personality in some depth. Like excellently scripted documentaries.
Also, the film has one of my favourite endings of any film. It's a simple rowing boat scene, but manages to sum up the whole thing in a few lines. Just perfect really.

Did Paul Thomas Anderson kick your puppy as a child or something? That's the only way I can rationalise this mad vendetta you seem to have against There Will Be Blood in my mind.

Because every time someone says that, you know it's that much harder for you to turn around and admit you were wrong for fear of embarrassing yourself even more?
