Enough of us it seems.

And there's a review from me in the top 100 thread this year if you need blurbing.

Duel is great. If only War Horse had been like that.

I want to see Tom Hanks character from that film getting murdered by a fucking big tanker truck.

I read this thread before I saw the actual update and got all excited. Still, robots are as good as ducks.

Barry Lyndon-Pretty good
Deer Hunter-Also pretty good, though it should've spent more time in Vietnam
Solaris-My least favourite Tarkovsky of the ones I've seen, but I still really rate it.

Get Carter - good (but I can't really remember much of it).

Get Carter - fantastic.

The Deer Hunter - I like it a lot and reviewed it last year if you want blurbing.

Silent Running - haven't watched in an age, but remember liking it.

Maybe it doesn't work out of context.

TRM scored higher than me on Spy Who Loved Me? I demand a recount!

Are there more Bonds to come?

Two-Lane Blacktop is great.

The Hour-Glass Sanitorium is incredible. Creepy, funny and all round so enjoyable to watch (the set is fantastic). I can't remember who nominated it for the Hall of Fame, but so many thanks to them.

The Spirit of the Beehive bored me senseless.

I already said it isn't. Stop being provocative.

Isn't more than none already too many? Especially when it's Roger Moore. Roger Ramjet would have been more convincing.

MASH - amazing - one of my favourite film scripts.

Love and Death - in my top 3 for Allen for sure.

Cabaret - two fantastic performances, amazing music and some brilliant bits of directing. One of my favourite musicals.

The Shout - really interesting.

At least it broke the top 50, I guess.

Some other great stuff in there too. But if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go find a cold, damp corner so as to cry over the fact that Stalker didn't win.

Rocky Horror - awesome.

Manhattan - great. Nice review too.

Hedgehog in the Fog - very good.

Don't Look Now - boring.

The Sting - good.

F for Fake - incredible. One of the best documentaries I've seen and slowly creeping up my list of favourites as well

Annie Hall - gorgeous.

The Omen - silly but creepy.

Picnic at Hanging Rock - haunting and wonderful.

Star Wars - no strong feelings about.

M*A*S*H is excellent.

Deliverance is brilliant.

Love and Death - hilarious.

Serpico - very good, with an excellent Al Pacino performance, but Lumet did better in the '70s.

Deep Red - really liked it.

The Shout - also liked this.

All the President's Men - superb. Too low.

Rocky - stop beating All the President's Men, yo.

Stalker - excellent. I thought that was an '80s film for some reason.

Manhattan - very good, but not my favourite Allen of that decade.

The Last Picture Show - haunting, beautiful and very good indeed.

Don't Look Now - horrifying.

The Sting - good fun, but I prefer Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. Review in this year's top 100 thread if you need blurbifying.

Annie Hall - see Manhattan.

Dirty Harry - excellent.

The Omen - chilling.

Picnic at Hanging Rock - chilling. Haunting. Beautiful. Masterpiece.

Star Wars - yeah, it's OK.
