No sorry, but that is just WRONG! WTWTA is a beautiful, magical gem, which is underated if anything.

I would like to add:

The Master, Inland Empire and Zodiac.


Yes. In my opinion Zodiac is a masterpiece of meticulous direction, brilliant, deliberate pacing and a fantastic script. I watched it recently and it's still such an absorbing film that I hope people will appreciate in the future.

500 Days of Summer?

It's pretty highly rated at the moment, at least amongst most of the people I know. If anything I think time won't be kind to this film, it's "alternative" for alternative's sake, Zooey Deschanel has to be the most annoying love interest in a film ever, and JGL's character is just sort of lame

I understand what you're saying, but even I was surprised how much I liked it (which, of course, isn't a pre-cursor to a film being considered a future classic, lol!). I was expecting it to be a Juno-type movie, i.e. painfully cool, snappy dialogue, borderline annoying characters, etc., but there was definitely an emotional integrity to the film, moreso if you identify with JGL's character and his various trials in the movie.

You're probably right about it missing out on dead-on classic status, but it's a close-run thing IMO.

There's a touches of many films in Bicentennial Man it obviously reminds me of AI a little bit but is more grown up in many respects.

It's a bit mawkish at times, but there's a certain charm to it which is very endearing.

The Rules of Attraction is one of the greatest films ever made, directed by Roger Avery, we remember him as the other half that brought you a little flick called, PULP FICTION! This is a poignet story of college kids trying to find their path in life, the several choices ahead of them and how they decide to choose them. The soundtrack, the shots, color pallet, acting, editing, it is a work of art that was not as well received as it should have been. It will continue to be on the greatest pieces in modern cinema.

I personally felt it was an extremely pompous,pretentiously indulgent film that's concept was told in a cold un-engaging manner.
I hear the books good though.

I have been making a case for 'The Place Beyond The Pines' in recent weeks with friends and what not.
I do agree with the general consensus that there is a whole section that probably doesn't need to be there and it does struggle slightly with it's indie+epic tragic sensibilities but I do feel in years to come it may be looked upon as something special and admirable in it's scope and objectives. Kinda like 'Once Upon A Time In America' and 'A Bronx tale' in a way.

I'd say this, too. I thought it was brilliant, but I can see it being well looked upon in the future for the reasons you stated. Ambitious and powerful film.

To The Wonder is another from this year that I'd say will be seen in years to come and be admired. I reckon enough people already admire Tree Of Life for that to count here, but To The Wonder wasn't as well received.
