  1. I just didn't appreciate Blade Runner as a film. Great idea, reeeeaaally crap film.

  4. Your "best"! Losers always whine about their best. Winners go home and fuck the prom queen.

    Yes. Perfectly okay, you fucking idiot.

    That's how. Sometimes we need the simpler, less intelligent, more explosive-packed things in life ;)

    Where the hell is the Back to the Future trilogy?!?! :-P

  6. You forgot The Italian Job. There can be no excuse for its omission.

    02 Dec 2004, 10:43

  7. I didn't forget it, I just don't rate it that highly.
    Similarly with Back to the Future. It's amusingly silly but not good enough to get on my list.

    hmm…I see Pirates at 50…oh well…it'll be gone as soon as I get round to watching Se7en or Donnie Darko. Actually it should be gone already, cos of Eternal Sunshine, but what the hell…

  8. Hmmm clearly Blade Runner isn't a bad film. It is certainly considerably better than Equilibrium, which was totally laughable, a pitiful mish-mash of Orwell and the Matrix, with a dire plot, and sadly some equally poor performances from actors who should know better, e.g. Christian Bale and Sean Bean.

    Dude, you're a finalist. Go do some sodding work already!

  10. @ Benjamin: Yes it is, but its silly and has good action sequences. And as I pointed out with The Rock, sometimes I prefer that kind of thing. Bladerunner, while very good is just a little too incoherent for my liking.

    @ Rob: Ta. Whatever would I do without you? (Probably "Not go skiing this year" is an appropriate answer to that.)

  11. Rob

    Precisely. So go get some work done so you can come skiing :) (Btw to all the rest of you bloggers i am on my year out in France teaching English a massive 12/14 hours a week in a lycee and attempting to fill the entire rest of my time with snow-based or bar-based activities. Sucess so far = pretty good.)

  14. A what now?

    Incidentally, while we may be neeks, at least we can spell and type :-P

  15. Filmaholic

    I can't believe the godfather is not up there. Probably the greatest film ever made.

  16. At the time I wrote this list I hadn't seen it. I have now, but it's still not there because it is incredibly boring. So there.
