Am I out of touch?

| | Comments (7)

Looking at the National Board of Review's top 10 film lists, it appears that I have seen an average of 7 out of 10 of their favourite films for each year, at least dating back to 1989. However, this year I have seen 0 out of 10. 2003 was also below average, but there are a couple I'll probably rent one of these days. I've seen just as many flms this year as ever, maybe even more than usual, but I have little to no desire to see any of this year's top 10. What's up with that?

(2004:0; 2003:5; 2002:8; 2001:7; 2000:7; 1999:6; 1998:7; 1997:7; 1996:6; 1995:7; 1994:9; 1993:7; 1992:8; 1991:8; 1990:7; 1989:9)

Between 86 and 91 I was seeing 9 or 10 of the films on the list. I didn't find them all fantastic, but I was seeing them.
Hamlet was like a "date" for scott and I. Then it drops to six or seven films for a few years. Around 96 I haven't seen more than 5 in a year. Now THAT is old...
There are 6 on this years list that I wouldn't mind seeing, but I bet they are mostly renters.

Saw finding Neverland last night and I have to say, it was good, but "if you believe in fairies" you will know that there are better films out there, I think...

I do! I do! I do believe in fairies!
Finding Neverland wasn't bad, but I wouldn't put it in my top ten.

noo said:

maybe 10 is too many to strive for in terms of "truly fantastic" movies in one year? Maybe there should be a top 3 and then some honourable mentions...

beck said:

I agree,
top three: including "Torque". Haven't seen it yet, but when I do, I will luv it.
