The Jackie hatred on here just doesn't let up. If I ever get around to seeing Black Panther I reckon I'll enjoy it.

I definitely don't hate Black Panther, and I think it's great how much it connected with an underrepresented audience. 5/10 for me, very standard Marvel fare with notably shit cg fight scenes. I only mentioned it cos I thought most of the rest of the list was pretty spot on. Same with The Lost City of Z - actually could have been really good but Charlie Hunnam is just a terrible actor. Extremely handsome though.

Wasn't aware that Jackie hatred was common here but I do think it's really shit. And I was so excited for it too, what with the great trailer and Mica Levi score. Just found it so empty and boring - up there with Drive at the top of my critically acclaimed films I actively hate list.

Lots of Tinker Tailer Soldier Spy love here and I very much agree.

Christine came out in the 80s. Duh! And it is a bit cheesy. I mean, a killer car? As if!

There is nothing more more timely or more evergreen than a big red car on fire running over Jerk Fonzie.

I definitely don't hate Black Panther

I'll happily stick my hand up and say (again) that I hated it - terrible acting, ropey script, mostly dodgy CGI (even compared with dodgy CGI in general), and SO right-on and knowing it feels badly dated already.

Having said that, Guardians of the Galaxy 2 hovers at the very top - and by a BIG margin - of my list of recent abominable major blockbuster films.  It's a bun fight between that and Last Jedi.

Plenty I haven't seen but it gives the impression of more of the same as Indiewires for me, some good stuff but mixed in with a few rather backhanded nods to the mainstream,  political grandstanding, obscurism, overplaying recently hyped films and Wes Anderson.

Found Zama to be a bit of a disappointment, not bad but more a navel gazing version of Aguirre that preffers to wallow in IMHO not especially interesting obtuseness rather than really commit to its story.

Team America as the 10th best film of the last 20 years. Hmm.

My Top Ten of the Twenty Tens. No particular order.

Hard To Be A God

Tangerine

Le Quattro Volte

The Turin Horse


The Woman In Black*


Kill List

Under The Skin

Blue Valentine

Toy Story 3

November


Just thrown together off the top of my head, know. Probably a bunch of really obvious stuff I’m forgetting about. Widows. Anomalisa. Rocketman. Hagazussa. Maybe they should be on there? Maybe they would be, if I was thinking about it yesterday or tomorrow instead of today. Who knows? 

* The uncut version, I mean, not the fucked about with version that was released in the UK with the howls all knotted and the shrieks all dulled.

EDIT: Fuck, The Lego Movie. Should be on there, but I dunno what I'd take out to make room for it. Balls.

How did "worst film ever" Zero Dark Thirty make the list? Were only 100 films released this decade or something?
