I really ought to watch Attack the Block and The Rover again. Liked them a lot, but have only watched them once.

Bit late now, but I should have swapped The Social Network for either The Revenant or Nightcrawler.

Safety not Guaranteed? Cmon that shit wasn't that good at all. A mediocre episode of the league by comparison. Hot tub time machine was better than that movie.

Didn't want to include more than one movie by the same director in the list. Was really torn between the two, but The Neon Demon felt like it was made to just for me.

Liking some of Tommy's under appreciated picks.

Good call on Winter's Boner, didn't realize it was this decade

I like Incendies as the Villeneuve pick


I think I'd include Moonlight, Elle and Carol, maybe The Handmaiden too

Can't believe how hard you guys are riding for The Revenant, that movie didn't do shit except nearly kill it's stars in service of good cinematography

it's too early. gotta have Moonlight though. must have it. this movie is in a modern goats discussion

also to do this list I feel like you have to start with a number first and pare down from there.

I started with a longass list but with only 1 movie per each director, and cut down to my 10 most favorite

top 10:

Inherent Vice
Elle
Spring Breakers
Raid 2
Under The Skin
Mad Max Fury Road
Drive
Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy
Hard To Be A God
Carol

The Rest:

Hobo With A Shotgun
Winter's Bone
Moonlight
Kill List
Amer
Un Prophete
Drive
Upstream Color
Tangerine
Black Swan
The Witch
The Counselor
Dredd
Drug War
Grand Budapest Hotel
Scott Pilgrim vs The World
Incendies
Amer
The Handmaiden
Grand Budapest Hotel
Nice Guys
Zero Dark 30
Fast Five
Blue Ruin
Lego Movie
Get Out
13 Assassins
Dredd
Attack The Block
The American
Nice Guys
Piranha 3D
Guardians 2
Final Master
Purge 2
The Drop

This shit reminds me I've still never seen Act of Killing or Amour or Uncle Boonmee or a bunch of other critical hits

Also makes me realize that a few things I ostensibly liked a whole lot when I saw them didn't actually leave a big impression on me - Django and H8, Social Network, Gravity, Wolf Of Wallstreet, American Hustle, etc... and I've actually grown to full-on hate Inception with time

This one looks odd next to the other movies. Haven't seen it myself though.

Unmentioned films, that I can think of right now, which are up there, would be:

Silence (by Scorsese)
Animal Kingdom
I Saw the Devil
The Yellow Sea / The Wailing (same director)

I feel like namedropping more films but they don't realistically figure in a top 10 or something like that.

It's excellent. Watched it purely for the wrong reasons, but ended up being blown away by just how superb a drama it was. Three hour movie and time flew by so quickly.

Is The Wailing really that good? Keep falling asleep every time I try to watch it on Netflix.

Here's a hot take. I'll take Dredd over either Raid movies.
I'll see myself out.

The start is a bit rough but I was entranced for the better part of the film. The Japanese character is just awesome.

Ziekefons made a great call re: Wolf.

I also forgot Dheepan and Victoria, two other upper-tier Eurofilms.

I've seen Spring Breakers and I liked the movie, but can you please explain your reasoning for putting it in your top 10, Drizzle?
