There's still time God Part III, votings now open until every decade has been closed.

I never knew that about Private Life, just read the info over on IMDB. Very sad that the footage may have been lost. It's fairly deliberately paced, so I'm thinking that episodic structure may have actually worked with a longer length.
I've only seen The 400 Blows and Stolen Kisses in that series, but I'd love to see the rest. Other than those I've seen Shoot the Pianist and Jules et Jim, the latter of which is well worth the hype it gets.

And it is pretty tragic about TPLOSH, I hear that the DVD has some of the cut footage but not enough for a restoration. And surely there'll be a Sherlock Holmes revival soon. Like you said he's iconic enough for that instant audience familiarity and to be slightly cynical it would be an easy sell for a 'reimagining'. Hope they nail it though. I'll also look into The Seven Percent Solution.

one observation: it's interesting how there's much more of a "consensus" on the best films of the 70s (Godfather, Taxi Driver, Apocalypse, Star Wars) than of the 80s, 90s, or 00s.

i wonder if it's because the best films are unequivocally great, or because (i'm assuming) we're all under 40 and didn't grow up as aware of the films when they were released in the theater, but instead we caught up with much more of a defined "canon" on video. like, the farther back you go, the harder it is to find the hidden gems.

Look how my list has no mention of Empire.




Oh, and, go worry about the Red Sox, stop proofing my lists!

It's on my 80's list; it was more a "I'm at work and semi-distracted" typo than anything else.
