The MoFo Top 100 of the 2000s Countdown

Re: The MoFo Top 100 of the 2000s Countdown

Yeah, I admit I'm not sure either. Maybe I just watched it so much I developed a deeper affinity for it, too. That seems to be a thing sometimes.

I think the violence is pretty important: none of the paranoia or terror really works otherwise. I guess, just in talking about this, this particular point has helped me clarify why I didn't respond...

Let's say these are the options for now, and wait a couple of days at least to see if anyone feels strongly about adding more.

Amusingly, I was thinking three options is fine for "one vote each,"...

The poll option here has no facility for that, so it'd have to be done outside of that system.

I'm not sure if that's worth the potential effort (or even confusion, given that people tend to argue...

I think it depends on the number of options. If it's just, say, three, I think people should pick one. If it's too many, though, it splits the vote and letting people vote more than once makes it...

Inglorious Basterds was my #1 film.

I said earlier (I think?) that I went with a mix of films I thought were objectively great, and the ones I got the most pure enjoyment over, and while there's...

I suppose I'd agree that it "gave" us that, but I think it did so by just sort of...throwing it out there. It felt like pure exposition. I suppose, then, I preferred the trade off wherein we got less...

Re: The Videogames Tab

There is very little violence, and the majority of said violence can be potentially skipped.

Played The Forgotten City. Eight hours, one day, all endings. If I'd been content with one ending I'd have spent more like four, and the "good" ending, maybe five and a half?

Re: Foreign countdown's done: what's next?

I don't recall offhand, since I'm kinda swamped I'd lean towards putting a poll up shortly after, though.

Do we think there's at least a strong consensus on what the several options should be,...

Re: The MoFo Top 100 of the 2000s Countdown

Anyway, my opinion on The Departed has moved quite a bit over the years.

I saw it in theaters, with a packed house, and people were really into it. I thought it was very fun, and enjoyed it...but...

Re: The MoFo Top 100 of the 2000s Countdown

I think The Departed does. I saw Infernal Affairs and it was...messy. One could say it was at a disadvantage since I saw it second (fair), but it was at an advantage in the sense that I already knew...

Tremendous job, Sleezy! Such a cool idea for a thread, and you obviously put a lot of thought into it.

I dunno. It was on FX, it got some critical acclaim, but I don't think it was ever a smash hit exactly. Anyway, it's excellent. It's pretty episodic at first (but good even then), and gets more...

Re: Justified: City Primeval

Encouraging thing, I think, is that this is actually based on another Leonard novel (apparently a pretty good one) and isn't just some showrunner extending things themselves.

Re: Justified: City Primeval

Oh man, yes, do that. It ends pretty well. And gets better as it goes (generally).

I've been looking for an excuse to either rewatch it, or rewatch some of it, and this should do the trick.
