Re: The MoFo Top 100 of the 2000s Countdown

14. Kill Bill Vol. 1 (340 points) - I quite like both Kill Bill's as far as Tarantino goes but it didn't get considered as one of the greats of the decade.

13. WALL-E (344 points) - Think I...

Yeah, the work gone into them is hugely impressive. But it's too much nonsense for me. The levels of fantasy involved just doesn't interest me.

Re: Forest films

Wow, loads to delve into here, thanks everyone. Loved Monos and a few others.

Apocalypto is a big gap for me so I think that will be watched soon.

Forest films

I'm slightly obsessed with forests. Love 'em. Think it stems from where I grew up. Can anybody recommend some films set in forests or with a large amount of time in a forest?

All good points, perhaps it comes down to taste a little. As I said, the Departed isn't poor, just overrated. But then I appear to be in a tiny minority, so maybe it's me that's underrating it!

Yes, Infernal Affairs was much better in my opinion. The Departed just exaggerated the characters mannerisms and performances. Whereas I Affairs gave much more depth and backstory.

Yes, and the remake was eligible for this countdown I think.

Re: The MoFo Top 100 of the 2000s Countdown

Shaun of the dead - funny film, but not in contention for my ballot.

The Departed - one of the most overrated films of al time. One of Scorsese's weakest. The original is far, far better with much...

As for Oscars, it's all dependent on money not film quality, so if...
