I think it's a masterpiece; tough to watch, but still a masterpiece.



Requiem For a Dream will definitely make my ballot. In my opinion, it contains the single best horror movie performance from a female actress (Ellen Burstyn).

A decent dose of overlaps at the top, and very few concert/live films this time.



I recently rewatched the Lord of the Rings trilogy. It was great and boy weren't those different times. Then there's that Hobbit trilogy...let's forget those. I think if one were to make my list it would be Fellowship but probably won't include any in my top 25. The trilogy as a whole could make it but my missing vote won't keep all three out of the top 25.

Considering that all three made it into the recent MoFo Refresh Countdown, I won't be surprised if all three make it into this countdown.

No Capote or Munich in either top 20….. 😞

I was pretty surprised that “Troy” or “Bourne Supremacy” wasn’t on either list, mostly just the popular list, those films were a pretty big deal back in 2004

In the "popular" list, Capote was at #41 and Munich at #35.

Awe damn, a good ways off.
But that's no big deal. It just means that more people saw other films, which counts as "popular". Both films have fairly solid ratings on the site (3.6 and 3.7). But considering we're talking about two dramas, one of them a biopic and the other based in real-life events, it makes sense that more people saw stuff like Revenge of the Sith, Batman Begins, or King Kong, even if most of those had worse ratings.
