Ummm... I guess the next set will be better right? Daniel?

Le Trou was a very strong contender to make my list, excellent film. Ultimately it wasn't included but I had a feeling it'd show up here.

I haven't been able to make it through Mary Poppins since I was a child. I find a lot of it grating. I loved it when I was a kid though.



The thing isolated becomes incomprehensible

You too? *sighs*

Go watch The Hole!!!



Can't stand Mary Poppins. I watched Le Trou for the 5th Hall of Fame. Excellent film very simple yet incredibly gripping prison escape film. For whatever reason it never even crossed my mind, I would've just missed out anyway but it is odd that I forgot all about it.

Seen - 24/52
My List - 3/25

6.Army of Shadows
21.Whatever Happened To Baby Jane?
25.From Russia With Love

I just know another film I picked will show up soon...right?

I'm thinking Sound of Music and Easy Rider today.
Me too... so that the two won't be any higher.





While I like Le Trou, The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance, and A Fistful of Dollars very much, none of them made my list. I chose four Westerns, none of which have appeared so far. However, I did have another of my titles, the third, named in the bottom fifty: Dick Lester's A Hard Day's Night, which I had as my number twenty-one pick. If you're a Beatles fan the movie is transcendent, but even if you don't really care for them or their music, it's a heck of a lot of infectious fun and Lester's editing and sense of humor are both influential and timeless, even if capturing a version of The Beatles just as Beatlemania struck was a very specific time and opportunity.

5. Army of Shadows (#58)
19. The Battle of Algiers (#69)
21. A Hard Day's Night (#53)

Looking at my remaining twenty-two picks and the way the first half of reveals have gone, I'd say a dozen of mine are sure things, another five are very probable, four are long shots, and one has absolutely zero chance. I'll be OK with between fifteen and twenty or so of mine making it.

I didn't see Mary Poppins until I was an adult but I still liked it. Yet, the latest trailer for it is my favorite Mary Poppins-anything.

Notes


Both films were the only to receive their respective amount of points so not tie breaking was needed.



I had Elmer Gantry at #1, even before I started my list I knew that film would be my top choice. I'm disappointed to see such a great film at only #48
