I've seen these from that list. I bolded the ones I like, though not all of them are contenders for my ballot.



Is #95 on that list, True Detective, the TV series?

ETA: I have to say, of all the tv series that might have been chosen...

Yeah, that one definitely felt out of place.

With that being said, though I've only seen the first season, I thought it was quite good, if not great.

I’m with you. Seen 92 from this one including that first season of True Detective. Just seems super ofd when there is no other TV.

I never could get the hang of Thursdays.
I'm finding these 'best of' lists really interesting, although I can't say I agree with some of the films that keep popping up.

Here's a film that I don't think has been mentioned that much:

Contagion (2011)

I'm not a huge fan of Soderbergh's in general, but his cold, detached style works brilliantly for something that is basically a disaster movie but realistic. Not until Covid was it clear just how realistic, and that it managed to predict the pandemic from lockdowns and shortages to conspiracy theorists is quite impressive. Predictions aside, that it feels real, without any scenes of cars outrunning earthquakes or estranged dads saving their families in helicopter heroics, is the greatest achievement. The ensemble cast including Laurence Fishburne, Kate Winslet and Marion Cotillard are excellent and that you never know which famous name will be in a body bag in the next scene is a bonus.

Thanks for posting that. I had my eye on Contagion and reading that confirms I'll be watching it sooner than later.

I've seen 29/100 (there are also a couple I'm not sure about). Maybe three or four are in consideration for the bottom half of my ballot. The best of these is the one that doesn't fit - True Detective (with a season one only clause).

Thanks HL! I can't remember if I saw Elle or not. It sounds familiar but maybe that is only because of the picture Huppert.
