    Thanks for the link. I see Jackie on there. Reminds me that I must see that movie. I haven't heard anything about it but when I saw the trailer I was pretty excited.

    I'm way too unorganised a person to keep track of what I watch. That's why I always fail at maintaining my list on here. I made my lists just by googling top rated films. There are plenty of films I loved which I didn't include because I didn't see them, like The Double and Uncle John.

    Oh, I'm goin' slap happy! I'm goin' slap slap happy! Slappity slapping ya, teachin' ya a lesson for comin' in my house!

    I don't know if these are ranked but I really like your lists, Heather. Melancholia definitely will be near the top of my 2011 list.

    There are lots of sources, including Wikipedia, IMDB, RT, etc.

    Yes, I tried to rank them. I used Wikipedia but it didn't give me a complete list, so then I went to RT and then Google. And I did my favorite/best films of the years. I feel like my lists were very different from everyone else's.

    That's a good thing! Variety is the spice of life and who wants to read the same list over and over again?

    Some of my picks for 2010 had limited screenings in 2009 but were not available in America until 2010, should they remain?

    I always go by IMDB years.

    Here's the RT link but it's only their top 100: https://www.rottentomatoes.com/top/bestofrt/?year=2016

    This is from Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:2016_films

    And IMDB: http://www.imdb.com/search/title?yea...er_rating,desc

    Don't ask me why, but the last 3 copies I have found of Melancholia had no disc inside.

    The variety of these lists are going to help all of us come up with comprehensive individual lists for each year. The truly hard part is going to be whittling down all the years and creating a list of our favorite films of the decade. It's also exciting to think that there might be films that haven't even been conceived yet that we might end liking more than some of our favorites. Very cool.

    Your list mirrors my own in many ways. The glaring film for me is This is 40. I'm not quite sure what you and Matt see in that one. It's certainly not better than a few of the films you have it ahead of like Silver Linings Playbook, Mud and Looper. It also doesn't come close to Knocked Up.

    Well, Knocked Up is another year. I just generally like Apatow and the cast. I had a very good time with it.

    I know Knocked Up was a different year. I was just trying to gauge whether or not you preferred This is 40 over Knocked Up.

    I don't know if I do. I checked my 2007 list and it didn't even make it: http://www.thedarktower.org/palaver/...l=1#post818311 Probably just an omission on my part, I have been thinking of perhaps redoing some of my older lists as I've seen other films I missed then or gained a better appreciation for others.

    Actually, my list would have one more Scarlett Johansson film - Don Jon. I really enjoyed that one. She had a great year, I didn't even realize that.

    Matt is going to like your list. Under the Skin, Her and The Double are all favorites of his. I have a lot of similarities with your list too. Mine would have American Hustle higher. The same for We're the Millers. That's one of the better comedies in recent years.

    I wasn't a huge fan of Under The Skin, actually. It didn't really do it for me. Too abstract without the entertainment value, and several sequences were just seemingly cut and paste. And I love abstract pieces, but I didn't find it visually engaging or overly intriguing either. I do mean to rewatch it at some point. I prefer The Double to Enemy but Enemy is still great. The Double is one of those movies which should be on my list but didn't see on my quick google searches so I'll have to make amendments to my list at some point.

    Oh, I'm goin' slap happy! I'm goin' slap slap happy! Slappity slapping ya, teachin' ya a lesson for comin' in my house!

    Under the Skin was amazing. So beautiful and haunting. I'm sad it's not more widely known and respected. Tremendous film.

    To me it just sat there on the screen :/ By the end when I think I was suppose to feel something I was numb to it all. Upstream Color is way better imo.
