    It's insane for me to think that Matrix, Jurassic Park and Goodfellas are out of the tournament.

    Unless you're abiding by Matrix sequels lore, in which case there are 7 "The Ones"

    Yes, we'll take a month and a half off and we'll begin the nominations process for the decade of the 2000s around mid-July for the voting to begin in August and finish in November.

    No Country for Old Men will compete with the LOTR's trilogy.

    I am one of the few that thought NCFOM deserved its Oscar, but for the sheer scope, detail and magnitude I would be extremely disappointed if LOTR didn't win it.

    BTW, maybe its good to get this discussion out of the way, but the LOTR will be entered as the entire trilogy and not 3 distinct films for the competition, yes?

    LOTR would have to be nominated and seconded as three individual films.

    The 2000s was a great decade of movies. But you can say that about literally any decade, honestly. I have tons of titles I'd love to nominate.

    Really, I love the 70's:
    Godfather
    Godfather II
    Jaws
    One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest
    Star Wars
    The French Connection
    The Seven Ups
    The Exorcist
    Apocalypse Now
    Taxi Driver
    Alien
    A Clockwork Orange
    China Town
    Rocky
    Close Encounters
    All the President's Men
    The Deer Hunter
    The Sting
    MASH
    A Dog Day's Afternoon
    Halloween
    Deliverance
    Dirty Harry
    Monty Python and the Holy Grail
    Marathon Man

    And that's just off of the top of my head. I could go on, and on!

    I was really hoping for the 70s, as it is perhaps the best decade of movie making of all time.

    See the first post of this thread for when we will get to the '70s. Spoiler alert: not very soon

    And speaking of the '70s, I just finished creating my Top 30 lists for each year from 2018 going back all the way to 1970: https://letterboxd.com/maemiddleton/lists/by/name/ Took a long time, but it's been really fun.

    Thanks - I'll just have to wait it out. I really do think that the 1970s produced the best crop of movies we will ever see in a 10 year span. It was a true golden age of film, especially American film.

    I appreciate all you do to organize this. I'll have to check out some of your 70s foreign films.
