    That's a respectable Top 10. I love it.

    Great job, as always, Mae. I hope this sparks some people to go out and rent some of these gems.

    Looking back at the list and I think we did a really good job! Even the bottom ten here are excellent films.

    You are all very welcome! I love hosting and running these, and discovering or re-discovering movies! Can't wait to dive into the incredible decade of the 1930s, which I feel was one of the best in Hollywood history! So many amazing and unique movies were made during the 1930s, some of my favorites. They certainly don't make them like that anymore! I'll be posting some of my usual food for thought links and videos for 1930s movies soon. Stay tuned!

    So as always, we take a break between our decades of this enormous tournament, but as per usual, here are some links to get you started thinking of what to nominate for the upcoming decade of the 1930s. Like I mentioned earlier, this is one of my most favorite decades of film. My all-time number one movie comes from this decade, and just overall movies made in the 1930s have a very recognizable feel to them. Here are some links to jolt your memories or maybe get you to watch some of these tremendous classics you've always wanted to check out. Our nominations will open up in early to mid January, as usual, so you have plenty of time:

    I'm very surprised to see The Maltese Falcon so high. It's not a film I hear a lot of people talking about.

    I wish I could have participated more, but I know Mae did an outstanding job without even having to be here.

    Really? It is fantastic and a contender for the greatest noir ever. Have you seen it?

    I kept praising it all tournament, in fact, it's my favorite of the decade. Try watching it with Dashielle Hammett's novel by your side - the dialog is nearly identical. What a writer. One of my favorite crime novels of all time as well.

    Just a quick and kind reminder that the final leg of our epic tournament begins next month as we start the nomination process for the greatest movies of the 1930s! The thread will go up as usual in early January with the voting kicking off around the start of February. I've shared some links and such previously, so hopefully everyone has some good stuff to nominate! I know given the age of these movies, participation will be lower, but I'm hoping most of those who participated in the 1940s will return.

    Happy New Year, everyone! Peace and Love.

    Yes, I've seen it and it's very good. I'm just saying that when you hear people talk about older films, it's not one I normally hear people mention.

    We started in January 2019. Before Covid, before the insurrection, before war, and personally, before my mom's diagnosis and passing. I'm really proud of our achievement, together we have been able to really come up with such great lists of movies that I think anyone can look back and use as a guide for watching all of the best movies each decade has to offer without missing out much. And we're almost done.

    At one point, I couldn't watch anything but 20s-40s films. TCM owned me.
