    It's pleasing seeing Barry Lyndon in third place so far. As I have mentioned many times, I consider it to the the greatest movie ever made, not just of this decade, but of all time. I hope it does well, but I understand it's not everyone's cup of tea.

    I cannot vote for any of these. They are all cannon fodder.
