    If that's a real take, it means you aren't trying hard enough to find great films. There are plenty out there.

    That's including 2020, a year where the industry essentially shut down. I'm not going to repost my list, but it was a fairly strong year for film.

    Also, this is hardly an amazing grouping. Escape is just okay and The Andromeda Strain is not exactly amazing cinema either. I'm not sure how it's gotten this far to be honest.

    Fair enough. Actually canít tell you the last time Iíve been to a theater or seen a recent movie. Just see a lot of bad ones advertised, maybe more than good ones.

    Yeah, that's the problem with Hollywood. You're really only going to be fed fast food from them. For a nice restaurant and a nice meal, you are going to have to be a little more creative.

    Funny, I see The Andromeda Strain as quite an excellent film. It owes much to Kubrick's 2001 Space Odyssey. I love it.
