Check Out Their Cuts (2 Lists) — 4 years ago

Check out 2 lists I just made of movies that didn’t make this final list.

The Corliss Cuts: http://www.listsofbests.com/list/66373

The Schickel Cuts: http://www.listsofbests.com/list/66374

Untitled — 4 years ago

Just because something is old doesn’t make it good. Awful, except for finding nemo there’s a truly classic film!

I have to ask... — 6 years ago

Is “The Legend of Drunken Master” REALLYTIMEMAGAZINE’s #31 film of ALLTIME?

Slight correction — 7 years ago

Number 63 is usually / alternatively spelt Nayakan with a k not a g.



due to the difference in pronunciation between Hindi and Tamil; film is also sometimes called by its fuller title Velu Nayakan.

A great film by all accounts, but there are plenty of other greater Indian films that deserved to be on this list ahead of it. Maybe I should make a list?


where the FUCK is... — 7 years ago

…Apocalypse Now?

aguirre — 7 years ago

Added aguirre, the Wrath of God, to complete the list
