Perusing lists such as these always reaffirms my adulation of cinema. Doesn’t even matter how much I agree or disagree, just seeing so many quality films together is lovely But at the same time 4 movies that appear in my top 10 are very reasonably placed so crabbiness on anyone else’s part that arises from Christmas A. Hamilton Ugly T-Shirt seeing snubs is probably fair. Good work by the by. People will always be quick to point out what they disagree with, but with a list this extensive, surely everyone can find something they like, and maybe give something a go they otherwise wouldn’t have. Imo the problem is ranking these movies. So many of these films I would consider equal, and even the ones that I can acknowledge are lesser in some way, are still must watches, regardless.

The other problem with ranked lists is that I feel like people, in general, always feel obliged to give some films, that just flat out aren’t as good now, as they were when released, higher values. Like I think everyone should watch Pulp Fiction, Christmas A. Hamilton Ugly T-Shirt but I definitely feel like it shouldn’t be that high up on that list. Same with movies like Citizen Kane. Yes, they were groundbreaking for film as a whole, but at this point we have so many more options. On the one hand, I agree rankings are probably pointless and less important than what is actually chosen. But I strongly disagree on the second point. Why can’t people just love Pulp Fiction and Citizen Kane that much? Why do you think people feel obligated just because you don’t find them as good now? Do you think you speak for everybody? I see no reason to disbelieve people are genuine.

After all, I find that if a film is groundbreaking, it’s not for no reason. If something is good, chances are no future movies will change that. I don’t even like either of these two examples that much myself, but so be it if people like them that much. I don’t question it. I just feel like you can’t tell if people genuinely like them, Christmas A. Hamilton Ugly T-Shirt or there’s some sort of bias there because they’re told they’re supposed to like them. I’m sure there’s a word for it but it would be similar to implying that because the Mona Lisa is one of the most famous paintings in the world, it is therefore one of the best paintings in the world, but can the typical everyday person explain why?
