    I own Almost Famous, so if I watch it tonight (and I probably won’t) it won’t be at 1 AM.

    Genre lists are annoying, because what is a horror movie and what is a thriller? What’s a comedy and what’s a romance? But the lists thus far are OK…except for ranking Brief Encounter above Casablanca. Madness. And the crime list is weird-Goodfellas, but no Godfather?

    My list of genres: Drama, Comedy, Action-Adventure, Mystery, Suspense, Crime (Gangster is a subcategory), Fantasy, War, Kids, Non-Traditional Musical (eg Spinal Tap), Traditional Musical, Sci-Fi, Horror, Western, Animation.

  • Where is The Godfather on the crime list? and since when is Chinatown and Vertigo considered to crime films. Sideways should have been on the comedy list.

    The Lists:
    “Borat” second greatest comedy of all time? Really? I would definitely have “Juno” in my top ten
    The romance list had was good, except for some of the rankings. Also, “Moulin Rouge”, “City Lights”, “Titanic”

    I think “How Do You Know” looks great and I can’t wait to see it, but I don’t think it has much chance at an Oscar nomination for anything.

    ANd that trailer really makes “The Fighter” look like a real Oscar contender! I CANNOT wait for that movie.
