  1. > 11) There Will Be Blood

    Lots of brilliance, but I think I agree with your original assessment that it didn’t add up to much. If I had left before the third act I might have declared it a minor classic. But there’s a lot of silliness and inconsequence towards the end. I think, as always, PTA is a much better director than he is a writer.

    > 10) 1408

    Good enough, but … top 10?

    > 9) Once

    I think I saw this too late … after everyone was telling me how awesome it was. I liked a lot of it, but — isn’t this the one where you described the lead as a “volcano of talent” or something? Just too much hyperbole around this good little movie.

    > 8) Rescue Dawn

    Yeah, this one is good.

    > 7) Knocked Up

    Funny, but at the macro level the writing is just too thin for a top ten.

    > 6) No Country For Old Men

    Yummy stuff.

    > 5) 300

    Surely you chest.

    > 4) Charlie Wilson’s War

    Good, old-fashioned Hollywood professionalism. A nice piece of work.

    > 3) 3:10 To Yuma

    Good, but falls apart in the third act. Russell Crowe’s character goes in a very boring direction.

    > 2) Sunshine

    Another one with third act troubles! Liked it until it got all weird at the end.

    > 1) The Assassination of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford

    Also wins the eye-candy award.

  2. Thank you for remembering Rescue Dawn. Was beginning to think I was the only one!

  3. 300 before No Country??? Did I read this list backwards? Is that Jordan talking or UGO talking? Surely, you are just baiting controversy!
