I'm pretty much ok with that top 10. Sure, I'd alter the order and make room for the departed and a couple of others ones, but that's a good list. I wouldn't kill the guy coming up with that list, which, when it comes to film lists, is a pretty great achievement.

Yes, but it is an list made mainly by Americans. But then, I assume a list made by Europeans would not be that different.

The only mediocre film in the top 40 imo is the Lord of the Rings trilogy, that is so badly directed and narrated that I can't believe when it features in such lists. Well, and I still don't know why The Dark Knight is so often praised that much.

DJ, are there any other Bond films you consider as masterpieces or near masterpieces?
I wouldn't call any Bond a masterpiece, but I like the Connery Bonds, and also OHMSS.

Outbreak from 1995, about a pandemic virus, pretty good.  Not as good as Contagion 2011 though.

CJ, Too Late was released way too late to be from the 2000"s!

DJ, are there any other Bond films you consider as masterpieces or near masterpieces?

Ok, now I'm through with the first season.

It is entertaining, it is watchable, yes, but it is nothing special. Will the next season improve?

Just like so many (all?) other series there are at least twice as much episodes as necessary. I have no idea why they should need 5 more seasons to tell how Jimmy becomes Saul.

Not only does it get better, but most importantly, the show will find its own voice.

And yes, Mr Power will never admit it but there are too many episodes. But you've got to accept that when you're watching Gilligan stuff: he likes to take his time and spend two full episodes to tell a little story because he just enjoys it. It's a big part of his style. Some plotlines should have been fully removed if you ask me, just less than in Breaking Bad (yet, the show is WAY slower and is so conscious of that it loves to (playfully) use small details like a typo in a legal document as a major plotline that reaches a huge climax a few episodes later).

Yeah, it's pretty good. Hey, how about Stany for Phyllis? Greatest casting ever.

She is the worst thing about the movie.

Der Untergang (2004) I hadn't realized this was 16 years old. The reconstruction is obviously fascinating. I would have done without some episodes and dialogues outside of the bunker but maybe that's because I read much on the subject. 8/10.
