Yeah, I know. And it's to be in the proper AR this time, which is encouraging.

Well aware, kiddo, especially since I'd include a few of them in my own top 10 albums that year. Just figured this was a tread dedicated to top 10 movies. Guess there aren't any hard and fast rules.

It's just Tom's protest at the utter lack of substantial films released in 2007, the worst year for movies ever.

I was just joking at the time. The thread had been bumped and people were re-posting in it like it was . . . well, 2007 again, so I was adding to the absurdity. Now that it has been revived again (and the threads from other years are being re-posted in, too) it just seems inexplicable.

Also, I will still heartily defend the notion that the first Justice album was good.

Well, since we're at it (and in case there will be a consensus list in the future) - alphabetically:

1. Diving Bell and the Butterfly (Julian Schnabel)
2. Don't Touch the Axe (Jacques Rivette)
3. Flight of the Red Balloon (Hou Hsiao-hsien)
4. 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days (Cristian Mungiu)
5. La France (Serge Bozon)
6. Lust, Caution (Ang Lee)
7. Secret Sunshine (Lee Chang-dong)
8. We Own the Night (James Gray)
9. Yella (Christian Petzold)

Bug and The Host would definitely be here but I count them as 2006.

Surprised I didn't do this one, it was an exceptional year for English-language films, there was a ton that just missed the cut. My top eleven, all getting their first theatrical distribution in the U.S. in 2007, with the number one pick actually made in the '70s:

1. Killer of Sheep
2. There Will Be Blood
3. Syndromes and a Century
4. Colossal Youth
5. 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days
6. No Country for Old Men
7. Zodiac
8. I'm Not There
9. Black Book
10. Eastern Promises
11. Offside

As I've said before elsewhere, I consider the decade lists projects to produce much more meaningful results. We did the 2000s a few years ago and will be revisiting them again next year. The dynamic consensus lists thread is really just a stopgap to cover the most recent years while we wait to address them more properly.

Ahhh... did not know those existed. I'll work on that list, then... Thanks!
