Chris Asked For It, You Got It.

It is true that I sent Chris an email a full week before the "100 Years… 100 Movies—10th Anniversary Edition" AFI special on CBS was on to view it with him. And, while we did not end up watching it together, I believe the synergy among ourselves and the rest of the Film Geek Society was felt across the country. Rather generally, let me, here, nerdily, discuss what I liked about this update and what I did not like about the update.

THE GOOD:
Vertigo got bumped into the Top 10.

THE BAD:
Hmmm, well, everything else. First off, if you are going to add new movies from the last ten years, why only add entries that are also box office hits? (i.e. Toy Story, The Sixth Sense, Titanic, Snores of the Borings.) Second, and leading off that point, how then do you explain that Toy Story is the second greatest Disney-affiliated animated movie of all time (behind Snow White)? Third, leading off the first point again, The Sixth Sense? Really? REALLY? It is a GREATER picture than Fargo? Or Magnolia? Or Being John Malkovich? Or The Thin Red Line? And related to the above points, how does one justify only adding "box office hits" on a list that includes notorious box office flops like The Godfather Part II or The Wizard of Oz? And fifth, how does one explain that the greatest films of all time must be mostly explained by Peter Bogdanovich, Tim Allen, and Academy Award-winning actress Halle Berry who were featured prominently in the special?

What a crock.

    hahaha whoa i assume the porny picture of halle berry is because she was also a commentator on the special, but people might not know that as you don't mention it in your post. but don't change it! it was a nice "shocker": "what a crock" - BAM! BAZOONGAS!

    Whoops -- that was inadvertent. But the shocker remains!

    Is Halle holding a picture of herself in Catwoman? And those panties look kind of diaper-ish, don't you think?

    Still... ERECTION@!

    I was going to add some bashing of the list, but after all these Halle Berry comments, I'd feel like serious comments would betray the spirit of the post.

    Seriously! It's like they've never even seen The Sword in the Stone!

    Also, please post more pics like that last one.

    Come on guys! The picture is obviously a representation of the hypocricy of the Academy Award process and its supposed social awareness, as well as a representation of the silliness of who gets chosen to speak about the greatest films of all time.

    This is the Blogulator, not the Pornulator.

    Well then please represent that hypocrisy some more!
