Have y'all been here recently? Every year I find the work that Engin does soooo amazing on this site. Labor intensive but such a fascinating insight into consensus and also a vital, I think, snapshot of the vast array of professionals, semi professionals, and full time hobbyists or online celebrities devoting themselves to film criticism, evaluation, obsession, etc... It's also fascinating to compare your favorites to the consensus and see just how maverick you are. Or, if you prefer, how critically perceptive. Of course it's all exceptionally boring if you're not a list junkie. But if you're still reading, you are.
FWIW, the year in which my list coincided most closely to general consensus was in 2001, where 6 of my top 10 appeared and the other four were films I at least mildly enjoyed (Moulin Rouge!, The Fellowship of the Ring, In the Mood for Love, Mulholland Dr, The Royal Tenenbaums, In the Bedroom were the mutual love-fests) --it's probably not so coincidentally my favorite film year of the decade. So much killer stuff... I still long for a year as fine as that one. The year in which my list was in most disagreement was in 2003, where I matched up with only three films (Lost in Translation, Return of the King, and Kill Bill Vol. 1) and actively hated one celebrated film (21 Grams). 2003 is probably not so coincidentally my least favorite film year of the decade.
