I'm surprised to see Inherent Vice so high on this list.  That movie is beyond confounding to me.  I was so goddamn excited and I was thoroughly let down.  I know what PTA is going for and I didn't go in expecting something to the caliber of TWBB but, goddamn.  Pynchon is dense enough.

If I were to add a confoundingly dumb film to the list, Sharknado would be nowhere near it.  Sweet Prudence and the Erotic Adventure of Bigfoot, however, holds a special place in my heart.


In fact, Ghost Shark is ten times the movie Sharknado is.

nice to see wet hot american summer, i saw the devil and serious man.

Also I thought I was the only one who saw Antichrist. a little excessive with the genital mutilation and the deer fetus scene but still a viscerally stunning and raw flick. I like to be beat over the head from times to times with something so stark and savage.

We need to talk to Kevin is amazing and devastating as fuck too. very pleased to see that noted.

Zodiac was sweet but my favorite david fincher is seven and i was gonna put that in a list similiar to yours but it's a 90's flick.

I'm not sure if I can do 50 so here's 40

1Irreversible

It amazes me that people can make lists like these. I can't make any coherent order out of this many items and I consume too much to know where to begin. Most of my favorite movies were made before 1930 so I guess it doesn't matter anyway.

I've made a list of my favorite movies of all time before as well.

I am positive I will always end up leaving shit out, but how I tackled this list was browsing through my ratings on Letterboxd.com since I started using it, looking at previous lists I've made, and looking at the DVDs I own as well as other similar lists for things I may have forgotten.

I actually had like 75 movies that I had to narrow down to 50 and had to omit a few things I would've liked to keep, like Spirited Away.

But also I have a real dumb long memory span of things nobody else cares about, like my favorite movies.

Paris, Texas will always be the best movie.

Also I just realized, Brett you think Fantastic Mr Fox is better than The Royal Tenenbaums? I haven't seen FMF in years. Maybe it's time for a rewatch.

Fox was a perfect style for Wes Anderson.  Tenenbaums gets too cutesy for me and it annoys me at times. Rushmore is my favorite but is pre-2000 so (obviously) wasn't listed.

Gotcha! It's been on my rewatch list but I've been trying to see stuff I've never seen before recently.

I don't necessarily hate Wes Anderson movies. In fact, I think they're really pretty movies to look at. But all my friends adore them and most of the time, I sit there and wonder if there's something I'm missing, and if so, what? Grand Budapest Hotel was the one I have enjoyed the most, I believe.

Grand Budapest was definitely more fun for me than any others I've seen.

he was saying, "Tennenbaums too cute, sir? you've gone mad!" long before indie films started being particular to cute or quirky. just sayin'

one of my top fav movies of all time, i have watched it too many times to count, though not recently, i tend to get the same amount of pleasure/pain everytime i do see it, whether six months or six years since the last time i saw it.

I have no idea what this is even supposed to mean. Who gives a shit if it was annoying before Little Miss Sunshine was annoying? It's still annoying.

Wes Anderson's whimsy is gag-inducing at times and Tenenbaums most definitely suffers from it. There's enough to offset it, including my favorite line of any of his films (Custard) but god, is some of it irritating.

Thankfully he mostly focused on throwing all the worst aspects of his filmmaking into Darjeeling so I can pretend that doesn't exist and am able to enjoy most everything else.

But Moonrise Kingdom suffers from the same problems as Tenenbaums. It's great for the first half, then completely falls apart by the end. Fantastic Mr. Fox keeps a steady pace throughout it and the animation style actually works really well for him. Also has some of my favorite song choices of his. Rushmore is just fucking funny. Grand Budapest has some good moments but suffers from Tenenbaums/Moonrise Kingdom syndrome and feels more like a Wes Anderson caricature.

Baumbach is the better of the two directors anyway.
