    How is Shape of Water so high in these lists???

    Especially since it aged pretty badly after 3 years in comparison with the incredible films of the same year (Dunkirk, Get Out, Call Me By Your Name, Phantom Thread, Lady Bird, Three Billboards, I, Tonya, etc..).

    Same thing for Birdman.

    There were films like Boyhood, The Grand Budapest Hotel, Whiplash, Interstellar, Nightcrawler, Inherent Vice, Gone Girl, etc..

    They all aged better.

    I’ll do a poll later about this.

    01. Parasite
    02. The Shape Of Water
    03. Birdman
    04. 12 Years a Slave
    05. Spotlight
    06. Argo
    07. The King’s Speech
    08. Moonlight
    09. The Artist
    10. Green Book

    2 & 3 can easily switch. 4 through 7 can all move around as well. I liked “Moonlight” but overall the pacing drags the ranking down. “The Arist” looks fabulous, but the project is gimmicky and got old quick. “Green Book” has some merits including it’s 2 leading men, but I hate the screenplay and the direction gives no inspiration whatsoever.

    Well, I’m sure you realize this already but different films elicit different responses from different people.

    Going over the films you listed:

    I Loved “The Shape of Water”, “Birdman”, “Dunkirk”, “Get Out”, “I, Tonya”, “The Grand Budapest Hotel” & “Nightcrawler”.

    I liked “Call Me By Your Name”, “Lady Bird”, “Interstellar”, “Inherent Vice”, “Whiplash” & “Gone Girl”.

    “Phantom Thread” had merits but made me sleepy all the same.

    “Boyhood” was gimmicky & slow despite nice work from some of the actors.

    I did not care for “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” much at all, which made me sad because I generally adore McDormand, Harrelson & Rockwell.

    Only three of the winners here were truly worthy in my eyes.

    1. PARASITE
    2. MOONLIGHT
    3. 12 YEARS A SLAVE (though I sort of preferred HER)
    4. THE SHAPE OF WATER (Three Billboards)
    5. BIRDMAN (The Grand Budapest Hotel)
    6. ARGO (Zero Dark Thirty)
    7. SPOTLIGHT (The Big Short or Mad Max)
    8. THE KING’S SPEECH (The Social Network)
    9. THE ARTIST (The Tree of Life)
    10. GREEN BOOK (The Favourite)

    I think the general consensus, not necessarily in this website, is that the indisputable top 3 picks are :

    1. Parasite

    2. Moonlight

    3. 12 Years A Slave

    The rest elicits very mixed responses.

    I am super curious as to which one is actually the real The Artist.

    Also, would it be obnoxious if I copied the idea all of these “Rank the winners” threads and made a “Rank the nominees” thread? I really enjoyed these, but if other people would rather there not be a flood of “Rank” threads I can wait until these ones die down a little.
