Go, vote and comment.March 6, 2021 at 12:48 pm #1204088380
To me, No Country for Old Men is just on a higher level of craft that it’s kind of weird it became the frontrunner to begin with. But I think in 2007, idk, it was the end of the Bush administration and we were all in a mood, lol. And if it wasn’t that, it’d have been TWBB.March 6, 2021 at 1:55 pm #1204088467
I have grown to appreciate NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN more in recent years…but I probably would’ve given my vote to THE WILL BE BLOOD.
I still think NO COUNTRY is the best out of this lineup with THE HURT LOCKER close behind but wow…what a sorry lineup of films this is.
#1-No Country for Old Men
#2-The Hurt Locker
(Ugh…I have trouble even ranking any of these films something as high as #6)
#6-Million Dollar Baby
#7-A Beautiful Mind

Million Dollar Baby
Chicago was fun back in the day but I don’t know if I could sit through it again. I think I would find it kinda silly nowadays.
A Beautiful Mind was a great film but the subject matter made it too disturbing to watch it again.

No Country For Old Men. There’s not even room for discussion.March 6, 2021 at 2:23 pm #1204088498
No Country for Old Men. It’s so sick that the Academy chose that one for Best Picture.

No Country and it’s not even closeMarch 6, 2021 at 2:29 pm #1204088509
Return of the King for the best movie trilogy of all time.March 6, 2021 at 2:40 pm #1204088537
I have not seen <i>No Country for Old Men </i>yet but I’ll rank the rest:
2) Lord of the Rings : Return of the King
3) The Departed
4) Slumdog Millionaire
5) The Hurt Locker
<i>A Beautiful Mind</i>, Crash, Gladiator and Million Dollar Baby should not be even in this list.

Million Dollar Baby should have never won Picture and Directing.
The Aviator, Eternal Sunshine, and Sideways were all way more deserving winners.March 7, 2021 at 6:39 am #1204089618
Not someone voting for Crash..March 7, 2021 at 9:53 am #1204089978
No Country for Old Men, no question. And that was the best year of cinema, absolute quality. There were a dozen movies that year were better than any of these BP winners.
Bill Hader and Barry in everything (2 babka)
The Great - Elle Fanning, Nicholas Hoult and comedy writing and directing
Severance in drama series, writing, Adam Scott for best actor, Ben Stiller for drama directing, and the whole cast in supporting.Not now
