    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.

    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
    .
    #3-Chicago
    #4-LOTR
    #5-The Departed
    .
    (Ugh…I have trouble even ranking any of these films something as high as #6)
    #6-Million Dollar Baby
    #7-A Beautiful Mind
    #8-Gladiator
    #9-Slumdog Millionaire
    #10-Crash

    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.

    No Country for Old Men. It’s so sick that the Academy chose that one for Best Picture.

    I have not seen <i>No Country  for Old Men </i>yet but I’ll rank the rest:

    1) Chicago
    2) Lord of the Rings : Return of the King
    3) The Departed
    4) Slumdog Millionaire
    5) The Hurt Locker

    <i>A Beautiful Mind</i>, CrashGladiator and Million Dollar Baby should not be even in this list.

    FYC Emmys: "The Crown" in all categories, "I May Destroy You" in all categories, "It's a Sin" in all categories, "Small Axe" in all categories, Billie Piper ("I Hate Suzie"), Yvonne Strahovski ("Stateless") and Ruth Wilson ("His Dark Materials")

    Million Dollar Baby should have never won Picture and Directing.

    The Aviator, Eternal Sunshine, and Sideways were all way more deserving winners.

    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.
