    25 years? I can’t even remember the ones from last year.

    Moon Moon Land won, or whatever it was called.

    Get Out as the film that hit the zeitgeist sweet spot for 2017 America.

    Call Me By Your Name as the most lauded and for its inevitable BP snub; its reputation will only grow.

    Dunkirk and Phantom Thread, though only so much as they are parts of their directors’ larger bodies of work and for DDL’s final role (if he sticks to retirement).

    Get Out because of obvious reasons and CMBYN because it touches upon the growing trend of acceptance towards a more fluid exploration of sexuality.

    Call Me By Your Name- it will only be remembered for it being a trailblazer for gay romance films

    Darkest Hour- Will be forgotten in 6 months

    Dunkirk- will be remembered as Nolan’s Oscar baby

    Get Out, Lady Bird, and The Shape of Water-  will all  be considered Classics

    Phantom Thread- will be forgotten over a period of time unless this really is DDL last film

    The Post- People will remember this as one Spielberg dud’s even though it really isn’t.

    Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri-

    Will be remembered for a long period of time but maybe not by 25 years.

    Get Out- will be remembered as one of the smartest horror movies of all time, and great social commentary

    Dunkirk- will be considered one of the greatest war movies of all time

    Call Me By Your Name- Remembered as a beautiful, nostalgic summer romance movie, maybe even the quintessential one, and also as a realistic coming of age movie

    Lady Bird- remembered as one of the funniest, most touching, most accurate coming of age movies ever

    I think the other five will be known as good movies, but probably not anything worth raving about.

    1. Get Out
    2. Three Billboards
    3. The Shape of Water
    Call me by your name is very forgettable IMO. And even I, Tonya will be remembered more than some of the movies nominated for best picture.

    Lady Bird and Get Out were tremendous first outings from their creators which might stand depending where both go from here. The Shape of Water wasn’t quite the masterpiece that Pan’s Labyrinth was, but it’s still of Guillermo’s best films so it’ll be remembered for that.

    I haven’t seen Phantom Thread yet, but the rest of these movies are basically this year’s versions of Best Picture fill-ins.

    Call Me by Your Name = Moonlight
    Dunkirk = Hacksaw Ridge (minus the clear protagonist)
    The Post = Hidden Figures
    Three Billboards = Manchester by the Sea
    Darkest Hour = Lincoln (since it doesn’t fit with any from last year)

    Get Out will clearly be most remembered (and most influential?) of this year’s films.

    Call Me By Your Name will be remembered as a landmark gay film.

    Lady Bird and The Shape of Water should be remembered fondly.

    Three Billboards is interesting in that it could be remembered very positively or very poorly, but there’s little chance of it being forgotten. I predict that it’ll continue attracting praise for its performances, but perhaps not for much else.

    Dunkirk will hardly be forgotten, but I have a feeling that critics, the populace, and even Nolan’s fanboys will rank most of his other work ahead of it.

    Phantom Thread will be beloved by film afficiandos.

    I see Darkest Hour going the route of The Iron Lady. BUT it and The Post will be cited as early examples of films responding to the political climate of the times.

    I’m a history nerd and I find The Post, Darkest Hour and Dunkirk quite boring and forgettable. Reading a history book about those events is far more interesting and exciting for me. I haven’t seen Phantom Thread but I doubt people will remember about it. Get Out is one of the few horror movies acknowledged by the Academy. For a horror film to walk away with multiple major nominations for Best Screenplay, Best Actor, Best Director and Best Picture is incredible and hard to forget.

    Lady Bird directed by a woman is very relevant in the MeToo context, but it will soon fade away once other good coming of age stories make their way to the big screen. Much of CMBYN charm comes from its apparent and idyllic simplicity. But this is deceptive and the movie has a subversive way of sneaking up on you and make you question a lot of things. Hard to forget.

    The Shape of Water is a strange film but so intense, vulnerable and intricate. I think people will still want to see it in 25 years. Three Billboards… some people will watch it for the amazing performances. It would be fun to have this discussion again in 25 years and to see who was right and who was wrong.
