    @smurty11 Although The Hurt Locker’s win was controversial at the same time, I think that it is now seen as the right choice.

    In a year with Up, Inglorious Basterds, District 9, and Precious, i don’t think so. All of them were more influential and more memorable than The Hurt Locker. The Best Picture win went along with the ride of Kathryn Bigelow’s win.

    So you all forgot about Unforgiven, Howards End, Scent of a Woman, A Few Good Men and The Crying Game?

    Just another repetitive thread to talk shit about the same films and pretend Get Out is some sort of classic.

    Get Out is a classic. It’ll inspire plenty of horror-comedies about marginalized communities and the indifference society has towards them.

    I think Darkest Hour

    I barely remember Darkest Hour, and I saw it roughly 25 days ago.

    “YOU CANNOT NEGHSTJATE WITH A TIGEBR WHEBRN YRORU EHAHDB SIDNEKWLXNDAL” is I think a direct transcription.

    I’ve seen all of them, and my choices are: TSOW, CMBYN, and Get Out.

    Again everyone is entitled to their opinion 😉

    Christopher Nolan has a strong and popular body of work, so DUNKIRK will still be around. Also, WW2 movies are still popular now, no reason they won’t be in 30 years. THE POST less so, but Spielberg, Nixon, journalism, and government abuse of power will always be of interest.
    GET OUT will age well, because horror movies age well. Genre films from 30 years ago are still popular.
    DARKEST HOUR is another good WW2 movie, so it will stay.

    Of course all I’m really doing is justifying the nominees I like.

    I really think this was a solid year for film and although there is no Titanic in this group several of these films will wear well. TB, TSOW, LADY BIRD, AND CMBYN are the four best. Dunkirk was solid but I don’t think compares to other great war movies of the past.

    I’ll separate them into 3 tiers:

    Tier 1 (most remembered)
    Call Me by Your Name – I honestly find it quite ovarrated but the source material (gay romance) alone is sufficient to give it a position à la Maurice in cinema history.

    Get Out – Probably the most talked-about film of the year. The commercial performance plus the current American (or should I say international, or at least Western) political climate is enough to guarantee it a classic status.

    Dunkirk – It’s Nolan. His stans will make sure it’s remembered in 25 years.

    Tier 2 (will do well enough)
    The Shape of Water – Del Toro is one of the most respected artistic directors in the industry. Like the film or not, his collective body of work will support its legacy.

    Phantom Thread – Same as TSOW except that this time it’s PTA. Plus, it’s DDL’s last film.

    Three Billboards – I see this film as a more seen In Bruges. In Bruges has developed quite a fanbase over the last 9 years, I’m guessing Three Billboards will do just as well, if not better.

    Tier 3 (won’t be remembered much)
    Lady Bird – There are simply too many coming-of-age films each year for this to be remembered in 25 years. The only thing it’s got going for is having a nominated female director, who is only the fifth one in history.

    The Post – It was made for the Oscars. Spielberg is well-respected but he’s directed like a billion films in his long ass career, a lot of them have already been/will be forgotten.

    Darkest Hour – It was made for the Oscars. And Oldman’s thirst.

    Personally, I think it will be Get Out, The Shape of Water, Call Me By Your Name and possibly Three Billboards. I hope Dunkirk will be forgotten since it’s nowhere as good as any WWII classic.

    Not to say that this shows a film’s legacy, but 3B is at #111 and CMBYN is at #176 at iMDb Top 250 All Time. Dunkirk is holding on at #223.

    This site is so basic it hurts lol. Anyway, highbrow tastes write film history; everyone else watches new releases. So Phantom Thread and Call Me By Your Name will be classics. Dunkirk’s near wordless structure will age very well with cinephiles, and Get Out will likely be regarded as historically important. Lady Bird will likely be remembered, albeit perhaps in a quieter way. I don’t see any of the others being remembered.
