Sweet, Jeff has as many as I do, now I don't feel as bad

RS also has their Top 10 movies in the latest issue (probably on their website too)

1. Mystic River
2. ROTK
3. Lost in Translation
4. Master and Commander
5. Cold Mountain
6. American Splendor
7. Big Fish
8. A Mighty Wind
9. Kill Bill: Vol. 1
10. Angels in America

Sadly, I've only seen A Mighty Wind and want to see almost all of these

Incredible. 4 of those movies aren't even out yet. I pity anyone who reads/subscribes to this ****.  

So. . .  what in the world does "aren't even out yet" have to do with anything?  Because a movie hasn't gone into wide release yet--that means that a writer who has already seen it in a press screening shouldn't put it on his list?

I'm assuming you're talking about these four movies:

-Return of the King
-Cold Mountain
-Big Fish
-Angels in America

Now, ROTK, of course, comes out in two days, and I'm assuming that it's already had plenty of press screenings in New York and Los Angeles.  

Cold Mountain is being released on Christmas.  Again, I'll assume it's already been screened for the press.

Big Fish is already playing in N.Y. and L.A., goes into limited release on Christmas, and releases wide on January 9th.  I know that it's already had some pre-release screenings, because Kneel Before Zod saw it in Dallas last month, and posted about it at R-------m afterward.

Angels in America, I don't know anything about at all, but after looking at IMDB, it looks like it was an HBO mini-series that ran in two parts--the first being on December 7th, the other being tonight (14th).

(There's also another film that I've been hearing a lot about, called In America, which looks like it went into limited release in the U.S. on November 26th.  But I'm guessing that the list was referring to the previous film, AIA.

Now, I'll agree with you that Rolling Stone has turned into a sh!t publication--but there's absolutely nothing wrong with including movies that haven't gone into wide release yet on a "best of the year" list.  Of course, if the writer hasn't seen those films, and included them in his list anyway, for whatever reason, then there's a problem.  But I doubt that's the case here.

(By the way--I'm going to see a sneak preview of House of Sand and Fog on Tuesday night, but it doesn't go into wide release until December 26th.  Does that mean that I'm not entitled to say anything about it until then?)

I think some people may be confusing Christmas "specials" and Christmas "movies" here.

Anyway. . .  My favorite, and the correct answer:

"A Charlie Brown Christmas"



Quote
"And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.

And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.

And the angel said unto them,

'Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.

For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.

And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.'

And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,

Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men."

My next-favorite Christmas television special is probably the feature-film National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation, released theatrically in 1989.

I just want to say--and this might not be appropriate here, I don't know--that Jillian Barberie is nothing more than a dirty whore.

She's been mentioned before in this thread by someone, don't remember who.  

Is it just me?  Does she have some redeeming qualities?

Your preference?

Nice on-topic reply, dickwad.  

How about a new "movies" thread?

Driving music:


Underrated--if only because Achtung, Baby! was so damn good.

I can't ever find the words to describe this album.  I like it.

I'm a little disappointed that they left Liz Phair off the list...
I guess I just don't get the kids today.

Yeah, I noticed the exclusion of both the Liz Phair and Zwan albums--both of which came out this year, and that I at least liked a little bit.

However, at best, they were average in quality compared to what those two artists (Phair and Billy Corgan) have done in the past, so that's probably why they weren't on there.

I wonder if WhiteChocolateSpaceEgg (1988) and Machina (2000) made their best-of lists for their respective years. . .

I take this list with about a boatload of salt. Especially when they list one hit wonders like "Junior Senior", as well as Metallica's "St. Anger" which has only sold about 1.5 million copies in the U.S.

I think it's a shame that they left out Audioslave, in additon to Hatebreed's newest album, which is being heralded as the one of, if not the greatest hardcore albums of all time. Not to mention it debuted No. 30 on Billboards Top 200, and made #1 on their hard charts.

I'd love to visit the colleges and coffee shops they poll kids at for these ridiculous lists.

I don't really want to comment on this list because I've only heard a handful of these albums, so I won't.

'Course, as it always needs to be said with these types of things, high sales don't necessarily equal good, and low sales don't necessarily equal bad.

And Audioslave came out in 2002--that probably explains why it's not on this "best of 2003" list.
