RLLMUK's Films of the 21st Century Part 1/4 - 2000 to 2004 ALL RESULTS ARE IN

So we're going by IMDB date when it comes to foreign language films that may have come out over here later for example? I only ask @Ork1927 because I would absolutely put down Princess Mononoke if I was going by the 2001 UK release. I'd imagine IMBD release makes most sense.

 

Hi Benny - sorry, not clear - the original release date is what counts (whatever is in brackets next to the film in IMDB) not the date IMDB states the film was released here. So IMDB has Princess Mononoke as (1997)

I went through my films and lists on Letterboxd to remind myself what I might include, and found a few examples where the film's date in brackets didn't match what I expected.

 

Cabin in the Woods (shot in 2009 and shelved) is listed as a 2011 film on IMDb and Letterboxd - but it was on general release in 2012 at the same time as Avengers, Wikipedia describes it as a 2012 film, and on Letterboxd I'd included it in my year ranking list for 2012 not 2011.

 

Ex Machina (2014) was another one with an unexpected mismatch, due to its January 2015 UK release date.

 

I don't think either of those films will make it into my top 3 for those years though!

Hmmmm - those are both messy as it looks like they both had mid/late single film festival showings in December.

 

We may need to make exceptions on them as I suspect they'll both pick up some votes. I wonder what else might be impacted by a December single showing somewhere in the world?

18 sets of votes so far with around 25 films nominated per year (bar 2004 which has 30+). Three years currently have a clear winner with silver and bronze wide open, but the other two years are much more open.

 

One current issues I've noticed is Mulholland Drive which has votes in 2001 and 2002. Going with the IMDB date means it should be voted for in 2001 (while it was released in the UK at the start of 2002, but most other countries  in 2001). @Bazjam and @marlonharewood could you amend sorry.

Done. Edited both my 2001 & 2002. @Benny will be happy to know that Infernal Affairs has had a much deserved promotion.

Reminder that deadline for this is close of play Sunday.

 

@Ravern - you have Magnolia in your top 3 for 2000, but it’s a 1999 film (released in Canada on Christmas Day).

 

Also - can I ask everyone to try and make sure they’ve got 3 films for each year as there are a couple of gaps.

No tough cuts. Bit of a stinker of a year.

Tough cuts: absolutely fuck all. I don't even like these three all that much. What a boring year.

@Ork1927 Done, but there is so little in cinema to like about 2003 that I almost put the Steve Guttenberg classic 'P.S Your Cat is Dead' out of spite.

 

That makes three people who thought that 2003 was a poor year! For me it's one that I'm most struggling to trim down, between: Return of the King, Big Fish, American Splendor, Master and Commander, Kill Bill vol 1, Finding Nemo, X-Men 2, and The Triplets of Belleville (Belleville Rendezvous).

 

I haven't posted my list yet because I'm going to try and rewatch a few films today before the deadline...

I didn't rewatch as many of these as I intended - mostly because I saw that almost all the Rocky films were marked as "limited time left on Amazon Prime" (turns out they're all being taken off there tonight, the 29th), so I got sidetracked watching those films, one per day last week!

 

The ones I did rewatch: Adaptation, Amélie, O Brother Where Art Thou?, American Splendor, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, and The Royal Tenenbaums.

How are you totting up the results @Ork1927, manually?

 

The wonders of Excel after manually inputting them, but I’ve been doing it as I go along.

 

Just some sanity checks on naming and one missing entry and I’ve been doing some writing up in advance.

 

Annoyingly there is one top 3 film in one year that I haven’t seen so need to watch that.

Poll is now closed, but <Homer shriek> @Ravern you’ve not got a Third place entry for 2001 which could be pivotal in deciding third place (or not depending what you go for).

 

Well, if it's the casting vote I guess I have to plump decisively for... Christmas Carol: The Movie.

There were plenty of decent films but to nominate another film with some of the films that will have to be left out entirely in years to come (2007, 2012...) just felt wrong.
