Upborn with indefatigable wings,
Over the vast abrupt, ere he arrive
The happy Ile?

I've seen it twice and both times I didn't see what's so amazing about it. Rated it 6/10 though so no dislike or something like that.
I'm afraid to ask for your rating of American Beauty and Schindler's List

Fun idea. I may watch one or two of the FF winners that I have left this month so hopefully will remember to come back and vote later. Looks like my fave BP list will be fairly different from a lot of the others here; and it's pretty easy for me to come up with 10 (maybe 12) winners that I outright dislike.

But at the bottom, the immanent philosopher sees in the entire universe only the deepest longing for absolute annihilation, and it is as if he clearly hears the call that permeates all spheres of heaven: Redemption! Redemption! Death to our life! and the comforting answer: you will all find annihilation and be redeemed!

I'm not going to bother with trying to come up with 10 least favorite foreign films.. There's a couple I'm not too crazy about, but, I don't feel all that strongly against any of them. Likewise with the Best Picture winners, there's only one I really don't like.

:down:
And The Deer Hunter (your #1 in worst) was pretty close to making it in my Best list too :lol:
I've seen it twice and both times I didn't see what's so amazing about it. Rated it 6/10 though so no dislike or something like that.
I'm afraid to ask for your rating of American Beauty and Schindler's List
2/10 for both... I certainly recognize the craft in both - especially the cinematography, but American Beauty is a film that oozes smugness and a feeling of superiority over its characters... until it asks of you to care, suddenly. As for Schindler's List... well that's a more complex discussion, but the bottom line is that it's a commercial film about the Holocaust, and maybe there's a way to make that work without it feeling incredibly crass, but Spielberg certainly isn't the director for it. The little girl in red is a perfect example of why I find the film repulsive: the Holocaust doesn't need additional stakes, it doesn't need you to heighten the drama... if you need a little girl to be highlighted in red for the audience to care, maybe your film has a problem.

I don't know if you actually wanted an explanation, but there you go. :ermm:

Well, it's a good thing we're all different. There is a surprising amount of movies that show up in both lists.

So clearly the winners can be polarizing as well, not only certain nominees. But 3 weeks is a long time. We'll see if these actually manage to get in the top half of both lists down the line.

Worst Best Foreign Language Picture Winners
1. The Counterfeiters
2. The Shop On Main Street
3. Ladri di biciclette (This is of course no bad movie, but I think it‘s somewhat overrated, a bit cliché and a bit simple. And I‘ve seen others voting in this category for exceptional works like Son Of Saul, Amour or Orfeu Negro, so I think I can justifiably include this one here. I haven‘t seen too much Foreign Winners, so this movie is simultaneously near the top the 10.)

Do we have to rank 1-10? Can we just put our ten choices in an unranked group?

But then you'll get just 5,5 points on all of them since the points bonus for spot 1 and 2 are for stuff that are actually ranked on those places.

5.5 for each is fine with me. But it's your poll. I'm happy with whatever you decide.
