02. Zama, by Lucretia Martel (2017) 8/10 TSPDT 21stCENT #61

Quite an interesting setting, and a very beautiful cinematography. The colonial part is quite enthralling, and the part in the wilderness dreamlike. My favorite Martel to date.

By-the-numbers as far as fish-out-water comedies go; even the funnier scenes (confronting a store Santa and scaring some kids) have predictable outcomes. James Caan is shortchanged and heavily underwritten as Will Ferrell's father who comes across as more of a workaholic than a heartless miser - though Caan like Farrell gives his best, especially reacting to Ferrell's "someone special" gift. Some great animated parts in the mix too.

This was pretty decent, I guess, but when you realise that this is in the TOP HALF of the 21st Century List?? :blink:

OP updated.

Let's take a look again how the individual lists fare. The TSPDT 1001-2000 list (94) is now head to head with its big brother (96), while the 21st Century list (71) remains strong and in close distance.

Rewatch because the wife hadn't seen it in 15+ years. Still good. Really fun looking at the little details in the film.

5. The Assassin (2015, Taiwan) 21st #103
Gorgeous but slow.

6. Eighth Grade (2018) 21st #580
So, I don't like coming of age films, generally speaking. I find them forced and awkward and I never really connect with the characters. But I paused this one 23 minutes in and made my wife come out and watch it with me. It so perfectly captured the cringeiness of that age and I related to it a TON. So good.

The 21st century list has a pretty clear bias towards films released in the early years of the century - stats on the TSPDT site indicate that 2000-2009 have 585 films on the list, with 2010-2019 at just 415. A significant number of 2000-2009 films have an entrenched foothold on the list that more recent things haven't been able to match (316 films are from 2000-2004, including the three highest years: 2004, 2002, 2000). Also, the eight lowest years in terms of number of films are 2012-2019. Obviously, not all years represent equal strength and we could all debate endlessly about the relative merits of specific films and years, but these topline numbers seem pretty egregious. Elf looks to be a prime beneficiary of this trend.

And this is after an adjustment, largely powered by end of decade lists, that bumped the more recent decade from 356 to 415. End of 2019 lists also had some influence, with 2018-2019 registering a net gain of 32. There was also significant movement within the list, largely in favour of 2010-2019 films, but this clearly hasn't fully rebalanced the list. It will be interesting to see if there are additional end of decade lists that show up in the 2020 list to improve the balance.

This British documentary depicts the rise and tragic death of singer Amy Winehouse. We certainly get a very vivid insight to Amy the conflicted, tortured artist, with clips of stand-up comedians belittling her looks and the paparazzi chasing her, which may have well factored into her chronic addictions. This sometimes feels more like slideshow tho set to good music than a probing documentary with many of the interviewees repeating the same things.

This was pretty decent, I guess, but when you realise that this is in the TOP HALF of the 21st Century List?? :blink:
Agreed. I saw it for last month's comedy challenge (rated it 5/10, pretty forgettable) and share your sentiments. Wonder which individual lists push it so high on the 21 Century list. :think:
The 21st century list has a pretty clear bias towards films released in the early years of the century - stats on the TSPDT site indicate that 2000-2009 have 585 films on the list, with 2010-2019 at just 415. A significant number of 2000-2009 films have an entrenched foothold on the list that more recent things haven't been able to match (316 films are from 2000-2004, including the three highest years: 2004, 2002, 2000). Also, the eight lowest years in terms of number of films are 2012-2019. Obviously, not all years represent equal strength and we could all debate endlessly about the relative merits of specific films and years, but these topline numbers seem pretty egregious. Elf looks to be a prime beneficiary of this trend.

And this is after an adjustment, largely powered by end of decade lists, that bumped the more recent decade from 356 to 415. End of 2019 lists also had some influence, with 2018-2019 registering a net gain of 32. There was also significant movement within the list, largely in favour of 2010-2019 films, but this clearly hasn't fully rebalanced the list. It will be interesting to see if there are additional end of decade lists that show up in the 2020 list to improve the balance.
Yeah I vaguely remember the introduction post to this year's update, and I mostly agree with current balance between the two decades as time plays a big role imo. It's just that why Elf (2003)? :D Which lists have such an impact on its rating, or are there relatively many lists that gave it a decent push?
Also, I think the post mentioned that not all of the decades lists made into the update, so there should movement in next year's update.

OP updated.

Once again we take a look at the decade breakdown. It's still a close race between the 60s and 80s, with the former profiting from this month's challenge and the 80s from several mini-series. But the 2010s also gained traction and could be a dark horse in this race.

Image

Without counting every single episode as an entry, we see the 80s fall to fourth place behind the 2000s, while the rest stays almost completely the same.
