The 25 Best Films of the 21st Century (so far)

I've only seen nine of them.  I guess I lose my cinephile credentials.

I concur. I've seen 19 out of 25 on that list, and the only one that would make my own top 25 list for sure is Boyhood.

As a parent, I see a lot more animated films than I did when I was childless. My Life as a Zucchini was one of the best.

Yeah, do not miss this one on the big screen if you are a fan of music & film.
Although it probably won't end up on a Top-50-Of-All-Time sorta thing, it is brilliant in many ways, esp the cool premise. 
Great cast, too.

I was a little disappointed with Baby Driver.  The soundtrack and the way they weave music into the story was great.  The car chases were good but the story never really goes anywhere.  I didn't find either Jon Hamm or Kevin Spacey to be convincing villains.  It's probably worth a trip to the theater, but as noted above, it won't make any "best of' lists.

You've been here long enough to know this: any visual media that features music prominently will be rated two letter grades higher than it actually deserves by this board. We had a weekly discussion of Vinyl, for God's sake.

I just watched "Get Out" and it was complete garbage.  I can only see people liking this due to politics...horrible.
