Re-ranked

I’ve now rated 500 movies on Flickchart, so I figured I’d post my updated top 20. New ones are bolded.

  • Casablanca
  • Kill Bill Vol. 1
  • Young Frankenstein
  • The Fifth Element
  • 2001: A Space Odyssey
  • Memento
  • WALL-E
  • Rear Window
  • The Princess Bride
  • I Love You to Death
  • Princess Mononoke
  • Raiders of the Lost Ark
  • Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon
  • Tampopo
  • Return of the Jedi
  • Fantasia
  • A Clockwork Orange
  • The Matrix
  • Mulan

Not that exciting, but at least the embarrassments are off the first page. I spent a fair amount of time trying to think of movies the algorithm wasn’t showing me. That works fine, but it removes the “I hadn’t thought of that in years” effect of the random matchups.

I think I’m about done, because I’m running out of movies I’ve seen. I’m sure I’m missing a couple hundred, but I’m having to click the “Haven’t seen that” buttons more and more.

Naturally this is all for fun… especially since I’m relying in many cases on memories of when I saw a film up to 40 years ago. I mean, I haven’t actually seen A Clockwork Orange since college; maybe it’s not as much of a mindfuck as it seemed then. I suspect that TRON is way less cool than it seemed in 1982. I also wonder if my memory that Roger Moore Bond films were cheesily entertaining would hold up. I mean, he’s no Sean Connery, but it would be a good night at the movies.
