I created that account by two purposes; making my ultimate top 20 edition (if it's really possible ;p); and the 2016 movie counting (the ones I've watched).

Oh, yeah I remember, sure has been a while. I'm doing pretty good thx.

I see we both made new accounts, ha. I made this one because the old one I couldn't delete my rankings for some reason, and the ordering of everything was all wrong. My film preferences have changed a lot since then. Actually, looking at my flickchart on this account, my rankings are also pretty shit and inaccurate. I haven't been on here in a while. How's it been with you? Have your film preferences changed much also?

My favourite to come out this year so far is probably Logan. Favourite movie I've watched this year is probably "It's Such a Beautiful Day". It's a very abstract sort of film though so I wouldn't recommend that it's for everyone.

Some good films I first watched recently are "The Asphalt Jungle" and "Bride of Frankenstein". These old type of "classics" are often the films I enjoy watching most these days. Most mainstream movies are "ehhhhhhh" for me nowadays though. I despised nearly every minute of Rogue One and Suicide Squad.

I noticed you have a lot of older films highly ranked, especially from around the 1980s. What do you think of the nostalgia trend that's happening to movies right now??, eg. all of the Star Wars making a comeback, Stranger Things, all the movies with 1980s music, and the countless sequels and reboots of movies from that time period.

The only other Universal Monsters I think that I've watched are the original Frankenstein and the Bela Lugosi's Dracula, which I don't really remember. My least favourite was Dracula though I think I really liked Lugosi's portrayal. Bride of Frankenstein is easily my favourite so far. It gets better the more I think about it. The themes which dissect the roles of relationships between creators, creations, friends, and companions. An extremely compelling story and overall a masterpiece indeed. Also that scene between the monster and the blind man is among my favourite scenes from any film in general. I hear they're rebooting these films as a sort of franchise like these superhero movies, and they've already done The Mummy, which I haven't seen. How do you feel about them rebooting these classic movies?

Over time I'd say I've leaned less towards very mainstream filmmakers like Nolan and Tarantino, and more towards classics like Hithcock and Kurosawa. Villeneuve has been pretty impressive track record recently as well. I really like all the filmmakers you mentioned quite a lot as well, though I should see more of their work. I've been trying to expand my film-watching horizons more this year, watching stuff from all around the globe, as well as more artsy and experimental movies. Most of them have left me with mixed feeling tbqh. Often I'll warm up to some like you did with 2001 and Blade Runner though. Some filmmakers I oughright hated like Terrence Malick. Ugh. Maybe the boring Director I've ever watched, completely up his own ass. Have you seen any of his work? If so what'd you think? Any way are there any types of movies or particular filmmakers that you dislike in general?

I can't say I'm a big fan of this new nostalgia trend, but like you said, when it's its own thing I usually like it a bit more. Unlike say, Episode VII which had the exact same plot as Ep IV because they didn't have the balls to try something new. In comparison, stuff like Stranger Things I enjoyed quite a bit because for the most part it stands on its own merits with strong characters and intriguing story, and a somewhat more original premise. As for horseshit like the new Ghostbusters and Jurassic World...I just hope the 2010s/2020s doesn't become a tryhard version of the 1980s. What'd you think of the last two Star Wars movies? And do you think the new ones will get any better?

Hello sir, it's me. How are you? We've seen each other numerous times while commenting, but I don't think we have formally acknowledged each other before, so allow me to break the ice. Just wanted to tell you that I like your artistic top 10 very much. You seem to have a keen eye for expressionist beauty.
