33 Films, 33 Years: The Grand Finale!

Every director has at least 10 bad films in them. ~Robert Rodriguez

Are we ready to rumble?Let's get ready to RUMBLE!

This is it, P&Q Rangers…the final installment of what has been one very rewarding project indeed. For each of the years from 1979 to 2011, I’ve picked five of my favorite movies. I’ve let you, my readers, help me choose which one will get mercilessly reviewed, dissected and MST3K’d in a future post. And I can’t thank you guys enough.

Tonight, as the Oscars are given out, I’m watching hockey instead and finishing up this three-part project. Just as a reminder, everyone who votes and/or comments during this series will be entered to win a prize from yours truly. Voting will continue until this time next week.

Since I didn’t invite Sacha Baron Cohen to dump any deceased despots’ ashes on anybody’s formalwear tonight, let’s get this party started, shall we? I’ve again provided IMDB links for all the nominees. Lights, please…

2001: Amelie, A Beautiful MindThe Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, The Others, Rat Race

2002: Bubba Ho-Tep, The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, Minority Report, The Pianist, Signs

2003: Big Fish, Finding Nemo, The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, Seabiscuit, The Triplets of Belleville

2004: Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Finding Neverland, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Napoleon Dynamite, Shaun of the Dead

2005: Batman Begins, Cinderella Man, A History of Violence, Kung Fu Hustle, March of the Penguins

2006: Idiocracy, Little Miss Sunshine, The Pursuit of HappynessUnited 93, V For Vendetta

2007: Hot Fuzz, Juno, No Country for Old Men, Ratatouille, Sweeney Todd

2008: Gran Torino, In Bruges, Slumdog Millionaire, Tropic Thunder, WALL-E

2011: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Part 2), The Muppets, Rango, Rise of the Planet of the Apes, Super 8

Congratulations to all who took home Oscars last night, even if I didn’t watch. I can’t fault The Artist as Best Picture because I’m a sucker for a movie with a cute dog in it….especially a Jack Russell terrier.

Don’t forget to vote in Parts I and II if you haven’t already! I’m counting on you to pick some winners for me!

  1. *Prepares for “Buddha Palm”*

  2. I am shocked that District 9 is beating both Inglorious Basterds AND Zombieland!

  3. I think I have only seen 7 movies listed here, but I voted anyway…..if there was a year I had not seen any of the movies, I just voted based on which one I would probably watch if I had to watch any of them. Hope that was okay!

  4. I have learned two things from this part of your poll:

    1) 2004 was a great year for movies.
    2) I seriously need to watch more movies.

  5. I found this section of the polling the easiest (apart from 2004, where I had bizarrely had to choose between Shaun of the Dead and Finding Neverland). And I’m still not sure if I did the right thing by chosing Bubba Hotep over Lord of the Rings…

  6. Wow, I haven’t watched many movies since I stopped working in a rental shop. Also, I hate that I voted for two LOTR movies, but those years didn’t have anything else I’d vote for.

  8. Nice to reflect.. How about 1994?

    Forrest Gump / Four Wedding and a Funeral / Pulp Fiction / Quiz Show / Shawshank Redemption… and how could Gump beat Pulp Fiction or Shawshank?
