There will be blood. Yeah, I know, it isn't on the list, but it should be.

From the list, IMO, Return of the King.

A lot of decent choices actually, my favorite three being Moonlight, Birdman, and No Country for Old Men.

I like most of the movies on the list but my favorite is The Kings Speech, followed by Return Of The King and Gladiator

Moonlight and it's not really close. No Country For Old Men was a good movie, but in my opinion a weaker effort for the Coens. Birdman was pretty good as well.

Million Dollar Baby. One of only a handful of times a film has made me cry.

There's some other top notch movies in there, some dreck too. I haven't seen Chicago or Green Book and probably never will.

What's the worst title on that list? My least favorites are The Departed and Crash.

I've never heard of Moonlight. I looked it up on Netflix, and there are two movies, 2002 and 2016. Which is it?

Chicago, Crash, 12 Year Slave, Moonlight, Birdman, and American Beauty were all pretty lame in my opinion. Moonlight, Crash, and Chicago are the worst of the bunch.

tough call between NCFOM and The Hurt Locker. lots of good ones i loved up there, but those 2 blew me away, giving the nudge to Country simply because it was masterful in all that it tried to convey and not convey. the writing by Coens, their direction, the acting (with Bardem winning Oscar), just masterful cinema making all around...

Hurt Locker for me. One of the only times Iíve legitimately felt tense watching a movie.

2016. About a gay, black man's trials and tribulations in Miami. I'd say it's worth a watch, but I wasn't head over heels like every one else.

I loved it beyond all reason, but I'm a huge fan of the directorial style of the Dardennes and Farhadi, and to see that in a (relatively mainstream) Hollywood film was a great joy for me.

I thought it was excellent and would be my second choice behind NCFOM. It also reminded me of Wong Kar-wai.

Spotlight is my favorite of the bunch, with NCFOM and Birdman relatively close.

I liked the LOTR trilogy and thought it was a nice final film, so Return of the King.
