Gordo: Of course the Python film has many tasteless bits. But one cannot treat it as realism of any sort.

Whereas only a nasty little man like Truman Capote could have invested a female who bears no resemblance to any real woman on the face of the earth in allegedly realistic fiction. And only in our culture could anyone take that neurotic, self-centered, shallow and vicious excuse for a human being seriously--less alone as some sort of feminist icon.

I would agree in re: golf or tennis. Not, God save us, Happy Gilmore.

Hoosiers? Nauseating sentimentality.

Football? Not The Blind Side. Try North Dallas Forty.

And in the spirit of the season I will leave it there without commenting on any other lumps of coal.

WAS: At least the NFR immortalized A Christmas Story. But when are they gonna immortalize Tarantino? Specifically Pulp Fiction or Reservoir Dogs (I''d personally hold off on Kill Bill until next year, so that we'd get both parts in one stroke)?

Top films that need to be immortalized by the NFR (in no particular order):

Pulp Fiction
Reservoir Dogs
The Right Stuff
The Usual Suspects
The Rabbit of Seville
Die Hard
A number of Hitchcock films
The rest of Kubrick's filmography (including Fear and Desire)
The Fountainhead
Memento
The Lord of the Rings trilogy
Kill Bill (both parts)

And that's all my mind can process for the moment.

Gordo: Generally good candidates--I would exclude Die Hard (OK, not brilliant) and Fear and Desire is only to interest to the Kubrick completist, and of margin interest at best. It reads like a second-rate study for Paths of Glory--which is in turn a second-rate film.

C. Golden: For the films I'm looking forward to next year, the only ones I can agree with you on are Pacific Rim and Star Trek Into Darkness. Iron Man 3 is borderline (I confess of not being a die hard fan of the Iron Man movies, with Iron Man 2 boring me to tears).

As for your favorite films of this year, the only one that I am the least bit curious to see is The Raid. As far as films I've seen, the only one I really liked was Skyfall. The rest, I either have seen and don't care for them, or I haven't the slightest desire to see them, period.
