    I have yet to jump onto the LotR bandwagon.But, WALL-E!

  3. Sara says :

    WALL-E!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. Jose says :

    WALL-E is so wonderful so perfect choice. Interesting that you didn't put all the Lord of the Rings in one entry.

  5. Castor says :

    Nice to see Spirited Away in the top 10

  6. Luke says :

    Bob: Indeed – it's one of the best period comedies I've seen in ages, and Bening was totally robbed of that Oscar!Simon: It's a shame about the LOTR thing, since it's quite the spectacle, both visually and content(ally) appealing.Jose: Call me a purist, but I just can't consider them all one film, considering I'm partial to the final chapter anyway…Castor: Miyazaki is pure genius! 🙂

  7. Film Conqueror says :

    Lord of the Rings…those three movies are in a class of their own
