      I know it's all subjective and there's films on that list I don't agree with but I'm happy to accept some people are into them, that's cool. But I am really really struggling with the idea that someone thinks "Ted" is the 60th best film of the last 20 years.

      When I looked, it was "There will be Blood".... or is Deadpool II another name for that

      I was about to get furious at the absence of The Straight Story. A quick check shows it was released in 1999 though so all is well. Kudos to Shoplifters at 15. Well worth a go if you've not seen it.

      Indeed. I suppose they tried to desnootify themselves once or twice - Paddington 2, for instance, although that was a great watch.
      I'm peeved to find 12 Years a Slave at number 2 whilst A Separation is number 36. And wait a minute what the assfackery is Lincoln doing in there? I'm going off for an hour-long loud tut for lunch now.

      Like I say there are things I didn't enjoy, but I understand they might be somebody's cup of tea. But if Ted had been made on Monday, I wouldn't even have it the top 60 films of this week.

      No Blade Runner 2049?! I was expecting it to be top 10. The most visually stunning film I have ever seen, and a profoundly moving plot.

      Spirited Away feels like a token nod to Studio Ghibli, where films like The Tale of Princess Kaguya belong higher.

      Also still baffled that it seems to have been widely agreed that The Incredibles is the best Pixar film, with no space for the far, far more emotionally intelligent Inside Out or Up.

      All in my subjective opinion, of course.

      Not 1 Marvel film in the list, and they have basically owned the 21st century from a box office perspective.

      The list is very "the Guardian"

      It also got me thinking, if the list was extended to the last 40 years, how many of the ones for last 20 years would have made it on? Not many
