    Post all comments or reviews of your 2002 movies here. As well, post any errors, misspellings or if you have any questions about release dates, ask them here.
    I did add to my "Movies seen for the first time" list.
    With, The Adventures of Buckaroo Bunzai
    Not a bad film with interesting characters.

    Just wondering - why does "Bill_Harris" have two slots reserved in the 2002 Film List? [​IMG]

    Michael,
    Jason told me, that Bill thought he should save two slots, incase we need a discussion thing. He's only sticking with one.
    We now have a discussion thread in here[​IMG]

    I just sent a note in the 2002 Film List for an admin to delete it.
    This is a great idea and would be even further awesome if the 2002 List was stickified. [​IMG]

    I don't know guys but having another separate thread is kind of repetitive when there is already an official discussion thread for most major released films as it is.

    Besides, most of the comments that get posted on the 200X Films list are reviews anyway, which should go in the official review thread.

    Just a question,

    Does Gosford Park count as 2001 or 2002, by Academy standards? I saw it this week, but I'm not sure if it was out a full week in 2001 (I bet it was).

    Thanks!

    Yes, Gosford Park qualifies as a 2001 release by Academy standards as it was originally released in December.

    Personally, I would like this to stay! As I can look back at people posts about this subject. Instead of them getting erased.
    I update with
    Impostor
    A movie that looks like it should be a Sci-Fi Channel movie of the week. Plus, I guess it didn't help this movie sitting on Disneys shelf collecting dust.
    But anyway, this movie suffers from silly dialogue, bad editing(underground hospital) and lame scare moment. The directing and cinematography are really hacked up. Nothing can stay in frame.
    Look for my rating in my list. RATING

    I was wondering the same thing. It will go into my ineligible pile when I see it later this month.

    For me, if anything is re-released, I count it as a movie I saw in that year, but NOT as a best/worst movie.

    Just a suggestion:

    In the 2001 Film List, there is an "Index" at the top of the page to jump down to a specific person's post (a great idea, by the way). But, rather than using vB URL tags (which causes a new browser window to open), try just using HTML tags so that the same window is used.

    I make a complete distinction between a movie that has been simply re-released and a movie that has been revised in some fashion.
    Yes, that means my criteria allows for both Apocalypse Now Redux and Beauty and the Beast: Special Edition to be "new releases" in 2001 and 2002 respectively. I got the impression we got to define our criteria for these lists (within reason) anyway.
    I've been thinking about this as far back as the Star Wars: Special Edition. Sure, the box office was added to the total of the original, but since the film was changed, it's not like you would go to the movie as if it were the original version. It's a different movie. Let's say a theater in your neck of the woods was going to show Star Wars.. I know there are some of you here who would choose whether to go or not based on whether they showed an original print or a Special Edition one.

    My First true update of 2002 is....Imposter!

    How long did they scrap this piece of she-ite for?.

    After a half hour , all i could think about was how much better Farscape is..and why am i missing the repeat of Six Feet Under on HBO.

    Well, as of today we have 36 active members!
    Thats great. Hopefully we will see alot of imput about all these movies in 2002.
    Also, don't forget. Sometime there will be a 2002 alternative thread list where we talk about the art, alternative, foreign films of 2002.
    Jason should have the index finished sometime soon. Not sure if he's keeping the best film of 2001 by our names. But if he is, and you don't have one by your name. Let us know so you can have your favorite film of 2001 by your name.
