He'll flip ya...Flip ya for real...
Right, nobody says its a bad movie.It depends on how a person would define, "Important to the zeitgeist," I guess.
Obviously, it's not a Marvel superhero movie. But it was a science fiction movie that was important enough to be nominated for an Academy Award, and it won the most prestigious writing award (best original screenplay)- in fact, it racked those awards up. I can't think of a single person (aka, critic) who didn't have it as one of the top movies that year.
Not a lot of people talk about either of these movies much. Unlike, Jurassic Park or Star Wars.I would agree that it is very similar to Eternal Sunshine; then again, I also think that's another film that, because of the writing, acting, and plot, continue to be relevant.
Yeah im not saying Her shouldn't be on the list, just that you might be overvaluing the recognition and impact of the film in general. Which half the films on this list do hit that mass recognition level, albeit more on the popcorn level.Who knows? I'm a film person, and I talk to other film people. I thought the particular choice to use Her was a particularly poor one. Look at the list- Colossal? A Quiet Place? The Endless?* Moon?** Rogue One.***
If someone chooses to take out that movie, out of the ones mentioned, that's definitely a choice.
Agreed. I dont think these movies should be compared to things like Her, but thats just my humble opinion.And it's interesting how one ranks popcorn movies, as well. I mean, I think that Pacific Rim, for a lot of reasons, had continuing cultural relevance that, say, Avatar never did.
