Re: Artist of the Month-Bruce Springsteen, Results!

Sorry Holden but there are some inaccuracies on the release dates: 99 | "Sad Eyes" was released as a single in 1999 but was previously released in 1998 as part of the "Tracks" album 91 | "Shackled and Drawn" was released in 2012 as part of the album "Wrecking Ball" 78 | "Loose Ends" was recorded in...

Re: End of Decade Film Poll-List Thread

Most of the movies that have been vying for top spots are pretty expected by me at least, but one that has been dominating over most is really surprising. I forget if it’s number one right now, but it was for a while by a good margin and I was genuinely surprised it was at number one for so long.

I love that the #2 movie of the decade on TSPDT only has two votes here, neither of them particularly high.
The Tree of Life isn’t doing super great either... definitely going to place highish but it just doesn’t have the amount of votes it needs

Re: Parasite (Spoilers)

I didn’t mind that because the movie basically felt like two movies to me. The second is much darker and less fun, perhaps a metaphor. There are highs but in a the class system the film is representing, ultimately no one is really getting away from the negative aspects.
