      Is it too early to call Villeneuve the greatest Sci-fi movie director of all time?

        I’d say he’s almost there. 4 scifi films so far (5 if you count Enemy) and all are successful and highly rated. Dude has never made a bad movie yet.

          I’ve read that he wants to make a rendezvous with Rama movie and I really hope he gets to make it because that would be wild and he’s just the right person for it.

      Though I agree, I wonder if Deadpool vs Wolverine will take that spot. The only other one that can mayyybe top those would be Beetlejuice if it’s any good. But Dune pt 2 was so good that’s it’ll be hard.

        I’m still a big Marvel fan but Dune has actually gotten me to the theaters.

        I’m looking forward to watching both the other movies you mentioned… from my couch.

    Still umming and ahing over the top 10 this year but a rough list so far would be:

    1. Twilight of the Warriors: Walled In
    2. Dune 2
    3. Civil War
    4. Late Night With the Devil
    5. Abigail
    6. Poor Things
    7. Furiosa
    8. The First Omen
    9. Boy Kills World
    10. Lisa Frankenstein

    I expect Deadpool & Wolverine to steal the top slot. Other contenders: Longlegs, Joker 2, and possibly Alien: Romulus.

    Worst: Madame Web

      I just realised The Holdovers sneaks into 2024 - I was crudely sorting my ratings by year, which obscured it’s actual UK release date. I might throw it in at #7 and then consider moving it up.
