Post Bonus Episode: Top 100 Entry #2
JB just revealed via Twitter that two new titles will show up in his Top 100 next week. Obviously, one of them is BEFORE MIDNIGHT. But what about the other? Clearly it's either LIKE FATHER, LIKE SON or LIFE ITSELF. So let's guess that one too, shall we? Same rules apply as the other bonus episode, with a cutoff time of Saturday 11:59 pm EST.

Pick your movie and guess the position. You will only be eligible for points if you guess the movie correctly.

My guess (edited 1 time only)-- LIKE FATHER LIKE SON: 75

I'll also guess Life Itself, at 84.

Like Father, Like Son - 97

Let's pause a moment and spare a thought for a personal favorite of mine that I was always glad James thought highly of as well but will now be relegated to the Honorable Mentions: Dead Again. I recently rewatched this and it's definitely still as great as ever.

P.S.: Meh, edit or no edit doesn't really matter to me. I should have thought it was LFLS because I underestimated his rating pretty badly the first time around IIRC.

It isn' t so hard to guess the movie, is it?

EDIT This was more surprising than the plot twist of The Usual Suspects!

Like Father Like Son -88

Hey guys, JB told me in an email that the movie in question is LIKE FATHER LIKE SON. Talk about a surprise, eh? Because it would be no fun if no one got any points, I'll allow everybody one edit in light of this information. I'm not sure when he'll update his Top 100, so get it in sooner rather than later.

So to be clear, Life Itself is NOT a contender?

Nope. I emailed him to see what the plan was for this week. He won't be reviewing any theatrical releases (aside from a brief extra paragraph about Forrest Gump IMAX), so instead he'll work on 12 ANGRY MEN plus his additions of BEFORE MIDNIGHT and LIKE FATHER LIKE SON to his Top 100.

It's a fact, guys. LFLS is the movie in question. It's on Netflix streaming right now, so he obviously watched it again and found its status only increased. Sometimes a second viewing will do that.

Wow, wasn't expecting that. Is it too late to guess? Otherwise...

I guess this means that if James was going to put on a mid-Year top 10, Like Father, Like Son would be #1, not Life Itself like I had originally guessed. Huh.

James updated it! Before Midnight in 68. LFLS in 83.
So looks like Pedro was closest for Before Midnight, and peng and I were closest for LFLS.

Wow, I thought Before Midnight was going to be higher on the list since James said it was the best of the trilogy. I guess he must have changed his mind after multiple viewings. Well, congrats to the people who won!

Alright. And so it's settled. Pedro gets a point for BEFORE MIDNIGHT, and peng/Steven get a point each for LFLS. I will update the leaderboard sometime on Sunday. Thanks for playing, everyone.
