Lists by dan-thurston

a list of 70 titles
The funniest comedy films from 2000 - 2012/13, IMO.

Rated mainly by how much they amuse me but also whether they can be re-watched and still be good/funny and a tiny bit of how good the storyline is.

[2013 update coming soon]

There's a few movies that'll probably make it onto the list later, but I haven't seen yet: The Hangover III, Grown Ups 2, Scary MoVie (Scary Movie 5), The Internship, Fanboys, Anchorman 2, This Is The End, A Haunted House, The Worlds End, Movie 43, The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, Due Date, She's Out of My League, Good Luck Chuck, She's the One, In Bruges, Be Kind Rewind, Funny People, Saved, Little Miss Sunshine, Ghost World, Up, In The Loop, Paul.

a list of 59 titles
A list of the best movies that have interesting story lines, have you thinking about them for a long time afterwards (and during them), have a twist, have unusual ideas, mess with your mind and contain some level of surrealism. Most chose to call these 'Mindfu*k Movies'.

a list of 17 titles
[Under Construction - When at 50 films will be put into a more precise order]
 
a list of 34 titles
The greatest/best TV series, since 1999, IMO. Mainly comedies but a few drama's thrown in as well. I'm not really going to count things like documentaries (Planet Earth, Frozen Planet, Life, Ray Mears, Bear Grylls).
