    Did something awesome yesterday
A few folks have been sharing this already, but I del tit was interesting and worth sharing here as well.

177 critics were asked to list what they considered the be the best movies of the past 16 years (starting in 2000) and BBC managed to narrow down the choices into a numeric list.…

And for the lazy ones who don't feel like clicking on links (we know who you are), here's the list itself just so you can rant in the comments below how "critics don't get real people and what they like."

For any passerbys interested in wanting a second opinion and you don't trust those big time critics who are paid to say nice things about about Movies/video games/anime/manga/etc. You've come to one of the right places. We are a Group fill of critics that only wish to be heard and to fill you in on what's good or bad. Although not all of us will agree with the others' opinions, our major rule is that we respect that opinion, even if it seems wrong to us.

Our only other rule is "We do not Accept Rants"
Unless these rants have something positive to say and actually have supportive fact to back it up with; we cannot accept it. We don't want trolls on here and we don't want them bashing any of our fellow critics works or our readers for agreeing or disagreeing.

Otherwise, have a field day. It's not perfect but we do the best we can with that we know.

Our Motto
