We spend a lot of time in the van these days. A LOT. So we decided to come up with a way to pass the time and also provide a service to you, the bored but well-informed lover of great things. Thus we’ve created an account at flickchart.com and have begun the arduous process of collectively ranking our favorite movies of all time. You can click here to view our list. It’s an ingenious site where you’re constantly presented with two movies and must choose which one is superior. For example, Back to the Future vs The Mummy (easy) or Austin Powers 3 vs Minority Report (surprisingly difficult). As the one-on-one match-ups accumulate it slowly puts everything in order and makes a top 20 list. We’ll be updating it constantly, basically every time we’re super bored and on decent enough speaking terms to debate the merits of Mean Girls.
Please note that ranking films in this method creates some odd moments as the list gets sorted. For instance, right now Speed is our top ranking movie. Obviously we don’t think Speed is the greatest movie of all time, it just hasn’t faced a superior film yet. Also it’s both intentionally and unintentionally entertaining, making it quite the formidable opponent. Anyway by the end of the tour we should have a finely honed list of awesome that you’d be foolish to ignore. Check back regularly, chime in, and let’s see how much time we can waste obsessing about ultimately meaningless crap.
