Films of the 21st Century Draft

Movie Draft time again! Haven't had one of these in awhile.

You can draft any "film" released after December 31, 1999. (and yes, I know the 21st century didn't technically begin until 2001, but screw that, it's my draft)

Since what a "film" is has undergone some interesting changes over the last decade or so, I am going to allow a wide interpretation - the only rule I have is that it can't be an ongoing TV series. If you choose something that originally aired on TV, it must be a stand-alone movie or limited series. So Breaking Bad or The Americans are out, for example. But if you think a Vine or a commercial or a Youtube warrants a selection, go for it. Think of it like this: If the "film" was made in a continuing production - without stoppages for seasons, say - it's good to go. And if it was originally supposed to be only 1 season, but is now making more seasons, it's out.

And I'm going to limit the choice of limited series to one pick per drafter. Makes sense?

So who's in?

Please do more than list movies. It's the WRITE UP that makes the pick!

Here's the Spreadsheet

I've no idea what century I'm currently in and don't care. Abbot and Costello Rule. I'm in for whatever this is all about.

Re: Films of the 21st Century Draft

I would 100% be in this draft if I wasn't heading to vegas for a week soon.

So I say too early. Wait two weeks for a start day.
And then I'm in.

are we meant to draft personal favourites, what's objectively the best, or just whatever we want?

Re: Films of the 21st Century Draft

Ok if it's good enough for my pog friend D1iab it's plenty good for me. I'm in! I got great taste in all the arty stuff like books, tv, tuna, movies, even real art. A regular Renaissance man that's me.

After I enter these drafts I always tell myself never again, but that part comes later.

Tuna is one of the better early REO albums, before they sold out with High Infidelity.
