Top Tens: My view

I have had another article published on curnblog.com

It concerns films (again), and is about the difficulties of choosing top lists.

If you are interested, please follow this link. http://curnblog.com/2014/04/15/top-ten-films-mission-impossible/

Thanks for your interest. Pete.

  1. I identify completely with this post! My favourite films, and even favourite actors, change over time, and I always really struggle to answer questions about my favourites, I tend to just offer a “recent favourite”. I think that’s a natural part of being a film fan though constantly finding new films to get excited about!

    1. Thanks for the comment Claire. I am just overwhelmed by lists of ‘top 10 of these’ or ‘best 50 that’. It is all subjective, impossible to verify, and purely a matter of taste. The best we can say is ‘we think’ that something is a great film etc. I have even been guilty myself in the past, so would just like to see it all stop! (Off the soapbox now…)
      Best wishes, Pete.

  2. Hah, yeah, I ‘suck’ at top X list, and even more so at naming single favorites. And, I completely agree with the first commentor on your CB post that they should all have the qualified “momentary” attached to them.
