What about the pilot is your favorite episode? It establishes some world building, but there aren't as many interesting character drama or interactions at that point. In fact, a lot of the dialogue is very wonky because of how everyone talks by referring to the name of people as their family relation (for the viewer's benefit of course). The ending of the episode is certainly interesting, but you need more of a followup to it, so it's hard to imagine that being your favorite.
Bells, bells, bells!
Cool to see Good Time on here, great film.

Yeah, Good Time is free with Prime.

I have such mixed feelings on it; such a cynical work, which would be fine but I'm still not sure what it adds up to.

I really adored High Life, which is also a very bleak film starring Pattinson released by A24.

#246. Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937)
https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/4/49/Snow_White_1937_poster.png
Dir: A bunch of dudes at Disney
Genre: Animation, Musical
Year: 1937

The first of a half-dozen Disney animated films on this lost (not counting Pixar) is also the first of their features. Going through the Disney animated filmography for this list is a pretty unrewarding task, as you find yourself having to cut true classics and weigh both influence with objective appeal. Fortunately, Snow White not only happens to be the film that sets the classic standards, but it's also one of the best of the "Golden Age" canon.

Even though it's nearly a century old, the hand-painted cels are still absolutely gorgeous and provide an aesthetic that is really unique to the era. The music ("Heigh-Ho" specifically) can hold its weight against any of the non-Renaissance Disney films, and it's rather remarkable that all of this was able to be done with virtually no precedent. Snow White is really damn good.

PS I'm not a Disney expert, so I am genuinely curious if this will be considered a good pick or not!

Snow White is ranked #312 of all-time on the TSPDT list, so critics would at least agree. The only animated films that are higher are Spirited Away and My Neighbor Totoro, though WALL-E also looks likely to displace it with time.

#245. Exit Through the Gift Shop
https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/5/57/Exit-through-the-gift-shop.jpg
Dir: Banksy (allegedly)
Genre: Documentary, Comedy
Year: 2010

If you have never heard of it, Exit Through the Gift Shop is a documentary on the rise of street artist "Mr. Brainwash." It follows his ridiculous, pretentious journey through the art world, but really serves as a parable for how susceptible people can be to intellectual group think.

I am of the opinion that the documentary itself is a "hoax"--in the sense that it is an art project in itself to comment on the state of the industry. Either way, it is wildly entertaining, hysterical, and completely enthralling. And if my speculation is true, it is also one of the smartest, most compelling works of art in the past decade--fooling critics with a movie about fooling critics. Just brilliant.

There are only 2 animated movies in the top 300? That's pretty absurd tbqh!
