When critics can't count

In today's local Sunday magazine there is a list of the "Best 50 Films of the Noughties". Only problem is, there are FIFTY EIGHT films on the list! The Lord of the Rings trilogy is counted as one entry (#2), the entire Harry Potter series (6 films!) is at #8 and Kill Bill: Volumes 1 & 2 is at #22.

Make a decision! It's just plain lazy and disrespectful. They are all separate movies in their own right, released in separate years with varying quality and appeal. Lumping them altogether just makes a list like this a nonsense.

Rant ends!

The 58 Top 50 films of the noughties are listed here.
