I suggest you both watch some movies that were made before 1965. Or at least one.

Have done, not impressed.
I was deliberately restricting myself to movies of the last twenty years or so, per Stuh's suggestion on the other thread. There didn't seem to be much point in re-ordering the AFI's perennial list of heavyweights. (I'm reminded of the "Top 100 Greatest Classic Rock Hits" that one of my local radio stations likes to do every so often. The only thing that changes from year to year, as far as I can tell, is whether Bob Dylan or the Rolling Stones gets to be #2 to Led Zeppelin.)
From your list, I can see why.
........14 Saw ( all of them I think..).....
1 Hard Candy
2 Blood Diamond
3 Freddy vs Jason ( yes, my little dirty secret is out.. I like slasher flicks. It isnt my FAVORITE movie, I just enjoyed it..)
4 The Devils Rejects
5 Donnie Darko
6 Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon
7 Curse of the Golden Flower
8 Memoirs of a Geisha ( the only hormone film I DO like..)
9 Old Boy
11 The Illusionist
12 Pirates of the Carribean ( the first one)
14 Saw ( all of them I think..)
1. V (1983) (TV)
2. "V" (1984)
3. V (2003)
4. V (2000) (TV)
5. "V" (1999)
6. V (2003) (V)
"Blade Runner" and others from both lists are on the AFI 400 nominations.
