I do like the comic book film genre, but I didn't put any comic book adaptations on the list because quite frankly, I'm not really excited about any of the upcoming ones. Ever since comic book films became huge summer blockbusters, they've become too generic and formulaic. More emphasis is put on appealing to the widest possible audience as opposed to a focus on telling unique compelling stories. Instead of mining all the great pre-existing material from the comics, they go with telling the same hero story over-and-over again. However, when a character is entrusted to a passionate filmmaker like Christopher Nolan who is focused on making a great film and not doing what everyone else is doing, that gets me excited. I'm excited about Darren Aronofsky being brought in to direct Wolverine 2, and I'm excited for Batman 3, but neither of those are 2011.

Roman Polanski is one of the greatest filmmakers of all time and one of my top favorites, and The Ninth Gate is without question a fantastic film. Although I really enjoyed The Ninth Gate, I'm a bit more partial to Rosemary's Baby, The Pianist and The Tenant. But that's the great thing about film, there are so many great ones. I love so many films that it would really be impossible for me to say that something was the greatest of all time, but I'm glad you didn't say that you thought the greatest film of all time was Epic Movie, or something like that.
