Me too... I thought for sure they would time Godfather Part 2 for the Fathom Event in November.

Haven't seen anything yet. Since it's still two weeks of Godfathers, maybe they haven't gone ahead of that yet.

Amy's in Spain I think according to her instagram. Maybe when she gets back.

I stopped posting where to stream these because justwatch.com makes it so easy, but it's worth mentioning that The Best Years of Our Lives will be shown on TCM on Veterans Day (November 11, which is presumably why Paul and Amy scheduled this one here) and will likely be available to stream on demand from TCM for a few days afterwards.

And while I'm mentioning it, TCM has an insanely good month of programming in November, including a whopping 25% of the AFI Top 100 list: Chinatown, Casablanca, On the Waterfront, North By Northwest, The Bridge on the River Kwai, The Searchers, The Grapes of Wrath, Sunrise, Tootsie, Shane, Dr. Strangelove, To Kill a Mockingbird, Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, Cabaret, The Last Picture Show, The Wild Bunch, The Maltese Falcon, All About Eve, Lawrence of Arabia, Citizen Kane, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Sullivan’s Travels, and Spartacus are yet to air on TCM this month.  Plus they're showing a few that got booted from the 1998 list, like GiantGuess Who's Coming to Dinner?, and Doctor Zhivago, plus some that I think should be on the list, like Dog Day Afternoon.  It's a dream month for anyone with TCM and a DVR.

That will be an interesting conversation, and I'll be very excited for the rest of us to compare our own Best of the Decade.

Hmm, interesting that they're doing Star Wars before the 75 film check-in.  I wonder if they're just going to skip it this quarter.

I think that doing Star Wars when they are is a great idea. It not only will make it close to the release date of the new film, it breaks up all the "Best of the Decade" episodes nicely (especially great for me as I tend to have seen like 20% of those films), AND it even gives movies released towards the end of 2019 a better shot of making it in. They'd pretty much have to be released on Dec. 31st to not make it before recording. And even then, Paul and Amy may have gotten the chance to see them early.

I wonder which one they're going to end on. Casablanca seems like the only high ranking one left (if they want to end on a proverbial, cinematic high note).

I was kinda hoping they'd do Butch Cassidy right after The Wild Bunch because they both came out the same year*, both have an element of Americans going down to Mexico and getting in over their heads, having a band of bounty hunters on their tail, but so completely different.

* I didn't think to check the release date on these two until this rewatch and realizing it, it just seemed nuts.
