Roger Ebert's list of great films

 Artificial Intelligence: A.I. (2001):  This tried to be a lot darker than I was expecting.  I say tried because it has some pretty adult themes, but then their depictions of the futuristic society would be so ridiculous that it would immediately lose all credibility.  Weirdly, the most unrealistic part of this movie to me was that a giant corporation sent their new flagship prototype home with an employee after a rigorous selection and then seemed to wash their hands of it.  Literally no monitoring of any kind.  The movie's also way too long.
