Sorry about the mixup, JohnErle. Evidence destroyed, officials bribed, bodies buried. Now lets all move on with our lives...

MOVIE #2


Shrykespeare - Monty Python and the Holy Grail (1975)
do not get it.


silversurfer - Edward Scissorhands (1990)
nice description, i love it as well, like i said the other day, i wish i had placed it higher, but really it doesn't matter, great flick awesome choice.


transformers - Sin City (2005)
is it really a game changer? there have been a few that have copied it but they have flopped badly, itself didn't even do that well, and the sequel has been stuck in development hell for quite a while. So really what has it changed. I admit, it was kinda cool to watch at first, but after a while with no characters to root for, i just didn't care at all about the movie, and the second time i had to watch, it was torture.


englishozzy - The Matrix (1999)
now this is entertainment. fun stuff.


Ron Burgundy - Fight Club (1999)
one of the david fincher films that i don't exactly love. (although i haven't seen zodiac yet)


Buscemi - Star Wars: A New Hope (1977)[/b
figured this would show up in many top tens. i like it, but don't love it. it's fun and all, but there is just a little something missing that keeps it from being great to me.


[b]Geezer - The Dark Knight (2008)

i really hope it wasn't inception that knocked this off to number two, as this movie is better in almost every which way. my only problems are though that batman takes a backseat in his own movie and it's a bit long winded, but it is still a greatly entertaining movie.






Haven't Seen... so on the list they go.

I now have 46 films to watch not including the #1s, but i expect the number to be around 50. which is not bad considering it could of been 170.


thegreenarrow - Brief Encounter (1945)

Chienfantome - In the Mood for Love (2000)

numbersix - The Big Lebowski (1998)

Banks - Leon (The Professional) (1994)

BarcaRulz - Cidade de Deus (aka: City of God) (2002)

leestu - One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest (1975)

W - One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (1975) [/b

[b]NSpan - Brazil (1985)


JohnErle - Bull Durham (1988)
