I already typed up my informal review in the review thread, but man, I loved the Aimee Mann songs in that movie.

Especially Wise Up.

I thought it was lame that Save Me was nominated for the Oscar over Wise Up.

Phil Collins won anyway. God, that was lame. Over Randy Newman for Toy Story 2 and Blame Canada from South Park, too.

Save Me is pretty terrible. Momentum and Wise Up are my two fave tracks from the soundtrack.

Man, that was a good movie.

The ones I've seen are bolded. Shit, that's an impressive list.

What about Election or the classic Galaxy Quest?

Oops, I had Election on my first draft that got erased.

Shit, that should be on my Top 15 list, too. Oh well.

You forgot to highlight The Phantom Menace, unless you successfully erased it from your memory.

You haven't seen Being John Malkovich?! Jonez & Kauffman, man.

Going back to the '80s for a second, I'm surprised how little love John Carpenter gets around here. Same with probably the ultimate cult classic:

I did forget The Phantom Menace.

Being John Malkovich is on the NetFlix queue. I can only see so many movies at a time.

Another note, the director of the Marcel Proust adaptation Time Regained is Raul Ruiz, not Ruix.

Apologies.

Really? I could have sworn we had a discussion and/or ranking of his films not too long ago. I love Carpenter, extremely underrated director. Great sense of composition.

I'm pretty sure The Thing was on my list for the 1980's, but I could be wrong.

I think it was between you, me, and NSFW.

This podcast I listen to, Watching the Directors, is going to do a Carpenter show soon. It's amazing what that guy did from '76-'88.

And no, The Thing didn't make your list. As much as I love that movie, Big Trouble in Little China will probably always be my favorite Carpenter movie.
