    2) Eternal Sunshine of The Spotless Mind
    3) Kiss Kiss Bang Bang
    4) High Fidelity
    5) American Beauty
    I remember you got really excited one day and declared KKBB as your #1. I really enjoyed it but in my eyes, ts not on the same level as the other two ahead of it. Haven't seen High Fidelity yet. I've been meaning to watch it for a while and haven't got around to it. Not a big John Cusak fan but he was awesome in Being John Malkovich. Also really need to see American Psycho.

    • KKBB was my go-to drunk movie for a while, so I ended up watching it a whole hell of a lot. The humor gets me every time. While it obviously isnt the same kind of cinematic achievement as the first two, it has just as much rewatchability as any movie Ive encountered and I laugh throughout the entire movie, which is more then most proclaimed comedies these days dictate.

      High Fidelity is a movie that is unique in that it addresses the issues presented in stereotypical romantic comedies from a male based point of view, rather then the female driven approach which dominates the genre as of late. I love Cusack and the supporting cast is excellent as well.

        I tried making a Top 5-10 list recently and my list bugged me. All the movies I had up there are all well-know, highly regarded films. I was a little disappointed in myself that I didn't really have any lesser known personal faves up there. I don't know why. I just couldn't find a place for those movies in my all-time favorites. I think I was putting to much thought into best instead of favorite. I'll probably try and give it another crack sometime soon.

          • Tripped on some good acid yesterday, and watched Across the Universe.. By far, the trippiest movie I have ever seen.

                  Anchorman and Super Bad have been so over-quoted, that I'm starting to miss the:

                  "I desperately want to make love to a school boy...How was your day? Not bad, I fell of the jet way again...We got no food! No Jobs! Our pets head's are falling off!"

                  Still great. One thing though, that John Denver's full of **** man.

                    Brink and Johnny Tsunami head the list of greatness.
                    Brink's "Movie-Meter" on IMDB is up 90% this week. I think they can thank the SWDC'ers for that. Your welcome.

                    Mr. (Ralph) Brinker changed my life. Now when I wake up each morning, I don't say "today I'm gonna talk" ...I say, "today I'm gonna skate."

                        • I saw Creation last night. Bettany was good, but... there just want much to this movie. For those who dont know what Creation is, its the story of how Darwin came to write On the Origin of Species. Its a well made movie with good music, costumes, etc. But Darwin's life was just too dull to be made into a movie, and it showed here.
