Yay, Iron Giant.  Also, what language were the descriptions translated from?

I don't know what you're talking about.  They make perfect sense.

One of mine down so far, never sure how I'm going to go in these things. My tastes are usually not shared by many

Being John Malkovich was on my overall list but didn't make the final 25.  Loved the overall bizarreness of it.

Never seen The Iron Giant or Rushmore (but think that maybe I should.)

Rushmore is great, but I guess it depends on your tolerance for Wes Anderson and his particularl style.

Rushmore is great, but I guess it depends on your tolerance for Wes Anderson and his particularl style.

I just recently finished off Anderson's filmography by watching it and really liked it. Life Aquatic and Fantastic Mr. Fox may be my favorites overall from him, but I could probably see Rushmore being his all-around best movie. Anderson may have that strange, quirky, somewhat surreal style, but he owns it lock and stock and makes it work. That's the key part, that he can make it all flow so well without getting irritating (unless you're just dead set against its very nature).

Also, I really consider myself an Anderson fan now, and I can safely say that The Darjeeling Limited doesn't really work. Dunno why I'm saying that now, I guess I've been meaning to for a while.

Now I wish I had scored Iron Giant higher, but it most definitely deserves a spot on this list.

I'd say The Royal Tenenbaums is his best movie. It's definitely my favorite. Not only does it have the requisite quirkiness, but I think it's incredibly heartfelt and touching. It's the most moving of his films, in my opinion.

I do hope we eventually get around to doing other decades. It's a great idea for the L.O.C., and clearly a popular one. Thirty-two lists! That'll do, folks. That'll do.

Iron Giant and Rushmore were on my lists. I should have probably ranked Giant higher on my 25, but at least he made it.

Wes Anderson is one of my favorite directors and I watched Rushmore again a few weeks ago. It still holds up. I know Wes isn't for everyone, but I've always liked him as well as the films that inspired him  (The Graduate, Harold and Maude)

It's too hard to pick a favorite Wes Anderson movie.  They are all fantastic for different reasons.  I have to thank Rushmore for making me a huge fan of satire.  The suicide scene from Royal Tenenbaums is one of the most haunting moments in film, especially with Elliott Smith playing (2 years before his own suicide).

By the way, a fantasitc double feature: Rushmore and The Graduate

EDIT:
I've always liked him as well as the films that inspired him  (The Graduate, Harold and Maude)

That's funny. You beat me to it.

I think I'd put Tennenbaums #1 (but that's for a list for the best of the 2000-2009). There are so many memorable sequences. The suicide you mentioned. Richie and Margot’s declaration of love in a tent, Henry and Etheline’s kiss coming after a pratfall and confession, the look on Margot’s face as she gets off a bus, accompanied by the Nico song. Those sounds and images from that film are burned into my brain.

well im shut out so far lots of good ones though that i probably would have considered if i spent more time making my list.  the mummy was definately a big film for me when i was younger.

I love rushmore though i think i prefer wes anderson's other films a bit more.  life aquatic is the one for me.

Wayne's World is one I absolutely loved when it came out but I haven't seen it in ages and am worried that it hasn't aged well.  Need to revisit it at some point.
