#35 - South Park: Bigger Longer & Uncut
(82 Points) 6 of 32 Lists - Highest Ranking - #4 CJones

#36 - Trainspotting
(81 Points) 6 of 32 Lists - Highest Ranking - #4 evilRVR

I had both of these on my list, but I was worried they wouldn't make the countdown because they're so controversial and scary.

I'm just so glad I'm such a free thinker, unencumbered by any odd moral stances. It's people like me who really shake things up and challenge the status quo. I'm so cool and different and unique and awesome!!!

I just found Trainspotting a bit naff, good soundtrack however. I have a different film from the same people on my list though. :)

And to think the South Park movie came out only 2 months after Columbine. I imagine there was an uproar about the movie because of that, right (I'm just a young'in here)

Not that I recall.  The only movie related controversy off of Columbine that I recall was in regards to The Matrix, specifically the lobby scene where they go in wearing trenchcoats with guns a blazing.  And whether or not that scene influenced the Columbine shooters.

And it's Lil Wayne actually, not Little Wayne. That's right, his name even stupider than you thought.
Speaking of which, I've been wondering, is it Fity Cent or Fifty Cent? 'cause heard both.

Yeah, I know. I was making fun of it.

And there are actually several rappers/hip-hop artists I really like: Saul Williams, Turbo T Double, Cex, Scroobius Pip. They're just little-known. Sorry—lil' known.




Back on topic, South Park is the first movie I forgot about completely. Definitely would have been on there.

Trivia fact! While Princess Mononoke was acquired after it was released in Japan, its American release was delayed for almost two years, allegedly because of a negative reception at a St. Paul, Minnesota test screening.

I was just thinking about Princess Mononoke and how we need it on Blu-Ray. Who owns the US rights now? I noticed Lionsgate didn't rerelease it when they acquired the rights to the Miramax library.
And to think the South Park movie came out only 2 months after Columbine. I imagine there was an uproar about the movie because of that, right (I'm just a young'in here)

Not that I recall.  The only movie related controversy off of Columbine that I recall was in regards to The Matrix, specifically the lobby scene where they go in wearing trenchcoats with guns a blazing.  And whether or not that scene influenced the Columbine shooters.

Gotcha. I do remember reading about The Matrix being blamed, as well as Marilyn Manson, Nine Inch Nails and Doom.

Huih...  You may have noticed my last post ended mid word. Firefox decided to jump to a different page for reasons I don't understand. When I navigated back, everything I had typed was gone. I can only assume I accidentally posted it mid word despite not touching the mouse, and I have no idea how I could have done it with the keyboard .

Anyway... Here's the rest, in condeced form :

Zombieland was the most original and entertaining zombie movie I've seen since Shaun of the Dead. My only complaint is that it dragged a bit while they were at Bill Murray's house.

And it's Lil Wayne actually, not Little Wayne. That's right, his name even stupider than you thought.
Speaking of which, I've been wondering, is it Fity Cent or Fifty Cent? 'cause heard both.

IMHO, Zombieland was BEST when it was in Bill Murray's house. Seeing him re-enact Ghostbusters was great fun. I think BM in ZL is my fave celeb cameo ever.

Yeah I loved the Bill Murray bits in Zombieland.

Cool to see two off my all time favorites of all favorite fabulous time, back to back. American Beauty and Princess Mononoke

Princess Mononoke is, in a word,  ‘perfection’. There’s not a missed beat, not a flaw in the theme or the narrative. Director Hayao Miyazaki delivers his message (about ecological destruction) but I never felt like he was hammering me over the head with it. I loved the ambiguity: Lady Eboshi isn't cut and dried villainy, she does good for her people. On the other hand, nature can be volatile and dangerous (I laughed when the wolf grabs the Prince's head and starts shaking it – these aint Disney’s happy, helpful singing animals); we are given many shades of gray. The ending is epic, truly breathtaking. Not just great animation but one of Japans greatest cinematic efforts.

Oh, and I like those forest ghost baby things, cute and freaky.

American Beauty just spoke to me - I'm a weird artist type, so I get the floating bag thing. And I get Lester -- I like his character trajectory and how eventually he takes his eyes off himself. At the point where he's about to have what he's desired - he finally sees her for what she is. Just a kid, not a goddess, not a thing to take. It wakes him up and finally comes out of himself and sees the big picture. I know our beloved Mike Nelson has stated his disdain for the flick, and I get that the elements of farce are troublesome for some folks, but it's meaningful to me.

American Beauty was on my list, I believe, but I've sort of fallen out of love with it in recent years.  Still a good movie and the main reason I love Kevin Spacey.

(82 Points) 6 of 32 Lists - Highest Ranking - #4 CJones

I love this movie and I've seen it more times than I can count. As I'm not a fan of musicals in general, it probably doesn't mean a whole lot that this is by far my favorite musical...but this is by far my favorite musical.


#32 - American Beauty
(88 Points) 6 of 32 Lists - Highest Ranking - #3 George Harrison

Had this at #4. I loved everything about this movie. It's rare I connect so strongly both emotionally and philosophically with a film, but this was definitely one of those times. It seems the nineties was a good decade for that, as four of the films on my list share that same rarefied status.


IMHO, Zombieland was BEST when it was in Bill Murray's house. Seeing him re-enact Ghostbusters was great fun. I think BM in ZL is my fave celeb cameo ever.

ZOMFG!!! BM IN ZL FTW AMIRITE?!? ROTFLMFAO!!!!!
