Apollo 13 was a BIG movie for me as a kid. I watched it. A lot.

Apollo 13 probably should've made my list, considering how much I like to watch it (and yeah, I totally forgot South Park as well. Probably because I don't really watch the show any more, even though I love the movie). Good that Trainspotting showed up, that one's a keeper.

I know that I should've included Mononoke, but when it comes to Ghibli I tend to stick closer to the Spirited Away/How's Moving Castle side of things, so wrong decade there.

And am I the only one that doesn't like American Beauty? Kevin Spacey's great performance aside, it just struck me as so incredibly hollow and smug that I sorta wanted to punch the poster by the end of it.

This is the first one so far that I completely forgot about, but wish I hadn't. Probably Ron Howard's best movie.

I like the movie, but I find a lot of people who don't like the movie really find it hollow while those who do often get a lot out of it.  I suppose it's based on what you find in it.  I guess that's the nature of art.

Never seen Trainspotting, so can't comment on that.

Hated American Beauty.

Loved Apollo 13 and it made my long list, but had to cut it from my 25.

This reminds me of the time that Brian Boitano was in the Olympics skating for the gold, he did two sow cows and a triple lutz,
While wearing a blind fold.

So what would Brian Boitano do if he were here today?
I'm sure he'd kick an ass or two, that's what Brian Boitano'd do!!!

Or how 'bout that time he was in the Alps, fighting Grizzly Bears. He used his magical fire breath and saved the maidens fair.

Trivia fact! Madonna - who is the main topic of the opening conversation - really liked the film but refuted Quentin Tarantino's interpretation of her song 'Like a Virgin'. She gave him a copy of her 'Erotica' album, signed "To Quentin. It's not about dick, it's about love. Madonna."
