Oh great... Another year where I've only seen a few films recently... Titanic, As Good As It Gets, Chasing Amy and Jackie Brown are personal favorites of mine.

Yet again, I have some renting to do with Netflix...

Zingy, completely off topic but...

I would have taken a recommendation if you watched all of The Phantom of the Opera. :razz:

But, if you watch one or all of these 3 I would recommend... (Moulin Rouge!, Princess Mononoke and/or Memento) you can torture me with any one, two or three movies you'd think I wouldn't like but you loved.

Sound good? :razz:

I liked it quite a bit. Some parts are cheesy, but overall the movie is very creepy and unsettling.

Zing, make Libs see Mortal Kombat: Annihilation. I know you don't like it (neither do I9, but it'd be fun to have someone with Libs' taste in movies sitting through that flick :lol:

Well, in all fairness, I've taken a crapload of recommendations (some great, some good, some bad), but no one has taken mine.

I've taken a lot from you, too, so you already owe me. :wink:

But, I'll watch Memento.

In the next couple of days, I'll make the lists for all other years. Those take a bit longer than I thought.

If that's fair, does that mean that you'll be seeing 30 recommendations from me?

Whoever takes Donnie Darko as a recommendation from me and sees it, can recommend me any movie and I'll see it.

I'd settle for you seeing Fantastic Four on opening weekend, because I'll probably will have seen over 50 of your recommendations by then. That's a better deal than anybody else would be willing to make. Zingy should be ashamed for even suggesting one for one. [-X
