Tough year for me, and that's without having seen any of the critical darlings. It's either The Terminator, A Nightmare On Elm Street, The Neverending Story or Ghostbusters for me. I think when all is said and done The Terminator is the best of those films.

Ah, this is too hard.  Paris, Texas made my Top 20 Films list, but so might have Streetwise had I seen it more recently.

Today I'm voting Streetwise.

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

a very difficult year. I've gone with the Terminator, but i feel very guilty about not voting for Ghostbusters.
Plus, the last starfighter deserves some love.
