I think Mishima was a 1985 release for anyone who might want to vote for it.  I could be wrong and I currently lack the energy to check imdb to see if I'm right.

Man, this was a fun year for movies.

1. Brazil
2. The Purple Rose of Cairo
3. Back to the Future
4. After Hours
5. Day of the Dead
6. My Beautiful Laundrette
7. The Goonies
8. Fletch
9. Pee Wee's Big Adventure
10. The Breakfast Club

Not seeing Ran is my great shame here.

Mishima: A Life in Four Chapters

But i'll vote for Brazil if it stops Incest to the Future sliding into second.

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

Mishima is pretty great and I encourage everyone else to vote for it.

I'm sticking with Mr. Herman though.

I think if all the films voted for at the moment were not on the list, then Teen Wolf would be in with a real chance!!  8)

Who voted for Out Of Africa?

I'm tired of being the only one here who will admit to being a fan of sweeping romantic dramas.
