Metroid just edges out The Legend of Zelda.

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

The Fly is probably my favorite from this year, ahead of Blue Velvet, Ferris Bueller and Hannah and her Sisters.

Please don't vote for Platoon. It's awful.

If Jean De Florette and Manon des Sources were a single vote I might have gone for that.

I like how you think.

Not sure what to vote for, I'll have to ponder this one for a bit.

I had the opposite reaction. I actually don't think this was a great year. I went with The Fly.
-Le Chiffre: You changed your shirt, Mr Bond. I hope our little game isn't causing you to perspire.

-James Bond: A little. But I won't consider myself to be in trouble until I start weeping blood.
