Blue Velvet, but i haven't done The Fly in ages.  seeing Sherman's March there just skeezes me out - decent film, but the dude is a pill
But I wish the public could, in the midst of its pleasures, see how blatantly it is being spoon-fed, and ask for slightly better dreams.

It's hard to vote against Top Gun, F/X, Star Trek IV, and Highlander.  It's even harder to find something to vote for.  :/

I should really track down The Horse Thief, I guess.

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

You better not be knocking Piranha 2: The Spawning.  Dude made killer fish fly!
