Die Hard, but it's difficult not to be tempted by The Land Before Time.
I'm like Cold Stone: you either like me, love me, or gotta have me.

I thought it was great, but as it is in the same year as Grave of the Fireflies, I can't vote for it. A Fish called Wanda and Die Hard are really tempting choices as well. I plan on watching A Short Film about Love on Sunday, and Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown is a priority on the "to do" list as well (if only I could find it).
