Since I don't feel too strongly about any of them, I'll vote by viewing count. Ghostbusters II

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.

That would have me voting for Lean on Me, I think.  "Mr. Clark! Mr. Clark!"

Mookie over Pvt. Trip.

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

Do the Right Thing

How that got snubbed for Best Picture is beyond criminal.  The same with sex, lies, & videotape, Glory, Drugstore Cowboy, and Crimes and Misdemeanors

CINECAST!ing Driving My Daisy.  I would've ran over her sorry ass.  That movie was CINECAST!in' boring as shit!

It comes down to Right Thing vs. Crimes for me and I think I like Spike a little bit more.

ugh. One of the worst years yet. I can't believe someone voted for Lethal Weapon 2, and that no one else voted for the Dekalog.
