Other stuff, too.

Though still no Body Snatchers or Dear Diary :(

Not that they're getting any votes.

It would appear that I don't love a single film from 1993. I'm undecided.

I almost added the Nanetti film.  I probably should, since it was a dictator choice.

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

lol, I've seen two too many of Nanni Moretti's films to be conflating his name like that accidentally.

I should start drinking coffee, maybe.

What a great year '93 was.  I remember 93 very well and remember it being an important year for movie in my own life.  There are about ten movies on this list I wanted to vote for, but in the end it was Jurassic Park.  I love the film and it still remains the greatest movie going experience of my life.  It's a legendary story I like to tell and one I'll never forget.

Did you narrowly escape a pack of velociraptors?


A few months ago I would've gone with Dazed & Confused but now I'll be going with Blue.  Although it's still pretty close.

Schindler's List is clearly the better film, but I still had to vote for True Romance.

Groundhog Day, although The Piano, Ninja Scroll and The Fugitive aren't that far behind.
