... Constantine ... ?

There's quite a few people I know who love it, particularly it's dark fantasy take on the world. I've never seen it, but over the years I think it's picked up a good number of boosters to oppose the numerous detractors when the film first came out.

This and this :)

It's just totally different and wild. And it looks fantastic! Lots of fun.

And yeah, Open Range will make the list :)

;D

I'm a sucker for wildly imaginative films like that. Labyrinth and Hitchhiker's Guide would fall in that category too, for me. :)

i keep hearing good things about this one, need to check it.  i had wondered if this one should be eligible for the 80s bracket
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.

I would have nominated it, but for some reason I thought it was already on the list.  :o

Either way, I think you'd find it interesting at the very least. Just looking at it from a director's perspective, the same man responsible for the claustrophobic thriller Das Boot was the director of The NeverEnding Story.

Likewise. Hmm, maybe it doesn't qualify as an American production anyways.
