Weird that KoC is your favourite Scorsese.

Let's say that I have a soft spot for comedians that fail. :D

The rule actually is good as it calls for a more balanced and varied list.
I might remember it all differently tomorrow.

Yeah, but then how accurate is it if all those other Herzog movies you love are missing? I must have four PTA movies on my list and I would never delete them just to include something by Eastwood or whomever. If you want representation, make better movies.

I prioritize diversity over accuracy. It is research but not science. PTA doesn't make the cut, btw. ;)

Great, it is that time of the year again. I have to review my entire list and update it and stuff, which I hate doing. I mean, I have to pit movies against each other and figure out which ones I like best and do that a hundred times over and then start again because an objective ranking impossible! You people are doing this to me! I hope you're happy...

Honestly, part of me thinks I should just pack the list with movies I know Martin will hate, just to annoy him... ;D
