I'm still thinking I should have only voted for films made before 1970.

I should have voted for only films that made more than 100 million to balance out roujin, pix, etc  ;D


Although I don't think I actually had any films that made more than 100 million on my list.

There are several films on these new lists that really could have made mine as well.
-Le Chiffre: You changed your shirt, Mr Bond. I hope our little game isn't causing you to perspire.

-James Bond: A little. But I won't consider myself to be in trouble until I start weeping blood.
