Thank you!!

I was kidding.
I actually consider a lot of movies to be life-changing! I take them to my heart and they melt into my personality.

I've been meaning to see Aliens of the Deep.   I wonder if anyone has nominated it for documentary yet?

I'm surprised FLY hasn't nominated Tim Burton, so I will.  Sweeney Todd, Big Fish, and Corpse Bride might be enough to get on the lower part of my list.

Edit: Also Thomas McCarthy.

Someone better make it clear they are serious about nominating Malick or Cameron before I add it. Bondo does not take kindly to non-serious nominations because this stuff takes time to update.  ;)

Yeah, I figured his name would come up naturally, so I'm glad you brought it up.

Anyway, Satoshi Kon, especially if we include Paranoia Agent as well.

Heck, I'll seriously nominate Malick seeing as his one film is possibly my favorite film of the decade.

Kon has been nominated, and rightfully so I'd say (though he probably won't get a vote from me...remember, we only get ten votes)...but no, I would not generally consider a TV show as relevant to this discussion...not that we can stop anyone from including that into their calculation.

Spike Jonze? Adaptation and Where the Wild Things Are.... can i get a witness?

He was gonna be my first choice the moment I got into this thread...which happens to be now.
