Sorting a top 100 while in class. Being suitably drastic.

Compiling a top 100 films list.

edit: looking back at my 2009 list. How younger and more naive I was back then, so intent on putting provocative films on my list. To hell with that. I'm much more comfortable with what I like and not today.

;D That makes me smile.

:)  I know what you mean.  Mine has basically done a SIN curve between the two over the past 15 years.  Mine is going more mainstream this year - For instance, ditching 8 1/2 for The Breakfast Club and Blade Runner for True Grit.  But I'm sure in two years I'll be once again wondering why I allowed such vacuous, secular fare to sneak into my list!

Yay, Ferris!

Blade Runner for True Grit.

Boo, Ferris!

(Quite the ambivalent crowd today.)

If I can manage to avoid the Blade Runner soundtrack for the next 5 days this decision will stick. Otherwise, apologies to the Coens for the tease... :)

I'd love to see the finished product.  Just showed this to the kids.  I'll tell you right now this just changed the entire rest of the week for one of them :)
