  1. Dandy Cody is if Battle Liger and Kishin Liger has a baby. The ultimate form of Cody.
  2. I guess the discussion on what works in a film and various topics of film theory is something that could have been done if you (or anybody) made a thread for it. I know @caley and I had a good convo on a film we disagreed with in one of the pimping threads. It all came about because he quoted me and made an excellent post and I was inspired to do my best to respond with my thoughts. The beauty of these types of projects is the openness of conversation allowed. Everyone was pretty easy going with this. However, if you were to make a thread on your thoughts on film, there are a lot of great post
  3. You and I both know that’s what the “H” stands for...
  4. I think 2011 was a great year in film. My prediction is it will have a strong showing.

  7. It’s tough doing a List right after a year/ decade happens. There are still a lot of movies I’m sure I’d love from 2017-2019 that I didn’t get to yet. I’m sure the 90’s lists were easier with how much time has passed to have what you would like easier to pick out and what you would dislike filtered out. But the fun of it is seeing what others liked and maybe be pointed out something I missed. Going the rush watching method works for some, but I like to space out my viewings so I don’t mesh together the experiences. 1st movie I watch is great and the second one is good, I might be har
  8. I’m a stinker that sent in a revision. I left off a couple of zingers. If it’s a hassle or I’m late than no worries.
  9. Very high on my list. I was nervous going in but it exceeded my expectations and I found it to be an layered experience. EDIT: to each their own, my friends! I enjoyed the pacing of it but totally see why people dislike it for various reasons. I’ll try and make a post once ballots are posted with spoiler tags as a “in defense of” type thread. Similar to what I did for Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. I’m not a Scorsese guy. I enjoyed The Irishman, watched it with my wife while drinking Laphroaig and Disaronno. Coming to think of it, I poured myself 5 or so of those so maybe I was in the
  10. @Curt McGirt, that match was the day after the epic Sangre Chicano vs MS-1.
