    The Princess Bride is special, alright. Off the top of my head I'd add honorable mention, in no even faintly sensible order and for various unrelated reasons, to Jurassic Park, Ghandi, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Secondhand Lions, Bullit, The Graduate, The Blues Brothers, The Verdict, Cool Hand Luke, In the Heat of the Night, and of course the original Star Wars.

    I'm a decade younger, but I really can't look at mood grading anymore, or listen to lens-flares being sound designed, or suffer camera moves that defy the laws of physics. Every now and then a gem can pop up though and Television Drama is vastly superior to anything I grew up with.

    As a side note on Reservoir Dogs, most of you will not have seen the much more accomplished City on Fire, a 1987 Hong Kong crime film written, produced and directed by Ringo Lam,Tarantino's 1992 film Reservoir Dogs rips off several of its key plot elements and scenes, most notably the famous Mexican standoff, also the film has the kind of raw energy and excitement that Tarantino could never match in a million years

    I like the cgi very much.

    Been watching "The Expanse" (on episode 7 so far) and really enjoying it. Best sci-fi series I have seen in a while......

    I really love this show.
    I totally loved the part when odo transforms into a different shape, while assuming a liquid mass in between.
    I love lightwave !!!
