    No more meetings, no more discussions, no more Sollozo tricks.

    Well obviously I'm going to vote for Justin, but to quantify a bit, he has 8 films on his list I love, including 5 of my top 100, 4 of my top 25 and 2 of my top 10.

    George's list is plenty offensive, and it clearly bespeaks a warped sensibility. Justin's is just plain looney. My only question is why either of them didn't include Citizen Kane, Casablanca and Schindler's List. Hmmm, tough choice....

    I finally got around to watching The Bride of Frankenstein. It was kind of funny in a cheesy sort of way. Otherwise, it makes me appreciate the whole blind man scene in Young Frankenstein even more. [​IMG]

    Well, I can't speak for Justin, but I didn't include them because I don't hate these films, I love them. Both Casablanca and Kane are in my top 5. (see my sig)

    tough call here. It's like voting on Cheech vs. Chong as the bigger pot-head. [​IMG]

    I've gotta go with Bill who must be high on weed as he didn't have the sense to stay away from The Two Towers. [​IMG]


    I'm guessing he'll toke up on a big bong while he's standing in line for Return of the King come December. [​IMG]

    Wow, these are two really big crack smokers. Luke, I guess.
