    Shrek-Wonderful, fun tweaking of fairy tale stories.
    Also, thank you for the compliment, Dome, about my anime pick. I like to let people know about great anime to sample since anime is a massively underappreciated art form here in the US. Have any of you gotten to see either of the Vampire Hunter D movies?

    List updated.
    Rob,
    Mulholland Dr. & Memento were already thirded in so you still have 2 more thirds to use.
    I've seen the original about 10 years ago & I remember liking it. As for Bloodlust unfortunately all my local Hollywood Videos don't carry it and neither does Netflix. [​IMG] I'll probably have to sell my soul & go into the local Ballbuster just to get a chance to rent it. [​IMG]
    I'm not an Anime expert but like other genre's that I'm interested in I've sampled quite a bit over the years. From what I've seen my top 5 favorite/best Anime would be :Cowboy Bebop, Macross Plus, Rurouni Kenshin: Trust & Betrayal, Ghost in the Shell & Akira.
