    As far as I'm concerned, the only movies that don't belong on that list are Titanic and Forrest Gump. Maybe it's an American thing, but I thought they were both great flicks. [​IMG]

    How do they define "blockbuster"? It can't be by box office success, because some of those movies bombed (Hudson Hawk, Avengers and Last Action Hero are obvious examples).

    The Last Action Hero doesn't deserve to be on there as it was bloody funny. Almost as much as True Lies. [​IMG]
    Bit of an odd list really but I would have put Batman Forever on there too, frankly.

    I disagree with just about every film on that list with the exception of a few.
    TITANIC!?!? Come on.

    Disagree with ID, Forrest Gump, Twister, and TPM being on there. What's missing is Blair Witch and Blair Witch 2.
