2. Brick - A fabulous spin on Noir genre set in a modern high school.
3. Blade Runner - Cuz, well, it's Blade Runner. And version…"
"I would never promote racism but history should not be censored. Leni Riefenstahl's Triumph of the Will is also both historically and cinematically important. As heinous and evil as these film are they should be known and critically studied…"
"I have way too many movies, but I will throw one in there that should have been on the 100 movies list on the blog. Sideways with Paul Giamatti and Thomas Hayden Church is a personal favorite of mine. Giamatti plays a wine enthusiast who's life…"
"I haven't seen a lot of the classics of film history (Citizen Kane, The Shining, Psycho, etc.), so my scope is limited. But I will give you what are for now my top ten films to not miss. In no particular order...
1. The Lord of the Rings…"
"Way, way back in the 1960's the one local "Independent" TV stationin my are ran many, many films. (Sometimes they ran the same film many, many times.)

Thanks for that great post! I want people to flesh out more fuller answers so I keep posting hypothetical questions up. Please start discussions. I have fun reading responses, but I'm the only one starting em. Funny you should mention friends who haven't been saved longer than two years. I was saved a year ago in March or April. Look forward to more of your comments.
"Yeah, I have not been able to find that footage. But just like the "Counter Protestors" who brought sticks with them. Not all counter protestors brought sticks to start some shit.After covering a few protests/marches, you can kind of look…"
"That kind of irks me a little too. All we are seeing of the footage the night before is from the Vice piece, which you have to admit is quite disturbing, but I'm quite sure that there had to be some people there who had no association with that…"
