But not before cussing out and insulting him extensively.  And it's not as though you haven't chided him dozens of times about expanding his own circle of thought/influence before.  

I don't know what you want from the guy.  He talks solely about the movie, you get mad about how he is dodging this point or that and refusing to engage.  He addresses you directly, you get in a froth about condescencion.  I mean, I think he votes like a lunatic too, but at this point I figure Elvis gonna Elvis.

Again, why are we still voting with five top movies remaining? Are we going top three?

Mean Girls not being top ten is surprising. Grease not being booted first as well.


I really dislike Grease.

Mean Girls and Clueless being as low as they are isn't surprising, honestly. These boards skew male and 80s-oriented.

But I'm male and 80's oriented!  I unironically love John Hughs' output, for god's sake!

I know, but you also have taste.

I really tried not to make my dislike of Hughes a constant issue throughout this. But man do I feel out of step with my peers when he comes up.
Reply
Not having anything from Hughes in the top 15 is a bit shocking. Mean Girls is way undervalued and Heathers is way overvalued.

I read the plot summary for "IF ..." on wikipedia and immediately made a guess about the director's personal life.

Went to the wikipedia entry for Lindsay Anderson and my guess was spot-on.

Give the movie a go sometime.  It really goes to some surreal and dark places but always fascinates.

Stanley Kubrick watched it and, by accounts, immediately knew that he wanted Malcolm McDowell for Alex.

Sure, but by now he's probably gotten around to seeing VALLEY GIRL, and how could it possibly hold up at that point?
