Can't wait to take a crack at this when I get home tonight. Neil, on some level I think we might be the same person.

Unless, of course, you like ketchup on hot dogs (or spell it catsup for that matter).

Are you asking me to post a revised AFI list with only the ones i have seen?
Or what?
My concern would be narrowing the scope of the thread.
Of course it may be that only you & i are interested.
If that is the case we could do this via email
& let the thread die a natural death. The last
thing i want is to clog up the forum.

No chance of that on my part. Most of the ones i count as not having seen i saw
enough minutes (usually aroundd 1 1/2) to know not to bother with. The rest i'm
scandalously prejudiced against. So there. As far as how many do i actually LIKE?

You really squelched my groove, Neil!

Not sure I can hold it against you, though! Wisdom and all that.

If my list expanded from 20 movies to 30 then Chinatown would, indeed, be on all three of our "remixes"
