1. The Princess Bride
It is odd when one's capacity for compassion is measured not in what he is willing to do by his own time, effort, and property, but what he will force others to do with their own property instead.

I may as well post my updated list here. These are in no particular order:

* Boondock Saints
* The Secret of Nimh
* Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children
* Repo: The Genetic Opera, the movie that the creators of Repo Men pretty much plagarized.
* The Killing Room
* Kingdom of Heaven
* Suicide Kings
* Pitch Black
* Airplane
* Army of Darkness

LOTR was awesome

I don't understand how anyone could think differently
"He who does not know how to put his will into things at least puts a meaning into them: that is, he believes there is a will in them already."

Metaphysics:
"The science.. which deals with the fundamental errors of mankind - but as if they were the fundamental truths."

I don't deny that the LotR movies were good movies, but in my humble opinion they could have been better.

LOTR fellowship i fell asleep

The only thing a really inaccurate movie adaptation does is piss off he fans.

Obviously you didn't pay to much attention to the movies as you don't even know their names.

Lol in a movie you obviously can't gain the depth a book does. In a book you can't gain the visualization that a movie does.

If you have an excellent visualization of an excellent book you have win.

No, I corrected you because you said "TWIN Towers," not "TWO Towers."

At the surface, it seems to be a minor mistake, but you are interchanging two completely different building pairs.

-The TWO Towers are Orthanc and Baradur.
-The TWIN Towers are scrap metal.

I'll be honest and say that I am unable to find fault with anything with Square Enix's name on it. My love of their productions is comparable to Koopin's love of KFC and True2GaGa's love of Lady Gaga. I'm just more private in my 'worship.'
