    RIP Gazelle

    She was a regular in 2006 when I started posting.

    Greatest 90's Movies - Semi Final A

    LA Confidential. Call me old fashioned but I like a film’s main protagonist to be a sympathetic character that I can root for. Neither Pulp Fiction nor Goodfellas has that, which is why despite their technical brilliance they both leave me cold. The winner will walk the final of course.

    Greatest 90s Movie Ever - Group B

    Ditto. Exhilarating, thought provoking, ground breaking. And all the more exciting as it wasn’t given a massive publicity buildup, it almost snuck in under the radar. All the hype that summer was about the Phantom Menace.

    Greatest 90s Movie Ever - Group A

    Same. Still voted for it here though, along with Reservoir Dogs - certainly not the strongest group we’ll see in this competition. Goodfellas nailed on to win the whole thing imo.

    Greatest 90s Film - Nominations

    Are we talking about A Matter of Life and Death? If so that’s a completely different premise. Niven’s character all along understands that he was supposed to have died, and the film is all about how he and others respond to it. In Jacob’s Ladder we don’t find out what’s happened until the very end.
  11. It’s not Star Wars with more gore, it’s got great performances and a really strong character-driven story. Weaver was nominated for an Oscar.
  12. Cheers, never occurred to me to try that.
  13. How do you see who’s voted for each option in a poll? Never been able to work it out since the forum was last upgraded.

    Rep for Pi. Was never going to make my top ten but I love that film.
