  1. Fight Club is overrated, nonsensical trash.
  2. Fact checks are welcomed as I believe Hustlers has now become J Lo’s highest grossing live action film, surpassing Maid in Manhattan. She has some animated films with higher grosses; but Hustlers is now in pole position for her live action flicks.
  3. Downton Abbey will need to pick up the pace if it wants to reach $100M. It looks like it might fall a mill or two short unless Universal and Focus have some tricks up their sleeve.
  4. Who is going to step up and volunteer to tackle 2009? One of the Cameron or Harry Potter fans, perhaps? There were so many good movies in 2009 worth discussing again including a stellar remake, a riotous comedy, an uplifting animated flick and Colin Firth’s best performance ever.
  5. If the film is indeed a modern take on the genre, the detective should post the killer’s identity to social media while simultaneously gathering all the suspects.
  6. It is clear from the TIFF premiere that James Bond needs to break new ground with Evans playing a romantic interest for Craig’s Bond in the next movie. I wonder how Chris likes his martinis.
  7. My list: 1. Alien 2. The Exorcist 3. Star Wars 4. Blazing Saddles 5. Monty Python and the Holy Grail 6. Close Encounters of the Third Kind 7. Jaws 8. Superman 9. Nashville 10. Halloween 11. Monty Python’s Life of Brian 12. The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 13. The Godfather Part II 14. Network 15. Dog Day Afternoon 16. One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest 17. I Spit on Your Grave 18. National Lampoon’s Animal House 19. Apocalypse Now 20. The Rocky Horror Picture Show 21. Patton 22. Midnight Express 23. Robin Hood (Disney) 24. The Spy Who Loved Me 25. All the President’s Men
  8. She started in television before transitioning to movies and then to music. Also, calling Jeremy Renner a music star is absurd given his complete lack of success in that medium. Releasing a song or an album does not make you a music star.
  9. 1994 had a few good movies, some mediocre ones and several that were just bad. Here’s my list which has been submitted to Baumer and Grim. 1. True Lies 2. Speed 3. The Lion King 4. Pulp Fiction 5. Serial Mom 6. Stargate 7. Maverick 8. Four Weddings and a Funeral 9. Clerks 10. The Professional 11. Reality Bites 12. Forrest Gump 13. The Shawshank Redemption 14. Dumb and Dumber 15. Heavenly Creatures 16. Disclosure 17. The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert 18. Legends of the Fall 19. Ace Ventura: Pet Detective 20. Clear and Present Danger 21. Interview with the Vampire 22. With Honors 23. Natural Born Killers 24. Threesome 25. The Naked Gun 33 1/3: The Final Insult
  10. Hamilton and Schwarzenegger kicking ass together is more than enough to convince me to buy a ticket for the first Thursday night showing. I have no qualms erasing memories of the last three films if that will make this film better. I simply want to be entertained and this film looks to be delivering that.
  11. I probably should have ranked it higher myself given how Deadpool 2 paid a wonderful homage to the film. The film has certainly earned its place among cinematic history.
  12. Will anyone be running a 2009 countdown, given how we’ve had a 1999 countdown and we’re still submitting lists for this 1989 countdown?
