    My personal favorite teen movie of this year. An adaptation of The Taming Of The Shrew, this movie instantly catapulted Heath Ledger into the mainstream and has a very talented young cast, each of whom went on to bigger things and one of whom is a cult leader in Hollywood now.

     

    It also has the iconic Heath Ledger singing scene

     

     

     

    Oh come on! This is a fucking top 10 movie! Bloody philistines.

    At the height of his starpower, Tom Cruise took an almost 2 year break to star in this movie because he wanted to work with Kubrick. The movie is, at its heart, a movie about a marriage and starred the then real life married couple Cruise and Kidman and in many ways mirrored their actual marriage (maybe minus the sex cults?)

     

    Kubrick passed away before the movie was released, which is probably why WB was able to edit it down to get an R rating instead of the NC-17 it was filmed as.

    I think the sex cults are really part of Hollywood and this was Kubrick exposing them, just like he exposed the fake moon landing in The Shining.  :ph34r:

    Oh come on B, he was hired to fake it, but you know he forced them to film on location for authenticity.

    Reese Witherspoon's most iconic character (yes, even more than Elle Woods). Tracy Flick is that one student everyone hated in class for being so damn good at everything. This movie plays really well even now as it can be interpreted in a new light compared to 1999. If you haven't seen it yet, I would recommend it a lot.

    Paul Thomas Anderson's anthology which... ok, I don't exactly know what the movie is about. Tom Cruise is great in it though.
