@baumer Will Chungking Express be eligible for this list? I saw that the film's domestic theatrical release was in 1996. I understand if it's not eligible, but it's my #1 if it is.

I hope it is since it's a 25 yr old film and we've gone with the home foreign release date before with older lists.

IMDB lists it as 1994.  So you're good.

So what will be the number one?

 

Will it be a time to get busy living or get busy dying?

How about some blueberry pie on Zeds chopper?

Or will we all be taking pop quizzes because we're hot shots?

Or will we all realize that we here sitting next to a millionaire on a park bench with some really raggedy shoes?

Or will we be attempting to jump off of a rooftop on horseback?

Just checking this out.  

Since when did Miracle on 34th Street only take $17 million domestically?!?  I'm staggered at that.  

It's understandable.  Why pay to see it when the original which is far superior plays every year on TV multiple times during X-Mas.

I love the original, but I was always under the impression the remake did really well? Box office in 1994 brings back all kinds of stat memories in my head, but this one just escaped me for some reason.  Besides, this is a much loved remake that was really well received.   I just forgot it did such mediocre business, considering it's now a Xmas classic for many (and yes, I'm talking about the 94 one, as well as the original)

It doesn’t hurt to watch them both. I have seen both of them.

lol at The Little Rascals. 

I remember watching it on VHS 1 year later in summer of 95 and enjoying it more then what I just went through. 

 

I wish I knew what I was watching on tv back then.

  I can't even sync my memory with that 1994 weekend box office schedule.    

TLK was previews for Demon Knight Jan 1995, scary scary!, end of the world? on the other side of the wall?

(The sound effects of the T-rexes in Land Before Time 2.  The snake in The Jungle Book and Collateral Damage)  

But it wasn't about scary movies, it was about having to do something else, but I don't remember.

were exciting movies really that hard to make back then?  were they poor or broke or what?  Return of the Jedi from 1983 was still the movie to beat on half the budget, and only one of those came out between 1983 and 1994.  

I think now a days people would be dancing in their seats screaming hallelujah for a Friday the 13th adaptation of a Jason Vorhees video game.  For him to get out there and take care of business again.
