    Well actually I think that everyone thinks he's joking when he tells them he's a contract killer. But it's one of my favourite movies so I have to agree with you.. :)

    Yeah, DEATH BECOMES HER is a guilty pleasure of mine. Anyone know of a decent DVD release? The R1 is full frame with zero extras :(

    I remember working in a movie theater and the trailer had scenes (I believe Tracey Ullman was involved) that were not in the movie. I mean, it's Robert Z!!! How can there not be a special edition yet?

    Actually, there is a behind the scenes featurette made at the time the movie was in production, and I believe there are some bios and production notes as well. The only reason I got it, though, was because Wal-Mart had it for $9 with two free music downloads from their website. I figured the disc would at the very least hold me over until a nice SE finally comes out.

    I went with American Psycho, although this was one of the toughest choices I ever had to make. Christian Bale was made to play Bateman and the movie wouldn't be the masterpiece it is without him.
    I was a tad disappointed that The Addams Family wasn't on there. Others I like on the list are: Serial Mom, Gremlins and Cable Guy

    Really? Are the scenes with Tracy Ullman (looks like she's a bartender in the clip) shown in the featurette? I also seem to recall mention that Bruce Willis' character might still be alive in an alternate scene.

    I voted for Very Bad Things, because it doesn't fuck around. It is what it is -- funny, dark, and over the top just enough without becoming too obnoxious. Special mention to Scotland, PA and Employee of the Month, which are two great little black comedies you never hear about :evil: . Definately worth rentals if you've never seen them.

    Man Bites Dog. An excellent film that got just treatment by Criterion.
     
  11. I went with the cult classic Eating Raoul, one hell of a funny movie.

    I voted for Dogma. I'm not a really religious person so I really liked this movie. Also another movie that most have probably not heard of is Eulogy. It came out in 2004 or 2005 and it stars Ray Romano and Famke Jensen(if I was staight I sware I'd f'n love her). It's def. one of those easily missed movies that I think a lot of you will like. Go rent it!

    Heathers. Definitely worthy of the Anchor Bay Limited Edition Tin treatment. :cool:

    Dogma came in a very close second.
