    I agree this year was wobbly too. In fact... Tales from the Hood was better than The Night Flier, so until I see Cube, I'm ready to say 1997 was the weakest year of the decade.

    I really liked Cube when I saw it (in 1997), but haven't seen it since. I have a sneaking suspicion it's one of those films that hasn't aged well. But in my memory it was great, so I voted for it.

    Wow, not a great year at all. I need to see Cube, Campfire Tales, and Event Horizon, but the only one on that list that I think is okay is Scream 2.

    I've actually owned it for a few years now on Blu, just haven't got around to watching it. I will for sure check it out soon though as I have heard many good things.
