There's nothing difficult or challenging about it... and frankly, seeing the second choice is enlightening in that it helps to demonstrate "the range".

My 1960's post has a single pick, and it's only one for each year.

I've had to google a lot of picks from a lot of posters and have added a bunch of new finds to my 'must see' list. That's one of the most enjoyable things about these threads.

I'm one of those that hate Punch-Drunk Love. But you have Bleu on your list so you get a :thumbsup: from me.

It did make me laugh that you have Heat on your list - just because it seems like such a non-John Cole type of movie. I would never have guessed that one for you.

They actually showed a snippet in a promo. This is the 2nd time they've shown this in the last 12 months.

Andy should have picked at least one movie with a Resurrection theme. Back from the dead. Been a bit more than three days but speaking for myself; I forgive you. Can't speak for others and wouldn't dare to. There are all still a surly bunch of lads. Glad to see you In The Loop again, Andy.
