Re: Favorite Movie of the 90's: Opening Round/Group #3

For some strange reason, I remember Edward Scissorhands as being the movie I've seen the most times in a theater. For some reason, every friend I was with for a 3-week period wanted to go see this and I just continued to tag along.

TRESPASS in da house!!!! All right, the only decent film in this round. Too bad it won't make it into the later rounds, thanks to all you Tim Burton/Spielberg/Farrelly Bros./Shawshank/Titanic/American Beauty fans.

Re: Favorite Movie of the 90's: Opening Round/Group #3

I'm shocked that Trespass made it in, then I look and see that people are voting for it?

Looks like my beloved Veronique won't even make it out of the first round. At least Election is a good film.

Correction: thanks to all you GRUMPY OLD MEN fans.

What's wrong with you guys? I'm a grumpy old man and I love TRESPASS, but can't stand grumpy old men films (except for THE WILD BUNCH--now that's a grumpy old men movie for real men).

Re: Favorite Movie of the 90's: Opening Round/Group #3

Matchup #3: Tommy Boy

Matchup #5: Grumpy Old Men - And I do like Trespass

Matchup #7: A Few Good Men

Matchup #9: Edward Scissorhands - Hated it when it first came out, now I really like it.

Let me get this straight, You are too much of a film snob to vote in matchup 5 yet it's okay to vote for Dumb & Dumber & Tommy Boy? TRESPASS RULES!

I wanted to vote for Sleepy Hollow but didn't click on it. It's tied right now to so I apologize for accidentally not clicking on it.
