I thought I'd play with this, too. It took me more than 30 seconds. Some of the titles, I wasn't sure if I'd seen or not. I figure if I didn't like it enough to remember the name, I might as well not mark it.

And I must ask - where the hell are The Shawshank Redemption (1994) and Raising Arizona (1987) and Forrest Gump (1994)??? Surely they should have beaten out freakin Titanic, Rushmore, and Hoop Dreams.

Hey! You saw Rushmore! Remember, it had Bill Murray in it? I was OK, but actually I was a little disappointed cause I expected more (I don't think its one of the best 100 movies of the past 25 years)

you wish you'd never seen Evil Dead? I'm not sure I can know you anymore. And Schindler's List? Can't you get arrested in Germany for saying that?

I don't wish I'd never seen them. I have never seen them and never plan to see them. "Strikethrough the ones you will never watch..."

I really don't enjoy most horror movies. I like suspense thrillers, but I can't stand gore fests. I just assumed from the title that Evil Dead was in the gore fest category. I don't even have any knowledge of that film.

As for Schindler's List...*shudder* when I was a freshman in college I was forced to watch The Final Solution in my poli-sci class. If you're not familiar with it, it's a very graphic documentary of the Holocaust. I don't feel I need any further education on that subject. I get it. I really really do. I have those images totally burned into my brain and could describe them to you in great detail. I left class crying and was miserable for days. I seriously have no interest in watching anything else about that period in history, even if it might have been uplifting on some level.

I'm still very annoyed with that list for leaving off Shawshank and Gump and Raising Arizona.

And you can't not know me. :-P
