Great list. Very glad to see Tarantino as number 1. That's my favorite director as well. I just baught his Inglorious Basterds today and enjoyed it as much as I did in theatures!! You know your movies man! smile

Thanks!!

I hope you got the Best Buy exclusive Blu-Ray edition of Basterds the hour long "Times" interview with Tarantino was great. I'm realy digging the special features too... the clapper and Hi Sally moments were classic.
I'm such a Tarantino fan. I seen Basterds 11 times in theatres (and it doesn't get old); but I watched it today on blu (of course smile ) and it gets me everytime of how shearly brilliant QT is as a filmmaker. Needless to say I had to watch it again right after. This and Pulp truly are film drugs!! They are just so damn addicting.

11 times in theaters huh? Wow! I could never afford that where I live. LOL. It's like $14 bucks a ticket. It's insane.

And I agree, Pulp Fiction and Inglorious Basterds are both very addicting!
