    Long time follower, first time commenter…Hehe Great list guys, Thx for the shoutout Gidgit, glad Amadeus was your #1 and Young Guns got a nice honorable mention. Forgot about Mask, great movie, i just can’t watch it too often, i’ll blow my tissue budget. 🙂 Take care you two, keep up the great work.

    Excellent lists for both….and I’ve never even heard of WHITE MISCHIEF, going to definitely check it out sometime as it has one of my favorite composers (George Fenton) and my all-time favorite cinematographer Roger Deakins. Also, speaking of Cinematography, Peter Biziou DID in fact win the Oscar for MISSISSIPPI BURNING, the only Oscar it won…and I wouldn’t have voted for it over RAIN MAN, but that’s just me.

    When I sent in my three choices (STAR 80, SID & NANCY and BORN ON THE FOURTH OF JULY), I completely forgot about MOMMIE DEAREST, love that movie and looking forward to the podcast of that movie whenever you decide to do it.
