Of course, you'd think this'd be easier since I've only got 16 year to cover.

1995: The Usual Suspects
1996: Trainspotting

OH MY GOSH I can't believe someone else chose THE EMPEROR'S NEW GROOVE for 2000! You are awesome! WE are awesome!

Interesting list. A lot of movies on here that I haven't seen from the others. Love The Usual Suspects. I haven't seen anyone else choose The Truman Show, but that's definitely a very good movie.

I like the Grindhouse pick. I didn't much care for Planet Terror, but I really enjoyed Death Proof. Many people rag on Tarantino about that one, but I thought it was a great B-movie throwback style film and was real entertaining.

The Spongebob movie being included gave me a pretty good chuckle. Noting against it, just seemed kinda random. :)

OMG. You picked the Spongebob Movie. My opinion of you just went up like 10000 percent. Hahaha

Alex: We are the Bosses of the Universe. Copywrited.

JL: Max at AM kind-of chose TUS. And yes, Death Proof is a big bucket of awesome.

Red: You're random.

Robert: As if it weren't entering the infinity digits already!

I enjoyed the subtle statements you made about certain films by putting periods only after select titles. I get what you're going for. :P

Ah, A Life Less Ordinary...such a fucked up ambitious movie...that mostly falls on its face. Still, gotta give Boyle props for trying, and it's kinda worth it for McGregor's song-and-dance number alone. Well, and Delroy Lindo.

It's cool that you included "Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist" -- I liked that one a lot, mostly because I'm kind of in love with Kat Dennings.
