    No "The Fighter"? I know newer movies tend to get overrated in "Best of" lists, but that was a legitimately great movie.

    Also, I never saw it, but wasn't Cinderella Man regarded as kind of overrated and boring?

    Worthless list.

    I'd rather discuss film's most sensuous kiss of all time.

    What? A movie with Russel Crowe is overrated and boring? Surely you jest.

    Gladiator was a legitimately good movie, but yea, I can't think of anything else I've really loved. That is not a good sign for that big name of an actor.

    The Fighter is a pretty good movie, and I would say that it is better than Rocky IV. I watched Raging Bull for the first time over the summer and thought that it wasn't anything too special.

    I didn't love Raging Bull when I watched it, but I was tired and also dealing with a GF who was really bored with it, so I kind of give it the benefit of the doubt. I intend to go back and watch it again some time.

    Are you trying to show your "softer/feminine" side?

    Are you calling Diggstown soft and feminine? That sir, is an insult to both James Woods and Lou Gossett Jr., and I, for one, won't stand for it!

    I'll have you know that I was named after the greatest Offensive Lineman in Green Bay Packer history, Chad Clifton. And neither I, nor my namesake are ones to suffer fools. And you sir, are very very foolish to call the character of a fine film like Diggstown into question. Very foolish indeed.

    Rocky III is classic. Actually I think my least favorite Rocky (after the one that shall not be named) is actually "Rocky". I understand it's probably the best actual piece of cinema in the series, but from a pure "hey insert movie here is on cable" enjoyment standpoint, it's my least favorite.
