    I haven't seen it yet. I thought The Boondock Saints had a much larger following than that though. I'm surprised to see it with just 8 votes.

    Eyes Wide Shut is one of the best movies of the decade and of all time, in my humble view.

    Yeah, I will get to it. I'm not sure why, but I remember the trailers not interesting me for whatever reason. I remember when it came out people made a bigger deal about Cruise and Kidman doing sex scenes together than anything else about the film.

    I like Eyes Wide Shut a lot, but it's on the lower end of Kubrick for me. Hard to beat Paths of Glory and Dr. Strangelove!

    Definitely.
    (I am not a fan of Eyes Wide Shut at All; always wondered what people saw there. Hopefully we all, may and others who love it, can have a talk somewhere about it)

    Ask not what bears can do for you, but what you can do for bears. (razz)
    When one is in agreement with bears one is always correct. (mae)

    Clearly, Neal tampered with the results (don't make me beat you up, Neal).
