    yes, true. It should tie with 12 Monkeys and Jacob's Ladder at the top, with special mention of the 9th Gate. That's what bears would call fair.

    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)

    bears are back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    If it's an image you found online, and isn't spam, right click on image, choose copy location.
    In you post, click on insert image icon and past url, hit ok or yes. This works for PC and android.
    No idea about Apple, but it has to be similar.

    It's just from a gif site. I will have to try that.



    EDIT: That worked! Thanks. The actual links didn't seem to work before for some reason.

    Keep in mind anything from Giphy won't work like that, or it's temperamental at least. You usually have to click to think to take you to the giphy website and copy and paste the link they supply on the page.

    Both The Ice Storm and Quiz Show are tied for last but deserve to be much higher.

    Two highly underrated films eliminated here. For my money, much better than the bottom two that moved on.

    The Ice Storm is an excellent movie. Quiz Show has been a film that I've been meaning to watch for ages. I'm pretty sure I've seen it streaming somewhere, so I'll have to check it out soon.

    I've had Ice Storm for a while, but haven't seen it yet. I don't own Quiz Show, but I will track it down. Not a huge fan of Robert Redford directed films.

    Hearts are tough, she said, most times hearts don't break, and I'm sure that's right . . . but what about then? What about who we were then? What about hearts in Atlantis?
