    The polls you put up today are tough. There are several I am going to have to think about.

    Yeah I like both of these but ultimately I think American Beauty is a better film overall.

    I was gonna talk trash on American Beauty by posting awards that Braveheart won. Looks like I'm eating crow...

    Braveheart just as so many quotable scenes. That's one of the main criteria I use for how much I like a film.

    I saw and enjoyed American Beauty once, but I haven't felt the need to revisit.
