    To whoever seconded Withnail and I, I think you! I was scared it wouldn't get in me thinking of it so late.



    Nomination #18 - Ragtime (1981)
    Directed by Milos Forman


    I wish I could second a movie, but I've only seen two on that list, and one is my nomination. And I don't remember The Fox and the Hound at all.

    The only other movie I've seen is Revenge of the Nerds and I was like 6 when I last watched it. And I think it was the sequel I saw actually haha

    Outside of genre films, the 80s are the decade I'm least versed in from the 70s-2010s.

    I'll second The Land Before Time. It is too cute for adults but decades later it is still great to little kids (or at least for my son it was.)
