    The Shining

    Grasping for memories, searching for landmarks in fields once familiar

    He canít recognise now, the hedgerows are gone, the blackbirds have flown, silencing song

    This wasteland belongs to a murder of crows

    Overboard has the great Kurt Russell! The only way it could have gotten better was if Goldie Hawn was the Duke of NY.

    This is still tied... I'd very much like to avoid a tiebreaker here since Round 2 is supposed to start on Monday!

    If this closes with a tie, I may set the tiebreaker to three days instead of the usual four, so it closes on Monday and we don't get potentially delayed.

    Sorry mae, I enjoyed Overboard more than Flashdance.
    Kurt Russell has always been a celebrity crush of mine.
    It was also quite a funny movie.
