I'm working from 3-D Digital backwards to the invention of celluloid, and sub-dividing by any film in which one of the 7 main characters is known only by one name. My wall is a giant equation but it's coming together!

I have - in the course of my spider-graphing and film family-tree generating (within a giant genre venn-diagram) - realised that the reason Helen likes KK 1, 2 and 3 so much, is because she hates 2-time Oscar winning actress Hilary Swank with a vengeance. I won't go into details because you couldn't possibly understand. But it has everything to do with her ex-husband Chad Lowe (Swank's - not Helen's).

I've said too much.

Goddamit! What genre is Big Trouble in Little China?!

Put it in western and hopefully Paul won't notice.I magine gremlins winning the western category. That would be great.

A gun slinging Stripe doing a showdown at high noon would be pretty cool.

'The Empire Strikes Back':

Action - Yes
Adventure - Yes
Sc-Fi - Yes
Fantasy - Yes
Family - Yes

IT CAN'T WIN THEM ALL! And even if I give it to one or two categories, where would that leave other great movies which should be top of their lists?!!!

I'M GOING TO START AGAIN ALLOCATING EACH MOVIE TO 2.5 CATEGORIES *ONLY*!

First chance I'd got to start compiling my lists....I've opted to use each movie only once....kinda like you have to decide which one catagory each movie truely belongs in.

Though considering Gremlins exclusion in the top 20, I did think about listing this movie for everthing....so....15 categories @ 5 votes each....that's......75 Gremlins!!!! A powerful message to send me thinks. Phew....thankful that I had a calculator handy!

A few issues:

* Struggling with musicals....although some of my favorite movies are listed in IMBD as "Music", I don't think that Flashdance, Purple Rain or Footloose qualify...so I'm excluding them.

* Westerns were tough as there really arn't too many to choose from.

* Distinguishing Sci Fi, Fantasy, and Adventure is proving a bit of a challenge.

A bit of a task, but still having fun....MY list will go in.

logan and willy....I kinda feel like you two could be in the Pineapple Express sequel....silly buggers!!! [Eek!] [Eek!]

You cant put it into fantasy Logan - fantasy is for movies like princess bride, willow, legend - princess and castles and knights.

Not action either - thats for die hard, lethal weapon and 48 hrs

adventure - you cant group it with goonies, and and umm and arr ahh oooother movies like the goonies.

Surely its gotta go into sci fi and maybe family at a push


what about the Gate - horror?? lost boys - horror?
