Sprinter's List

Post by Sinister » Mon Dec 20, 2010 3:34 am

Many would call it a love letter to cinema. Others would go as far as saying
it's just a piece of shit. Yes, but what an iconic piece of shit. Some, who know me better,
will recognize that this list is stolen from a film magazine I read back when I was a kid.
Me, I'd say it's my Christmas present to all of you, knowing how well loved most
of the films in this list are. You're all right but you're all wrong.
I recklessly sprint towards the New Year with hope and anticipation.

Image
I run and run and movie scenes follow me.
Will you?

That's from the 1997 Special Edition.
