So many waves, you got seasick?

I've seen frighteningly few of EITHER list of movies. I swear, once upon a time I used to go to the movies fairly often, but you wouldn't know it from these lists. Huh.

And the first list IS a good list! Ok, so some of them really don't seem like "greatest movies ever", and there a lot of better movies missing, but, still... surprisingly good! *G*

*L*! And here I thought nobody would understand my "waves" comment. *G*
