    Barkley could have continued if there were no 3 KD rule in effect, Benn was a dirty mother****er and probably should have been DQ'd, but there was a fairly good chance Benn would have won by legit stoppage anyway.

    Just realized your '66 is missing Andrei Rublev, Sword of Doom, The Battle of Algiers, and Closely Watched Trains. What gives? I'd put Rublev in a top 10 all time, and the others are just badass.

    I haven't made it all the way through Andrei Rublev, I fell asleep.:oops: Although I was somewhat depressed at the time (I saw it right after Bush was re-elected:lol:), and that affected my enjoyment of it. I've been meaning on getting around to it. I remember nothing about Closely Watched Trains, and I haven't seen the other two, but I own them.

    How do y'all find the time to watch so many movies LOL it is impressive. I don't think I have seen ten movies in the last five years. I don't have the time nor the attention span to sit down and relax to watch a movie...

    Do any of ye use that rate your music site? They have a section for rating movies too, probably a neat way of tracking what you've watched and how you rate it. I used to use it for rating albums when I was into Hip Hop.

    I saw quite a few of these when I was younger, during summer breaks I'd sit up all night doing marathons of 3 and 4 films, and still occasionally even into my 20's when I'd get a chance to binge watch (unlike kids now days with TV shows), I'd pack them all into one or two nights a week, as for right now.... I might get in 100 films a year now days, if I'm lucky. Which is like 2 a week, 3 if I go all out. I've gotten lazy and rusty. Granted that's probably twice as many as most people.:lol:
