1985: Clue (This is that movie that I can put on at any time, smile, laugh, feel like a kid again. Nearly went with The Goonies for identical reasons)1986: Labyrinth (Tough decision. Almost wanted to go with Big Trouble in Little China.)1987: Moonstruck (Tough year. I love Moonstuck more than A Nightmare on Elm St. 3.)1988 - Who Frame Roger Rabbit (Loved it as a kid, love it now. A very odd part of me wanted to say Space Mutiny instead.)1989 - National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation (Should be The Little Mermaid for jumpstarting The Disney Renaissance but, well, fuck it! Was almost Heathers.)1990 - Dick Tracy (I'm a fool for good production design.)1991: Beauty and the Beast (Nearly no contest.)1992: Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me (I had trouble coming up with something for 1992 so... Twin Peaks.)1993: Addams Family Values (Almost purely for Christina Ricci)1994: Pulp Fiction (Interesting fact: Forrest Gump won best picture that year. I know, right? What the hell?)1995: Showgirls (It's favorite movies, not best movies. Shut up, that's why! Otherwise, it would probably be Waiting to Exhale.)1996: Scream (In a lot of ways, if I had never seen Scream, I would not be the person I am today. On of a handful of movies I can quote perfectly.)1997: Jackie Brown (Because Pam Grier kicking ass is never not fun.)1998: Pleasantville (Relevant and well acted.)1999: American Beauty (Look, I know it's the bad answer but it's still just such a well put together piece of cinema for me.)2000: The Emperor's New Groove (In a lot of ways, I just love it a ton. It may have been the end of the Disney Renaissance but still a classic.)2001: Ocean's 11 (I like a good heist movie. The style and editing of this one elevate it.)2002: Chicago (Interesting fact: I saw Chicago in the theater like 8 times.)2003: Kill Bill Vol.1 (Going in, I did not intend this thing to have so much Tarantino on it.)2004: Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (Odd thing: The Lord of the Rings films are better but there was something I loved more every year.)2005: Brokeback Mountain (Fuck Crash.)2006 Pan's Labyrinth (Once again, I'm a fool for good set design.)2007: Hot Fuzz (One of those movies2008: The Dark Knight (Still probably the best Superhero movie of all time.)2009: Inglourious Basterds (Oh. More Tarantino.)2010: Inception (One of those movies I can't watch idly. Always gets all my attention.)2011: The Muppets (I'm a Muppet of a Man.)2012: The Hunger Games (I wanted to go with The Cabin in the Woods but I had to ask what movie I've seen the most times or I would just throw on.)2013: Pacific Rim (I really ran on empty for 2013.)2014: Captain America: The Winter Soldier (I was torn between this and Guardians of the Galaxy. Decided just on which one I'd rather watch for the heck of it.)2015: Mad Max: Fury Road (Outside of being beautiful to look at, the editing, cinematography, writing, and acting is phenomenal.)2016: Zootopia (I'm saying this now because most of the films released at the end of the year are things I have not seen yet. Will update later.)
Beastly: You guys have Twilight taking up your YA adaptation bag for the next two years but one to consider when you get done is Beastly. It's the Beauty and the Beast adaptation where The Beast is a vapid and rich high schooler who gets transformed by one of the Olsen Twins into a tattooed, bald, slightly scarred, and rich home schooled student. It also has Neil Patrick Harris as the guy's blind tutor who constantly makes bad jokes about being blind. There are also mobsters at some point for whatever reason. Dinocroc vs Supergator: Just for this scene that is, in my opinion, on the same level of The Flower Shop in The Room. The rest of the movie is stupid humans suck at fighting a Dinocroc and a Supergator. So, maybe a quarter step above Mega-Shark vs Giant Octopus.

Duckula and Danger Mouse were both shown on the Nickelodeon cable channel in the early 90s so I've seen the odd episode of those. So, not totally familiar with British Saturday Morning fare. So yeah, would totally be interested in that sometime.
Agreed. I will admit though, I'm having fun seeing how much more crazy Betty's mom can get. The point a couple of weeks ago when she started laughing about the idea of her husband committing murder was classic. It has occurred to me though: Jughead is actually more of a suspect than I had thought. I doubt that the entire first season is about how Jughead got away with murder (though that would be fun) but it would be interesting.
Scooby-Doo and the Ghoul School: It was on this morning and there was nothing better on. To put it lightly, it kinda sucks but then, what else was I expecting? Then there was a moment that made me think. So, the basic premise is that Scooby, Shaggy, and Scrappy get hired to be gym teachers at a school for the daughters of monsters. However, then you stop to think about some of them. We have the daughter of a Ghost, the daughter of The Mummy, and the daughter of Frankenstein's Monster. Assuming the undead don't get older, we're talking about a bunch of dead kids that are never getting any older. It's kind of weird. Iron Man 2: The first one was a pretty decent film. The sequel is where some of the bad parts of the Marvel Cinematic Universe started coming into play. Not even getting into wasting Mickey Rourke, the movie grinds to a halt on a couple of occasions for world building where none was necessary other than to further other movies.
