  2. I like Phantom. I have a fondness for Snake Eyes and Raising Cain as well, even if they're not quite working. Bonfire of the Vanities on the other hand...

  3. Haven't seen it in a long time, but not too crazy about that film.

  4. I agree with El BErgo, Carrie should be on there. No, wait; It's your list.

    I don't like The Untouchables for some reason. It seems contrived, the villains are too evil for no reason, other than to make us hate them so we cheer when Ness throws Nitti off the roof. A pretty dramatic change from real life events, by the way. Nitti lived to take over Capone's empire.

  5. I assume the baseball bat incident is based on fact since it also comes up in Neil Gaiman's Violent Cases.
