    But don't forget the finale. At the end of the movie the kids have a dance and all of them dance like they've been dancing all their lives, although they've never danced before because dancing was banned.

    Don't forget "The Last Waltz." A movie made of a soundtrack, as it were.

    They should have been hit with a wave of dysentery.

    I think the creepy score for the turkey that was the original Amityville Horror was an Oscar nomination.

    Before he died, though, he was the only boy who could ever teach Dusty Springfield.

    Regarding the unintentional humour, the funniest scene was when Ren drove to the mill, all pissed off about something. He got out of the VW and fired the beer bottle away angrily. He was SO MAD!! that all he wanted to do was.....dance? WTF?

    Sorry. "A Hard Day's Night" beats it. John Lennon's genius at its zenith, with a little help from his friends.

    American Graffiti is a great call. Certainly nothing original, but the way the music was used in the movie was masterful.

    Halloween also belongs on this list.
