I didn't even have Children of Men in my top five. The more I think about it, the less I understand my own thought process on that one. Sometimes I am stupid.

Oh wow, I got quoted! Nice.

Children of Men rocked. I must have stared at the monitor for five minutes trying to decided whether I liked it or United 93 better. I went with United 93, but I could just as easily go with Children of Men right now.

Wow, wudn't even close.

(It was my #1.)

(Oh, and Steve, I forgot about The Departed for script. I'm not entirely sure it would've made the cut, but it should've been at least considered.)

(The Proposition looked like it was sitting in Miramax's vault for the last twelve years, but then, something about that movie makes me cranky. Ignore me!)
