Seven of Nine
more than any other time in history, mankind faces a crossroads. one path leads to despair and utter hopelessness. the other, to total extinction. let us pray we have the wisdom to choose correctly.

Between this and the Top Five Favorite Movies thread, you'd think movies were unheard of before the 60's.

In all fairness, if you look at most of the favorite films chosen by the directors who are popping up most often on this thread (PTA, Wes, Scorsese, etc.), most of their favorite films are films they grew up on.  Given that the average age of the users on this site has to be closer to 20 than 30, you can't really blame anyone for putting Pulp Fiction in their top ten any more than you can blame Tarantino for voting for Taxi Driver in his Sight & Sound top ten.

QT also listed "His Girl Friday" (1940) on that same list.
