From when it was posted on Aint It Cool News many years ago:
"I thought you might like this list of my 100 favorite movie moments. I thought this mainly because my list kicks a lot of ass, and is no doubt better than any list you might start and abandon halfway through. Ahem. At any rate...run this, punk."

Posted on a Patton Oswalt Q&A message board:
"Here are 100 favorite movie moments of mine. I probably have 500 more. I tried to avoid any of the movies on the AFI List. Except for one, I think I did it. Enjoy:"


Please check out my other lists on Listal. My AMAZING UNDERRATED OBSCURE FILMS series has tons of other films in the Patton film geek vein.

Some of them are just too obscure for me but some of them made me crack a smile thinking "Yes, of course! Definitely!"
