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.
