If you've seen Life Is Beautiful, I don't need to explain why it's my top film for 1997. If you haven't, go watch it & you'll understand.

One of the best films about romantic relationships I've ever seen, and Ben Affleck in the lead role doesn't take anything away from it (surprisingly). It's also probably my favorite Kevin Smith movie.

The game is tailored specifically to each participant. Think of it as a great vacation, except you don't go to it, it comes to you.

The last film Oliver Stone directed that I had any interest in seeing. The soundtrack is also excellent.

Darrell: No! You listen to me goddamnit! Ya sorry son of a bitch! You owe me money! And this car aint goin' no place 'till I get it!

Life is suffering. It is hard. The world is cursed. But still you find reasons to keep living.
