And I’m very curious to what your favorites are… I like lists because it’s usually the most probably way of finding other interests. If you were to love 9 out of 10 of the movies I just listed, chances are you might like the 10th. And vice-versa.

I defintely will post for this thread, but I need to take some time to think about it, or I’ll keep coming back to make changes because “Shoot, I forgot one!”

I know what you mean! I’ve only been a member for a few minutes, and saw SO many topics and felt like adding or creating posts/threads, but knowing message boards, I’m trying to understand the informal norms.

**Comedians: **
