    Easy Rider: Somewhat dated
    Do the Right Thing: A little over the top.
    On the Waterfront: Classic
    Eyes Wide Shut: Yep. Closed for a reason.
    Hard Day’s Night: A Day in the Life
    Midnight Cowboy: Still wondering how I was able to see this movie as a teenager
    When Harry Met Sally: Best performances of Crystal and Ryan’s careers
    Death Wish: Only Bronson
    Forrest Gump: I liked it.
    Blair Witch Project: The ending got me.

    And the choice is: Easy Rider. Wondering what the next generation thinks of this flick.

    Extra Milestone continues to be my favorite aspect of Cinemaholics. Please keep em coming, and my personal wish is the same as JWN. Easy Rider all the way!
