6 Comments on Chad’s Top 100

  1. Hey Bill, I bumped Hooper for Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead, how’s that for marrying up? I might add that After Hours replaced Desperately Seeking Susan and the Star Wars Trilogy replaced the individual films (that isn’t cheating, really). With the two free spaces, I added the awesome Hudson Hawk (only Mathew Growden and myself love that film!) as well as wonderful How to Get Ahead in Advertising.
    Amendment noted.
