particularly fond of the tammys' "egyptian shumba"

From what I remember Mousehunt was pretty great. And I cannot bring myself to hate any Jurassic Park. Otherwise, I don't care about any of that list.

managed a video store in the 90's.. avg # of vids watched per night: 4
I made it my business to be able to tell ppl what sucked and what didn't.

I think I've seen almost every domestic theatrical release of 94'
I'm far, far away from that kind of record now. I can count all the movies I've seen from 2007 on one hand.

Amen. Video store clerk was probably the best job I'll ever have in my life.

yes between the free access to a fairly decent independent catalog and the time to basically educate myself with numerous filmographies was always a plus. Not to mention the sweet spot of being the buyer for a time was cool too but then I had to grow up and get a real job that paid something better.
