  1. It's really funny. . .a lot of your choices were actually my second choices and only missed out being my first choice by a microbe: John Carpenter's THE THING, Kubrick's THE SHINING, Sidney Pollack's TOOTSIE, Spielberg's JAWS, Fincher's FIGHT CLUB, Gilliam's TIME BANDITS, John Huston's TREASURE OF THE SIERRA MADRE, John Hughes' FERRIS BUELLER'S DAY OFF, and Peckinpah's WILD BUNCH. Loved your list!
