I think he really really relates to Home Alone just for the title.

I'm assuming my jokes are valued at .77 of a man's.

So, instead of doing actual work i need to do I decided to go through and tabulate all the punishments handed down by Essay. Not counted: prelim warnings (1 each) for BigD and Rod. Also, Essay was "

You're too young to know what the hell you're talking about and possibly confusing the Macho Man with the Ultimate Warrior. Macho Man was a legend both in the ring and on the mic. Macho Man vs Ricky Steamboat Wrestlemania 3 is in the conversation for the greatest match of all time. Plus, you have Hulk Hogan on your list who is a complete stiff in the ring, so I hereby officially reproach your integrity, sir.

If mic work, ring presence, and main stream appeal are criteria then where is Rowdy Roddy Piper? I mean, he jumped to movies before any of the other wrestlers tried it AND his starring vehicle is one of the most referenced and imitated sci fi cult hits of all time.

i certainly didn’t confuse the macho man with the ultimate warrior. but i probably am too young as i only saw him on youtube, and i haven’t seen the match you’re referencing. hogan is just too iconic to leave off, even though he was a stiff in the ring.

You still screwed it up with Macho Man.

 

Crimson Tide is a poor poor poor man's Hunt for Red October.  It's good overall, but not at the same level which makes it lose a lot of luster.

Everyone loves True Romance.  I didn't like and it wasn't memorable to me.  I guess I need to rewatch it since it's been like 25 years since I've seen it.

I have no issues with this list.  Might move Once Upon a Time up a couple of spots, but solid

 

I totally agree.  I would have switched his #3 and #4 but it was solid overall.

 

Once upon a time is such a great movie.  I love it.   I've seen it 3 times.

I don't find Django to be very rewatchable, and on the offensive side, despite a lot (like, 6?) of really good performances. Hateful Eight is along the same lines. I really love Inglorious, and Kill Bill 2 over 1 is just ****ing insane. So, I have a lot of issues with your list, and I think it sucks.
