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 "

that is ten demerits, brvy. just because you and i are the only people left in the world doesnt mean the rules no longer apply. plus, the Dark Knight is so overrated. 

Did I really overrate it it by saying that it was the 8th best Morgan Freeman movie?

Wait.  Are you talking about Matt's role in these movies or are you ranking the actual movies?  Because if you think that The Legend of Bagger Vance is better than Saving Private Ryan, we can't be friends.

obviously it is ranked low because it is not a matt damon movie, but he is in the movie. come on son. that's ten demerits. 

You get 10 demerits for not titling that "Top Ten Matt Damon Roles".

 

Also, I'm generally ok with your list since it's Matt Damon roles.  How long did you think about Will Hunting vs Colin Sullivan?  I think a strong case could be made to switch them.  I'm also surprised by the lack of anything Bourne related.

i didnt find it hard at all actually. over time, Good Will Hunting has progressed to the very top of my all time movies list. if i redid that last it would make the list, how high is hard to say. The Departed is probably like 27 overall.

You love Scorsese WAY more than me.  I think The Departed is easily his best movie.  I didn't love Gangs of New York or Wolf of Wall Street.  I did think Casino was good; although not nearly as good as The Departed.  Frankly, I'm shocked that you didn't like The Departed more than all three.
