Top 4 cycles through various favorites of mine.
Oh man, I needed to watch a film like this to boost my mood. Some old prick and his smug hag of a wife decided to cuss me and my mom out in a parking lot for the dumbest reason EVER. Apparently, trying to give someone the right of way is a crime against humanity, and anyone who does it deserves a whirlwind of hate thrown their way.

It begs for a new Blu-ray release, hurry the hell up Peter Jackson!
