  1. Hey! A perfect record! I’ve seen none of these. Okay, pick the ONE film here that I absolutely MUST see.

    I know that John Wayne wouldn’t have said… he wouldn’t have “saddle up pilgrim.”

  2. I forgot Walk the Line (which I am seeing this weekend), Match Point, and The Squid and the Whale.

    I think John Wayne would be kind of upset by this movie. There are no “damn Comanche” in it to make it a real cowboy flick.
