    In looking back, it IS amazing how innate and obvious the concept of “favorites” was when I was a kid. And not just as a summary of childhood in total: I can still remember those favorites demarcating the eras of my youth like signposts on the way to manhood. Masters of the Universe, Thundercats, Voltron, Dungeons and Dragons, Transformers, Dukes of Hazzard, Knight Rider… each held sway at some point or another, and during that time, there was no doubt. There was the King and the also-rans.

    But now the palate’s more refined, the options have blossomed, and the defining lines have softened to gradients and hues. Throw all that into a scorecard system from 1-100 and I’m stumped — but bad stumpage, not the preferable “good stumpage.” It’s great to hear that you get the same visceral satisfaction we do out of Flickchart.

    P.S. Let there be no question at all: Rocky IV is a meaty slab of hexalogy-dominating cinema. Well, probably. I haven’t seen Rocky Balboa yet, but it’s going to take a lot to top what’s undoubtedly Dolph Lundgren’s glistening, oil-slicked shining moment.

    P.P.S. I love them both, but I’d pull the trigger on Big Trouble > Road House pretty quick.

    Big kudos for the usage of “yottahertz”.

    Oh, and sorry if you’re having to clean yourself up more often, as we’re adding newly approved movies almost daily – sometimes throughout the day.
