    I’ve seen all these movies at one time or another. I used to love Defending Your Life, particularly that scene where they were viewing their pasts lives (that tough old guy who used to be a little girl was hilarious). I really need to rewatch all of them, except for maybe As Good As It Gets since I don’t recall liking it that much. Network I saw when I was a teenager and barely remember most of it. I had to watch Broadcat News in a film class and haven’t seen it since. So maybe I’ll revisit these soon.

    As Good As It Gets is the only movie here that I’ve seen, and I love it. Guess I should give Broadcast News a try; I might enjoy it.

    I love these Flickchart-themed movie reviews. And I like that they don’t have to be for new movies.

    I’m also noticing that Broadcast News need more posters! :)
