Well, Dumb and Dumber is also on John's list, so I'm not alone
Yes, I have some rather "strange" choices that I've heard complaints about for several years, but I don't love them for nostalgic reasons as wpqx suggests. Perhaps something of it has to do with growing up with some titles (probably most with the Back to the Future series), but I have revisited many of them a lot of times (City of Angels and Maverick about 7 times?), and they are imo simply great films. City of Angels is for me probably the second best film of `98 (after The Thin Red Line), and if Wenders original version is anywhere near as good I would be delighted (still haven't seen it after all these years ) Home Alone 2 was great the last time I saw it, and before every rewatch I always think it's a guilty pleasure that has somehow managed to survive in my mind as a memorable experience - but, every time I watch it again, it's still adorable.
But heck, I can't understand why many people consider some other films to be great... I guess there are always oddball choices
And yes, mine is a list on which I try to put only films I consider to be especially great achievements in the art of filmmaking. So you'll have to marvel about some of the choices until I give you an in-depth analysis of a given title (that is if it ever happens )
Don't like Tim Curry in the second one that much, btw. (though it's always a pleasure watching him )
