    Finally, a Mojo list that includes all the obvious choices… They finally got a top 10 that's just about right.

    mojo actually did a very good job with this list. Only problem is that Big trouble should have been number one or two.

    Repo Man is one of the most entertaining movies I've ever seen…
    I wish it was as popular as Big Lebowski and Rocky Horror Picture Show in terms of cultdom.
