How could they have omitted Prayer of the Rollerboys? (IMDB plot keywords: Apocalypse, Gang, Roller Skating, Independent Film. Hee.)

how in the heck is wings of desire a dystopian movie? (it's my favorite movie of all time, but the word dystopia has never even entered my head in connection with it.)

I have seen a whopping four, maybe five of these. Nevertheless, I think I'll repost because I have a friend that I'd really like to do this meme.

You said Silent Running was the first movie you remember seeing in the movie theatre. How the heck do I remember seeing it in the movie theatre???? I would have been two! I'm trying out possiblities, but none of them make sense.

I guess if I had seen other movies in the theater they just didn't make much of an impression.
