Personally, I want to know why The Princess Bride didn't make the fantasy list. And yeah, Field of Dreams? Not fantasy. I may have to make my own lists.

Also, you have to watch Cat Ballou right now. I'll wait...

I've heard good things about Cat Ballou. I should check out the Starz Westerns channel line-up.

And Princess Bride should've been on there too, definitely.
