I have to admit that I was definitely surprised to see "Interview with the Vampire" from 1994 on the list. It's definitely an amazing movie that is worth watching but it's still kind of surprising that it's on the list of the best movies, isn't it? Although then again, I guess it's not that surprising considering that both Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise are in it! ;)
