With all this talk of Sandy Smith (epilepsy warning on that last link), his greatest project still wants for submissions. Smith: In May 2007 I commissioned an essay from a supplier of tailor-made academic essays. I requested a 1500 word essay that was to "prove that Junior... is the best film ever made." This essay was to make reference to various writers including Freud, Barthes, Baudrillard and Jameson in proving it's case. Yes, that Junior.

I am currently working on my own entry, though privately, I am convinced that Predator is at least the greatest action film ever made. It has a script to rival the best of Chekhov, Ibsen, O'Neill- although they did cook it up and drop them in the meatgrinder.
