Top 35 "Simpsons" movie-referencing quotes ...
Just as we, IMDb users, talk about movies every once in a while, so did most Simpsons' characters... and for our greatest delight. Here is a compilation of 35 quotes from the most quotable show of all-time, all of them referencing a film (well, sometimes, it's more about the book or the titular character, but I couldn't resist!). Some are funny in a clever way, some are hilariously nonsensical, some are so obscure it can takes years to get them...from the cane of "Citizen Kane" to Lionel Hutz' suit against "The Neverending Story" for false advertizing, from Homer sending a fan-letter to "Die Hard" to Bart's friends strangely enthusiastic for sneaking into "Barton Fink", which of these quotes 'd'oh!' you think is the funniest? Now, fasten your seatblets, this is going to be a bumpy, Godzilla-related, night! Discuss here

Most Unexpected Sequel
Sometimes the decisions of the production companies are odd. For example, why make a sequel to Highlander (1986) while the whole point of the original movie was "There can be only one"? Who had the idea to make a prequel to Cruel Intentions (1999) while it was a transposition from the 18th century to the 90s of Choderlos de Laclos's Dangerous Liaisons? Why make a sequel to Dumb and Dumber (1994) without Jim Carrey, Jeff Daniels and the Farrelly brothers? Anyway, from this list of unlikely sequels, which one is for you the most unexpected? Not the best or the worst, just the most... unexpected. Poll here! Discuss here!
