3. Bowling For Columbine

I had to grow into an adult to appreciate Moore's work, but boy did he call bullshit where he saw it.

24. I was thinking of the Coens in general

Most of their movies have such a strong grounding in a particular time and place in America.

16. Maybe the aliens have updated their software by now

They were using Windows 98 in the first movie. Or maybe Windows 95.

19. I always assumed it was a Mac

At lease it was a Mac that Jeff Goldblum used to connect to the alien ship and as everyone who used a Mac in the 90's knows they didn't just connect to non-Mac networks. LOL
