    Oh, that’s difficult. Both have aged very well. This is going to take some thought.

    American Werewolf In London is the first of three John Landis films in this. He had a great run of films from Animal House through to Trading Places. It's been a long time since I saw it but I loved Coming To America as a kid too

    I’d rank the Landis in this competition with Werewolf first, Blues Brothers second and Trading Places a distant third. It won’t pan out like that, though.

    Werewolf by a distance. Ferris is a great movie, but American Werewolf is one of the best horror movies made.

    I never got the fuss about Ferris Buellers Day Off. Also Matthew Broderick annoys the fudge out of me.

    I'd have FBDO down as one of the best high school movies

    He’s supposed to, though. That’s the point. We are meant to identify either with his sister or the principal.

    I should have been more specific, he just annoys the fudge out of me in general. Just his face is annoying, he doesnt even have to be acting.

    How many 'high school movies' are there in comparison to horror movies?
