I would love to have that mask! (nobody quite understands my quiet adoration of Phantom of the Paradise...I gave my idiot brother my soundtrack CD to get Paul Williams to sign it, but my brother somehow destroyed the CD, not exactly easy to come by either) Now if the other guy watched PotP 365 time in a year, then I would be impressed!

I'm with you about being on the fence about the show. The questions should be harder, and I really don't dig the memorabilia part of the show. I had thought it would be a legit serious film quiz show -- but it's more like a souped-up Beat the Geeks.

Mind you, I do have a hairbrush I stole from Nastassia Kinski's trailer, but that's another story. . .

I just think they spent too much time on the look and tone of the show and not enough on the actual content. And I understand the thinking that a "fanatic" would have the weirdest stuff, but you're right filmbrain: it should have been more knowledge based. Keep the memorabilia segment, but give it less importance.

i admit that the Phantom helmet was great but: a) hardly anyone knows that movie (only true geeks do - I love it by the way and b) my Woody book WASN'T something I just got on eBay. (I don't know for sure Edwin did, but he didn't have a fun story as to how he got it.)

Anyway I deserved to win because I am a swell guy.
