It was ok, probably Kevin Smith's best film (I'm not really a fan). But does it belong on a list of "influential and classic films"? Not really. Did it bring anything new to the table or influence modern film in any way? Meh.

I'd just rather see something truly visionary like Visitor Q, which while not necessarily "influential" is most definitely "visionary" and pushes the boundaries of morality, reality, and taste to the breaking point (and beyond), while retaining its poignancy and message.

Actually, I had been thinking Ornette Coleman, but I agree.

One of the most entertaining, greatest pieces of social satire ever put to film, and I'll buy that for a dollar. Verhoeven really hit the mark here. I wish he had been as up to par on Starship Troopers (though, if memory serves, you liked that one a lot more than I did).

Even as a jazz lover I don't particularly like Ornette so maybe that explains it.

Holy crap. Never even seen/heard of that before. NOW I finally have a reason to learn Japanese!

I will be the first to admit that 'Troopers isn't as great a movie as Robocop. Although, I guess you just did it, so ... let me be the second to admit that... blah blah blah.
