Re: ST-TMP: your first time...
Agreed. Great thread and great post Warped 9
Sadly I can't contribute. TMP was before my time, and the only one I didn't see at a cinema. It sits fourth behing TWOK, TVH and TUC on my favourites list. But those four sit apart from the rest by some distance, I love them all.
