Good ranking...personally I may have put "Cube" at the top but "Boogie Nights" was a great film, was it a close decision for you? I completely agree with you about "Spice World"!

Well, Cube is an interesting and completely claustrophobic film, but it didn't match the acting quality present in Boogie Nights.
