Hi Jimmy.


I was musing on this one on the way in.


I couldn't get into 'The Usual Suspects', and '7'.


Definitely with you on The Shawshank Redemption. The Green Mile is up there, too. [Do you know the connection between those movies?]


As Good As It Gets. Die Hard and Die Hard 2, of course. Shrek, Toy Story and Alladin. Field of Dreams. Reservoir Dogs but NOT Pulp Fiction. The Devils Advocate. It's a Wonderful Life and High Noon [from my grandparents era]. Zulu [from my parents era]. The Good, The Bad and The Ugly. Dirty Harry. Independence day. Little Voice. Pretty Woman. Saving Private Ryan.


The Sixth Sense and Dead Poets Society wont quite make 'My Top 5'.


So. Is that 5 yet? Oops. Hmmnn.

Re-arrange these words....


"Trev" "is" "a" "t*sser" "pretentious" !!!!!


You'll never be accepted as a fully-fledged member of a real firm with choices like those. You should spend less time watching crap films, and more time fighting in the name of your club!! <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="images/icons/wink.gif" />


Check out The EFM Website by the way

Talking of Stephen King movies, I always liked The Dead Zone; a good twist at the end and you can't go wrong with Christopher Walken and Martin Sheen.


Still like those 80s Brat Pack movies though (it's my age), The Breakfast Club in particular.

Apologies for the pretentiousness of my list, Paul. For the record, "Westworld" is a "Jurassic Park" style robots going mad in a theme park style film (yes, by Michael Crichton, who wrote "Jurassic Park" -what an imagination the man has). "The Taking Of Pelham 123" is a heist movie - a big screen blockbuster, as it were - with a lavishly funky soundtrack, "Chasing Amy" is a comedy starring Ben Affleck about a man who falls in love with a lesbian, "Brighton Rock" is a classic British film noir. It's about a hooligan. Read into that what you wish. Pretentious? Moi?


Many apologies if my list was too different to everyone else's - please find below a revised list:


1. The Santa Clause - Tim Allen! As Father Christmas!

2. Crossroads - Because it's got Britney in it.

3. Glitter - Mariah Carey's finest hour.

4. Trainspotting - because it would appear to be a caqpital offence if it isn't one of your favourite films.

5. Digby: The Biggest Dog In The World - Goodness, what a big dog!

6. Sorry, can't choose between any of the seven "Police Academy" films... All of them. Back to back.
