"Good night and Good luck " - this is what I thought of, when I signed up to do journalism at university - pity I was 40 years too late
" Run Lola Run" - watched this with my brother and we both loved it, so it's a family favourite.
"Joyeux Noel" - for its gentle humour and hopeful view of humanity.
"last of the mohicans " - only for the soundtrack !
"brazil" - if you need to ask you won't understand !

Speaking of movies, can anyone tell me the name of the movie (quite old) starring Anthony Quinn where he plays the mayor of a town who all get together to hide their wine stocks in caves from the Germans during WW2. Paul

Reservoir Dogs.

Tiny budget yet it has fantastic casting and relied purely on character development and interaction, not big sets or fancy special effects. The 'flashback' style of direction also serves to keep the viewer interested as the plot unfolds.

Honourable mentions also go to; Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, Snatch, Alien, Fight Club, Pulp Fiction and Sin City.

Has to be

Doctor Zhivago ( 1965)

With Omar Sharif, Alec Guiness and Julie Christie to name a few of he cast.

Why - The story, the acting, the music and the scenery.

Second but a long way behind

West Side Story ( 1961)

Just a good all round film with singing, dancing ? and rivalry between the gangs - oh and Natalie Wood !



In general I like those wartime related films like
The Guns of Navarone
Where Eagles Dare
Battle of The River Plate ( is that the right title? )
The Dambusters

etc.

Although its a very sombre film I must admit "Schindlers List" is one of my all time favourites. Its a well made film with some outstanding performances. Also, a film I watched recently which I recommend is "United 93", about the hijacked plane on September 11 2001 which never reached its target. It shows realtime events of that fateful day that will never be forgotten. Unlike many American true depiction films it doesnt seem dramatized over the top and is well worth watching. Andy

There are so may good films its hard to choose but If I had to say it would be Blade. Generally because of its complete madness and wesley snipes is the only man which could pull it off.

But then again Gladiator is another film which is rather good. I went to see that film Crank with jason statham the other day and I was in tears of laughter, so stupid but funny all the same. Blade gets my vote I think.

Baraka - can make me well up in different places every time I watch it. A film that made me want to see the whole world.

Or Finding Nemo for light relief!

I can't believe nobody's mentioned the cult classic yet......

THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW

"what's your favorite color" Magenta!
"where do you get your weed" Columbia!

And a chance to do the "Time Warp....."
Why should the actors have all the fun.........


But seriously......
I always stop to watch Shawshank Redemption or In Harm's Way when they're on TV even though I already have them on video.

It's hard to find but I like Kodachrome 64 slide film.
