what are your top five films?

Do you think The Good Life could be remade, with me or Dave playing Tom Good (maybe not!)? If you have seen something on TV or heard something on the radio recently that you want to talk about, tell us here.

Pulp Fiction
Resevoir Dogs

Don't know why but i like Quentin tarantino's method of writing a movie then placing it's structure in a metaphorical washing machine.

These are some really good "feel good" films.

An Affair To Remember - Cary Grant Deborah Kerr
First Wives Club - Goldie Hawn, Bette Middler, Diane Keaton, Maggie Smith
My House in Umbria
The Full Monty
While You Were Sleeping

And for very funny and a good laugh it has to be
Blazing Saddles and the Life of Brian


Watch with a best friend!
Guaranteed to make you feel better! :hugish:

Sooooooo many to choose from!

Whistle Down The Wind
Naked (the Mike Leigh movie)
Roman Holiday
The Nightmare Before Christmas
The Posideon Adventure (original - Shelly Winters stuck in Christmas tree, classic cinema!)

But they change with my mood, really.
I took my dog to play frisbee. She was useless. I think I need a flatter dog.

Hey, I know its been a few months but mine are;

To Catch a Thief (Grace KellY Carey Grant)
For Richer for Poorer (Tim Allen)
Wittness (Harisson Ford - Barn Raising scene is fantastic!!!!)
Dune Original Version
The Money Pit (Tom Hanks Shelley Long)


Oh and anything with Jackie Chan (did you know he was raised in the back room of an embassy and it had no windows, he only ever had enough money to get a bus to school or buy launch, never both)
Our remote ancestors said to their mother Earth, "We are yours."
Modern humanity has said to Nature, "You are mine."
The Green Man has returned as the living face of the whole earth so that through his mouth we may say to the universe, "We are one."

My five would be.

Goodbye Lenin
Goodnight Mister Tom ( With John Thaw, cracking film)
