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.

what are your top five films?

Postby Annpan » Sun May 11, 2008 9:44 pm

My current top five are

1. Amelie
2. Harvey
3. Lord of the Rings trilogy
4. North By North West
5. Back To the Future Trilogy

But these will all change by tomorrow:wink:

what are your favourites?




The reason I am asking is I have hit a slight problemo with my film watching.

I can no longer watch anything 'scary' as it gives me the creeps to much we watched 'The Last King of Scotland' last night and I have been having flashbacks all day :( It is the image of his wife in the hospital, for those who have seen it... I couldn't watch the end 'cause I felt very ill.

Anyway we both love films and I am really ruining JohnM's ability to watch stuff 'cause I am too squeamish :cry:

Another Back to the Future Fan. Nice one.

There was a time that I would always have Star wars triolgy in my top ten, the new flims have sullied that.

Er what else...

Repo Man is up there as is Withnail and I. I know Highlander off by heart and lastly a film that I was in that has been in production for 9 years. It is by Luther Jones, filmed in Nottingham and it is called getting some. Nope it is not a blue movie it is about a group of people trying to meet other people. I play a geek, a new labour geek,

It so hard to name 5.

1. The Italian Job (1968)
2. Leon
3. Back to the Future Trilogy
4. Bad Boys I & II
5. Crash

I have a sick sense of humour for bad films too, some of the national lampoons series and old school, along with talaheada nights are classic shockers.

I can't even remember five films I've seen... Oh well, I probably could. But most of them are a few years back, so don't know whether I'd remember them properly.

bet I've got you beaten on fewest cinema visits over the last 30 years - I've been twice! :mrgreen:
Have never understood the attraction of cinemas - to pay large sums of money to sit on an uncomfortable seat, to have to peer through people's hats/hairstyles at the screen, and put up with squawking kids, cellophane wrappings, the stench of synthetic pheromones and chewing gum, all to watch some blessed film that if it's any good will be on the haunted goldfish bowl in a year or three's time............. :mrgreen:

Yes, I admit it - you are right there. I've been twice in the last ten years (here in Scotland); my friend dragged me along to one Lord of the Rings, and one Harry Potter film! Still prefer the books.
