I love watching those classic movies. War films - Where Eagles Dare and The Great Escape. Comedies - Laural and Hardy and you can't beat the old Carry Ons. I also like The Wizard Of Oz..

So what are your all time classic movies?

I love Where Eagles Dare-I have watched that film more times than any other.

Other classics which are my favourites include Zulu, Bridge over the River Kwai, Jaws, Planet of The Apes (original), The 49 Steps, A Bridge Too far.

I must go and have a look at my video/DVD collection which is boxed up following a house move a few months ago.

It's a toss up between
Dumb and Dumber and the Blues Brothers for my favourite movie

other movies I've liked.

Perfect World
The Lion King
The Little Mermaid
Beauty and the Beast
Robin Hood (Disney version)
Independence Day
Men in Black ( but not the sequels)
What lies Beneath
Indiana Jones ( all of them)


I watched a movie called Seven when it first came out. It put me into shock, I had to go for counselling. Not been to the cinema since.

I don't trust movie makers or the certification body ( BBFC) any more.

Why? It was a certificate 18 and the content should have been clear from the promotion. Plus, not all films in the cinema are like that!

(I think Se7en is brilliant and saw it twice in the cinema, plus bought on VHS and DVD).

This Island Earth

When Worlds Colide

Day the Earth Stood Still

(50 sci-fi, very corny but in a cosy way!)

Stir Crazy

Kelly's Heroes

Rio Bravo

28 days later (not really a Zombie fest fan but I loved the atmosphere of this film, society broken down, London deserted....great)

Vertigo

Rear Window (seen loads ofd times but still gives me butterflies in the stomach when the man realises he is being watched)

It was sick. I didn't really know what it was about before I watched it, just turned up at the cinema and thought I'll give that a go. Afterwards I was unable to speak for 5 days.

Other 18 cert movies I'd seen prior to that didn't have that effect.

Fair enough. It is a bit intense. I was just wondering 'cos I also really like the rest of the films on your list and found it weird we're so different over that one!

I don't mind the odd horror or violence that's obviously OTT (hence The War of the Roses in my list) but psycho stuff and stalking/hostage type films are upsetting (I can't even watch EastEnders these days).

I also left out family/childrens films from my list. Just about every Disney animation, up to Toy Story 2, would have appeared on it. More recent ones seem to have been almost too clever, in terms of effects, dialogue and execution, for their own good.

Kelly's Heroes


How could I have forgot this? Very Happy Used to be the highlight of my Christmases when I was younger. "Stop hitting me with those negative waves!" The production staff had even tried to make the Tigers look like Tigers, which is more than could be said for the likes of "Castle Keep", etc.

If we're also talking about 50s B-movies, then I'll have to add "Forbidden Planet" to the list - simply for the firefight with the invisible monster that leaves huge indentations on the stairs to the C-57D.

I do like the Die Hard Movies. Batman old, and new. Can't wait for the next one out in summer 2008.
