Fave Film [Slim]

Have we done this before? Can't remember. Anyway, here's mine! Someone'll find the old blog and my list will be different, so in advance: I'm a fickle fucker!

Lord of the Rings - Can't help myself here. Read the books age 15, loved them, was amazed that the films actually did the books justice.
Almost Famous - Ace heady band story that captures the feeling perfectly for me. Zooey Deschanel clearly wants me.
Shawshank Redemption - I love steven king, and had a tough choice between this and Green Mile. Shawshank was a fab story brought to life perfectly with an amazing screenplay and some superb acting.
Twelve Monkeys - Love Gilliam films, and really wanted to put Fisher King in here too. And time bandits. Bah. I like this more because it was funny as well as hard hitting. About the only film in which Robin Williams doesn't play himself too, superb.
Brazil - Definately a film that improves with viewings. Wacky and pretentious, but still like it loads.
The Incredibles - I've three nippers, so need films that work on at least two levels. This works on three, ace kids film, fantastic action/bond film and another film that looks at the monotony of life/work/marriage and being normal. Fab film.


  1. Well this is going to lead to an eceltic collection isn't it.
    Empire Strikes Back - More than EP4 I just love this film, got the lot.
    LOTR - Read the books at least 6 times, still prefer the Silmarillion, but the films are just fantastic.
    Blues Brothers - n.b. not BB 2000. Wonderful soundtrack, attitude and cast.
    The Quiet Man - Duke's finest. Great story, stunning visually and just a rollicking good old fashioned film.
    Rocky II - Starts with fight from Rocky 1, deals with character best and has another resouding battle at the end. Great fun.
    Sideways - Only watched it once, but for an American film really handles adult comedy so well. With a proper ending too! Scrapes in my top 5, but may not on repeated viewings.

    n.b These positions are subject to change, films can go up as well as down.
