    What are your favourite films?

    I love watching movies and have loads of dvds lol Don't think I can choose just one favourite film. Right now I love Avatar and District 9 :)

    My favourite film/s of all time have to be the Lord of the Rings trilogy!

    I also love the Star Wars saga!

    Love 300, Gladiator, Fight Club, American History X, the Beach, Terminator 1 + 2, Rambo First Blood...

    And I could go on, I tend to 'download' lots and especially while on LT my friday and saturday nights are spent in bed watching some awesome flicks!

    Tough to pick just one


    If I had to, it'd probably be Silence of the Lambs

    Among my favourites are Trainspotting,American History X, Shawshank Redemption

    Hmmm whats American History X like? Since you've both mentioned it, I may have to check it out. Need different films to watch lol Getting bored of all my dvds.

    Haven't seen 300 in ages! Loved it when it first came out. May watch that this weekend :D

    My absolute fave is 12 Angry Men (1957) - not least for the superbly simple final scene when they all leave the court room.

    But I love love love Indiscreet, A Beautiful Mind, North by Northwest, The Tenant, Almost Famous, The Bishop's Wife, It's a Wonderful Life, Rosemary's Baby, The Great Escape, Audition, Withnail and I ... that's about all I can think of right now.

    American History X is really quite brutal.

    It centres round 2 brothers in LA. The older one (Ed Norton) has just been released from prison for a racialy aggrivated murder.

    It follows him telling his young brother his journey in prison and how he is turning his back on his former Neo-Nazi friends

    Very violent and brutal in parts, and heart-breaking in others.

    American History X is a brilliant film, such good acting too. My film tastes very, I will always love Star Wars, always been a star wars geek lol. A more recent film I really like at the moment is American Gangster, Denzel is awesome in everything he's in lol. Loved the departed too, another fave of mine at the moment. But one of my fave films of all times is definitely Blow with Johnny Depp! That and The Lion King lol.

    I love The Blind Side with Sandra Bullock. Was so funny in parts and yet also had you with a lump in your throat in others. Beautiful film.
