    I absolutely love Kiterunner. Also love Shawshank redemption. Loved Rendition. Boy in the Striped Pyjamas was really good too.

    Gosh there are so many.......

    I also love history of any sort in books or films.... and the 2 films I've enjoyed in recent years have been the 2 'Elizabeth I' films, starring Cate Blanchette (who I think is a class actress)

    I also loved 'Gladiator' and 'Kingdom of Heaven' (I love Ridley Scot films)

    2 older films I love is 'The Magnificent Seven' and 'Once Upon A Time In America' (I love any Robert De Niro film, but not his 'comedy' ones)

    And 'The Quiet Man' with John Wayne and Maureen O'Hara - I could sit and watch it every day, love it.

    A film I didn't fancy but enjoyed was West Side Story - I cried buckets all through it)

    Musical films - I hate Musical's (although the exception is a Barbra Striesland film) - I love her voice and my favourite film is 'The Prince Of Tides'

    Sorry Judi - I have mentioned more films than you intended I think.....

    I have plenty of favourites including Stargate, The Green Mile, It's a Wonderful Life, Primal Fear, The Game and I really could go on!

    As for films I didn't fancy but ended up enjoying, I can't think of any! But that is really because I always look forward to any film - if I didn't fancy it I probably wouldn't watch it lol.

    Films I don't like include Cloverfield, Escape from New York (or L.A., whichever was the follow up), Blair Witch 1 and 2, Jackie Brown (turned it off after 20 mins).

    I am quite easily pleased with films, so it is rare for me to not enjoy one really.

    Fave film: Argh I like loads...erm...I love the classic chick flicks such as Dirty Dancing, Pretty Woman and such. I also love Top Gun. But I'd say, if I had to choose one fave film it would be Gladiator.

    Film you loved but didn't expect to: I went with friends to see Twilight not knowing anything about it. I went feeling neutral about it and loved it. Read all the books and now cannot wait for the second movie next month hehe.

    Film I hated: I generally hate any films with gratuitous violence, so I'd never watch SAW or the like. I was massively un-impressed with Fame recently too.

    yaaaaaayyyy i love this thread i am a total film nut i did a film degree so i can talk bout this stuff forever

    fave film will always be eternal sunshine of the spotless mind

    film i didnt think i would like was keeping mum quaint english comedy with rowan atkinson and patrick swayze it's lovely and very well written and acted i suggest it for a sunday afternoon its also got maggie smith in it.

    What is your favourite film?

    I have many films that I love - most Pixar ones, for example, and things like The lake House and You've got Mail...but my fave film of all time is actually a musical. I simply love 'Hair' - makes me cry each time I see it all well.

    Is there a film you didn't fancy but really enjoyed?

    I really wasn't fussed to see 'The long Good Friday' but really enjoyed it. The same with the original Get Carter (wouldn't see the remake) and 'Taken', and the Godfather films but in each case ended up enjoying them.

    Which film did you hate?

    I was really looking forward to seeing 'Elizabeth' as I'm a huge Tudor and Elizabeth 1st buff but was disappointed in it - the historical accuracy just wasn't there, too many 'that never happened' incidences for me I'm afraid, so I've never even seen the sequel.

    Oh! Thought of another one I hate: Children of Men!

    I have read the book and loved it, but the film changes the story! There are people in there who aren't in the book, the main character is changed and so is the ending *GRRR*
