    Anne of the Thousand days. Because I'm obsessed with Tudor history and the costumes were brilliant

    Galaxy Quest. because it's funny , I love science fiction and Alan Rickmans in it!


    Love actually. I watch this with a large G&T every Xmas eve. It just makes me smile, and Alan Rickman's in it! (no repetition there then!)

    1. Pretty Woman - love, love, love it!
    2. Mary Poppins - this reminds me of being a little girl and snuggling up on the sofa, with my little brother at the other end on a rainy Saturday afternoon with the quilt thrown over us. I still love it now!
    3. Love Actually! - Because I'm an old softie and I just love it! The scenes at Heathrow at the start always get me going and so does Hugh Grant's speech as PM saying what a small but great country we are!

    I have a fair few favs but these are prob top 3! xxx

    Love Actually for me too. I cry from beginning to the end every time I watch it. It is so funny yet so sad.

    City of Angels. The music is wonderful and also love the story.

    Beaches. Again music and story do it for me.

    As you can see I am a big softie.

    I hate you Judimac!!!!!!! Let me explain...... ;)

    I read the title and thought 'That's an easy one'...... Then me and the OH got talking......

    At first, my list was;

    The Sting. A great crime caper film that was beautifully made.
    Hudson Hawk. Even with mixed reviews from other people - I love it pmsl every single time....
    The Inside Man. The perfect crime story. I wish I'd written it, I would have been sooo proud.

    Then... the OH said 'Well Star Wars obviously' Doh!! How could I have forgotten that one!!! Then I read some other lists, 'Of course!! Dirty Dancing!!!' Ooooh! And Love Actually...(I've still got it on the PVR)...And Keeping Mum (Patrick Swayze and his 'Lurve pouch'!!)....

    Then of course I started thinking about all the great Indian 'Bollywood' films that I love watching.... Devdas (the ending makes me sob like a baby EVERY SINGLE TIME!!).... and then thinking about subtitles made me remember the great Korean and Chinese films......

    Then OH piped up with 'Well of course there are ALL of the James Bond films to choose from...!!!'... At this point I just sent him out of the room....!!!

    And now, he just put his head round the door and said just one word.... Matrix...

    Now I've just got so many great films flying around in my head, I'm just so frustrated that I can't even make a definitive top twenty, let alone a top three..... That coupled with an annoying OH who keeps popping in with yet ANOTHER great film title that I'd forgotten!!!!

    I HATE YOU JUDIMAC !!!!!!!!!!!! :p
