Dan! How can you leave out American Werewolf In London :shock::shock::shock: !!! It's bad enough that I'd forgotten one of my all time favourites without you admitting to leave it off your list! Sacrilege!!!


Yes, OK, I'd forgotten Star Wars too (with two Star Wars obsessed boys in the house, don't know how I managed that!)


Yes, yes, and Blues Brothers - John Belushi was tremendous in that!


I can't watch Halloween though. I had nightmares for weeks after watching the video as a teenager :oops: !


I forgot Truly Madly Deeply as well. Anything with Alan Rickman in will do though - so I'll have to put Die Hard and the rest of the series on my ever growing list too!

Oooer, think I'll have to do a Kate & come back & edit this as I remember films because I've just gone blank.

To start with though;


Top Gun sorry, but I find Tom cruise irresistible in that, and the music & the flying scenes. Hubby & I went to see it at the cinema very early in our relationship. He's since bought it on DVD. Ahhh :roll:


Life is Beautiful Italian subtitled film, think it won an Oscar several years ago. Oh boy, did I cry through that one. An Italian jew & his son in a Nazi Concentration camp, and Dad trying to convince the boy that it was all a complicated game and the horrors weren't really happening at all. Incredibly powerful.


A Beautiful Mind Russell Crowe in a film based on the real life of a schizophrenic mathematician. Again, had me in tears


The Colour Purple Oh dear, another tearjerker.


I'm off to think of a cheerful, funny film now :)
