Hi all, I thought I would start a movie thread, see what kind of films we all like, maybe give some recomendations etc..

I love all genres as long as the acting is good and the story too.. My favourite kind of films are comedies and cool/retro/Tarantino type films.

Here are some of my faves to get the ball rolling, feel free to ask what any of them are like/about if you've not seen them before-

Planes, trains and automobiles
Highlander
Predator
Killing Zoe
Meet Joe Black
True Romance
Seven
Shawshank Redemption


Well that's a start, I could go on forever, films are about my only hobby left.. lol

    I reckon if we keep going and a few join in we'll have a right library on our hands, maybe we can rent them out in the porta-loo/cabin?
    lol

    Quadraphenia, great film, Sting is cool in the court scene.. "will you take a cheque mi lord?" Haha
