  3. Donnie Darko: I couldn't even begin to explain the plot but it's a fantastic film.
    Pan's Labrinth: Horror/fantasy story set in fascist Spain in 1944. A young girl finds solace in a fantasy world. It features the creepiest movie monster I've ever seen [​IMG].
    Death at a Funeral: Hilarious, all the action takes place at a funeral and what can go wrong, does go wrong. Unusually for me, I preferred the American version.
    Public Enemies: Johnny Depp is superb as American gangster John Dillinger.
    Bruce Almighty: Jim Carrey gets to be God. Worth watching just for the bit featuring Steve Carrell as a completely tongue-tied newsreader. Priceless.

    You should try the mysterious 'blue film challenge', known only to serious film buffs and certain students in the early 90's. The challenge is where you watch the following films all in one night:

    Blue Velvet
    Blue Betty
    The Blues
    Brothers
    The Big Blue
    Pollux et le Chat Bleu
     
  6. I have so many films I adore!

  7. Went to see Insidious at the weekend. The story gets a bit daft but it is without doubt the scariest film I have ever seen [​IMG].
     
  8. Gone of the Wind- colour, spectacle, great acting, 4 hours and no boredom. Utterly charming
