Jean-Pierre Jeunet's 'The City of lost Children' is a personal favourite, as long as it's not the dubbed version (which does it no favours at all).

No one favourite but Blade Runner and Standing in the shadows of Motown are near the top of my list

Yeah I'd whisper if Blade Runner was one of my favourites too! :P

 

Nah, I vividly remember posting on here I just didn't get the hype, I'm glad I wasn't the only one, but each to their own.

 

And this is in no-way an excuse for this to become another media-snobbery thread!

One film I was looking forward to and met my expectations was Rise of the Planet of the Apes, I really enjoyed that. Another which I had no expectations of but I really enjoyed was District 9.

It was the coincidence that threw me, and it took a Hullonian to twig, and not twig himself.

The Warriors

Spot on - let's hope the remake never ever sees the light of day.

There are so many films I have enjoyed, but a short list is:

 

A Fistful of Dollars, For a Few Dollars More, The Good The Bad and The Ugly, The Third Man and all three versions of The 39 Steps.

 

A psychiatrist would have a field day with me quoting that mixed-up collection.  :)

Billy Liar, especially the ten minutes between Billy and his pal going for lunch and Julie Christie opening the supermarket.

Is there summat I've missed here as I've no idea what the original post was alluding to. :(

 

Anyways, "An inspector calls" for me, Alastair Sim is absolutely superb in it.
