Films and films and films and films…..

Writing about it's about films! from Tilting At Windmills

In an attempts to pump some much needed life into this largely comatose blog I belatedly take the baton from Han:

The last film I saw at the cinema: Star Wars III - Sin City and League of Gentlemen up next.

The last film I watched otherwise: Play It Again, Sam – one of the most watchable films ever but I was watching this for revision. Apart from that the last film I watched for leisure was probably Apocalypse Now Redux

Films I'm looking forward to seeing: Sin City and League of Gentlemen at the cinema and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory of course.

Total number of films I own: I'm not entirely sure but I have about 470 DVDs although not all of these are fillms.

Five films that mean something to me: Apocalypse Now, The Trouble With Harry, 24 Hour Party People, Pulp Fiction, High Fidelity

Honourable mentions: Dr Strangelove, The Wicker Man, The Odd Couple, Almost Famous (Directors Cut), After Hours, Some Like it Hot, Manhattan, A Matter of Life and Death, Lost in Translation, The 39 Steps, It's A Wonderful Life, Groundhog Day, Mulholland Drive… Too many to name them all

Passing the baton: To anybody who hasn't done this yet
