    Taxi Driver
    12 Angry Men
    American History X
    To Kill A Mockingbird
    Unbreakable
    Carlito's Way

    In no particular order (except Cross of Iron, which is my all-time fav film) here's my ten favourite films:

    Cross of Iron
    Withnail & I
    Reservoir Dogs
    Platoon
    Trainspotting
    A Clockwork Orange
    Amadeus
    It’s a Wonderful Life
    The French Connection
    Night of The Hunter
    Cricket Web's 2013/14 Premier League Tipping Champion

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."
    - Barney Ronay on Mario Balotelli
