    The MASH film is very good. Beats Home Alone easily.

    M*A*S*H very clearly. Although I actually saw the telly series a while before the film, so found it very hard to accept anyone but Alan Alda as Hawkeye.

    And Natman, rather than just using the 64 from last time, would it be a better idea to have some discussion re. replacing some movies with others that have come out since, or from changing film tastes on the forum?

    Otherwise the outcome will probably be very similar to last time.
