    Can't say I do really, I can think of plenty that I enjoy and like a great deal, but I can't think of any I have a particular attachment to other than the fact that they are my favourites.

    Wow watched all 600 of the movies. Top job. I have around 1000 but have watched around 300-400 of them. I have so much material of TV Series and films that if I don't buy a thing, it can last for 3-4 years. I also consider about 50 films close to my heart in total. I don't possess them all on DVD yet. I generally tend to buy DVDs only if the special features are promising enough.

    I'd say I've probably watched more than double the 600 movies - I just kept 600. I probably watch a movie most nights before I go to bed; on Holidays several in a day. I haven't watched TV for years .

    If I had the security (moneywise) to do so I'd be involved with films. I'd probably want to write screenplays or direct. Actually, I would enjoy acting too.

    I have always had an interest in watching films but they weren't as easily accessible to me as it is now. Now, I can pick any obscure film I want to watch and get it. Many classics have still not been released on DVD mind.

    I have watched films all my life but seriously started watching films around 5-6 years ago when I watched movies like The Godfather for the first time. I have a lot of ground to cover.

    PS - I haven't watched much TV either but friends keep telling me TV Series are great, so I will give few of them a shot.

    PS 2 - I wanted to get involved in films too. My dream job is to direct but I don't think I have the time to learn it because of my business. I shoot with my handicam as a hobby and that's it. I seriously want to produce some small budget local films in a few years though which I can do.

    Me neither, but I do have an unhealthy relationship with my CDs so can understand how someone who's a massive film fan might.

    Anyway, someone mentioned 12 Angry Men a while back, there's also a very decent remake directed by William "French Connection & The Exorcist" Friedkin with Jack Lemmon in the Fonda role. Worth catching.

    "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."

    There is a hindi remake of 12 Angry Men called 'Ek Ruka Hua Faisla'.

    A fair few Criterion and KINO DVDs in my collection are very precious to me as are some other films like Greed.

    Yeah fair, I could probably say the same about myself and books, but I always find books and music to have a bit more character than the majority of films I end up watching, though doubtless some would disagree. Just a matter of personal taste I suppose.

    For everyone who pointed me to the '12 Angry Men' movie, thanks very much. Loved it from start to finish.

    The Hurt Locker is a more serious film. If you want to have a fun time, The Hangover is the ultimate movie to watch.

    Superbad > The Hangover. IMO.

    Saw Speed Racer today and it lived up to expectations. Crap film based on a crap cartoon. The Princes and the Frog yesterday and it's definitely "the best thing from Disney since The Lion King". Seriously good kids film, with enough appeal to be a date movie. Shows that there's still life beyond Pixar for Disney.

I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."
