    The Rock

    Caught the last 45mins of this last night. Forgot how good this was!

    Leon

    Natalie Portman hides out with expert assassin Jean Reno after her family is gunned down by a rogue DEA agent. Cracking film - hadn't seen it in ages!!

      Despicable Me 2, there is a flat bit in the middle 20 mins when the "plot" drags, but the visual jokes from the Minions, as per, are hysterical. The mickey take of boy bands is priceless.....

          The Heat with Bullock and McCarthy

          I am afraid that McCarthy is going to end up like many recent over-weight actors, dead at an early age but damn she is good.

            Django Unchained [again]

            A great film by QT. Even better second time round

              The Exorcist

              Pretty scary but can't face me into fearing me. But still creeped me watching it again and again.

              I still enjoy some luaghters in the movie like the crucifix scene

                Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

                Meh. I don't care if it IS a classic, I thought it was "meh" at best.

                Legend of the Guardians

                Utter drivel. Looks nice, but it's still utter drivel.

                  Flying Tigers

                  John Wayne plays a squadron commander in China dealing with a cocky, over-confident pilot in his outfit, while attempting to beat the Japanese at the same time. Pure wartime fodder, of course, but still very watchable, especially for its Oscar-nominated special effects.

                    Jack Hawkins in The Cruel Sea.
                    Possibly the finest Sea war film ever made. Interestingly doesn't age as there are no special effects. All action is real.

                        Great films rarely seem to appear in this thread, but this certainly one of them!

                              What? I watch plenty of great movies (dependent, of course, on what your definition of "great" is), but I like watching all sorts, too.

                                That's true Daz - greatness is a subjective judgement although there are probably 100 films which are generally accepted fall into the category. It's just an impression that with some exceptions that general category is not widely represented here.
                                Just out of interest what are your top five?

                                  My top five?

                                  1) Jaws
                                  2) Battle of Britain
                                  3) Raiders of the Lost Ark
                                  4) Die Hard
                                  5) War Horse

                                  (Note that three of those are Spielberg efforts!)

                                    Thanks - indeed, I did notice! 2) would get into my top 10, I think.

                                      The World's End

                                      Simon Pegg and Nick Frost attempt to finish an epic pub crawl which they started on their last day of school, (spoiler deleted)

                                      Not bad, but not as brilliant as their previous efforts, I felt. Still good, though.

                                      Jaws III

                                      Giant rubber shark mayhem. If you like that sort of thing!

                                        I saw World's End last week. As good as Shaun, better than Fuzz in my opinion.

                                        It had me laughing helplessly, several times.
