      Christine - sentient car takes over teenage boy's life and starts killing off his enemies. Good, but not as good as the book.

      Man of Steel - should have called it Pile of Crap. What is it with superhero movies these days, where absolutely everything has to be destroyed in the big finale?

      Raiders of the Lost Ark - the original and best Indy film!

      Despicable Me - great fun.

        Watched The Hunger Games last week, on Film4... Not a bad film, better than I expected
        Engine Failure:.... A condition which occurs when all fuel tanks mysteriously become filled with air.

          The Lion King - still an amazing film, although scary to think this film is now some 20 years old!!

          A Million Ways to Die in the West - second time around, still rather fun!

            The Railwayman.
            A love story about a Burma Railway veteran who has to face his demons.
            One of the best films I've seen for a while and a true story.

              Forrest Gump

              The Shawshank Redemption

              Both great movies, and scary to think that both of them are now 20 years old...!

                Imitation Game.

                Lots of historical accuracy issues, but still a damn fine film and well worth a trip to the cinema as long as you are prepared to leave your WW2 anorak at home.

                Cumberbatch is brilliant. Keira Knightly doesn't manage to look remotely 1940s.

                  Interesting - you might have persuaded me to see it. Although I might wait for the small screen. I am sorry that largely because Cumberlatch is flavour of the year the Hawking film with Eddie Redmayne, which I am really looking forward to, has been "lost".

                    Agree, absolutely brilliant film. Didn't notice any historical inaccuracies myself as I know little about Bletchly and Turin.
                    They managed to turn what could have been a boring film into a totally engrossing one.

                            I don't think it's a spoiler to point out that when they crack the Enigma and find an attack on a convoy in mid-Atlantic is due in less than an hour, it is suggested a fleet of bombers could be there in twenty minutes. It's that sort of stuff rather than what happens inside Bletchley.

                            But still well worth the money of a trip to the movies. Especially after the disappointing mess that was Fury.

                              The Railyway man, I endorse the comments on post 606.

                              Not quite a film, but thoroughly enjoying watching Star Trek (remastered), the original series on CBS Action (Freeview). Such good memories, despite some of the plots and action being veeeeery hammy.

                                Does the remastering include replacement cgi for all the special effects?
                                I remember seeing a special edition Star Trek box set that had this.

                                  Having read the recommendations of this thread it leads me to the conclusion that it is almost totally subjective whether any of us like a film or not!

                                  The correct ratings for Quentin Tarantino films is, of course:

                                  1) Reservoir Dogs
                                  2) Pulp Fiction
                                  3) Jackie Brown

                                  X) Inglourious Basterds - DO NOT WATCH (This film will make you think the Nazis weren't that bad!)

                                    It couldn't be anything else could it? Artistic criticism cannot be objective.

                                        Collection? What format are you 'collecting' films on?

                                        I vowed not to buy any more films on DVD when I could see that 'streaming' films was going to be the future; and, finally, having bitten-the-bullet and thrown-away (as I literally couldn't give away) my VHS film collection.

                                        Interesting to see that you rate 'JAWS' so highly! It has always been a firm favourite of mine; you just have to accept that it isn't actually a film about a shark. It's a film about three men in a boat (than happens to have a shark under it)!

                                          Agreed. Although, there seems to be a very strong correlation between the films you and I rate!
