I have an unseemly attachment to Top Gun :shock:

The Lord of the Rings trilogy is fantastic (have all three on extended DVD), Black Hawk Down is a fine, fine movie, Romeo + Juliet (the Baz Luehrman version0 is a fantastic work.

Has to be Bluejuice for me - randomly videoed it when I was 15, 8 years on and I still absolutely love it!
Never fails to put a smile on my face... especially the old adverts in the breaks!

Pulp Fiction ... cracks me up!

[cleaning their bloody hands]
Jules: Fuck, nigger, what did you do to his towel?
Vincent: I was dryin' my hands.
Jules: You're supposed to wash 'em first.
Vincent: You watched me wash 'em.
Jules: I watched you get 'em wet.
Vincent: I was washing 'em. But this shit's hard to get off. Maybe if I had Lava or something, I coulda done a better job.
Jules: I used the same fuckin' soap you did and when I got finished, the towel didn't look like no god-damn Maxi-Pad.

La Haine is a great film but they managed to screw up the DVD. White subtitles over a black and white film.. Bit bloody stupid if you ask me!

in no particular order:

Apocalypse now - heart of darkness, taken to 'Nam

Local hero - they came, they saw, they went away again

The Good the Bad and the Ugly groundbreaking even if it was a remake of a
Kurosawa film [dont remember which one]

Ran Kurosawa again

Dr Strangelove cold war armageddon

probably be different if you ask me next week.......
I excell at not giving a shit

I've never seen Local Hero, but I've been to the village and beach it was filmed at. On opposite sides of Scotland. The village being in the North East (on the Grampian coast), the beach being in the west (Arisaig, up by Mallaig- one of these incredibly, brilliantly white beaches of very fine sand, much dues to the cold water soft corals that grow up there. Very like some of the beaches in Co. Mayo in that respect.
