    I think Dumb & Dumber is about the only film I've watched in the last 25 years.

    But...if you want my favourite BBS username and avatar pic, it's you. Hands down.

    I think Goodfellas is perfect in every way - writing, acting, direction, soundtrack etc. I'll always watch it if it's on

    There was this time about the fifth time I saw it when I watched it and suddenly got what was happening... Ten seconds later I forgot and have never remembered since.

    Donny Darko was not a film I expected to see mentioned here, neither was Fear and Loathing. You’re either pretentious or an ex-film student.

    Highlander I enjoyed.

    The sequels were appalling and unnecessary.
