film lists

I read in the London Paper last night that the London Film Festival’s currently running until 17 October and as part of the fun they’re encouraging folks to submit their favourite film lists. It’s an old game but thought I’d have crack at the following categories. If you can suggest alternative categories (what about horror movies, historical, involving sport etc?) or better films than I’ve come up with then please feel free. Maybe this’ll stimulate a few responses…or not!

Violent drama

The Godfather I and II


Pulp Fiction

Kill Bill I and II

Silence of the Lambs

or what about…

War Films

Schindler’s List

Saving Private Ryan

The Cruel Sea

The Great Escape

Where Eagles Dare

something a little lighter maybe..

Rom Com

Something’s Gotta Give

4 Weddings and a Funeral

Gregory’s Girl

Annie Hall


what about ..

Best of Brit stuff


My Left Foot

Brassed Off

Local Hero

Full Monty

by way of contrast…

Small Town Americana

Cool Hand Luke




The Last Seduction

Bad Guys…Good Guys?

The Shawshank Redemption

Once Upon a Time In America

One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s nest

LA Confidential

Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid

and finally….

You’re Having a Laugh

Life of Brian


There’s Something About Mary

Dirty Rotten Scoundrels


Over to you guys. Surely there are lots of categories to do a list on – car movies, buddy movies, strong leading ladies, sci -fi, cartoons, special FX, westerns, cops, fighting scenes, foreign language, sexiest, intelligible Sly Stallone movies etc. Come on punks, make my day.
