Here are a few favourites for you to watch now

Dances With Wolves

A sheer delight! Watch it with no interruptions!
I have always felt for the historic plight of the native American Indians but never has their story been told with such emotion and grace. A movie which I can truly become engrossed and at one with. I also feel that this was one of Costner's finest performances and the movie worked so well as no part of it was rushed during filming.

Good Will Hunting

Convincing performances and a touching movie.
Convincing performances and a touching movie. The psychological aspect of this movie provides me with emotion and compassion for the leading characters and such a great role for Robin Williams to play (similar to his performance in Awakenings). A movie with a great story line and quite believably touching with a not so predictable end. Superbly executed and on par with A Beautiful Mind.

The Italian Job

Hang on a minute lads, I've got an idea - er... er...
With an archetypally Michael Caine (just how we like him) as that crazy Cockney capered cheeky chap Charlie Croker, playing the roll like no one else ever could. This movie no doubt earns the votes from us Londoners who love the rhyming slang and sly subtle humour. One of Britain's all time greatest movie classics. Forget any remake!

Life Of Brian

The origin source of many comedy sketches.
There can be no other movie with such comedic satire campaigned at religious intolerance, when Brian is mistaken for a prophet and forced to become the Messiah. Stupidly funny and a monumental piece of work for the Monty Python team. Costing about $4m to produce and grossing $650m on year 25, I guess it is a comedy cult classic.

The Way

Based on a true story full of sentiment.
Heartfelt, sad, uplifting and with a hint of humour, this movie mixes the emotions, when a father goes to France to collect the body of his son who died while traveling the "El camino de Santiago" and then decides to take the pilgrimage himself. This exact same walk of some 1800km is something I plan to do for charity to raise money for art projects and the homeless.

The Magnificent Seven

McQueen, Bronson, Coburn, Dexter and Vaughn.
An all star cast and an all round great western with Yul Brynner playing the part of Chris Larabee Adams heading up the team of gunfighters asked to protect a small Mexican village that is repeatedly getting robbed by the ruthless Calvera (Eli Wallach). Plenty of gun slinging and horse riding through the Mexican terrain.

A Beautiful Mind

Based on the true story of John Forbes Nash Jr.
A biopic of the meteoric rise of John Forbes Nash Jr. a mathematical prodigy able to solve problems that baffled even the greatest of minds and how he overcame years of suffering through schizophrenia to win the Nobel Prize. Brilliantly directed by Ron Howard and starring Russell Crowe, Ed Harris and Jennifer Connelly.

The Godfather 1972

The clandestine empire of "Don" Vito Corleone.
Mario Puzo's trilogy directed by Francis Ford Coppola must be one of the all time ever classics. With an all star cast in the first movie and then the introduction of Robert De Niro in the second. Many debate which of the three is the best, though I can't see why as you need all of them to complete the story. Enjoy all 549 minutes of it - just over 9 hours!

The Godfather II 1974

The Godfather III 1990

War Horse

Love the magical connection to horses.
Young Albert enlists to serve in World War I after his beloved horse is sold to the cavalry. Albert's hopeful journey takes him out of England and to the front lines as the war rages on. Showing the importance of horses in WWI this movie is heart wrenching with the surprise reunion of Albert and his beloved horse. With a true sense of realism this is a captivating story.

Chitty Chitty Bang Bang

I've often been referred to as Caractacus Potts.
A down-on-his-luck inventor turns a broken-down Grand Prix car into a fancy vehicle for his children, and then they go off on a magical fantasy adventure to save their grandfather in a far-off land. A good feel movie for all ages and a classic collection of sing a long songs, with a faultless performance from Sally Ann Howes.

Serendipity

A stunning romantic movie with reality.
Jonathan Trager and Sara Thomas met while shopping for gloves in New York. Though buying for their respective lovers, the magic was right and a night of Christmas shopping turned into romance. Jon wanted to explore things further but Sara wasn't sure their love was meant to be. They decided to test fate by splitting up and seeing if destiny brought them back together...

Toy Story

We all love the imagination of being a kid.
Andy loves to be in his room, especially his doll named "Woody". But, what do the toys do when Andy is not with them, they come to life. Woody, Buzz Lightyear and all the toy characters are fantastic in this movie. OK a kids film but with some adult humour and amazing animation which pioneered the future of Pixar. Not fond of the sequels, just the original Toy Story for me.

I have 1000's of series episodes and movies... so any requests?
