    Saw Chariots of Fire given the season that's in it for the first time recently. It's a good film, but not AMAZING.

    I think Scarface is average at best.

    Raging Bull. Honestly preferred Rocky.

    Star Wars. There. I've said it. Its ok. But the way people Talk about it, you'd think it was the only film ever made.

    Saw the original Charlie and the chocolate factory for the first time last Christmas. Thought it was a bit daft and not good at all.

    This!

    I actually prefer the new Tim Burton version, thought it was far closer to the book.

    The Rocky anthology for me. Honestly couldn't even force my way through them. Then again I do have a serious aversion to sport.

    Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid - not even a proper Western and they copied that bike scene from a silent movie.

    Fell asleep during Citizen Kane. Loved Metropolis though.

    Most of the big blockbuster types are so overhyped they can never live up to my expectations. I'm very suggestible :).

    I found Inception, and especially Avatar to be really tedious and convoluted.

    Oh thank god! I'm not the only one! I thought inception was crap, the whole concept for both movies was just to provide a framework to wrap kewl sheshul effex around.

    Drive.

    Everyone was banging on about this film this year. I thought it was OK.
    Didn't really do it for me.

    Teminater 2 and The Dark Knight,

    I seen John Carter last week, I was expecting it to be lousy, but it was actually an enjoyable film. It didn't deserve the derision it got.

    Citizen Kane.. Mildly interesting but I just don't understand the obsession film conessieurs have with it. 7/10 but far from greatest film ever

    Christ above, really!?

    Although I am absolutely in love with Harrison Ford. Rutger Hauter is unbelievably cool as well; he plays his role spectacularly. Also I love sci fi!

    'the searchers'...regarded as the best western ever made... i thought the dollars trilogy kicked the stuffing out of it...

    Citizen Kane
    Casablanca
    English Patient (way too many oscars)
    Inception (interesting concept made rediculous)

    Shawshank Redemption. I mean, it's good, but not the 'best move ever!1!'

    Loved that film to and he was genetically engineered to play that role, it was an inspired casting for Roy Batty. I loved the music as well.

    The Matrix.

    Woody Allen's movies are not that great. Overrated in my opinion. Especially his very firts movies... The same story on and on just different background but all the same. After years of work he finally made some not great but OK movies e.g. Vicky Cristina Barcelona or Small Time Crooks.

    I forgot about The English Patient. Six months of my life I can never have back.

    So long.

    So very, very, very, very long :(.

    Lad has a sweet factory.
    Big swing.

    Also as a business man he needs to address over elaborate and cost inefficient production methods. Also the marketing dept should be able to do better than a competition for a "free tour of the facility" Laughable.

    The new batman movie out now,The Dark Knight Rises.......I know its not a classic movie but everyone I know is goin about what a brilliant flick it is.

    I thought it was ok.........not a patch on the previous batman movie with Heath Ledger.
