    whaaaat? did you see the same film as me? there's loads of really dark humour in it.

    Starship Troopers is getting on now too, that's still *** tremendous, as is my fave vampire film Near Dark. i grew up on Hammer films, at about 6 or 7 i had a firmly entrenched love of female vampires : fangs and cleavage, nowt better in my opinion.
    saw my first full frontal nudie girlie in Blood on Satan's Claw when i was about 8 or 9, lol, a life changing moment :-D


    edit : how come this site helpfully hyperlinks "Starship Troopers" for readers, but not "nudie girlie"? Someone get this changed! :-D

    As said before, See no evil, hear no evil is a classic. '' Fuzzy wuzzy was a woman?''- cracks me up every time!!

    Also as a kid i loved 'Flight of the Navigator', 'Stand by me' and 'The Burbs''. All amazing films!!

    The Fuzzy Wuzzy line is awesome, me and my bro still use that line on a regular basis, just to bring on a random giggle!!!

    Another classic line out of that film has to be when the woman asks if they have any last requests and he says.....' i suppose a f*cks out of the question'

    I wonder what it would be like if they did a remake of Warriors. I wouldnt want it to ruin the memory of the old one but think with the correct Writer it could be good!

    Depends, is Michael Bay going to direct?

    D12 Fight music video is a little bit like a modern Warriors, I guess.

    The original Star Wars film , Blade runner (original release) and one that probably won't get listed by anybody else Silent Running, Bruce Dern and two robots Huey and Duey.
    Also the Bourne trilogy.

    My Grandad knew Stan Laurel, he had letters and props from films that he sent him. Unfortunately all of these were lost when his house was demolished!

    These. Another Mel Brooks fan over here. My parents brought me up with those films. Every time I hear "Puttin' on the Ritz" I start uncontrollably laughing because of Young Frankenstein. Don't forget Gene Hackman as the blind hermit too!

    Dad & I both bought each other The Producers (original version, not remake) on DVD for Christmas without knowing the other was doing the same!

    Other favourites for the list:

    The Goonies
    Flight of the Navigator
    The Never Ending Story
    Blues Brothers (and even Blues Brother 2000, but it's not as good)
    Sinbad & the Eye of the Tiger (I love the bad special effects, it's always on at Easter / Christmas - keep an eye out!)

    ... and all Disney animated films. :)
