    Films

    I was reading the Telegraph newspaper earlier and they had a "100 films to watch before you die", which I thought was a cliche....

    How about "100 films you'd die before you'd watch"!

    My number 1 would probably be (and I haven't seen it)

    Battlefield Earth, where you have to be a Zetan level 8 to understand it, and a cretin level 100 to watch it.

    Other than that, I'd include "The Cook the Thief His Wife & Her Lover". A film where Helen Miren gets her kit off.. oh how unusual. It's not big and it's not clever.... now stop it! In fact any Pete Greenaway film would be on my list.


    What others would you tear your eyes out to avoid?

    I've tried to watch Battlefield Earth..... twice. Most boring film I've ever had the off chance to encounter. I love sci-fi but blimey.

    My problem is that I would give any film a bash. Even the films from Asylum films (I am Omega, War of the Worlds 2, The Terminators). All very blatant ripoffs but most are worth a laugh at how cheap the productions are. I am Omega had the same zombie (I know it should be vampire type person) in all the scenes.

    I rather enjoyed Battlefield Earth.
    The only annoying thing was the camera man was drunk on every shot......

    Gone with the wind - tried watching it many years ago when it was showing in Leicester Square. At the interval I walked out thinking 'what a stupid ending' not realising that there was an interval

    recently - Valkyrie

    I was excited when it started in german with english subtitles.

    which then crossfaded into english......and the plot was shocking

    The Da Vinci Code.

    You know when someone comes up to you and says "oh you havent seen that film?! oh you have to watch it, its definitely something you'd like", its probably not for you.

    If that happens 3 or more times I'll refuse to watch it until I've had sufficient time to forget about the recommendations and then watch it.

    Anything with Nicolas Cage in it... except Raising Arizona but that's because of the a great cast such as Holly Hunter, oh and Wild at Heart, cos of the other great cast.. Wilem Defoe, Harry Dean Stanton and Laura Dern... actually the Rock is a good laugh too... oh forget it. I just don't like Nicolas Cage.
