Anyway...my favourite for these times is The Curse of the Jade Scorpion...I know it was not a great commercial success but I just love the 1940's atmosphere and the style of the humour...plus I am a bit in love with Helen Hunt in this film...

Takes me back to my 8th birthday, and watching it twice in a row in the cinema cos we'd missed the first 10 mins by queueing!
And it's all about good versus evil!
EDIT: Oh crap.... Just realised I've given my age away..... LOL!!!

Burn After Reading
Osbourne Cox: And you're my wife's lover?
Ted Treffon: [shaking his head] No.
Osbourne Cox: Then what are you doing here?
Osbourne Cox: I know you. You're the guy from the gym.
Ted Treffon: I'm not here representing HardBodies.
Osbourne Cox: Oh, yes. I know very well what you represent.
Osbourne Cox: You represent the idiocy of today.
Ted Treffon: No, I don't represent that either.
Osbourne Cox: Yeah. You're the guy at the gym when I asked about that moronic woman.
Ted Treffon: She's not a moron.
Osbourne Cox: You're in league with that moronic woman. You are part of a league of morons.
Ted Treffon: No. No.
Osbourne Cox: Oh, yes. You see, you're one of the morons I've been fighting my whole life. My whole f****** life. But guess what... Today, I win.

My default films when I am feeling a bit 'bleh' (yes, that is a technical term) are Blade Runner, Lord of the Rings or any Studio Ghibli movie (Normally Howls Moving Castle or Spirited Away)

Yes! That's in my top 3 favourite films. What a film. I'm not much of a Brad Pitt fan, but he's superb as the idiot gym instructor. "You think that's a Schwinn?"
