    OK, So now favourite film for when you have the blues...

    ...that's if you suffer from the blues of course and are not one of those bl00dy irritating cheerful bu66ers...and breathe...


    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...

    Star Wars!

    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!!!

    Osbourne Cox: And you're my wife's lover?
    Ted Treffon: [shaking his head] No.
    Osbourne Cox: Then what are you doing here?
    [pause]
    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.
    [pause]
    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)

    Don't have a default "when I am down" film..

    One of my all time favourits though is "Silent Running" makes me well up a bit, as does "Ghost" which i saw in the cinima when it came out.
