I've listed ones I would happily rewatch right now. But if you've never seen the Truman Show, I would watch that - but it was a one time only film for me, still great though.

MrsWembley Sun 16-Sep-12 23:16:29

Doctrine You're thinking of Out Of Sight. I was wondering whether to add that; it's certainly my favourite Clooney film!

MrsWembley Sun 16-Sep-12 23:18:12

I'm going to sleep on the rest of the list, dream the rest of it maybe?grin

I had Up in the Air as well, but bumped it for Die Hard <yippie-kai-yay> grin

One flew over the cuckoos nest is a must see.

JammySplodger Tue 18-Sep-12 09:36:15

That's also a very good film hugandroll but not sure I would want to watch it time and time again (think those that made my list I've watched 3, 4 5+ times and would happily sit down to watch tonight if there was nothing on telly). Ghostbusters and Breakfast At Tiffany's were also close contenders.

Life is Beautiful
Shawshank Redemption
Usual Suspects
When Harry Met Sally
The Breakfast Club
Planes, Trains & Automobiles
This Is England
Toy Story 3

not in that order apart from no. 1

JammySplodger Tue 18-Sep-12 09:47:32

Aah, A Planes Trains and Automobiles! Great!

I don't know Life is Beautiful, is it very good indeed?

LouMacca Tue 18-Sep-12 16:07:53

Oh Jammy it's a wonderful film, an absolute must smile
