Mine is Airforce One - I absolutely adore it Grin

I feel all patriotic, want to pledge allegiance to the flag (I am not American) and cheer throughout.

It helps that Harrison Ford was my teenage crush, I suppose.

Trading Places, with Groundhog Day a very close second.

I change my mind on this all the time, but at the moment I think it's Mad Max Fury Road.

MrsPresley · 27/03/2016 18:15

Billy Elliot, absolutely love it!

FiveSixPickUpSticks · 27/03/2016 18:16

Beaches

Jurassic Park or World War Z. Except at Christmas when it's Home Alone.

TarteAbricot · 27/03/2016 18:16

Waterloo Bridge

Or

The Red Shoes

both beautiful and incredibly sad

Jurassic Park (takes me back to being 11, terrified, in the cinema with me family) or an obscure 40s film Genevieve about the London-Brighton run. My family have old cars and the reality of it has me in stitches

Jack and Sarah

Jurassic Park. So good! Closely followed by Terminator 2, Jaws, and Aliens.

I love Interview With The Vampire too, one of Tom Cruise's few good performances.

SparklingBrook, I love ALN!!! I also love She's Having A Baby...

Grease

I have to choose a Marvel. I'd be betraying my geekiness if I didn't. Captain America:Winter Soldier. Although if they meet my expectations, I fully expect it to be taken over by Civil War.

Non-Marvel/superhero/sci-fi/fantasy...Se7en. Brilliant film.

It's a tie between The Railway Children and The Lion King.

I swear I have 'grown up' films too!

Sparklingbrook · 27/03/2016 18:21

YY SecretWish, how about St Elmo's Fire, that's my close second. Grin

CaptainCallisto · 27/03/2016 18:21

Wait. Not grown up like adult films. Just, not aimed at children Blush

FellOutOfBedTwice · 27/03/2016 18:23

Forgetting Sarah Marshall. Never fails to make me laugh.

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie · 27/03/2016 18:25

You are all wrong.

The Breakfast Club = officially the very best film ever made.

MrsSteptoe · 27/03/2016 18:26

Can't name one. The Dish, The Godfather, and To Kill a Mockingbird. A heartwarmer, a gem of storytelling and perfect direction, and a tearjerker.
"Miss Jean Louise? Miss Jean Louise! Stand up. Your father's passing."

Sparklingbrook · 27/03/2016 18:27

I do like The Breakfast Club and Pretty in Pink.

HookedOnHooking · 27/03/2016 18:27

Robin Hood Prince of Thieves Easter Blush

musicposy · 27/03/2016 18:28

^agree The Breakfast Club is utterly brilliant.

My favourite film in my formative years, though, was Fatal Attraction. I queued round the block many times to get in to the cinema and see it over and over again.

HookedOnHooking · 27/03/2016 18:28

Closely followed by The Breakfast Club, Ferris Bueller and Moulin Rouge

NoelHeadbands · 27/03/2016 18:28

trying I love Genevieve, 'hauling like brooligans!' Grin

Sparklingbrook · 27/03/2016 18:29

Oh and if anyone's updating their spreadsheets as a result of this thread I cried laughing at both of The Inbetweeners films, Blush Grin
