When talking about prison films, the Shawshank Redemption and The Green Mile always come up in the conversation. However, although these two films are really good, i personally think that Midnight Express doesn't get the amount of credit it should.
The fact that this film is based around a true story makes the whole thing more enjoyable. A lot of films that are based on true stories try too hard to push that extra bit harder for cinematic effect. This film doesn't do this, which makes it more realistic.

Since Febuary my Fifa 2004 game for the PS2 hasn't been loading and i get a 'Disc Read Error'. Since then, three other games including Splinter Cell, Colin McCrae and Hitman have failed to work.
Having read reviews about PS2 laser cleaners, I purchased one from Amazon and since then my PS2 has been in fine condition.
Definately better than going out and buying a whole new PS2!
