Lea "s-h-a-m"
 
Blade Runner (The Director's Cut) [DVD] [1982]
Blade Runner (The Director's Cut) [DVD] [1982]
"Atmospheric, evocative, visually stunning with superb acting and brilliant dialogue.  No more to be said"
2001: A Space Odyssey [1968] [DVD]
2001: A Space Odyssey [1968] [DVD]
"How many viewings will it take before you entirely understand the plot. Unless you've read the books, that is. The only thing letting it down is the drawn out sequence when Bowman travels to infinity."
Jaws (2 Disc Special Edition) [DVD]
Jaws (2 Disc Special Edition) [DVD]
"From beginning to end there is no other movie that will keep you as absorbed as this one does.  Outstanding performances from the three main cast members working with a script that is second to none."
Lost in Translation [DVD] [2004]
Lost in Translation [DVD] [2004]
"It leaves me still wondering about the 2 main characters and where their relationship will go long after the movie has ended"
The Elephant Man [DVD] [1980]
The Elephant Man [DVD] [1980]
"Hurt displays his superb acting once again as the tragic Joseph Carey Merrick, making the character  spiritually uplifting but ultimately tragic.  Hopkins, of course, his usual brilliant self."
Charlie Chaplin: City Lights [DVD]
Charlie Chaplin: City Lights [DVD]
"My first of two Chaplin picks.  The tramp gets himself into hilarious but ultimately futile escapades.  It must still surely be the greatest ending in cinematic history.  Absolutely delightful."
Braveheart (2 Disc Digitally Remastered Special Edition) [1995] [DVD]
Braveheart (2 Disc Digitally Remastered Special Edition) [1995] [DVD]
"Mel Gibson demonstrating, yet again, his superb acting ability as well as his directorial craftsmanship.  Great cast, great music, great cinematography and a great script.  Simply Stunning."
For A Few Dollars More  (Special Edition) [DVD]
For A Few Dollars More (Special Edition) [DVD]
"I 'd give this one a slight edge over Good, Bad and The Ugly, making it, in my opinion, the best western ever made.  You don't have to be a fan of westerns to enjoy this film, as I for one am not."
Gladiator [DVD]
Gladiator [DVD]
"A defining moment in Crowe's career and a brilliant  Commodus played by Joaquin Phoenix.  Magnificently captures the essence of the Roman empire."
Her [Blu-ray]
Her [Blu-ray]
"Such a wonderful tale with as genuine a relationship as you can get. Scarlett is without doubt the sexiest woman alive, even when she doesn't appear."
The Abyss (Two-Disc Special Edition) [DVD] [1989]
The Abyss (Two-Disc Special Edition) [DVD] [1989]
"Awesome.  Would be truly great in 3D.  Has everything, adventure, excitement, emotion,  great story and great visuals."
The Green Mile [DVD] [1999]
The Green Mile [DVD] [1999]
"One of the greats,  which is all the more surprising to me because it has Tom hanks in it.  Undoubtedly his best film by far.  But of course the real star is Micheal Clarke-Duncan a giant of a man.  Touching."
Talented Mr Ripley [DVD] [2000] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]

Planes, Trains & Automobiles [1987] [DVD]
Planes, Trains & Automobiles [1987] [DVD]
"Okay, it may not be as funny as Holy Grail or Life of Brian, but it does have some very good 'laugh out loud' moments that make the ending all the more heartrending.  A great film for may reasons."
Cloverfield [DVD]

"One of the best sci fi movies to date.  Totally absorbing"

Leaving Las Vegas [DVD] [1996]
Leaving Las Vegas [DVD] [1996]
"An extremely poignant tale.  This film I guess has a surprising (i.e. not your typical hollywood finale) but fitting conclusion.   And what else would you buy an alcoholic but a hip flask.  1st class."
Schindler's List [DVD] [1994]
Schindler's List [DVD] [1994]
"A truly remarkable man during a period that really depicted what it is to be persecuted and what human beings are truly capable of doing to one another.  Utterly brilliant."
