    So, which films remind everyone of childhood? Those films that you watched over and over again, no matter how crap you know they are now. Godzilla [remake, so what ], Clash of the Titans, Power Rangers The Movie and Independence Day are mine. I'm sure there must be a few more.


    Also my mum was a massive Van Damme fan so I by proxy ended up watching loads of his films. Bloodsport and Lionheart :heart:

    Quite a lot of childhood films. Too many to remember. Many of them cartoons, and some of them the usual violent kung-fu action blow up stuff kind of films.

    I miss the good old days...

    Yeah, godzilla was great! I love the madison square garden scene where matthew broderick is being chased by those baby godzillas! I used to video tape all these films when I was 9 or 10, and re-watch them from time to time. I remember this film, flight of the navigator, which introduced me to sci-fi. I watched it last year again, and even though it was crap, it was very nostalgic. Obviously not to mention the classic disney films!

    Breakfast at Tiffany's, My Fair Lady, La Belle et la Bête (1946), Gone with the Wind, Rear Window and Bringing Up Baby.

    But yes, anything with Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly, Catherine Deneuve, Vivien Leigh, Jean Harlow or Brigitte Bardot is pure GOLD.

    Machete or Invictus, I don't really like the others on that list, Avatar was half-decent but you've already seen it.

    Invictus. I assume you've seen Avatar on the big screen, in which case seeing it again on a tinier one isn't going to do anything for you. A nightmare on elm street and [Rec]2 do not stack up as well as their predecessors. The rest are passable films, but are nothing special, whereas Invictus is.

    In other news, I just watched Wall Street again. ******* awesome film.
