Art Garfunkel sang about that, didn't he? "Bright Pies" or something.

Brilliant, Mr D

The Shawshank Redemption, possibly the best film ever made.
Amazed how often this film tops peoples list. Seems to rest on the very unlikely premise that a prisoner can tunnel his way out of his cell with the tunnel entrance covered by a poster.

Where did the spoil go?

Did they never search the cell over all those years?

How come the poster seems pristine after being up and down all those times?

Or am I missing the point by being so prosaic and refusing to suspend disbelief?

Glad somebody agrees with me about The English Patient, Cheerio

No, you're just forgetting that it's Hollywood.

Follow this advice from the International rules of manhood

It is OK for a man to cry ONLY under the following circumstances:

(a) When a heroic dog dies to save its master.
(b) The moment Angelina Jolie starts unbuttoning her blouse.
(c) After wrecking your new Maserati.
(d) One hour, 12 minutes, 37 seconds into "The Crying Game".

Not a film, but very poignant.

CHaps blubbing whilst watching films: all very metrosexual and 1990s new modern man. Don't hold with it myself. Closest that I ever came was laughing so hard in "The Life of Brian" but that's not blubbing really.

OK, the reconciliation sequence in 'Cinema Paradiso' (long version) and 'The Land Girls' bittersweet finale.
There!

three scene's from three movie's that always "get to me",

when the engine finally starts to pick up rev's in FLIGHT OF THE PHEONIX.(the proper version!!!)

when the band strike up "la marseillaise" in CASABLANCA.

when clint eastwood breaks a dead jeff bridges cigar at the finish of THUDERBOLT AND LIGHTFOOT.

now there's proper movie making

Good choices Mr Fish

Yeah you're right, Zoom, I should make allowances for anything that comes out of the dream factory I suppose.

Surprised my missus and myself continually losing the plot during The Santa Clause, with Tim Allen (I must have massive issues around Father Christmas)

but

The final Scene, in the factory, of An Officer and A Gentleman gets me everytime.
