    It is a great feel-good film but perhaps a bit too cutesy to be a personal favourite. I think Jean de Florette and Manon des Sources are great films in their own right. Perhaps not my absolute favourite but I prefer them to Amelie (which I still enjoyed immensely).

    La Fille sur la Pont is another (more recent) film which I really enjoyed. Also the "three colours" trilogy of films were memorable.

    Santa Claus Conquers the Martians. 1pm Christmas Day, SBS.

    "So bad it's good" is a term bandied around a lot these days, but this Christmas turkey truly deserves it.

    Merry Christmas to all.

    Channel two movie poll - yuk

    Yuk - I watched the results of the Channel 2 movie poll. I thought the results sucked. So here are some of my favourites (not necessarily best just great to watch)

    Westerns

    - The Wild Bunch -director Sam Peckinpah -More action in the opening sequence than in the whole of many westerns.
    Shane - still looks magic

    Musicals
    - An American in Paris - Gene Kelly.
    Cabaret - Liza Minelli

    Drama

    - Fanny and Alexander - Ingmar Bergman - the long version -His last and best movie.
    To Kill a mockingbird - Gregory Peck was magic

    swashbuckler
    Scaramouche - they don't make them like that any more.
    Robin Hood - Errol Flynn at his best

    silent movie
    "The General" Buster Keating
    "The Gold rush" Chaplin

    Chick flicks
    "Thelma and Louise"
    "Little Women" take your pick as to which version.

    Comedy
    "Hulots holiday" Tati
    "Mon Oncle" Tati
    "The Seven year itch"
    "The Lady Killers" The pom version. most of the other Ealing comedies get a guernsey

    Blackploitation

    "Superfly." Totally amoral
    "Jackie Brown"
    "Shaft"

    Lad movies
    The two Bazza Mackenzie movies

    Rock and roll movies judged as movies

    4) The girl Can't Help it.
    5) Help

    Kungfu action
    1) Seven Samurai
    2) Chinese ghost Story II
    3) Drunken Master

    Action/thrillers excluding war movies

    1) Breathless - Godard
    2) Point Black - Lee Marvin is something else.


    War movies

    1) Paths of Glory - Kubrick
    2) Cross of Iron - Peckinpah

    Best title

    Three colours movies.

    A word of warning. There is something shown in "Three colours -Yellow" which
    does not work. I will not be more specific in case this comumn has family readers.

    than what happened in "Barbarella"

    Perfectly legitimate questions to ponder over and seek answers for at any time of the day.
    I like the way Kaitlin dismissed A/C's over the top reaction way back in post 9.
