Used to see Les Gray (lead singer with Mud) in The Warrington occasionally.
    Saw John Inman a few times around the pubs Nottingnhill gate and Bayswater road.He flaunted his gayness in real life. Not a beer drinker though.

    Going through my DVD collection I struggled to get it to 20, let alone 10! These have all stood up to repeated viewings.

    Alien (1979)
    Amadeus (1985)
    Baader Meinhof Complex (G) (2008)
    Conspiracy (2001)
    Das Boot (ok this is for the TV miniseries, the 3.5 hour film cut is still good though) (G) (1981)
    Das Experiment (G) (2002)
    Donnie Darko (2001)
    Downfall (G) (2005)
    Dr Strangelove (1964)
    Exorcist (1974)
    Ferris Bueller's Day Off (1987)
    A Fish Called Wanda (1988)
    Get Carter (1971)
    Gone With the Wind (Vivien Leigh - such an amazing actress) (1940)
    Harvey (1950)
    Life of Brian (1979)
    Lives of Others (G) (2007)
    Moon (2009)
    Network (1976)
    Some Like It Hot (1959)
    Sunset Boulevard (1950)
    Terminator (1984)
    Threads (1984)
    Trainspotting (1996)
    Withnail & I (1987)
    The Wrong Trousers (1993)

    The Germans make some wonderful, hard-hitting and deeply immersive films (5 in my list, denoted by the the 'G' - six if you count Conspiracy 'cos it's full of Nazis)

    Blade Runner.
    Shawshank Redemption.
    Ex Machina.
    Apocalypse Now.
    The Third Man.
    Spirited Away.
    A Night At The Opera.
    No Country For Old Men.
    Blue Velvet.
    Recent showings on the box reminded me of three other favourites:

    Arrival.
    Day of the Jackal.
    Groundhog Day.
