3 decades - 30 films

Right, since my fourth decade is starting in just a few days, I thought I'd look back to the ones I've already seen. First is a list of films, from the 70s, 80s and 90s, that I like, err, or just remember for some reason.

Other things worth exploring in a list?? Gimme some suggestions if you feel like it. ;-)

The list, in no particular order.

Shawshank Redemption
My favourite film ever.
Annie
I vividly remember seeing this film with my aunt at the Palads cinema in Århus. I loved it, and I even had an Annie paper doll.
E.T.
As far as I remember, the first film I saw at the cinema. I loved all things E.T. - I had a t-shirt that I would have worn all the time if my mum would have let me!
Life of Brian
Always look on the bright side of life!
The Usual Suspects
Pure genius.
Fifht Element
I saw this at the cinema...5 or 6 times. Love the imagery and that aria from Lucia di Lammermoor is just so beautiful!
Space Balls
We stop for noone.
Star Wars OT
Well, d'uh!
The Phantom Menace
Ok, it has its flaws, but it IS Star Wars.
Pulp Fiction
Actually not completely sure why...
Schindler's List
I don't normally cry over movies, but you know...
Saturday Night Fever
It has disco, what other reason do you need?
Superman
It's Superman!
Clerks
Just get on with Clerks 2 already, how long do we have wait??
Indiana Jones
It's Harrison Ford...
Bugsy Malone
I thought this film was so cool. And I remember watching a making-of about this film. So great.
Toy Story
What's not to love?
Blues Brothers
Great music, great car chase.
Close Encounters of the Third Kind
A mountain made of mashed potatoes. Genius.
Il Postino
This film almost made me cry too. And they speak Italian and it's set in a beautiful location.
Good Will Hunting
I like smart people in films. Excellent performance by Robin Williams.
Labyrinth
I loved this film so much. The girl Sarah seemed so brave and David Bowie was fucking scary! Those teeth!
Dead Poet's Society
Another one with Robin Williams being brilliant.
Taxi
French and fast cars.
The Muppet Movie
Muppets!!
War Games
One of those 'teenagers save the day' films. And with Matthew Broderick. I think I thought he was cute back then...
The Abyss
When I saw this the first time I was completely awed by the water snake coming into the underwater rig...
Man on the Moon
Jim Carey in a serious, but funny, role. And it has music by REM. Instant hit with me.
The Mosquito Coast
This is kinda frightening, but Harrison Ford is excellent.
Neverending Story
That big flying animal/dragon type thing that looks like a dog...
