The greatest movie of all time is indisputably 'Stand by Me' (with The Breakfast Club at a close second place). It was our favorite as kids... in fact, my neighborhood buddies and I went on a similar adventure when we ran away from home.

a scene that's very dear to me

I don’t have a top ten list!

But! I will tell you my favorite movie of all-time!

Gold Rush - Charlie Chaplin

Now, I know all human sex is rape... but that excludes almost every movie ever made...

The scene with the dancing potatoes and eating the shoe.... amazing!!

Film doesn’t get better than that.

A good film indeed.. a desperate character, very well portrayed by Douglas.

I realised a long time ago, that I have a thing for films with a 70s retro soundtrack, or with modern songs of similar sound. It creates a party in my mind.

That's a good movie. Jean Reno is a fine fellow.

How about Les visiteurs?

I’m not sure.. I don’t like too much slap-stick a’la Monty Python, so maybe not, or maybe I have and I just don’t remember.

I’m a massive Marx Brothers fan, and have seen every one of their films.. I adore Groucho and Harpo in equal measure, but Harpo is just so compelling to watch.

I'll have to think about what I'd put for the 00s.

By the 10s I got sick of movies, the 10s was the worst decade for movies anyway.
