This began as a comment for an entry in Mike’s blog, but then I selfishly decided I’d keep it for myself instead.
Last week finally got to watch Tom Cruise running lots and doing very little else in War of the Worlds. I’d been looking forward to this for ages, and then it was such utter bobbins that we had to watch a good film afterwards to try and forget about it. I picked six DVDs and Claire was to have the final say – the way we choose what to watch so very often in fact.
Given the circumstances, this shortlist could be considered my de facto greatest movies of all time. Or at least greatest movies that I have the DVD of. Not sure I’d completely agree with that – I chose one of them purely for it’s short running time, and avoided some I’d seen recently or didn’t think there was any chance of Claire actually picking! – but it’s definitely not without its merits. And quite diverse too.

And the winner is….?
