Ah cool. Yeah thought it was odd because Casey is releasing that film with Joaquin Phoenix. Casey was in Gone baby gone though, very good he was too.

Have you ever seen the 2 Bad News films? I always found them much funnier than This is Spinal Tap ( which in itself is very funny! ). Although I guess they`re classed as TV episodes as much as movies thinking on it. I`m tempted to work out a top 50 myself now...

It was a brilliant movie, and has resurrected Ben Affleck in Hollywood nobody would touch him after the Fallout with that woman of his

Can anyone beat my A level film teacher, who had a spreadsheet of every film he had ever seen, along with it's director, date of release, relevant studios, where and when he had seen it, and an out-of-ten rating for each time he had seen it?

I said at the top of this page that in hindsight I should've added Return of the Jedi :(
Never been huge on Jaws, I'll blame that on seeing it at an early age and not revisiting it. I'll stick 'er on my Lovefilm.
LoTR I was never a fan of. I saw the movies, sure, but never really gave a shit.
But yes, Anchorman should be on there, too.
