Trading Places is a great call as are The Blues Brothers, Animal House, and American Werewolf in London, can't belief I missed it myself as I've personalized photo of Landis on the window sill in my man cave. A mate mixed the sound track for Burke & Hare (on which I've heard mixed reviews but not seen)and new I was a fan.

It's shit, AHH, clearly not the film Landis would have wanted to make, I wager.

(my opinion, no offence to anyone bizarrely liking the film tongue )

Yeah well, I know Barnaby Thompson (producer) re-cut the thing after Landis flew out, a scenario that rarely ends well.

Re: Films you thought were great....and still are

Commitments, watched that for the first and only time in Sauze Dou, Italian Ski resort. Went for 2 weeks and had a sunday off the ski's. We had a bar to ourselves with a projector on to a big white wall. Windows were open, lovely sunny day in the mountains, sun shining cant beat it. Sat with about 7 others drinking lager that gets you pissed twice as quick as it does normally laughing and loving that film. Fell over more the next day than the whole of the previous week.

No no no. Awful awful unfunny cringeworthy dross. Hate that film and everything about it. No.

Agreed, its dog sheet, Life of Brian still funny for me tho

You're both wrong! LIfe of Brian, is a, if not, THE, classic Python film.

Like the Usual Suspects, too. So there.

Re: Films you thought were great....and still are

Films like The Usual Suspects I can only really watch once, maybe twice. You can only be surprised one time, hopefully. What about that Morgan Freeman and Tim Robbins one, it's good but how does it end up on so many greatest lists?
