If only the critics were as honest.

Most of the films mentioned.

Oh fuck off Hodgson.

He’s walked back to his youth and hymned the young man he was with knowing affection, despite the rain of bitter knowledge manhood has inevitably brought him.

not hate, that too strong... bit dull probably more apt.

Cinema Paradiso

A man may fight for many things. His country, his friends, his principles, the glistening tear on the cheek of a golden child. But personally, I'd mud-wrestle my own mother for a ton of cash, an amusing clock and a sack of French p*rn.

Found a copy of The Blues Brothers.  Must be 15 years since I last watched it.  I got as far as them meeting the nun before I was laughing uncontrollably.

It's one of the top ten comedies and one of the top 10 musicals of all time.

Watched it with my eldest lad the other day, pointing out all the legends.  Still holds up, great film.  John Belushi was some talent.
