Your Top Ten FilmsPosted on: 09 October 2008 by Gareth Hargreaves
50connect readers share their top ten movies, and we want to know your favourite films.
Everybody loves a good movie, whether you go to the cinema each week to catch the newest flicks or adore those black and white classics.
During the credit crunch, with winter's cold dark days ahead, getting a DVD is an inexpensive, entertaining and cosy way to spend an evening. Yet with rental websites and online stores offering so much choice, how do you decide what to watch?
We asked you, 50connect readers, for your favourite films. Your top tens provide plenty of inspiration, from action, horror and thrillers to comedy, romance and musicals, foreign films and literary adaptations. Below are some of your lists.

A top ten is difficult to choose, however in no particular order:
Lassie Come Home - Roddy McDowell version
Goodbye Mr Chips - Robert Donat version
Bride of Frankenstein - Karloff et al
Stagecoach - might as well pick one of John Wayne's many westerns
The Nutty Professor - Jerry Lewis version
Ghost In The Shell - one of the best Anime ever
Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels
Without A Clue - Michael Caine and Ben Kingsley - hilarious
Batman Returns - Michael Keaton made the part his own in this and Danny Devito was plain scary
Hopscotch - possibly the best performance ever by Walter Matthau
My top ten:
Greyfriars Bobby - original version
The House on Garibaldi Street
Cinema Paradiso - Italian film
The Counterfeiters - Austrian/German film
Lawrence of Arabia
Merchant of Venice - Al Pacino
Now that I have retired, I am a regular at our local over 50s cinema shows. What a wonderful way to relax.
Far from the Madding Crowd - Alan Bates and Terence Stamp
The Go Between
Withnail and I
Italian Job - the original obviously
National Lampoon Animal House
Monty Python and The Holy Grail
Women in Love
Napoleon - 1927
The Third Man
Singin' in the Rain
Wages of Fear
North By Northwest
Some Like It Hot
Pirates of the Caribbean
Lord of the Rings
Jazz Singer - Neil Diamond version
Quite varied but depends on what mood I am in.
Sound of Music
Lord of the Rings
Captain Corelli's Mandolin
Lost in Translation
Pirates of the Carribean
