*1. A Hard Day's Night - A
2. Help! - B+
3. Superman II - B


4. The Knack, and How to Get It - B-
5. Superman III - C
(This is in no way a good film and was a terribly misguided idea, but I'd still watch this well before rewatching some of the terrible recent comic films like Daredevil, Hulk, The Punisher, Judge Dredd, etc.)

Own: 1 (would buy a suped up edition of Help!)

I've seen the Musketeer films and Robin and Marian but it's been too long. Interested in  How I Won the War.

I've only seen a few of his films, and the only one that I really like is an absolute classic:

Gawd I love that movie!

The Return of the Musketeers (1989)
Superman II (1980)
Butch and Sundance: The Early Days (1979)
Robin and Marian (1976)
The Four Musketeers (1974)
Juggernaut (1974)
The Three Musketeers (1973)

Seen the above.

The Three Musketeers is probably my favorite film of all time, nearest and dearest to my heart. I saw it about 7 times theatrically, and about 5 times since on tape/DVD. Saw The Four Musketeers about 5 times theatrically, couple more times on tape/DVD.
