    Shoot the Moon is one of those films I'd LOVE to see again. I saw it theatrically and once or twice on videotape. There is one scene in the film which feels implausible and out of place, and I had a problem with what I consider a "lady and the tiger" ending
    upon initial viewing -- however, this movie just lingers with me.

    I have Angel Heart on DVD and I thought I had Birdy, but it turns out I don't. I'm almost positive I have a WS VHS of Come See the Paradise here somewhere.

    In order of merit:


    1.Midnight Express (1978) ***1/2
    2.Mississippi Burning (1988) ***1/2
    3.Bugsy Malone (1976) ***
    4.The Life of David Gale (2003) ***
    5.Pink Floyd The Wall (1982) **1/2


    Apart from having ANGEL HEART (1987) and THE COMMITMENTS (1991) still unwatched on VHS(!), sad to say, I've missed out on several of Parker's films through the years: both FAME (1980) and SHOOT THE MOON (1982), for instance, are continually aired on TCM UK - and yet I've never gotten round to watching them...[​IMG]

    At one time, Midnight Express, The Wall, Birdy and Angel Heart were all among my favorites. Now I see him as rather inconsistent. Still love The Wall, but mainly because I'm a Pink Floyd nut.
