    Actions like Bond/Die Hard etc are always good as are some sci fi's, but the absolute best for me is 2001. So open ended and beautiful, there are new thoughts and old comforts every time.

    Cabaret
    Wizard of Oz
    Singing in the Rain
    Manhattan
    2001
    Clockwork Orange
    Oklahoma would be, if it weren't such a shitty transfer


    Others-
    Abominable Dr Phibes
