    "Fairy Tale: A True Story" http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0119095/

    This well evokes the time around WW1 when anything seemed possible, with spiritualists and theosophists running around doing their stuff and Conan Doyle putting his reputation on the line to defend a kiddies' prank. Of course, in the film it's more than that, so the second part of the title needs to be taken with a pinch of salt. I'm not quite sure if I like the way the plot concludes, but the fairies are pretty cool. One of those poignant, bitter-sweet stories about what children leave behind when they grow up.

    Only guilty as it's a kid's film and a bit girly.

    I would have to say the LOtR movies...
    They deviate from the books (which I like) to some extent... but I still like them.
    There are parts of the movies that irritate me asthetically as well as things that they left out whisc anoy me, but all in all I really liked the movies.
    Grey Mouser, you are not alone in your enjoyment of Return of the King. :D

    Fellini's Casanova, starring Donald Sutherland in the title role.

    It had some good things about it, but it was in many ways unpleasant, too. I don't think it's successful. I still think of it fondly for reasons I don't understand. Fellini made better movies than this one.

    Well, for this forum Return of the King surely must count as a guilty pleasure.

    Eowyn is probably my favourite character in the movie and I kinda like the OTT moment where Legolas takes out a Mumakhil plus crew all by himself and Gimli says 'Well that still only counts as one.'

    It's something about Jenny Agutter and those red bloomers.
    Walkabout, Equus, China 9, Liberty 37... Jenny Agutter sans red bloomers. Much more tasty. :)
    I don't feel guilty about those! :lol:

    All wonderful and interesting choices!


    I loved when the used to play the Omega Man on tv at midnight.
    The Jesus Christ aspect was really fantastic!




    As for Zardoz, is John Boorman still directing, he would make a great guest director for Elric!

    Transformers: The Movie

    I still have the copy that my parents bought for me when I was six. :oops:

    On a more adult level, it would have to be Donnie Darko. I've got the original version and the director's cut.

    I loved Zardoz when I first saw it but haven't managed to pick up a copy just yet.

    As for Jenny Agutter, I thought she looked pretty good in Logan's Run. ;)

    Mine are:

    The Omega Man-Charlton Heston

    The Sword and the Sorcerer-Lee Horsley,Richard Lynch

    Zardoz-Sean Connery
    1 and 3 are great movies. Chuck Heston in TOM as Jesus Christ shedding his blood to save mankind - wicked! Haven't seen TS&TS yet - keep waiting to see it in the bargain buckets or (very) cheap on eBay.

    My guilty pleasure is Hawk the Slayer. :D
