    Hello nice people,

    Wasn't sure if this was the right place to place here but I thought that if we put down our 10 fave flicks - we might find a few treasures here and there from each other.

    In no order.

    1-Superman Returns
    2-Somewhere in Time
    3-Superman III
    4-Highlander
    5-Brazil
    6-Cinema Paradiso
    7-The Man Who Fell to Earth
    8-Roman Holiday
    9-Requiem for a Dream
    10-Journey to the Far Side of the Sun
