Grease is an awesome, feel good film. Until the ending, (spoiler alert) a flying car? how does that fit into the narrative?

Hang on there! Have you seen Reservoir Dogs?

As for Cage he certainly has made some shit to pay the bills but Wild at Heart, Raising Arizona and Con Air are brilliant in their own ways.

Sandra Bullock you may have a point.

And for whoever dissed Repo Man, wash your mouth out with soap.

Yep, Repo Man is one of the great 80s movies.

Nic Cage recently made Mandy which is almost as good as Repo Man. Both are classics and essential cult viewing.

Blues Brothers.

Tried several times to watch it but lost interest after about half an hour.

Thinking about the last attempt to watch it, it was the first time I’ve ever walked out from watching a film on tv in my own house.

I did NOT know that - thanks for correcting me! I had no idea there were two completely unconnected films.

I'm referring to the book and film about repossessing body parts.

Random fact - The flying car sequence is where Robert Zemeckis and Bob Gale first got the idea for Back to the Future having seen it at a Chicago cinema in 1978.

I might have just made that up although it sounds plausible enough to tweet and get some retweets.

I have this problem with The Princess Bride, though I suspect that the problem is me, and not that massively overrated or s**t.
