    1) Notting Hill
    2) Pretty Woman
    3) Erin Brockovich
    4) The Sound of Music
    I'm seeing a rom-com tissue fest theme here to start with...! (OK, not with Brockovich, but definitely a theme)

    Aha! The first real tribute to classic Disney animation. Great choices

    Yes, I can see that with any of these, albeit, once I start watching I HAVE to watch all the way through, and don't often have that much time (we also have the Director's Cut DVDs, which are YAY long!!)

    Yup, it seems everyone's on board with just about anything from the Potter-verse But no Star Wars/Raiders/Pirates? That could be a touch controversial

    Ladies and Gentlemen, the definitive list. Bits cut and pasted as I am lazy. Going off the films I can just throw on with a big tub of popcorn (sweet of course, none of that salty shite)

    1) Star Wars IV-VI - Made me the man I am today. Jedi was a bit soppy, but the fun of New Hope and the Drama of Empire just forms into legend
    2) Shaun of the Dead - works as a ballsy Zombie movie and an incredibly funny comedy.
    3) Ghostbusters - i still quote this more than any other movie. WE CAME, WE SAW, WE KICKED ITS A**!
    4) Back To The Future - just so cool. I wanted to be Marty McFly (apart from the saucy bits with mother). Loved 2 as well, but hated 3.
    5) Cannonball Run - watched this so many times in the mid 80s that I wore the tape out. Have the remastered version that they show on ITV 3 permanently on my skybox. Stunts a plenty and Burt Reynolds at his best. Introduced the western world to Jackie Chan that leads us to....
    6) Police Story - Sit back, ignore the plot and just wonder in the glory of Jackie Chan and his crazy stunt team.
    7) Dumb and Dumber - just kills me. Makes me laugh till I ache
    8) Captain America: Winter Soldier - the perfect superhero film. Everything I wanted and more.
    9)Rita Sue and Bob Too - never plan on watching this, but I flick over, its on and Im gripped. Perfect reflection on the rougher side of Northern England in the mid-80s and funny as hell.
    10) Jurrasic Park 3. Controversial I know, but in my opinion its the best of all the Jurrasic Park films. Gets straight into the action unlike the science lectures of the others.

    Well, there we go. Could have added another 20 at least!

    There is no point in sweet popcorn. If you're going to eat something sweet, have a pastry. Or ice cream. Or any one of a million sweet treats. But popcorn without butter and salt is an affront to popcorn farmers everywhere, and the good earth that created its tender, golden ears.

    And now, back to your regularly scheduled popcorn movies list!

    Sorry Seth, but Dumb and Dumber? My son son had it on video and loved it, but about the only film I wouldn't sit and watch with him. Just made me cringe.

    BTTF is my favourite film franchise, bar none, and the only one where I like all of them equally. The links between the 3 are sheer genius and really get the grey matter working. The Wachowskis could learn a lot from BTTF about how to make sequels. I could have written better follow-ups to The Matrix. So many missed opportunities!

    At one with the masses!

    Interesting addition to the genre. Definitely an offbeat comedy, definitely watchable

    3) Ghostbusters - i still quote this more than any other movie. WE CAME,

    Two more dyed-in-the-wool classics (or, as I saw somewhere recently from a member of the Illiterati, dyed-in-the-wall)

    And two members of the action-comedy dream team!

    I'm still on the fence about this one. Parts of it ARE really funny. Others just make me cringe. Sorry.

    I'd more inclined to go with the first Iron Man, but this would certainly be up there.

    Having read the book avidly cover to cover, I found the original film a disappointment. The next 2 largely passed me by. But then, that's me!!

    But at least we know you DO like popcorn, of a kind

    Love the popcorn, but not the abomination Susan described. Colonials.....

    TF, I like your lads style! I think we would have got on very well.

    Simon, Rita Sue and Bob Too would either have you in stitches, or completely repulse you. Real crowd splitter, a bit like me!

    Debs, I wanted to like part 3, I really did but sadly I just missed me.

    very hard to pick 10 so not going to but I would probably throw Fools Gold, Paul and Matilda into the mix of enjoyable movies that dont test the brain cells too much.
