Starlight Cinema

What a thrill. Nokia is sponsoing a cinema under the stars and what this means is that I am enjoying two weeks of films in the open air. Admittedly, the choice of films isn't great - focussing mostly on blockbuster hits like Spiderman, Matrix Reloaded and the Lord of the Rings trilogy (duology?) - but at least it's a fun enough selection. If it were up to me? It'd be a mix of old and new.

What would I pick? Classics like Citizen Kane, Roman Holiday (let's face it, most Audrey Hepburn films would be a shoe-in). Big theme nights like the Star Wars trilogy, Indy Jones. Great one-off individual movies like Ferris Bueller's (hey, brat-pack night: throw in the Breakfast Club and Fast Times at Ridgemond High). Modern Classics like Goodfella's and Forrest Gump should be included. Also great films that never really made it big but are great to watch: Strictly Ballroom and Heathers. Foreign Language films: Cyrano de Begerac and Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon. A Jodie Foster night, of course: Taxi Driver and Silence of the Lambs.

These would be my choice. E picks: Terminator 2, Titanic, The Elephant Man, Love Story, Final Destination, Silence of the Lambs, The Shawshank Redemption.
