Its hard to discribe my love for these movies, I watched them when I was young so i guess they have had a bigger impact than they would now but the shere magic, characters and spectacle is amazing. When i hear the opening score it still makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up.
I don't think Phillip Noyce has ever come close since to the classic that is Dead Calm, with only three main characters the director manages to crank up the sheer isolation and clausrophobia that only a mr hitchcock could achieve. I have seen this movie about 15 times and i never get bored of watching it.

It was Beauty that killed the Beast. For me this is Peter Jacksons finest hour, or I should say 2.5 hours. Knowing that he personally financed some of this movie so that Kong looked real. That New York city is the most digitally accurate representation ever done in digital.
King Kong is a sweeping magical epic picture that should stand the test of time.

My favourite scene of this movie as catagorised on the laser disc version is the galleria, by this I mean the canal chase. Taking six weeks to film and lasting about 10 minutes. Terminator 2 is thumping intelligent sci fi epic that only James Cameron could make. Pure class in every detail.
