Not a bad list, I'd happily sit down in front of almost any of those, with the possible exception of Kill Bill: Vol II, I thought it was gash.

Not a bad mix as Inchy says, i'd like to present a list myself but there too many years to get through!

Inchy - I haven't heard the descriptive term 'gash' for ages, shall remember to use that one again at work on Monday when responding to the Boss.

Unfortunately, my list would take too long and the early years would include the Sound of Music and Mary Poppins, ruining my street cred.

I have 'Tron' listed as the best film of 1982. Any credibility I had went straight out the window there!
