Welcome to our blog.
We have decided to watch through the Top 100 films of the noughties, as ranked by the Times. You can have a look at the list here, and maybe join in if you want.
It is quite an eclectic mix of films, and we have very different tastes in films. You can see our thoughts on movies below:
Tom I’m a bit of a film nerd, own hundreds upon hundreds of DVDs and read film magazines every month. I’m the kind of guy that actually listens to the commentaries on DVDs! I love horror films – especially the 80s – and am into cult films. My favourite films include Pulp Fiction, Dawn of the Dead, Goodfellas, Leon, Aliens, Terminator, Evil Dead, Nightmare on Elm Street, This Is Spinal Tap and so forth.
Tierna I’m the opposite to Tom in the sense that I really don’t take film watching very seriously. I enjoy watching a good comedy after a busy day for a bit of light relief & like watching a chick flick here and there. I’m not a fan of blood & gore but appreciate a good thriller. I love anything that’s creatively done; perhaps a low budget movie or something experimental. Some of my favourite films I’ve seen recently are Etre Et Avoir (which will eventually feature in our top 100), 500 days of summer and the amazing animation effects in Avatar.
We’re planning on watching each of the films, starting at 100 and working our way right through to number one. This could take a while!
Oh… and by the way, we made the banner on the homepage ourselves.
