    Well, what's old school?

    Here's 2 really oldies. But classics in my view. Kids may not like them.

    The Sting
    &
    Gunfight at the OK coral

    the big Lebowski is a classic, one of my favourites.
    the matrix.
    true romance.
    the usual suspects.

    I just watched the goonies last night for the first time since a kid.

    I'd be surprised if today's kids didnt enjoy classics like this.

    The music for "The Sting" is a good reminder of old snooker days if your missing your snooker.

    Let us know how you got on Gary

    A film I had never seen until last night was The Breakfast Club. Not sure what I was expecting but was a bit darker than I expected. Took a while to get going but great 80s nostalgia with the music and clothes alone. Emilio Estevez Before he became the Mighty Duck man

    Films you've not seen that are considered classics.

    I've never seen The Deer Hunter or Blade Runner

    You're welcome. This doesn't count Godfather 3 where there is a flashback to Fredo
