Sitting here with my eldest watching Gladiator - fantastic film and this has got me thinking as to what are my favourite three films of all time

So here goes

1. Has to be Star Wars - probably the very first one although I love Return of the Jedi (if only for Princess Leia dancing!)
2. Shawshank Redemption
3. Braveheart

However I also love the Wizard of Oz, Die Hard and Airplane

What are your favourite films

It's tricky, as films keep getting better and better, both in the storyline and in the quality of the production, so I'll list older films and new films

Older
1. Hopscotch - Walter Matthau and Glenda Jackson - a brilliant combination
2. Forbidden Planet - SciFi film that was way ahead of it's time
3. 2001

Modern
1. Inception
2. Chocolat
3. Indiana Jones (Original film)
