It's a little place in Glasgow called The Flying Duck. It's going to be excellent! And that is a really great rundown of your love for BTTF.

Nice, i didn't know the Flying Duck could be hired for things like that; I might have to totally steal your idea on my next birthday.

Well 1968 was a good year, with films like The Odd Couple, Barbarella, Hang 'em High, If..., Planet of the Apes and Night of the Living Dead. However you also get films like 2001 and The Green Beret (yes I am linking those 2 films together). Still none of those is my favourite. Once Upon a Time in the West takes the prize.

1983.  My definite favorite is Videodrome.  A slightly close second is The King of Comedy.

1962. Can't complain. Three films are in my Top 100, the favorite being Bresson's The Trial of Joan of Arc. Cleo from 5 to 7 (Varda) and Jules and Jim (Truffaut) are the other two. And lots of other great films by Godard, Buńuel, Bergman, Welles...

Depending on what time of day you asked me, it would be either Breathless or The Apartment.

Three Colors: Blue, which also happens to be my favorite film ever at the moment. (likely to change)

EDIT: Naked is also pretty great.

1990- Awakenings.

Sure there's Goodfellas, Close-Up, The Grifters, Miller's Crossing, Metropolitan, etc.- but my personal choice is Penny Marshall's moving film about a bond between two men formed in uniquely challenging, troubling, and ultimately enlightening circumstances. Some might look at is just a sob story and I was probably the right age to see this and not find it contrived or just depressing for its own sake, but De Niro and Williams are undeniably great together. Just a very sweet, humble, and emotional film. Sits somewhere in my Top 100.

I was born in 1967, the year when The Graduate came out. To be honest I haven't watched it since the mandatory watching at High School and I don't remember it all that well. Simon and Garfunkel's Mrs Robinson rocks, but does the movie? I don't know.

So the movie of my choice is:  The Jungle Book.

And don't spend your time lookin' around
For something you want that can't be found
When you find out you can live without it
And go along not thinkin' about it
I'll tell you something true

The bare necessities of life will come to you
