What? What are you talking about? It's girls and spaghetti. We love girls and spaghetti.

I will begrudgingly go with Lethal Weapon, which I thought was OK, but nothing special. Other than that, I've seen both the first two Superman films and The Omen, and I didn't like any of 'em.

I should probably add I've never been too fond of The Goonies either.

torn between the seminal Goonies and an great (aren't they all though) turn from Bill Murray in Scrooged - went former due to that terrible song that closes the film.

I haven't seen all the movies listed above (mostly the Superman movies and the Lethal Weapons, with some others), but I have to go with 16 Blocks. Not a great film by any means, but still an entertaining cop thriller. I know most people were rather split on it, but I actually had a good time with it.

That and the fact that, try as various directors might, I just can't dig Superman.

-Le Chiffre: You changed your shirt, Mr Bond. I hope our little game isn't causing you to perspire.

-James Bond: A little. But I won't consider myself to be in trouble until I start weeping blood.

Hum..The Goonies? Lots of classic 80s material that I like, none that I love.

How articulate and insightful. It also happens to be my opinion, too.

The Goonies is pretty great.
