On a lighter note, Tom Harris has tagged me on this - the list of DVDs which Barack Obama gave Gordon Brown, which incidentally I think was a mighty fine present, especially seeing as Gordon is a film buff. (Although I was slightly put out to learn, many years ago, that Gordon walked out of Pulp Fiction. I like to think it was because he was with someone who was easily offended, rather than taking offence himself).
These are the films: Citizen Kane, The Godfather, Casablanca, Raging Bull, Singin’ in the Rain, Gone with the Wind, Lawrence of Arabia, Schindler’s List, Vertigo, The Wizard of Oz, City Lights, The Searchers, Star Wars: Episode IV, Psycho, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Sunset Boulevard, The Graduate,The General, On the Waterfront, It’s a Wonderful Life, Chinatown, Some Like it Hot, The Grapes of Wrath, ET: The Extra-Terrestrial and To Kill a Mockingbird.
You get two points for owning them, one point for seeing them and nul points if you've done neither. Tom got 22. I won't beat that.
I own - On the Waterfront.
I've seen - Citizen Kane, The Godfather, Casablanca, Raging Bull, Singin’ in the Rain, Schindler’s List, Vertigo, The Wizard of Oz, Psycho, The Graduate, It’s a Wonderful Life, Chinatown, Some Like it Hot, and To Kill a Mockingbird. [And I'm not 100% sure about Chinatown actually].
So, a measly 16 points out a possible 50. I tag - Paul Smith, the Bristol Blogger, Northern Lights, Bevanite and someone called Dave (there seems to be rather a lot of you).
P.S. Tom - foie gras adverts on the website?
