Went to see my all-time favourite film at the cinema last night, Big Trouble in Little China. It’s a film that never fails to cheer me up and offers 90 minutes of pure escapism and fun.
I saw it at The Prince Charles Cinema (just off Leicester Square), which isn’t as regal as it sounds, but it is the best cinema in London in my opinion. I’m actually a lifetime member there.
I was pretty excited about seeing it on the big screen and I loved every minute of it – but the only drawback to being a massive geek like me, is the people you have to sit next to at these events. I’ve sat next to more than my fair share of overweight, beardy, ponytailed types in my time. As long as they don’t smell and they don’t try to talk to me, I don’t mind too much. That would be a step too far.
I’ve seen many of my favourite films at the cinema now, including:
Withnail & I, An American Werewolf in London, Blue Velvet, Jaws, Lost Highway, Monty Python’s Life of Brian, Evil Dead, Clockwork Orange, Robocop, Night of The Living Dead, Halloween, 2001: Space Odyssey, The Shining, Terminator, Dressed to Kill, Erasorhead, Monty Python & The Holy Grail, Tron…
I could go on but that’s a long enough list for one day.
I’ve never seen Crocodile Dundee though.
