Apart from Blade Runner which i find to be a weird and awful movie, spot on the remaining 9 movies!! ALIENS being my favourite movie of all time, i am glad to see it at number 4!! GHOSTBUSTERS should be at number 3 instead of Blade runner!!




Seems spot on.




Dont' agree on any of this list at all, apart from The Goonies, which is good! the rest is not my thing, where is The Wizzard from 1989 thats a classic, there is not even ghostbusters on here!
