My boyfriend and I have recently signed up with 'Love Film'. You can create a list of films you would like to see, they post you films from your list and you post them back free of charge.
I'm hoping to see many films that I haven't see before.

Can you think of any classic or 'must films' to add to my list? The kinda films that you've gotta see before you die, that kinda stuff?

I wait for films to come out on DVD so I am a little behind as far as being current on releases.

I can recommend "The Blind side " with Sandra Bullock though.

Most excellent movie.

I have seen some others but they were rather pedestrian.

Spart Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Lovefilm is a good way of renting dvds. I used them for quite a while but recently suspended my subscription as we just don't seem to have time to watch films at the moment.
