  2. @kerraig UK you need to make a call on these.
  3. Final reminder for this - up to 23 now I think.

Charle Grodin dealt with Beethoven's 2nd. Lasse Hallström directs Johnny Depp and Leonard DiCaprio in What's Eating Gilbert Grape? We got the last decent Dark Knight film for a long while with Batman: Mask of the Phantasm. Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau were Grumpy Old Men. 1 Point The Hughes Brothers make their directorial debut with Menace 2 Society as Tyrin Turner and Jada Pinkett star. James Ivory directs Anthony Hopkins and Emma Thompson in period drama, The Remains of the Day. Henry Selick directs The Nightmare Before Christmas with Tim Burton collaborating as Halloween meets Christmas is Disney's stop motion story. 2 Points Renny Harlin gives us a chilly action flick as Sylvester Stallone faces off against John Lithgow in Cliffhanger in what would be Stallone's last year as an action star in decent movies. But he went out on a high also starring in alongside Wesley Snipes and Sandra Bullock in the great fun sci-fi action film, Demolition Man. Bar Copland in 1997, it would be a long, long time before Stallone was in anything decent again. Jim Sheridan directs Daniel Day Lewis, Pete Postlethwaite and Emma Thompson in the excellent and anger generating story of the Guildford 4 In the Name of the Father Robert Altman directs a massive ensemble cast in Short Cuts with Matthew Modine, Fred Ward and Julienne Moore as 3 of the 22 principal characters. Chris Columbus directs Robin Williams in drag in Mrs. Doubtfire which I'll happily admit is a great comedy as William's star power made this 2nd at the box office.

Production problems and being released the week after a film about dinosaurs didn't help. Krzysztof Kieślowski directs Juliette Binoche in French drama, Three Colours Blue which was the first of his three colours trilogy. George P. Cosmatos directs Wyatt Earp Western Tombstone with Kurt Russell and Val Kilmer 7 Points Brian De Palma directs a cracking gangster flick as Al Pacino and Sean Penn star in Carlito's Way. De Palma's last really great film (although Mission Impossible next year was decent) and an under-rated Pacino flick. Tony Scott directing, a Quentin Tarantino script, a brilliant soundtrack and an amazing cast gives us True Romance as Christian Slater and Patricia Arquette fall in love and try to sell some drugs. Full of great cameos and memorable scenes. I'm not sure this technically qualifies, but its genius, funny stop-motion so who can resist Nick Park's Wallace and Gromit: The Wrong Trousers with Peter Sallis as the cheese obsessed Wallace. 8 Points Richard Linklater writes and directs Jason London and Matthew McConaughey in his High School classic Dazed and Confused. Not a hit on release, it went on to be seen as one of the great high school movies. 11 Points No director has had a better single year than Steven Spielberg in 1993 as his masterpiece holocaust drama, Schindler's List misses out on third place on 1st place picks. It is not a film you can easily watch over and over as Liam Neeson and Ben Kingsley give superb performances, but its Ralph Fienne's portrayal as Nazi, Amon Göth that won his a Best Supporting Actor Oscar in only his third big screen role. The film won best film and director across the board and his achievement is more astonishing as he was also editing another film while making this one, but we will get to that in a minute. 3rd Place 11 Points Naked Mike Leigh's dark tale of David Thewlis taking a trip to London takes third place. Winning Best International film, director and actor at Cannes it kick started Thewlis' career as he starts alongside Lesley Sharp and Katrin Cartlidge. 2nd Place 24 Points Groundhog Day Harold Ramis directs fellow Ghostbuster, Bill Murray in Groundhog Day in a near perfect comedy, which could be argued as the decades best. Its high concept is brilliantly executed and its one of Murray's best performances alongside Andie MacDowell, Chris Elliott and a series of groundhogs known as Scooter that played Punxsutawney Phil. 1st Place 32 Points Jurassic Park Stephen Spielberg adapts Michael Crichton's book into a mega blockbuster as Sam Neill, Laura Dern and Jeff Goldblum must go faster to escape Jurassic Park. Heavily hyped, groundbreaking special effects, a brilliant John Williams score and a rollercoaster ride of thrills, scares and dinosaurs sees Spielberg smash box office records with this film in the same year he won all the awards for another as the director who effectively created the summer blockbuster does it again in the nineties.
  10. Now Subway want it released or some nonsense. https://movieweb.com/snyder-cut-justice-league-fast-food-support/ WB should just dump it on YouTube in a few parts in whatever state it is in although then we’d get release the Snyder cut in cinemas fully finished or some nonsense.
  11. Concur it is very good and description is a bit spoilery,
  12. Macclesfield’s game against Crewe called off due to unpaid wages. Surely there can’t be two clubs lost this season.
  13. 1992 Results Worldwide Box Office 1. Aladdin $504,050,219 2. The Bodyguard $411,006,740 3. Home Alone 2: Lost in New York $358,994,850 4. Basic Instinct $352,927,224 5.

Kevin Kline and Mary Elizabeth were Consenting Adults. Andy Garcia and Uma Thurman star in Jennifer Eight. Spike Lee directs Denzel Washington in biopic, Malcolm X.

Randal Kleiser directs Rick Moranis foolishly doing more experiments on his children in Honey, I Blew up the Kid.
