    The Terminal starring Tom Hanks.

    More than a few implausibilities but still packs an emotional punch.

    I liked it right from the beginning, the characters and scenery eliminated the need for a proper story. I just wanted to watch them, I wanted to be that girl on the train.
    But unfortunately it became a mystery, and the big reveal came long before the official reveal.
    It could have been more, it could have been....a season.

    Junior.

    Surprisingly poignant. No doubt the Reitman influence. And Schwarzenegger can do more than say "I'll be back." Who knew?

    Romy and Michele's High School Reunion starring Mira Sorvino and Lisa Kudrow

    Not as funny as it thinks it is but entertaining in its way. Also notable for early appearances by some stars who would become much better known, including Camryn Manheim (The Practice, Ghost Whisperer) and Alan Cumming (The Good Wife, Instinct).

    Probably dating myself here, but I can't get past thinking of Cumming's American career as something new and novel. Even his earlier stuff.

    To me, he'll always be that guy from The High Life.

    I watched Rex Harrison and Gene Tierney in The Ghost and Mrs Muir

    Before that, Alan Cumming was the guy from The Airzone Solution to me. Which had starred Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy, Peter Davison, Jon Pertwee, Nicola Bryant, Michael Wisher and Nicholas Briggs. Those names seem vaguely familiar to me but I can’t quite place them.

    Lovelace starring Amanda Seyfried

    Unusual non-linear narrative revealing the tragic story of the artist formerly known as Linda Lovelace.

    Oops! Did I really put Jean Dimmons instead of Jean Simmons? Oh dear.

    Saw Aileen Marson starring in The Way of Youth. Sadly, she died just five years later at the age of 27, while giving birth to twins.

    Watched Thunderstorm with Charles Korvin (later star of ITC’s Interpol Calling) plotting against Carlos Thompson (ITC’s The Sentimental Agent from ITC’s Man of the World and ITC’s The Sentimental Agent).

    It was on YouTube, and I had never seen the full movie. It was more fun than I thought it would be - and I think it's time for a sequel.
