    I never saw the Magical Mystery Tour movie, but it's one of my favorite albums! I mean, the title track is amazing, Strawberry Fields... c'mon.

    Moondog, I loved the Warriors too!

    Undeniably the music is great, we're talking here about the dreadful movie, i believe it was Pauls idea to stick 30 people on a bus and just record what happens....watch it and see if your argument stands up

    The album wasn't released in the UK at the time, we got a double-EP. Strawberry Fields... wasn't on that...
    Time flies like the wind, fruit flies like bananas - go figure!

    With music like this, I don't even have to argue

    I've been debating this with myself for years, but here are my top 5 films (in no order - all of equal greatness to me!)

    - Blade Runner (1982)
    - Ghostbusters (1984)
    - Aliens (1986)
    - Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981)
    - Jason and the Argonauts (1963)

    I still enjoy modern cinema by, my god, they don't make them as classic and epic as they used to...

    REMEMBER: cream first, jam second...

    I have too many favourites to pick just five, but I can tell you the title of the best film I have ever seen. Directed by Fred Zinnemann for MGM on location in a devastated Germany in 1947, it was called THE SEARCH and was a brilliantly made, extremely moving film about the seemingly hopeless quest of a Czech mother for the young son she last saw behind the wire fence in Auschwitz before they were separated years earlier. The background is post war Germany and the efforts being made by the United Nations Relief and Rehabilitation Administration to help the untold thousands of strangely old and sad parentless children, mostly survivors of concentration camps, to find any of their relatives who are still alive. There are a quartet of wonderful performances by Aline MacMahon as a kindly UNRRA official; Jarmila Novotna as the little boy's mother; Montgomery Clift as the kindly G.I. and especially by ten years old Czech Ivan Yandl as the boy himself, whose truly remarkable performance won him a well deserved Golden Globe and an Oscar for Outstanding Juvenile Performance of 1948. The film is available on DVD from Warner Archive and is so upsetting in parts that most people will find it hard to watch without bursting into tears. However, the ending is so uplifting that you'll be shedding tears of joy. Highly Recommended!
