Field of Dreams is definately a very good film. It wouldn't be in my top 20 but that doesn't make it bad. You certainly don't need to like baseball to appreciate it as it's not really about baseball.

If you build it, they will come... :D

Another one that likes Office Space :)

A true classic, worth it for such quality moments as the Asian Guy rapping whilst stuck in Traffic, and the three of them taking baseball bats to the Laser Printer/Fax Machine :lol:

Robert I've just remembered you're a James Horner Fan which makes it very surprising you've not seen Field of Dreams!

If you get it on DVD there's a brilliant 90mins 'Making Of' which includes a good chunk on the Soundtrack and a discussion with the man himself.

The top 20 lists a great addition to this thread and it'd be cool if a KOA top 20 could be generated (i wonder if YMDB site allows grouping?)

Field of Dreams is a film that always caught my eye but I've never got around to watching - thanks to Ely's recommendation gonna give it a viewing soon! :)

Office Space is on BBC2 tonight at midnight if anyone wants to watch it. I've not seen it, so I've set the recorder.

Film : Blood Diamond

Watched : 08/04/07

Format : DVD

Score : 7/10

Review : Leonardo Di-Caprio acted very well, with a convincing South African accent. I thought it was a very good film. Good plot, and makes you feel for the people and what is going on in the country, in those situations.

It's not a film I'd watch over and over, but it was definately worth its viewing time.
