Misc: ABC's My Favourite Film

The Australian Broadcasting Corp (ABC) ran a survey called "My Favourite Film" (MFF) and did a (rather cheesy) special last night. The most amusing part is the faux review of the programme by David Stratton after the end credits, where he mentions his Movie Show co-host Margaret Pomeranz's award-winning bit part in "Priscilla, Queen of the Desert" and the dreadful bearded guy in the special.

If the results of MFF are to be believed, then either Australians are closet SF fans or geeks have manipulated the survey because the top ten films are:

1. The Lord of the Rings Trilogy
2. Amelie
3. Blade Runner
4. The Shawshank Redemption
5. Donnie Darko
6. Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope
7. Pulp Fiction
8. The Princess Bride
9. Gone With The Wind
10. Fight Club

You can find the top 100 on the web site.
