  1. Sorry to hear about Bob Hoskins, he seemed like a good bloke.

    Who Framed Roger Rabbit is still pants, but not because of his performance.

    The less said about Super Mario Brothers, the better.

    Brazil was hauntingly brilliant.

  2. Yup – he’s not in Brazil for long, but it’s memorable.

    Also: Mona Lisa, The Long Good Friday, The Cotton Club and Who Framed Roger Rabbit (the Cotton Club is one of the best financial flops ever made).
