So here is where you can nominate your favourite films. Don’t worry if they’re already on the list, it’ll just give them a boost. Also, put as many films down in the comments below as you want. The more the merrier.

I will however, question any film that has a poor rating on IMDB. If you can argue your case as to why it should be in the 250, then it goes up on the nomination list.

You can nominate up till the 28th Feb, or if I don’t get that many nominations, till I hit 250 films. Once we have a list, depending on how many we have, I will decide how we then rank them. It’s a work in progress.

I’ll be nominating one film each week to get things going. This is one of my most watched films. It cheers me up when I’m sad, makes me laugh every time, and I’ll never get bored of it.
