The 10 films are:

Mary Poppins
Forrest Gump
The Shining
Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory)
I Am Legend
American Psycho
The Queen of the Damned
A Clockwork Orange
V for Vendetta

I totally agree about SAHARA. I am a big Dirk Pitt fan, and could only watch the first 5 minute of this film and turned it right off. The older film of RAISE THE TITANIC (1980) with Richard Jordan as Dirk was actually much better.

Any thoughts?

P. Lundburg | 63 comments I'm also a big Dirk Pitt fan and didn't know there were ANY film versions out there (and yes, I was around in 1980, even!). But given what you've said, I don't think I want to go back and check them out....
