Name 3 hugely popular movies that you've never seen.
1. The Godfather Trilogy - I really want to watch it but I hesitate on two counts; what if I don't like it? and; it requires effort and a three-movie-commitment. I'm just not sure I have it in me.
2. Star Wars Triology (i.e. the originals) - I borrowed them from a friend years ago, got to the bit where R2D2 and C3PO are driving/walking across the desert and, bored to tears, I turned it off. I'm a Star Trek girl and always will be.
3. Alien Trashy sci-fi is normally my bag but somehow I've just...missed it.

What kind of car do you drive?
A 1998 Ford Fiesta Zetec Ghia.  It's old and getting to be a bit quirky but it's comfortable, reliable and bloody fast for it's size and age.  It does me just fine.  I've had it since 2006 when I finished University for the first time.  My parents generously bought it for me so I could get to work in a nearby town and it has lived here in the East Midlands ever since where my Mum has taken custodianship for it whilst I was living in different parts of the country.  Before I moved back we were discussing selling it as it's age is against it as was the fact I wasn't driving it, now I'm back it cheerfully darts me about the countryside and ensures that when life is getting me down I can always go downtown.

I fantasise about buying a new Fiesta (a zetec again, naturally), I also fantasise about buying an Audi R8 (drove behind one again tonight, recognised it's arse from miles back, in the dark) but that's no more likely to happen than the new Fiesta.

The end.

I've seen one and a half films of The Godfather Trilogy (the second one was so long and I think bed called). The first is definitely worth it though - it's a stand-alone film so you don't have to make the commitment to watch all three.

I love Star Wars - but I think that's because I got into it as a kid. Most people I know who were introduced when they were older haven't been too impressed (I feel much the same about Blues Brothers which everyone used to say was fantastic, but then I watched it as an adult and wondered what the hell they were on when they got into it).

That said, I didn't watch Alien until I was older. It is fantastic (although I must admit to prefering Aliens).

And as for the Ford Fiesta Zetec, mine is ten years younger than yours but awesome. I don't like the look of the newest model, but I'm so glad I got one before they changed the model. The poor thing is probably regretting having me as an owner though!
