    Probably the best of the lot :

    Sneakers

    $5.32 from DVDPacific for the Collector's Edition. That's about 10p in our money these days! :smashin:

    For conspiracy movies, I certainly recommend

    The Bourne Identity
    A few good men
    Three days of the Condor
    All the presidents men
    The third man

    Take your pick from the early/mid 70s, Hollywood was obsessed with such films.

    Spy game ...urm ...Nikita

    MrBlofeldt, I just noticed your signature or whatever you call it saying "Babylon 5 is a big pile of **** !". So if you think that about Babylon 5 what do you think is good sci-fi TV?

    If I am correct MrBlofeldt's signature is a quote from that excellent show "Spaced" where the lead character is a fanboy who likes the original Star Wars, hates Jar-Jar, and says this to the owner of a comic-book shop where he is about to resign - he says this to wind up the guy who is a big Babylon 5 fan.

    So don't take offence! :)

    Nikita is the French version not the Hollywood remake starring Bridget Fonda which is called something else that I can't remember.

    NERD ALERT :)

    Point Of No Return was the US title and I seem to remember It was called Assassin here in the UK. It also had Gabriel Byrne in the Tcheky Karyo(spelling) role and Harvey Keitel in the role previously taken by Jean Reno.

    The Thirteenth Floor might fit in, as it's based all around computers.

    The Package is what I call an other of Gene Hackman film

    Capricorn One

    Executive Action which in a sence is what The Parallax View veiw told. Any one got a link to a transcript to Alex Cox inntro tho the film when it was shown in the Moviedrome set of film, made a chilling film a lot more chilling. In fact the very end of Executive Action is sort of the plot for The Parallax View
