Its a warm, balmy night, with the sunset just on the horizon. You’ve set up your bean bags out on the grass. A cooler the size of a car is filled with assorted beers and wines and your projector light is streaming on your new inflatable movie screen. However, the realisation suddenly hits home; that you have to pick a movie to please the accords. This is not an easy task, as tastes in movies always seem to conflict with differences in age and personality.

Not to worry, I have come prepared. I have put together a list of movies that not only range in genre, but are especially ehanced  on an outdoor movie setup. Imagine this; Leonardo Di Caprio sprints across the forest floor with blood searing from his brow, as you listen to the rustle of the trees and light breeze in your own back yard or oval. Ladies and gentlemen, please enjoy this list as much as i enjoyed picking them. To be fair, Its not all Oscar winning performances, but you will sure be in for a great night and hopefully early morning! In no particular order:
