    I like horror films a lot. Hard to find a decent one anymore...

    My favorite film has to be 'August Rush' that's just off the top of my head though. I'll give it some thought later...

    I thought you were joking since said you liked horror a lot
    August Rush is only five years old, how is it a classic?

    Taste may differ from person to person, but I think you may be ignoring some of the film's fatal flaws. None of the characters grow or change during the film, the main character learns only to run from his problems and has little or no actual struggle, people just shelter him the whole time. All his skill is purely "natural", he never has to work hard and the entire movie hangs on this invisible "musical connection" gimmick between him and his parents. Not to mention the whole movie is enormously cheesy and full of unintentionally funny dialogue. It's just a factory made "Oliver Twist"y feel-good fantasy movie. In my opinion the only redeeming quality is Robin William's stunning performance as a believable villain.
