British movies

Post  commachio on 2013-03-26, 11:59 am

The best and the worst of British..

Must admit to liking some of the oldies, The carry on movies, On the buses etc...

Monty pythons did some crackers also..

Zulu were'nt bad..

Lock stock, rock'n'rolla and snatch all great movies, Quadrophenia to.

Not to impressed with, Get Carter, Trainspotting, Full Monty was pretty naff..



Special mention to the original Italian job..

Yes, Zulu just had to be made, didn't it? More VCs awarded for that Rorke's Drift defence than for any other operation in history. I liked Brassed Off and Billy Elliott. And some of the period pieces the Brits do so well - Chariots of Fire, etc.

Good one Commo, made me think this did.

Some of my favourites, which tend to be old ones I watched when I was quite young:
Kes (Loved the book and film does it justice. Makes me cry)
Kind Hearts and Coronets (Alec Guinness is hilarious playing most of the characters getting bumped off)
Bridge on the River Kwai, (Alec Guinness at his serious best)
The Ladykillers (Great cast and well acted)
Whisky Galore (I don't think this is the best but I have watched this many times and still laugh at it)
Black Narcissus (Atmospheric and tense)
The Thirty Nine Steps (Hitchcock's version, loved the book and this is the best effort at it on film, even if it's not perfect)
Dr No (Sean Connery!!!)
Gregory's Girl (Loved this gentle coming of age comedy)
Local Hero (I know, I know, but so funny!)
Life of Brian (The best Monty Python movie imo)
Billy Elliott (Music brought back my teenage years. Worth watching for the brief glimpse of Adam Cooper, playing Older Billy, as The Swan in Matthew Bourne's Swan Lake Very Happy)

If I see a movie I don't like I tend to forget about it, but one I can remember is A Clockwork Orange. Far too violent for me, even if it was critically acclaimed.

British movies based on British books that I thoroughly enjoyed in both contests were King Rat, Saturday Night and Sunday Morning and Lonlieness of the Long Distance Runner.
