      Dr Strangelove – comedies from that era were unbeatable

    • Reverend Nick 10th August 2021 at 11:46 pm

      I recently re-watched Marty Feldman’s “Every Home Should Have One” which I thought was the best film in film-land back in 1970. What can I say now? Well, it’s . . . er . . . very much of its time!

      Shirley Valentine. Many groan when I say it but it’s me. I lived on Crete for some years, sadly having to return due to health issues. My home was on the edge of a lagoon where I sat many evenings watching the sun set. I have the film on video(!) and watch it a couple of times a year, it takes me back to those halcyon days. Willy Russell might have written it for many who are weary of their lives and need to break the mould.

          Loved Amelie, other foreign language films I could watch over would be :

          El Postino.
          Cinema Paradiso.
          Panther Panchali.

          I adore Il Postino as I love Pablo Neruda’s poetry and the movie was a gem and Amelie is a always a staple rewatch … you might like these then …

        • Reverend Nick 15th August 2021 at 1:08 pm

          I can thoroughly recommend L’ecume Des Jours or Mood Indigo to give it it’s English title. Bizarre film of Boris Vian’s surrealist book – in which Audrey Tautou’s insides are made of wool!

    • HH 2021 11th August 2021 at 8:25 pm

      Bohemian Rhapsody, love it! Watched it about 10 times already!🤣

    • CAAS 11th August 2021 at 8:55 pm

      Blimey, that’s a tough one, off the Top of my head.
      Star Wars (Original Trilogy)
      It’s a Wonderful Life.
      Angels with Dirty Faces
      True Grit (the one starring Duke Wane)
      The Dollars Trilogy
      The Shootist
      Can’t think of any more at the moment, but there will be more, when I think about them.

    • Deleted User 11th August 2021 at 9:18 pm

      Mind full of honey – watch it all the way to the end and it will make sense.

      Shawshank redemption

      • adeliza0165 15th August 2021 at 6:37 am

        The Wizard of Oz is such a classic – have watched it so many times and never get fed up of it. Takes me back to another time and era… I didnt exist and my mum was just a baby 💟

      • Chooch 15th August 2021 at 9:28 am

        Whistle down the wind!! Thank you!! What a better film.

        I wonder if you might like Tony Scott’s ‘Loving Memory’? It’s a bit macabre but cinematography is magical.

    • AEB 12th August 2021 at 4:35 pm

      The quite Man

    • Sonny1234 12th August 2021 at 7:22 pm

      Apocalypse Now
      Somebody Up There Likes Me
      When We Were Kings
      Taras Bulba

      Admittedly a few more than most but I’m a big movie fan & for me The Cinema is a refuge at bad times , a great film is like a great book , you can get lost in it!!!!
      I could name more but I think that’s enough to be going on with .lol .

    • shelagh.lamming 12th August 2021 at 7:48 pm

      Never watched any film

    • JaneG 12th August 2021 at 9:36 pm

      I kicked myself for not using lockdown to watch the Star Wars films in the order that the story unfolds … or does that contain too many spoilers? Should I watch them in the order that they were produced?? 🤔 Advice welcome!!

    • Margaret B 13th August 2021 at 8:23 am
