    Default Have we done films yet?

    An opportunity to screen some old favourites in the Olde ETA Inne. Perhaps the first ten will be:

    The Green Mile
    The Shawshank Redemption
    Tunes of Glory
    Monty Python and the Holy Grail
    A Clockwork Orange
    Blazing Saddles
    Young Frankenstein
    The Warlord
    The Great Escape
    American Werewolf In London

    This one is almost impossible for me, so I'll cheat a little

    Practically anything by Kubrick
    Any early Mel Brooks film
    Anything by Powell & Pressburger
    Anything by David Lean
    Any of the major Ealing comedies and a few of their more serious stuff
    German Modernist 1920s and German Avant Garde 1970s
    Anything with Micheal Caine or Clint Eastwood

    Outside of those few:

    Monty Python and The Holy Grail
    Dark Star
    Citizen Kane
    Sweet Smell of Success
    Withnail & I

    For Mrs Boots it's anything with Bruce Willis, preferably in a mucky vest.

    and we’ll drink more beer wherever we may be,
    and we’ll meet you all in a pub said he.

    I'm not a great one for films but do like Stanley Kubrick so

    200! A Space Odyssey
    Clockwork Orange
    The Shining

    I also liked Psycho, the Wicker Man and the Omen with the first one being best.
    Honourable mention to the very silly Hammer film The Devil Rides Out which inspired my email address and the label for any home made wine I used to bottle.

    Edit: The Good The Bad and the Ugly has been mentioned. My favourite is For A Few Dollars More.

    Like all these lists, I get the feeling I've overlooked something special. However, on first attempt:

    Some Like It Hot.
    Blade Runner.
    Shawshank Redemption.
    Ex Machina.
    Apocalypse Now.
    The Third Man.
    Spirited Away.
    A Night At The Opera.
    No Country For Old Men.
    Blue Velvet.
