the inside of a 3star halex table tennis ball smells much like you'd expect it to.

There are so many films I have enjoyed, but a short list is:

 

A Fistful of Dollars, For a Few Dollars More, The Good The Bad and The Ugly, The Third Man and all three versions of The 39 Steps.

 

A psychiatrist would have a field day with me quoting that mixed-up collection.  :)

Billy Liar, especially the ten minutes between Billy and his pal going for lunch and Julie Christie opening the supermarket.

The club where Eurovision isn't a dirty word. A waltz through the leopard skin lined world of Tom Jones, Bert Kampfert and Burt Bacharach. Step out to the sound of the happy hammond and swing to the seductive sounds of the samba.

DJ's, raffles, cocktails and wide collars. Please dress smart. Gentlemen might like to wear a suit.

Same price. Same music. Same rubbish prizes.

Is there summat I've missed here as I've no idea what the original post was alluding to. :(

 

Anyways, "An inspector calls" for me, Alastair Sim is absolutely superb in it.

Ok
When CKN initially locked the thatcher topic I posted that my favourite film was the wizard of Oz. think of the songs from that film -there is one particular one that I thought was apt.

I seriously though that this wasn't that sutble a was expecting a telling off by the mods.

By the looks if it only Chuffer and maybe Futtocks got the subtlety

Ah, thanks. Never seen the film but I'm aware of some of the songs from it, certainly the one you're thinking if.

Nah, there will have been plenty of us who knew exactly what the reference was.

Here's an odd little cult film I happened upon years ago, and which has been posted online in its entirety (in this case with English subtitles).

La Cabina, directed by Antonio Mercero (1972).

Nothing wrong with daft stuff, although I find 'Mars attacks!' goes on a bit too long and could benefited from a snappier editing job. Woody Allen's early stuff like 'Bananas', 'Sleeper' and 'Everything you wanted to know' are great fun.

Once upon a time in America is also one of my favourites, it's about 4 or 5 hours long and de Niro is my favourite actor. Also can't beat a good war film and apocalypse now is an epic, born on the 4th of July is a great war movie too.

This might be controversial, or maybe not, but I actually enjoy the first half of the film (with the young actors playing the parts) a little more than the second. Some of those kids were really good!
