Lawrence of Arabia is epic enough on a regular-size TV screen - I wish I'd seen it in the cinema when it came out.

Between the optimist & the pessimist
The difference is quite droll:
The optimist sees the doughnut,
The pessimist sees the hole.

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!

I know what you mean, some of those young actors were great and so was the story of them all growing up. I only stumbled on this film by accident one night comming home from a night out, I think it was on channel 4 at about 2 o'clock in the morning and couldn't knock it off.
