DVD movies must haves.

#1
Discussing movies the other night with a few mates we came to the point asking what dvd's we were still missing in our must have collection.

Off the top of my head I came to the conclusion that I miss ;

Ronin.
Das Boot.

There are certainly countless more that could add to my collection,but I rate these 2 as classic/cult movies and a 1st prio.

So, what classic/cult movies do you miss in your collection to make it complete?

Das Boot is definitely up there with the best (the original cast dubbed it into English). Band of Brothers is alongside it for sure.

You being a Cloggie, Soldier of Orange is as good as any English movie of the war, as is Black Book, which I think is better.

But for me the best film about the war is Downfall, although off topic I have them all.

Lawrence of Arabia , on widescreen / Bluray superb.
I was thinking European, but you are right, I watched that at the end of the first Gulf War, and to think he creamed in on a motorbike after all he did. Then again Patton died in a car crash too.

Ahhh, Where Eagles Dare, my Dad took me to see that when I was about 10 I think, Herford Cinema at 4 Div.

Which brings in Kelly's Heroes of course, a classic movie.

Probably not available on DVD, but the look on the German Naval Officer's face as he sailed his ship into the French port which had been decked out for the filming of Das Boot...

I saw Attack on Leningrad the other day, but having not heard of it I didn't get it. A small synopsis would be appreciated.

Debbie does Dallas just shows us your age Auld Yin :p I've never actually seen it myself. Ugly fat women I'm sure ;)

Off on a slight tangent, all of the above plus "9th Company" (Russkies in a hot shitty, dusty place) with March or Die (British Legion in the desert!) with Gene Hackman and the 1992 one about Dien Bien Phu.
Pretty much the same theme in all (sold short by the politicians...................................)
Cracking films all of them

" Skis Against The Atom " .... the Norwegian version of the Telemark Raid on the Heavy Water Plant at Rjukan made with actual members of the team that took part in the attack . It is available but difficult to find .


Correction ..............film title actually " The Battle for Heavy Water (Kampen om tungtvannet) " ..... I have the book " Skis Against The Atom " .
Edited for a correction .... see above .

Attack on Leningrad - based around the 800 day siege. English female reporter gets stuck in Leningrad and is helped by a female Russian Political Officer. Has scenes ranging from the brutality of trench warfare to civilian populations daily struggle. Very moving, based on true story. Great historical accuracy with German and Allied high command scenes too.

Bringing Yin upto date.... Solorosa by Q44 - best lesbian porn i've found, and i have looked! 10euros in milan. hmmmmmmmmm
