The Nick/Nigel fight scene on the river bed, where as it goes on more and more of a western saloon is revealed. Class...

Were ORs and NCOs taught to read maps back then - or is that your point?
I assume they could read a map but it was more the fact he proceeded to explain the battle plans to them.
The Germans have pulled back, but they think we don't know but, look here's some top secret ariel photos to show you before I send you over there.

Wouldn't he just say here take a message to the the Devons and here where they are.

Or wouldn't he turn to the nearest RFC pilot and say, take this weighted message, and drop it to the Devons, as it will be much quicker than trying to get two people to walk it? (considering it was aerial observation that gave them the knowledge of the trap in the first place)..

The film deserved an Oscar for the cinematography alone which if one disregards the plot holes is outstanding. The director needed a story line to match the one scene camera work and if viewed that way it was excellent.
It wasn’t a documentary :)

Nah, wasn't impressed..as cliched as a cliched thing IMHO ...

Cinematography ....Meh

The colours, film and scenes in Zulu or Yul Brnner's Magnificent Seven, were just as good and how old are those films?

Lack of willpower … could not resist a peek and as this is in the Films , Music and All Things Artsy Forum all I can say , courtesy of the Swan of Avon , is an extract from one of my favourite King Lear quotes …

… if you are telling the truth you are …

A knave; a rascal; an eater of broken meats; a base, proud, shallow, beggarly, three-suited,hundred-pound, filthy, worsted-stocking knave .

… if you are lying you are still …

Heading off for a few days tomorrow morning. I’ll have to watch it on the hotel WiFi.

The tunnel dug from the jail cell. Brilliant.
 
Used to love having a few classic film sessions on nights where I was travelling for work. However, I suspect that whatever 'normal' is after COVID-19 there'll be a hell of a lot less travel for the average Civil Servant

I resemble that remark.

My granddaughters think she's wonderful.

Finally got round to watching this properly. Very well done indeed and certainly a great watch. Along with Siege of Jadotville it's an example of how I wish more modern war films were made.
 
Via Netflix, Hot Fuzz.
British film, british actors all of which are eminently recognisable, typical british humour, an over achieving Met Police sergeant farmed off to the depths of Somerset. Lots of stupidity and absurd stuff but I enjoyed the sillines of it, added bonus last 15/20 minutes or so if your quick enough there is an abundance of weapon porn.

I’ve recently watched:

Please turn over.

This is a 1959 British comedy with an excellent cast, the film is often described as starring Leslie Phillips, but he only has a supporting role.

The film is a brilliant example of British farce. The general plot line is that a young girl writes a best selling novel, and the neighbours and local population see the ‘steamy characters’ in the book as the girl, her family and friends.
The film follows the reactions of those reading the book, and then the effect the notoriety has on the family.

It’s hard to give much detail without including spoilers, but it’s fair to say this film made me laugh out loud on multiple occasions.

I Love Hot Fuzz, the story is not only very funny, but as the film locations are well known to me it was like watching a ‘local drama’ :)

Buried with Ryan Reynolds.
Shite film but on the plus side Ryan Reynolds is buried alive.
Bonus :mrgreen:
 
What A Carve Up. Fairly average Brit late 50’s comedy but with Shirley Eaton as eye candy, bearable.
