  1. Just watched Wild Geese for the umpteenth time. Loads of cap badges, slrs, fn's, smg's, lmg's, funny coloured berets etc etC....
    ARE THERE ANY OTHER CLASSIC MOVIES, LIKE THIS ONE, OUT THERE?




    Edited for mong typing skills.
     
  2. Wild Geese 2
     
  3. Only good bit is the guys lobbing off the tailgate in a mass free-fall exit.(Rhodesian SAS??).
     
  4. Classic, but showing it's age obviously. Not seen the second one (I think).

    True classic. The Wild Geese is brilliant
     
  6. A bit like the cast then - most of them must have been pushing 60+ when they shot this one

    Whats not classic about this film? Its a tongue in cheek riot of action and wonderful one liners!
     
  8. absolute classic
    the sequels crap
     
  9. A cracking film..... a bit dated now as has been mentioned, but it's still a classic in my book.
     
  10. My dad took me to see it when I was a sprog. We had to take the bus two towns away to get to the cinema, so we made a day of it and watched The Black Hole as well. Not the porn version, obviously.

    It's truly a classic. Why can't they make movies like that these days?
     
  11. The Wild Geese is a great film. Anyone that doesn't like it should be de-bagged and have a cucumber inserted up their hoop.
