It takes all sorts, Floo. I love the cinema experience - especially in such a wonderful environment as the Regal in Evesham, where you can have drinks brought to your table from the bar at the back of the stalls.

Films - so difficult but:

Bridge on the River Kwai
The Ladykillers - both with the incomparable Alec Guinness
ET - The Extra Terrestrial
The Millenium Trilogy - in Swedish (Dragon Tattoo etc)
Henry V (Olivier)
The Book Thief
James Bond (well, some of them)

My grand children have made me watch Frozen about a dozen times but it doesn't hold a candle to Spirited Away, Whisper of the Heart, Howl's Moving Castle or just about anything else from Studio Ghibli

North by Northwest
Star Trek (well, some of them)
Indiana Jones (all of them)

A Man for All Seasons
The Thief of Baghdad
Robin Hood (Erroll Flynn)
Annie Get Your Gun
The King's Speech
The Theory of Everything

The mention of Guinness reminds me of Kind Hearts and Coronetsc, and thence Whisky Galore

Surprised that no-one has mentioned the Shawshank Redemption - or does that contravene the limitations that I've seen reference to, but no definition of.  Has to be THE best film ever.
Are your, or your friends'/relatives', garages, lofts or sheds full of unused DIY gear, sewing/knitting machines or fabric and haberdashery stuff?

I am one of those odd people that doesn't really like The Shawshank Redemption, in part because of the change to the end from the novella.

As well as some mentioned by others, in no particular order:

Catch Me if You Can
The Italian Job with Michael Caine
The Thomas Crown Affair with Steve McQueen
Fly Away Home
The Great Escape
Thirty-Nine Steps with Kenneth More

And not forgetting:

Finding Nemo 1
Toy Story 2
The Wizard of Oz

I'm having a deja vu..... we've done this thread before.

Have heard of the novella, but never read it - so I can't judge.

The OP says my "favourite movie," singular.  As always, the OP is ignored.  It may seem a niggardly thing to say, but just demonstrates that posters ignore what they don't agree with, and derail, or diverge from the point at will.  So,we may as treat all threads as whatever we want them to be:  in other words, chaos.

Quite the opposite.  I merely suggest people are not adhering to the rules of the forum.  My recent thread has 324of posts, but only a couple of dozen actually addressed the OP.

And? Reply 7 is a retrospective act by rule 6, subsection (b)  para 4, line two of the 1937 Copenhagen version of the forum rules which apply since the subject is defined as fungible within the definition of the cross Subject rules for posts started in months without an r in them by posters whose starting initial is from the first two thirds of the alphabet

Lighten up BA.

I pointed out to Gordon that he'd introduced an Americanism (unforgivable) but also that it is really too difficult to choose one favourite film.

He then said:
Quote
I hereby, and formally, and with profuse apologies for being such a thoughtless spoilsport, remove the one movie (sorry Trent) restriction!!!!!  :)

So the originator of the thread thinks it's ok to name more than one moviefilm.

It's only a thread about films. Reserve your self-righteousness for swearing.
So many homophobes turn out to be secretly gay that I'm nervous I'm secretly a giant spider.

Rules are rules.  Or are they?  I asked the mods to take note of how my thread was being derailed on a big scale.  Nothing was said or done. 

For self-righteous, red: "correct."  Go ahead, disagree with me.  I thought you were a touch above it.  Clearly not. Go and swear with the rest of them if you think it's self-righteous not to want to.

This would appear to be a big derail but it reminds me of 'The truth! You can't handle the truth!' So I will add A Few Good Men

Let me put it another way BA.

Some of the threads on this board I would agree need a certain discipline and rigour to keep them meaningful and on track - other threads I tend to regard as a chat over a beer down the pub.

My favourite film falls into that latter category for me - so if asked that question down the pub I would have responded  'I can't name one single film - but these are some of my favourites......'

That's all I was saying - if you don't agree and can't see that I'm sorry.
