    Totally agree.

    I can watch them time and time again.

    The book Cruel Sea is also something I reread at least once a year.

      Satellite in The Sky (1956)

      This load of wooden, old (British) Sci-Fi tosh...

      ...enlivened by guest appearances from Vulcan and Midge.

      Look at the proto-Fireball XL5, complete with realistic exhaust (you can imagine a bloke just outside of the frame, holding up an electric fan to create the sense of speed!).

      And for you Historic anoraks, now you know where all the early Spitfire fuel gauges went. They appear in one of the Quatermass films, too!

        The Dawn Patrol

        The original 1930 version, with Richard Barthelmess and Douglas Fairbanks Jr. I've seen the 1938 remake countless times, but never the original, and it was startling to see that the David Niven/Errol Flynn version is near enough a word-for-word remake! It's no use saying that one is better than the other, because they're both almost exactly the same!

        Fighter Squadron

        Again. Yes, I know, but what makes it different this time is that I watched it right after The Dawn Patrol and, shock, horror! Fighter Squadron is a partial remake!! (Airfield attack? Check. Rescue of downed pilot? Check.) The cinematic differences are slight, with the setting and themes the only real differences. Still, it's a good movie to watch on a Sunday afternoon!

        Star Trek

        The 2009 reboot. Still good fun to watch - and on blu-ray, too!

        Fast Five

        The late Paul Walker's finest hour, where he teams up with his street racing buddy Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) to bring down a Brazilian drug baron. Sequels to films are meant to get progressively worse, not suddenly get better!

          Gravity with Sandra Bullock and George Clooney.
          A 3D space story that is pretty good if a little hard to believe.

            Taken. Liam Nielson, whoe's daughter gets kidnapped in Paris, and he sets off from the USA to get her back.
            All action, and as it was on Telly, it's bound to be shown again.
            10/10.

                Tora! Tora! Tora!

                Given yesterday was December 7th, I stuck the blu-ray in the machine for another watch. Still a great movie. The blu-ray disc has the extended Japanese cut as well, but I've not tried watching this yet.

                The World's End

                The third film from Messrs. Pegg, Wright and Frost. And I'm still not sure of it. I saw it in the cinema and wasn't massively enthusiastic about it. Watching it on DVD and I'm still of the same opinion. Oh well.

                Shaun of the Dead

                The first film in the Three Flavours trilogy - and undoubtedly the best of the bunch! Still funny, still touching, still gory as hell, still brilliant after the nth viewing!

                      Hi All,
                      The 39 Steps (1959) with Kenneth Moore.
                      As for those spitfire gauges what's the betting there sitting covered with a thick layer of dust and cobwebs on a film props lot somewhere ? and I like th Vulcan picture loverley

                        If you get the chance to see Hitchock's original with Robert Donat do so - it is far superior to the Kenneth More version.

                          Eight Below

                          An Antarctic research crew must flee their station when a fierce storm hits, regrettably leaving behind their team of eight sled dogs. What follows is the efforts of the sled dogs' master (Paul Walker) in trying to get back and save them, while the dogs fight for survival in the harshest environment known to man.

                          Surprisingly, this is based on a true story!

                                Hi All,
                                I think I have watched it many years ago is that the one where they are chased up Big Ben ? a version with Robert Powell has the same scene .
                                Ton.T,
                                I have seen the trailers for were the millers looks really good so will watch when it comes on Sky Movies.

                                  Interesting study of society although a bit off.

                                      Under hill 40 on Netflix USA true story of ww1 miners setting mines under German front, very very good in my opinion.

                                        Les Miserables

                                        I don't normally do musicals (except for Moulin Rouge!) but this wasn't too bad. An awfully lot of Cockney kids in 19th Century Paris, mind.

                                        Despicable Me

                                        Decent fun about the world's greatest criminal adopting some orphan girls so he can thwart his greatest enemy.

                                        Die Hard
