Cool hand Luke instantly comes to mind.
The full lenght version of that might be hard to come by. I did look around for it but all I could find were "scenes."

I did not read the book, but the movie , I thought, was well done.

Another movie that I recommend a lot is "Lord of the Flies" Black & white from the early 1960's.
A later version from the 1990's, in color, is not so good, too politically correct.
I tried to read the book on this one, but it's written in "British", very difficult to read.

All I could find is this one with Russian subtitles - sorry

although very dated "zulu" was an excellent film. i preferred "zulu dawn".
"zulu" was rorke's drift, while "zulu dawn" was ilsandlwana.
can one imagine the british saluting and walking away from a handful of surviving zulus if the shoe had been on the other foot?

my personal favorite war movie is the grim "cross of iron", by peckinpah about germans getting encircled on the crimea after the fall of stalingrad. WWII was fought between the soviet union and germany. everything else was strictly secondary

Oh yeah, Bullitt - the car chase scene.


A friend of mine when I was young, put a 390 in a '68 convetible mustang. That car was a freak. It got the wheels off the ground from a launch. My GTO couldn't touch it, not even on the higway. That car had unlimited top end.

I can't seem to find a free stream of Terry Gilliam's 1985 movie "Brazil". I will keep looking.

Brazil is one of my all-time favorites. When it came out, I wrote a movie review of it for the local newspaper.

The review was titled "Monty Python meets George Orwell."

Couldn't find Blade Runner either. How about Fritz Lang's 1927 "Metropolis". I am going to rewatch this since its been a long time since I have seen it. Don't forget to click on the gear icon at the bottom right & choose 720p & go full screen with good audio;



One of the rescored/restored versions in English & 1080p;
