The Quiet Man, with John Wayne.

Bladeunner. Philadelphia. Green Mile. Any Clint Eastwood western. The Godfather.Lawrence of Arabia. Bridge on the river Kwai. 2001 a space odyssey. High noon. All quiet on the western front. Great expectations.

And dozens more.

Herbert Smith.... As long as the film doesn't mind.

Misrepresented the British prisoners. They did not take pride in the building of the bridge, they took every opportunity to sabotage it. My partner's father was one of those prisoners.

My favourite is Dr Strangelove.

Godfather I and II and original Apocalyse Now - the directors cut was overlong and added virtually nothing to the original.

FE read on Friday that Bladerunner is to get another Directors Cut with Ridley Scott actually reshooting a few scenes.

click here but I have high expectations.

Much prefer the original BladeRunner with the voice over, to the directors cut version.

If you want to pick favourites you really need to categorise the films
i.e.
Comedy - The Burbs - Blazing Saddles - Any Ealing comedy
Thriller -
Horror - Hammer films
SciFi - Star Wars
Cartoon - Snow White
Musical -

Although of course some films contain a mixture
Alien - SciFi / horror / Thriller

The Devils Rejects

For the power of the music & ending - Officer & a Gentleman.
Chariots of Fire being a good 'British' film
Ealing Comedies from when Britain led the way.
