    Re: Best British Movie - Round 1

    Shaun of the Dead - One of my all time favourites, the greatest horror-comedy ever made . would anyone like a peanut?

    Lawrence of Arabia - One of the greatest 'epic' movies ever made

    Zulu - I haven't watched Don't look now, so Zulu takes it on a default, but Zulu is great anyway.

    Trainspotting - The tightest one for me, I wrote King's Speech off as a film that wouldn't be my cup of tea, but really enjoyed it when I saw it. Trainspotting however is one of the iconic British films for me growing up, so it gets my vote.

    Re: Best British Movie - Round 1

    Shaun of the Dead - Simon Pegg, Nick Frost
    vs
    Goldfinger - Sean Connery - One of the best bond films out there. Shawn is a great film ni it's own right but these are from two very different genres so it's not quite a fair battle.

    Lawrence of Arabia - Peter O'Toole - One film everybody MUST see. A classic.
    vs
    Withnail and I - Richard E Grant, Paul McGann

    Don't Look Now - Donald Sutherland
    vs
    Zulu - Stanley Baker - Again a classic.


    The King's Speech - Colin Firth
    vs
    Trainspotting - Ewan McGregor - Both very godo films but Trainspotting is without doubt a better film

    Do we have to vote in every pairing or not?

    Shaun of The Dead vs Goldfinger

    The King's Speach vs Trainspotting

    If you haven't seen some of the films, it's ok to just vote on the pairings you have.

    Haven't seen either film from the other pair.

    Goldfinger
    Lawrence of Arabia
    Don't Look Now
    Trainspotting

    And yeah, I think it would be better if you didn't vote for one if you haven't seen the other. That's not really fair.
