    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
    Shit.....You shoot me in a dream, you better wake up and apologize.

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

    Shaun of the Dead

    Withnail and I

    The King's Speech (this one was the toughest choice, as I love Trainspotting)

    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.
