The Third Man...

is just one of those films that no matter how many times I've seen it, I end up watching it again when I flick through the TV channels. Does any other film do that for you?

For me it's the combination of the Anton Karas soundtrack and the striking use of black & white cinema technique that do it with The Third Man.

At university, we had to take a General Studies course so we didn't turn into complete nerds and I chose 'Film Studies'.

Orson Welles was one of the people we studied so we watched 'The Third Man' as part of that.

Like you, I'm liable to stay with it if I come across it.

I also enjoy the "Third Man". Another film I do watch , particularly in view of current middle east conflicts is "Lawrence of Arabia". The political fallout from that conflict are with us today.

Excalibur is my favourite film - I always get a 'buzz' when [the young] Arthur 'nonchalantly' pulls-out-the-sword-from-the-stone, and then puts-it-back-again, 'cos his 'Dad' orders him to do so.

When I watch a film I usually either fall asleep and miss most of it or, get bored and come back to the PC.

Many films, which we have watched on the telly [or even on the big-screen] as children, can be appreciated on a different level, when seen again as adults ... decades later.

[I watched (and listened to) the whole of ' The Magnificent Seven ' last saturday, on TV, for the first time in 40 years ... there's some great one-liners in it!]

Magnifico!

For me it's Get Carter and I still think the ending is unfair.

Yeah, Get Carter is surreal, my other drop eveything film is Ice Cold in Alex... I just can't flick past that one.
