We all know that whilst Hollywood is home of the blockbuster, Britain has produced some of the finest movies over the years.

Let's get a list going of some of your faves:

I'll start...

ID
Shaun of the Dead
Dog Soldiers

Anyone else???

If you're sticking to the 00's, then I might struggle.

However, over the decades previous, some of the best have been British Made.

A Fish Called Wanda was pretty funny, as were the Python movies.

The Carry On movies and the Ealing Comedies are classics.

Bond still counts as British, so some of these are really cool - wwhich actually leads me to the one I CAN add to your lise, Noms: Casino Royale. Might be american money, but its a British Flick.

NOMS,

Every James Bond film is good...
Monty Python and the holy grail
Shaun of the Dead
28 Days Later
Dog Soldiers
Wasn't at least part of Star Wars filmed in England?

I love the line in Dog Soldiers when the guy is just about to die, he says to the wearwolf, "I hope I give you the sh_ts". I laughed my @ss off when I saw that...

Yep, absolutely love the Hammers. Along with the Amicus horrors too, they did some wonderful anthology films. [Smile]

No I don't think he ever did appear in a Hammer. He did many of his films in America.

Has anyone seen 28 weeks later yet? I was abit dubious about it when I heard they were making it but the previews I've seen may have pushed me to wanting to see this one now?

Anyone care to enlighten me as to whether or not its worth watching?

Noms [Cool]

ps. Princess Pooh, I wouldn't class the Harry Potter Movies as Brit movies and you can't say ANY Guy Ritchie film as "Swept Away" was a bloody disgrace!!! (IMHO)

I thought Harry Potter movies were Brit made? [Confused]

Has anyone seen "The history boys"?

What about Trainspotting, Snatch, Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels?? (which I suppose count as a Guy Ritchie movie) they deserve their own props! Formula 51 and most of Kubrick's movies are British or at least partially British made.

Harry Potter movies are British made, they just weren't entirely filmed in the UK. Mostly UK, but some US and some Germany as well.

The Full Monty is one for the girls'. ;-)

Rita, Sue and Bob Too is one of my fav's as well. It's hilarious.

I thought Harry Potter was British too.
