Dr Goldfoot and the Bikini Machine.

Not 'good' exactly. Terrible, really. But worth watching just for the irresistable title.

It's not bad for a modern Brit Horror.
Have you seen Death Line?

I don't think Death Line is brilliant or anything, but it's ok.
I've only watched Creep, once. I'll have to give it another outing. Very Happy

Those films aren't my fave type of horror though. I'm more into supernatural horror, gothic horror, and the usual Hammer/Amicus stuff. Cool

Made In Dagenham.

Feisty 60s ladies go on strike after being refused equal pay.
Excellent cast (Sally Hawkins,excellently backed up by Bob Hoskins, Geraldine James, Miranda Richardson, Daniel Mays, Andrea Riseborough)
and good direction. Yes, it's over-sentimental and feel-good, and Jamie Winstone's character seemed to have escaped from Hollyoaks. But it
does celebrate community values, and-gasp!-it actually shows trade unionists as nice people.

In an era when most films aimed at women are glorifying narcissism,
consumerism and celebrity culture (Hello Sex and the City 2 and
Eat Pray Love!) , Made in Dagenham is a genuinely enjoyable
film focusing on women. Lads,bring your girlfriend, sister or mum to
it and they'll probably love it, and you will too. Cool

Hitchcock's Foreign Correspondent. Apart from some 'This is your war too, America' clunkiness, this is a pretty decent John Buchan-ish thriller with a US journo stumbling on a spy ring and a kidnapping and a fake-assasination and a traitor-in-our-midst etc etc. Includes a surprisingly graphic shot-in-the-face moment.

You have good taste in WWII films, it's propaganda, but not in-your-face about it, plus Americans could learn a little bit of history from it. I once spoke with one especially stupid American who was absolutely convinced that nothing before the 7th of December 1941 constituted WWII, even though most of the western world was at war by that point.

Talking about ww2 with daft Americans is usually a bit more trying than it is with dumbarses from other countries. I get the impression that due to the cold war, tons of American schoolkids weren't told about the extent & significance of Russia's contribution (or something), I usually end up baby walking them through facts & figures. Maybe I'm giving them too much credit & they're just wilfully ignorant of anything the US didn't do

Sadly I think it's a case of the latter, the particular American I was arguing with dimissed everything before America's entry into the war as "just another war in Europe", he fled with his tail between his legs when I mentioned the conflict in North Africa, the Japanese encroachment on China and Canada and Australia's contribution to the war effort. I tend to stop posting on threads about WWII on discussion forums the moment some idiot says "if it wasn't for us you'd be typing this in German" because by that point they've scraped all the way through the barrel and have nothing more to add to the discission.

A lot of Americans seem to be convinced that it was the US which one the First World War, too.

Oh my god, how can anyone come to such a stupid conclusion? They were only in it for a year, and the war was almost over by that point anyway.

A lot of Americans (and others) also don't seem to remember that the
US and Britain sent troops to fight the Bolsheviks during the Russian
Civil War. There's an excellent book called "Lies My Teacher Told Me"
by the American historian James Loewen, which tells how US history
teachers and textbook printers are pressured to put about a bland,
conformist version of US history.
