Films watched this week
After writing all that about the kind of films I like I haven't really had time to write anything up, but this week's viewing has bagged a few goodies.
- Til Death Us Do Part (1969) - the film of the sitcom, which follows Alf Garnett and family through the Blitz to a new life in a high rise. It was on after Laughter In The House, a history of the British sitcom. This week it's Holiday on the Buses, shot at Pontins Prestatyn, where we went on our hollybobs.
- Death Race 2000 (1975) - schlock horror where the race is on to kill the most pedestrians. As featured on Bad Movies. I liked it.
- Festival (2005) - British film about comedians at the Edinburgh festival. Not very good.
- To Sir, With Love (1965) - lovely, heartwarming film with bonus band, Lulu and The Mindbenders. There is a whole site dedicated to this film with loads of stills.
- Gay Purr-ee (1962) - early Chuck Jones feature-length animation about a load of French cats. Similar to, but made long before The Aristocats (1970). Nice.
- Half of This Island Earth (1955), one third of Tron (1982). Got distracted both times and gave up.
