    Hi all, good to see a great site dedicated to the Brill Britfilms!

    My own fave is definitely Get Carter, the 1971 Caine/Hodges version, naturally! But I also appreciate anything from films like Battle of Britain to British TV classics like Monty Python and Benny Hill.

    I look forward to debating the stuff on here!

    Not sure about your handle though. Not quite the sort of thing we expect from our members here, don'cha know. Can't you think of something else more fitting to British movies? It's not like you haven't got a heck of a lot to choose from.

    I'm not sure if he can change his name now, Windyridge. There doesn't seem to be a facility on our profile to change a name once we've chosen it and logged in with it. I can't see a way of doing it anyway.

    I didn't mean to cause any upset with my moniker? Just using some very British [Pythonesque] humour!

    I'm hoping to enjoy it here.

    What can I say? I live in a house some six miles away from where the late Peter Finch lived and performed in his early days before he met the Oliviers.

    I had wanted to choose a bland 'Henry Holland' type username which was neither twee or overly-familiar. So I decided on the barcode symbol which, unfortunately, people are now telling me is rather forbidding.

    I reckon cinema is the most influential of all mediums; I abhor how those demned Americans have dominated the industry for the last century; and I have a particular affection for those film people working in England in the 1940s.

    As a 'demned American' I will be sure to avoid your posts in future. Are you kidding with this?

    Hello, I`ve just joined the forum and want to introduce myself. I`m a 40 something with a huge interest in British movies and TV from the 60`s onwards and I`m already finding BritMovie a bit of a goldmine. My favourite actor is Oliver Reed (hence the moniker) favourite actress...Helen Mirren, maybe? but there are loads of others I would certainly watch and my film interests are fairly eclectic. Anyway, thanks for giving me an opportunity to explain myself and I look forward to interesting times ahead.

    Hi all. I'm Paul, 35, from Wakefield.

    Really into British TV/films from late 60s to 1990s.

    I've really got UK Gold to thank in the early 1990s (via Yorkshire Cable in Bradford) when they started re-running things like Juliet Bravo and The Sweeney.

    I was about 15 then, and soon became hooked on older series, and now have a large collection of DVDs. Many of which are from Network.

    Looking forward to keeping up to date with news on old tv and films from my era of interest - so much out there still to be discovered.

    Welcome OllieFan and Paul 1978! I can heartily recommend The Sweeney box set as the picture has been lovingly restored. As for Ollie, sadly missed.

    Thanks for admission to the group. This is Aaron, residing in SoCal. I'm on a mission to watch and review every classic noir/crime film I can get my hands on. This forum kept popping up while I was trying to track down a few rare Brit-noirs, so here I am. I enjoy chatting about the virtues of noir with anybody who will listen, or even those who won't. I live a noir life and I'm happy to come upon this resource. Talk to you soon, I've got to turn out the lights and get back to my films.
