    Have recently joined the forum and just wish to say hello.My name is Mark Davies

    I have been aware of the Britmovie website for some time,but thought that with my interest in British Film,
    and my abject failure to engage others adequately in my fascination regarding the matter of aspect Ratio's.I thought I'd
    keep on trying.Britmovie seemed the next place to find a needy expression.

    I am a member of the Hammer forum over on Yahoogroups.Although sadly it is a dwindling source of discussion about Hammer,
    despite some of the old dogs still chewing the bone.

    I felt a little in my element recently and got involved in the argument over the Aspect Ratio of The Curse Of Frankenstein in the Home Theatre Forums.
    There are some really rabid contributors over there,but I felt I was keeping the British End up by firmly supporting the 1.37 OAR release by Hammer of
    the Blu-ray release of the COF.Or maybe you don't agree ?

    On the same lines it's a pity the Hammerfilms blog has dried up.I thought that was an excellent move by the present owners of Hammer to keep their
    public informed.It also meant that those of us who buy Hammer Blu-rays could let Hammer know much more directly about our views.
    Hammer I think were very creditable in doing this,but now equally criticisable for having stopped it.

    I hope it starts up again with further releases of thier back catalogue.

    I don't want to give the impression it's all Hammer of course.British Films are my main interest,Ealing,Bond,Carry-on Amicus,Tigon and the rest.
    Though I am sad to report that the current British film industry,and the industry in general leaves me a little less motivated.
    Since the virtual disappearance of the use of celluloid and film projection from our theatres,I think it not quite right to
    now call it a Film Industry.Although not keen on his films,I find myself in agreement with Quentin Tarantino on this.It's now more like Public Television.
    I have yet to see anything at the theatres that equals the type of quality presentation you can only get with film.

    Very sad,and even with the impossible becoming available for Video makers,it all looks a little bloodless,(in the non Jason Statham sense).
    Of course I do my best,and when anything British is at least made using Film,I'll give it a try,I'll have a look.But as soon as I see ARRIRAW or RED EPIC
    in the technical specs,I give it a wide berth.And I read with a sorrowful shake of the head that now PANAVISION are to come up with their version
    of big screen telly.Sad but inevitable I suppose.

    So it is, that for me generally, Film means British Film,and British Films that were likely to have been made from around 1950 to 1984,with a few others
    sprinkled in from later years and some from the earlier years .
    That's me,and I'm glad to be here.

    I hope I'm "introducing myself" at the right location...this is quite a large website to navigate at first glance. I have been a fan of British films for as long as I can recall, with a particular affection for films of the 1940s & 50s, and a large affection for the actors of that era. I was born in Australia in 1953 (maternal grandparents were Cockneys so that's a good connection to this site, right?), and my first exposure was when we got a TV in '59 and I was instantly entranced by the ITC ROBIN HOOD TV series featuring actors like Alan Wheatley (Sheriff of Nottingham) and Alexander Gauge (Tuck). I began to notice their voices more than anything which soon led me to the great film actors with distinctive tones....Richardson, James Mason, Stewart Granger, and so many great character actors. Eventually I became a part of show biz as a voice-over specialist and mimic here in Sydney, where I have worked fairly consistently since 1973. I love so many UK films it's hard to enumerate but suffice to say they range from DEAD OF NIGHT to little B-mysteries like 1962's TIME TO REMEMBER with Harry H. Corbett. I hope that's a sufficient introduction, and I'm most happy to be involved with this website.

    I was inspired to get the film after a recent visit to Prague where i heard about the amazing story of Operation Anthropoid.

    best,
    Greg

    ps. Easily my fave brit film of all time is Nuts In May :)

    Hello, my name is Rob and I'm a big film fan and 'collector' of DVDs. I especially like British films made in the 1950s and early 1960s whether they be comedies or of a more serious nature although I don't adhere to this time period only.
    I'm living in South Wales having moved here from the London area in 2012 and discovered this site whilst searching for various obscure and hard to find films. Hopefully I will find them and I hope to be able to contribute to the discussions on here.

    Hi all
    Nice site to find and with a lot of interesting reading, I started collecting. Old British movies in the early nineties, a few of the old American films are good as well but the Brit films have more of an attraction to me.

    Have fun

    Hi all,

    I am a 54 yr guy, I like serious drama, sci-fi, but almost anything if its made well. I put Mike Leigh's 'Secrets and Lies' as favourite in my profile but I think its actually the old BBC John le Carre crime dramas with Alec Guinness 'Tinker, tailor, soldier, spy' and 'Smiley's People' but I was asked for favourite film, not series. I have both of these on DVD and watch them over and over, never failing to find more incredible nuances in the character of Smiley; Alec Guinness I think is the master of the understatement, fantastic in these!
    Today I discovered the entire Mike Leigh, 'Four days in July' on Youtube, I had never seen it so its a good day:) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UENAU65ggsQ

    Thanks

    Welcome to the site, new members. nisi69 - John Thaw was the guv'nor, I'm old enough to remember The Sweeney when it first came out! And pause, I can't agree enough about Alec Guinness as Smiley - genius. Again, remember watching these when they were first broadcast. Did you know BBC2 would repeat the previous weeks episode of TTSS the night before the next instalment! Much debating as to who the mole Gerald was.

    Hello Everyone,
    I'm Huw from Aldershot in Hampshire and just wanted to introduce myself to everyone. I was introduced to the cinema at a very early age, and was lucky to grow up in the 60s and 70s when visiting the cinema was still a real experience with usually two main features plus trailers and great advertisements. I have always been a huge fan of British Films especially from the 1940s and 1950s. Currently I am writing a book on the wonderful "Diana Dors" I am really delighted to be part of this great community of fellow British enthusiasts. Before I close can I put out a request? I am trying to find a copy of the film "The Little Ballerina" from 1948 and directed by Lewis Gilbert. I believe it was available on a Region 1 VHS and one point but have never been able to locate a copy. I can use both DVD and VHS, so if anyone can help I would be very grateful! Happy Viewing Everyone! Huw

    Hi, all, my name is Sam (not really, but you might all be homicidal maniacs and I don't want to reveal too much about myself )

    I am a big fan of sit-coms, British and American, I also enjoy period drama tv/film in general.

    I also collect images of actresses, singers and celebs and I admin at another site (not sure if I'm allowed to mention it's name or link to it as it's mainly adult themed site)
