Like a lot people on here my Dad passed on his love of war movies and westerns to me so I’ll mention some of them,

The Professionals : my favourite western, Lee Marvin and Burt Lancaster, it doesn’t get any better.
The Dirty Dozen: Lee Marvin again. Love it when he says to maggot, “You’ve got two choices, you can either march or I can beat your brains out”
The Magnificent seven
The Searchers
The Bridges of Toko Ri
The Guns of Navarone
The Dam Busters
Bridge on the river Kwai
Gallipoli

Good example of how the language develops. Only someone who was affecting it would call them the pictures or refer to a film of the flicks. Everyone calls them the movies.

Yeh gotta sayI’m from the generation that went to the “movies”not the “pictures”
Bazza (who I respect big time as an old school knowledge ) also caught me out with “peanut butter “ instead of peanut paste. I’ve been saying that all my life I never knew

The pedants go a bit over the top sometimes. I bet Bazza says ‘soft drink’ like everyone else and not ‘cool drink’ as we used to do.
He wouldn’t say ‘soda’ though.
