    I think it has more than aged well. I think it has matured into a classic movie that not only has genuinely fresh humour but resonates with timeless philosophical themes.

    It is February 2nd this Friday so if you are staying in then watch punxatawney Phil strut his stuff in his 25th anniversary year...

    Agreed. GD has become and under-rated classic and is timeless.

    Many really great films mentioned in these posts. Reaching way back, I'd put in a mention for Hitchcock's "The Thirty-nine Steps," as it broke ground in so many ways.

    But almost all of my friends in the film business--I was in the business for years as a screenwriter--will list "The Godfather" as possibly the greatest film of all time. Have to agree it's a masterpiece.

    Did I mention a few classics from my formative years?

    The Dambusters
    633 Squadron
    In Which we Serve
    The Battle of Britain

    How I ended up in green baggy skin, and not the RAF or the Navy is beyond me.

    For just a supposed comedian, Bill Murray has been in some great films over his career.

    He made a mistake doing "Lost In Translation".
    He's too "expectantly non-commital" as I put it. Like, he says something blank-faced and expects it to be appreciated, but really the humour is only in is mind.

    Having just re-watched it AGAIN, I'll throw in "Zulu".....and, to a lesser degree, "Zulu Dawn".

    Tallyho chaps and chocks away for the 80th anniversary viewing of The Battle Of Britain



    The expansive footage for the 1969 movie uses scores of real spitfires, hurricanes, Me109s, stukas and He111s and was filmed from a converted B-25 before the days of CGI
