A little rain on your parade. NETFLIX has gotten increasingly WOKE and its offerings reflect that. You'll see.

Dip, I didn't want to be the one to mention that. Thanks.

Welcome to the 21st century, David, and good for SoD. You've probably seen these except, possibly, Brazil. It's the Monty Python version of Orwell's "1984".

The African Queen
The Third Man
Citizen Kane

My five - not necessarily in order of preference.

Lion in Winter
Master and Commander
Henry V [Kenneth Branagh as Henry]
Titfield Thunderbolt

Bob, The African Queen. You have restored my faith in humanity. Managed to buy a version a few years back. Bogey and Kate.

The Life of Brian
The Holy Grail
Blazing Saddles
Lawrence of Arabia
Gone with the Wind

Could be stranded on a desert island with those five and would obstruct the rescue party.


In no particular order,
Dark Star
Young Frankenstein
Life of Brian
It's a Wonderful Life

Loz you'll be having to revise some as in our current climate our Wokesters-In-Charge have shoved Gone With The Wind completely down the memory hole and as for Blazing Saddles they've demanded its possibly racist bits be excised so that the next time it'll be scheduled for airing it'll be announced the time to start begins around 2000 hours and it'll be over by 2007.

Hardly enough time for any but a handful of popcorn and maybe, perhaps, a single Milk Dud.

Jeez, JK, I saw Gone with the Wind had, err, gone with the wind, but Blazing Saddles too!?

For Gawd's sake, that film was as anti-racist, anti-slavery, pro-Liberty, pro-Freedom, pro-Equality as you could make a film - surely only the brain-dead with no sense of humour would be unable to spot that!?

I think I just answered my own questions.


Time for America to get upwind of these gone with the wind folks and their anti-law enforcement attitudes ...



Humphrey won the Oscar for best actor as Charlie Allnut. Kate was great in everything she did.
