    Some brilliant films there mind, I agree with The Man Who Would Be King, classic performances by Caine and Connery.

    Some great quotes in it my favourite being:

    Billy Fish: He wants to know if you are gods?
    Peachy: Not gods — Englishmen. Which is the next best thing.

    Pointless and absolutely shit list.

    Death Trap isn't even on the list and should be in the top 10 at least.
    Christmas Carol should be higher.

    The Man who would be King is a proper boy’s own story that all boys should watch. Magic.

    Agree, there is also no way his role in Harry Brown is worse than his role in Miss Congeniality.

    I went to London with my Mam when I was a teenager. She took me to see Death Trap at the theatre. The Michael Caine part was played by William Franklin who was the fella with the deep booming baritone voice that some people may remember from ‘Masterspy’ on the telly. I think this was before the Michael Caine fillum

  16. The Man Who Would Be King would be equal top with Dirty Rotten Scoundrels. Love both of them. 3rd would be Zulu.

    I'm not sure I'd put Zulu that high. It's a tremendous film, arguably the best he's been in, but I don't particularly think it's a tremendous film particularly because of him.

    Get Carter or DRS, both fantastic.

    Caine isn't one of my favourite actors but I have a soft spot for him in California Suite with Maggie Smith.
