Rise to the Challenge | 50 British Films to see before you die!

I thought of this literally 5 minutes ago. As I seem to be hungry for new films and new perspectives in life, I thought I’d ask you all to join me on this trip to enlightment… Well, sort of. I am going to post a list of 50 British Films and tick them as I watch them. I will be updating the list on a separate page of ‘Musings’, under the name of ‘5o British Films Challenge’ – make sure you check it out! Also, if you want to join the ride, feel free to copy the titles and tick them yourself, whether it is on your blog or even as a comment below. I would love you to have you along. Let’s start, shall we?

– Also, do you want me to review them? Lemme know!

  1. Superb films all.
    1 or 2 glaring omissions (but then this is your post, not mine) …
    Love Actually (bit of a chick flick in places, but Richard Curtis at his best)
    In Bruges (darker than 85% cocoa chocolate, but possibly Irish with English ‘bits’)
    50 has a better ring than 52 though!

  2. Ooh, and Billy Elliot? They’re both great films, which inspired/ or were inspired by popular West-End musicals.
