I would say Italian Job with Zulu a close second. But what about you? That's the burning question on these here lips.
I was going to slap down Zulu and Italian Job as soon as I saw the title of the thread. :(
I love both of them, I do.
between Get Carter and Zulu
I have seen many of his films...or at least can't think of anything i've seen with him in.
But then I also love Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Sherlock Holmes Without a Clue and Educating Rita and the Italian Job.
He rules, frankly.
i've only seen 3 of the 120 films with him in. The other two being Goldmember and Muppet Xmas Carol. I am actually really shocked.
is a jingoistic piece of crap.
michael caine is balls.
Michael Caine starred as Len Deighton's spy with no name in the 60s movies Funeral in Berlin, The Ipress File etc. Great books, good movies.
He did that Frederick Forsythe one too...uhm, Fourth Protocal. t'was ok. MC was tres cool, and now it seems like he plays the cutesy ecentric Brit. I like him better as a low class James Bond.
Alfie is an excellent, ground breaking film, with the talking to the camera stuff. Educating Rita's alright too
is actually a well-plotted and good book, despite Forsyth's right-wing evils. I have a feeling the film's a bit limp by comparison (from what I remember).
Is pretty swish.
is quite good, and it was free with esquire.
Yes it's sentimental but it's one of the few that's low on Micheal Caine and since I'm not a big fan that's how I like it.
I couldn't make head nor tail of it.
Still, any Caine is always good Caine.
I know this probably makes me a bad girl, but I'm quite into the casual misogyny of Alfie.
ace,never bettered films are Get Carter and Alfie.
I Like the ipcress file, ciderhouse rules and educationg rita.
I love the fact that he doesn't invent an entirely new persona for each film,
he is Michael Caine in a different Life/role, its what makes his acting more believable.
I think that Alfie is a fantastic film, totally utterly groundbreaking and heartbreaking....
I once saw him describing one of his tchniques and it seems so sensible.
"To add realism, even if you dont have a line while other characters are having a conversation try to look as if you are thinking of what to say to join in"
When talking in his famous 'to camera' mode he never looks directly at it always slightly to one side.
think it has to be get carter - a bit predictable of me to say that or alfie though Funeral in Berlin is pretty good
I take it bamos voted for the Cider House Rules (why? coz it does!)
that man who would be King? that ones good
