I don't want to clutter up the thread with irrelevant plaudits, but ... BRILLIANT IDEA!  Thanks very much.

Is The Last Emperor any good? I always get it confused with that Spielberg film Empire of the Sun! Think they both came out about the same time!

As a spectacle it's superb, as a human drama sporadically sublime, though the central character is perhaps excessively aloof.  Well worth three hours of your time.

Excellent thread sir. As my parents get The Times, I shall try and watch The Last Emperor.

No one going for The Wild Geese then? I've alreadyn got Wings Of Desire, and thought The Last Emperor was a little bit over-rated, personally.



yes, I know its a load of old bollocks, but I don't want to watch anything too demanding on a Sunday afternoon...

Great idea for a thread...I was only thinking to myself that other day how much I wished there was some way to sniff out all the free DVDs each week.

Anyway, I'll be getting all 3 as I haven't seen any, and even if I had I would probably buy them all anyway - who can sniff at the chance to expand their DVD library for 1 a pop.  (With quality films rather than bargain basement stuff anyway...)

The Wild Geese is brilliant. But I did only see it when I was young so I hope it remains good. Nothing in the Guardian this week?

Another one this weekend and it's one that must be checked out. It's one of my favourite films  of all time, Whistle Down The Wind Starring Hayley Mills and Alan Bates.


http://uk.imdb.com/title/tt0055618/

Seriously, if you haven't seen it, you have to buy The Telegraph tomorrow.

Nice one Frankie, I haven't seen that in ages. Looks like I'll be buying a load of papers this weekend too. That must be about five weeks in a row. Hopefully these freebies will continue.

Wild Geese every time.

The Last Emperor is a bit too worthy.

Wild Geese is a romp.

Yeah, and apparantly it's the 'best film ever made' according to ads. I should probably watch it then.

oooh! And another Frankie favourite. Henry Fonda is brilliant as Norman Thayer.

Buy it if you've not seen it before.

Bought the Telegraph just for Whistle Down The Wind today.

I got The Last Emperor, Whistle down the wind and On Golden Pond, I'm afraid this may end up in more clutter and more films than I know what to do with but anyway, I watched On Golden Pond and it is really good, The best performance I have seen Henry Fonda give and Katherine Hepburn is very good as well.

Is that it for this weekend? Saw Heat And Dust in the mid 80s. Not bad. But have the papers been told they've overdone the free DVD? Nothing last weekend and only one this weekend? Come on papers...flood those weekends with freebies.
