    If you didn't know it was coming, this was one of the best endings of a film. (If you haven't seen the film and don't know the ending, this is a spoiler so don't watch it.) But since it was made more than 50 years ago ... I figure a spoiler alert could be superfluous.

    Out of the whole crop of the films that followed on from this one ... I still think this first one was the best.

    Another great ending to a film is this final scene from 'Edge of Tomorrow.' That laugh Tom Cruise gives to Emily Blunt sums up all the time-loop chaos his character has been going through. It's a sort of Ground Hog Day with barbed wire.

    Some might remember back in the day BBC TV used to show 'Interludes' to fill in holes in the schedule. One of them was a time lapse film of a trip by rail from London to Brighton which did the whole journey in 4 minutes. This was filmed in 1953. Years later the same was done again in 1983 and again in 2013 and they did a bit of clever synchronization to show all three alongside each other in parallel. From left to right, same journey over 60 years.

    I think possibly Michael Douglas's best part. A dark jaundiced view of modern society as a man suddenly decides he's had enough and decides to walk home across Los Angeles to his estranged wife and child. He becomes increasingly more insane as he moves through bleak city landscapes. It's not a happy film, but it has power.

    Started by Kubrick and repeated over and over in SciFi films the rolling by of some huge spacecraft has been a standard shot. So no less than Mel Brooks decided to take the piss out of it in 'Spaceballs' with his usual style. :lol:

    This is a demonstration on how to pass a job interview. Mike Ehrmantraut earning a few bob on the side in Better Call Saul.

    The Facts of Life as presented by Eddie Temple (Michael Gambon) in Layer Cake, one of the best British crime films ever made. And a great sound track to boot.
