    Because I don't want to just choose movies that appeal to me, if you would like to participate in the film club, I invite you to list up to three suggestions for January 2014. I am limiting the suggestions to three each in order to make it easier and faster for me to put together a small poll on January 1st. You can suggest three more again for February. I will try to pick movies suggestions from different participants as time goes by or until we come up with a better method. I will also try to choose movies that appear multiple times in the suggestions. I also will be attempting to give a broad range of dates (of production, and when the story takes place).Bretwalda Warnell

    There are some great movies here and the 3-with-a- theme sounds like a good idea, but I am not sure how many of those fit a British theme, other than possibly The Longest Day & Run Silent Run Deep? How about a set of movies close-ish to where the podcast  is up to:The Vikings (1958)The Sword in the Stone (1963)The War Lord (1965)Alfred the Great (1969)Excalibur (1981)Beowulf (2007)Valhalla RisingThe Secret of Kells (2009)How To Train Your Dragon (2010).

    I'm still way behind on the podcast, if the plan is too keep the films to british themes a theme like biographies or ww2 will still work, and plenty of films on royalty. I like the viking feel to your list.

    We do want to keep a British theme… but colonial/British empire movies work too.I too endorse the three of a theme... So why don't we declare January a Viking/post-Roman, pre-Norman theme... British connection (film maker, setting etc.) is imperative though. If it is a stretch then at least justify why the film should be included as under a British theme. Bretwalda Warnell

    Beowulf would be good for the time period. We'll be spoilt for choice once we get to the middle ages, the Saxon era is a little more sparsely populated though.Edit: Anyone seen / know about this? http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0906775/
