Yes, our parents forced us to watch it as babies hoping that when we grew up we could get the colonies going again


But yeah you are sort of right, Zulu and Bridge over the river kwai were standard sunday afternoon movie fare on british TV when i was growing up, watched a lot of these with my Grandad. Good films

Not forgetting to mention a Bridge too Far and Waterloo.

Your toast has been burnt and no amount of scraping will get rid of the black bits.

Zul is a dam fine film, the acting is I fell really strong and I think Caine is better in this that he was in the more popular and well-known The Italian Job.

Zulu, is perhaps my all-time favorite movie, I watched continually back in my youth, I could quote huge sections of the film, and all the time I was painting up my first imperial guard army, (Praetorians clearly). It was all jolly good fun, shame my army and the movie are both still back in blighty, have to pick them up next time I return to the mother land.

Big fan of the old Zulu. Top stuff right there, ts just a shame that my VHS of it makes the dialogue very difficult to understand.

Does anyone know if there is a DVD out?
