In fact I think the majority of my top ten were made when the studios still had most of the power, or at least were still made on location and not someone's backroom with a same story different names script. The biggest no no for me is the word franchise.
The Great Escape must have been on British tele more than any other film. There's a reason for that "cast, story and script". I'm far more Anglo than Yank but I do think the 4th July scene is superb.
I notice even Ricky Gervaise showed respect for the older actors, Pacino and De Niro when he hosted his last disrespectful, hilarious, Golden Globe awards in 2020.
