    Where Eagles Dare

    ★★★

    First watched on BBC1 on Boxing Day in 1979. Back then it was the best film I'd ever seen. It seemed very familiar on this rewatch, even though I'm pretty sure I last saw it in the early 1980s.

    Was expecting more of a nostalgic buzz from this viewing. Miffed that my rosy retrospection creates unrealistic expectations.

    Joyously entertaining zombie comedy. Inventive, well-observed and very funny.

    Taut, understated payback thriller from Soderbergh. Stylish, slickly edited and hugely enjoyable.
