    Posted: 16 Feb 2019 at 2:43pm
I'm considering making a List Challenge which focuses on the MMA community's favourite movies. I've been posting MMA themed music lists there for a while, but movie lists are much more successful. While all my other movie lists posted do have the MMA name on because of the user name I'm signed in as, this one would also feature our name in the list title.

I'm aware that this obviously isn't anything to do with what we actually do here, but it's free exposure for the site brand and it also may be interesting to see what kind of movies of bunch of metalheads have in common. I'm not looking for or trying to build a ranking for this. I'll just add any movie that is name dropped here to the list and publish it as soon as it reaches a reasonable length. I'll decide what reasonable actually means once I'm able to judge how many of you are actually interested in taking part in this and how many movies are put forward.

Otherwise, please treat this topic as any other discussion in the general forum.

More info needed for these ones to add them. 

I'm presuming 'The Battle Of Britain' is Battle Of Britain (1969), Suspira is the original, same for Get Carter. There are three films called Deep Red and four called Inferno.

Correct on Battle Of Britain. Suspira - 77, Deep Red -75 and Inferno - 80 are all directed by Italian Dario Argento. Get Carter also original with Michael Caine.
