    If you google the clue, you should get the answer pretty soon. Or is that cheating?

    Crytpic crosswords are one of those things that take lots of practice.

    Puddles' earlier link may help: http://www.crosswordtools.com/cryptic-crosswords.php

    To break some down:

    Lots of The Bear's ones are anagrams:

    Ligated vinyl thighs ? they may bring death to spies.... ( 3, 6, 9 )

    Rearrange the letters of ligated vinyl thighs to get...The Living Daylights. A bond film which involves "death to spies".

    My earlier one was a hidden word:

    Stuck in tight angle during this movie? (7)

    "Stuck" is a synonym for tangled, and "in" means look inside the next few words, and the answer is literally there.

    Really fun when you get the hand. Anagrams and hidden words are often the easiest types of clues to get started on.
    a good overview chaz !!

    here is another clue ( not films ) :

    mashed tin peas are unmentionable ( 7 )
