    Should I watch Lost or The Event? :holmes:
    Lost. I've just started too.

    And let's pretend that Phalanges is here so we can ask him.

    What do FilmFanaticSoc folks make of Crash? I had an ambivalent reaction to it.
    Great film. Its worth giving it a watch just for the ending. It was a bit boring at first, but nevertheless I enjoyed it.

    Is it true (in essence) that we, the British, can only really handle a few minutes of action before we get bored whereas Americans revel in hours of non-stop action?

    For audiences, no; just look at box office takings. The Expendables did very well here, and only advertised itself as all-out action. Not to mention how many flagship British franchises have large action sequences (Bond sticks out in my mind particularly).

    In terms of making films, british productions rarely have the budgets of Hollywood, so find it difficult to have expensive action sequences as long, which might be where this idea comes from. But I've never heard this argument before, where did you get it from?

    Hm, interesting. It did intrigue me a lot at the time and I've been thinking about it recently.

    I cannot say for sure. It was a few weeks go from either the IGN film podcast or from Kermode on his podcast. It was said by a British person (and considering the former podcasters are American), I'm leaning towards Kermode.

    But you listen to Kermode quite regularly (?) but haven't heard of it so I ... can't say for sure where this comes from. They were discussing a film which had too little or too much action - Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 possibly.

    We can try considering we jumped a 100 members in 2 nights a few weeks ago (but my loyalties are divided by another group :ninja:). Getting beat by the Economics and I love my curves societies ffs. :facepalm2:

    Our postcount is certainly moving very fast considering it being a new society and all.
