    I've been watching the first season of Community, and I was a little unsure what all the fuss was about. It's a very funny sitcom, and certainly better than a lot of stuff on TV at the minute, but given all of the hype I was expecting a little bit more.

    That all changed about halfway through the run, when it suddenly hit it's groove and became one of the sharpest, funniest parodies about films around. Episode 21 (Contemporary American Poultry) is one of the smartest mobster skits I've ever seen. If you are interested in the show, I'd recommend starting with that episode so that you can see how good it gets.

    btw anyone else seen Apollo 18? Heard like barely anyone talking about it
    Everybody that I've seen talk about it were of the general consensus that it was terrible.

    The Final cut. I actually didn't watch it in the end, I was like 15 minutes into the film and realised that I was more in the mood for an action film rather than something philosophical
    I sighed at this. :pierre:

    Breaking Bad is brilliant. I love how TV has stuff that is far, far superior than films. Of course, TV does benefit from having episodes and for every bloody amazing show, there's about 100 terrible ones. Seriously though, watch Breaking Bad, Bryan Cranston is awesome and deserves the three best actor Emmy's he's won for it. Coen brother fans will enjoy the show a lot, it's quite dark in its humour.

    I honestly find nothing more boring than a slow sci-fi film . 2001: A Space Odyssey and Solaris rank as the most boring films I've ever seen.

    the film includes, amongst other things: robot aliens, angst-ridden teens, cleavage-wielding soul takers, dark overlords, cross-dressing retards, pregnant 14-year-old cougars, macho scientists and Santa Claus.
    Greatest film summary ever?

    Just watched Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy. Very impressive film, brilliantly done.

    I did feel, though, that the big reveal of the mole's identity was a bit diminished, because it seemed rather arbitrary whether it was Tinker, Tailor or Soldier. I suppose his link with Prideaux and his role in the aftermath of the Budapest mission added some significance, but something could probably have been dredged up for any of the three.

    Also,am I right in thinking that the woman that Prideaux saw being shot was Irena, Tar's girlfriend?

    Yeah I thought that, bit of an anti-climax tbh, and I wondered whether the other three were actually also involved or not, did they get fired or was George just sitting in an empty room that they would then fill at the end?

    And yes it was her.

    I don't think they were involved, but I'd guess they were fired, because they were either complicit or taken in by the scam.

    Thought so. Poor Rickie.

    I think Tom Hardy is a really good find for filmmakers recently - I loved him in Inception then TTSSpy and then I saw him in Warrior tonight and he was really superb!

    yeah maybe the anti-conspiracy theorist feeling among people these days drives home the general dislike of a film like this - and it just plain sucked

    Phalanges - it's good that you're into community, really genuinely funny show imo

    on a random note, I wonder what the Mortal instruments film will end up being like

    As long as it is as distinct from the existing versions as De Palma's was from Hawks', I don't see the problem.
