    I wouldn't mind another film - This is England 86 was a bit of a... well I just lost interest after 2 episodes, 4 wasn't near enough anyway imo, it could have been a lot better
    Get out
    The last episode was a corker, true fact.
    I indeed shed a tiny, glistening tear at the end. Ahh, Combo.

    lol, are they actually called that? sounds like something kids watch on CBBC
    haha no they either called them monsters or extra terrestrials.. but squiddlies is a term I've given them since it seems right.. this might have contributed to their lack of fear factor..

    "ooh look! another squiddly! :awesome:"

    Yo Cadeibfetch, the name that implies Welshness nothing too much though, how was your trip? You to see the Old firm derby live? lol

    Btw anyone else like last years Robin Hood with Russel Crowe? He was slated for his accent in the film but he wasn't even that bad, the film's ok - yeah I like films set in the middle ages but stilll
    Hey ¬¬ trip was good, all family so you can imagine some of it! but yeah my overwhelming thought was I'd love to make some films on those mountains And, erm, no... lol

    Yeah I liked Robin Hood, the accent (supposedly the 'most authentic' portrayal of it) was, let's say, interesting (lol) but yeah I liked it...

    I really enjoyed the film but still thought Russel Crowe went through 5 counties with every sentence!

    Planning on watching Network tonight, rather excited. :awesome:

    Also interested to see Beatrice Straight's performance in it, as she holds the record for smallest amount of screen time winning the Best Supporting Actress Oscar. Just five minutes and forty seconds!

    I know, right? It's fantastic. My favourite Hitchcock movie is either North by Northwest or Rear Window. I also have a love for Rope which I think is great.

    My opinion of Hitchcock improves with every film of his I watch. His 1950's output alone betters the entire careers of most directors. I actually can't choose a favourite; it's probably between Vertigo, North by Northwest, Rope and Rear Window, but it'll probably change as I watch more of his films.

    The very first Hitchock movie I watched was Rear Window and I was thinking it would just be one of those classics that people hyped, but actually turned out to be very disappointing. It wasn't. It surprised me so much that it's one of my favourite films of all time.

    The first Hitchcock film I watched was Psycho when I was really young (my Dad forced me to watch his favourites) and I was thinking at the time this is going to be some crappy, pretentious old film.... Wow, was I wrong. Birds, Vertigo, North by Northwest and Psycho are my favourites. I'd probably say Psycho above them all though, just because it was my first

    Yeah, Hitchcock seems to be universally loved when compared to someone like Kubrick who is pretty divisive. Especially since there's widely polarising views on 2001: A Space Odyssey.

    Admittedly, I'm more of a Dr. Strangelove kind of guy. But 2001 isn't my favourite at all, not even in his top 5 in my opinion. It wasn't enjoyable. I'd much rather watch Clockwork Orange, Shining, Full Metal Jacket or Lolita.

    But like you said, it certainly divides a room :p:

    Oh yeah, Dr. Strangelove is my favourite Kubrick movie by far. Sellers is just god-like in it.

    2001 or Barry Lyndon for me. 'Haters shall hate', as the internet says.

    Also, his Paths of Glory is probably one of the best war films ever, along with Cross of Iron, Thin Red Line (which I have now seen, **** yeah Terrence Malick), etc.

    My favourite Kubrick film remains A Clockwork Orange, however boring and predictable that may be. Full Metal Jacket is a close second (again, see the last comment). Barry Lyndon is a surprise third for me. Embarrassingly, I haven't seen 2001.

    What's with the sudden explosion in Marvel comic films, lately?
    Forget insignificant Marvel films this year. Have you seen next year's juggernauts? This year is a laugh.

    (Original post by Complex Simplicity)
    ok just seen The Fast and the furious 5.
    Sounds promising. How does it compare with the other films in the franchise?

    (Original post by Retro.spex)
    Why thank you
    Any films you're looking forward to this year?

    (Original post by Hedger)
    :laugh: I know Daniel Craig has a little bit of a love/hate thing among Bond fans but, he's probably my favourite. I love Sean Connery, obviously - if not just for Goldfinger. But his transformation of Bond to a more badass, raw and suave in a more manly way makes him the Bond for me. Loved Casino Royale and even Quantum (though it did have it's faults).
    I prefer Daniel Craig and the new direction the Bond franchise has taken. I, of course, appreciate and love some of the classic Bond films. Don't have a liking for the Brosnan films. It felt more 'Bourne' now, you have to miss some of the gadgets.

    I just watched Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark. I nearly forgot how crap Indiana Jones films are.
    I see the others have already had a real go at you. But I love the franchise, well with the exception of the Kingdom of the Crystal ****. They're not meant to be great and thought-provoking. They excel because they are fantastic action films, that old macho charm and ridiculous action. Like Die Hard. I love Die Hard. Don't diss Die Hard too. :pierre:

    HEY GUYS I'm back after a virtually internet-free jolly up in Scotland. What've I missed?
    Where about did you go? Did it rain? It rained, didn't it? Don't lie. You missed Sun. Lots of it.

    I don't want to over amp it up but imho it's easily the best beating the first film by a comfortable margin. Having the best characters from all the other films adds so much to this film, humour being the key ingredient supplied in bucket loads by Tyrese. The action is constant and builds so that momentum is never lost. But as I said, if you do watch it, stay till after the credits...
