Music, Films and TV Series

Recommended Posts

We've got a Music thread, but we haven't got a Film thread so here it is...

 

Discuss anything you want on Film here from the last film you watched to what you are looking forward to watching. What about the best film you've watched in recent years? Also feel free to recommend films to watch.

 

I'll go first...

 

Last three films I've watched after ordering them from Amazon:

 

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes - Brilliant. Good action scenes and effects, loved the hostile relationship between the humans and the apes.

 

Noah - Meh. Thought it dragged on a bit. But good effects and plenty of action.

 

Guardians of the Galaxy - I do love a good superhero movie this take it to a whole new level. Love Groot. Already looking forward to the next one.

 

I AM GROOOTTTT!!! :D

 

Best films I've watched in recent years and would recommend you to watch them if you haven't already:

 

Captain Phillips

Avatar

The Dark Knight trilogy

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes...will add more...my mind seems to have gone blank :D

 

**Mods feel free to move this to wherever it needs to go**

I loved Guardians but not a big fan of the other 2.

My 1st few recommendations are

The Departed

In Bruges

Full Metal Jacket

 

I agree on In Bruges. What a cracking film

I thought Tom Hardy was very good in it. But I think it was poorly scripted and directed. Didn't enjoy it very much despite his good turn as both brothers.

It is on my list of things to watch. Does it live up to the hype?

I am currently working my way through series 2 of The Blacklist but intend to give Narcos a try after that.

I'm getting into narcos next. All my mates have raved about it.

 

Currently watching True Detective and it's fantastic. Highly recommend it to anyone looking for something to watch. Seriously watch it if you haven't.

Just finished Narcos the other week. Brilliant show. Love how they use original footage and also allow the spanish speaking characters to actually speak Spanish and not some broken down english to please the american crowd. They guy playing Escobar is doing a great job.

 

Watched the documentary "cocaine cowboys" right afterwards. It's a two hours documentary about the influx of cocaine into Miami when it all started.

 

Watched "Deliver us from Evil" a while back and that was one of the best suspense movies I've seen in a while. "The Visit" was decent entertainment too as was "The Babadook".

Narcos was amazing. Loved it. There's an Amazon series - 'The Man in the High Castle' which gripped me on its pilot. About what could've happened to the U.S. If the Nazis had won WW2.

 

In Bruge is definitely one of my favourites. Shawshank Redemption is a classic.

 

If all goes well, I may be filming a horror film soon... That'll obviously be the best think that's ever been produced. Ever. ;)

It looks very good, enjoyed the first series after a rough start.

 

Really enjoyed last night's Walking Dead as well.

    • Fry for 15 million is probably the right price no disputing that. But ending up essentially paying 6-8 million for Gibson, wages aside, I have a problem with he'd do a decent job on the pitch no doubt but at a time where we are reigning in spending (rightly in my opinion) I don't see why we need a 6-8 million pound player especially at CB right now we aren't rounding up the promotion band and moving for Bolasies/Ritchies anymore I just put a Gibson move in that bracket to be honest the impact on the team minimal, relative cost high and feels like we'd be back to square 1 I'd rather see us bank the cash for a couple of years at most spend 3 million on 1 player if he's key. If we didn't give a f about finances as fans getting Gibson back would be universally welcomed the problem is I've been told to care repeatedly over the years and I hated paying 7 million for Flint, hated the 6 million pound Joe Bryan bids as well paying that money for defenders in this league is just burning money in my opinion. I want prudence from us financially that's all, we preach it as a club sometimes then seem to lose our minds whether it's trying for Besic last year for 6 million or Gibson now I'm very sceptical as a club we should be paying those kind of fees whilst we're in this division that's a main part of my problem even if it's technically a 'write off' we're losing a guaranteed 7 figure income off the books to bring him and whatever wage he's on back it seems out of whack with our priorities to me.
    • You make it sound too easy 😋 I genuinly doubt Ayala, Clayton and Howson had any decent interest that would promt us to sell. Clayton I think we'd have sold fairly cheaply. I think the players haven't been willing to just sign the first reduced contract we offered and probably wants to see how things developed and whether any teams would show interest. We can't force them to sign lesser contracts and we can't make other teams buy them. The offers would have to make sense too. It would probably be better to just let Ayalas contract run down than sell him for less than a million last summer.
    • But we knew there contract were running down before this season started and talks with these players regarding contracts should have been held pre season and those who wouldn't sign new deals should have been moved on in the summer, ok I agree moving on Shotton, Gestede and Johnson was tried but Clayton, Howson and in particular Ayala would of still commanded half decent fees
    • Thats a bit harsh. You can only sell if there is interest and we can't just offer the players the same terms. Of the players out of contract I'm only interested in keeping Ayala and Howson anyway if they agree to reduced terms in line with the financial realities. The rest aren't really good enough and wouldn't ever command a decent fee. I'm sure we would have gladly sold players like Clayton, Gestede and Johnson in the summer if any other teams wanted them.
    • I thnnk you are overthinking it a bit. It doesn't sound like we want to sell Fry to finance a deal for Gibson. However we will accept a bid for Fry if it's above our valuation. If some desperate PL club swoops in and offers, say, 15 million we'd be mad not to accept as there is no way he is worth that much. Fry has yet to reach the levels Gibson showed while with us, so a match fit Gibson is better than Fry's current level. I really don't want to lose Fry as I think he has a great future with us. I want them both and it sounds doable. Defering the last 4.3 million payments from Burnley isn't the best, but a total deal for 6 million for Gibson sounds almost unbelievable and if he falls in line with the current wage structure we should be all over that. At 26 he has at least 7 good years in him and might even make himself attractive to another big move if we aren't promoted.
