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**

All the prominent anti-vaxxers on social media have jumped on it, saying Hawkins was an anti-vaxxer and was forced to get the covid vaccination by the rest of the band, and conversely died as a result

The jockeys must be feckin tiny 🤷‍♂️

It should be a good watch. Hes definitely a what if regarding the Boro if he had stayed on for another couple of years. The Bobby Robson one on Netflix is worth the watch as well.

I watched legend. Tom hardy was great when portraying Ronnie. And am looking forward to seeing Creed

 

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.

Not a film but has anyone been watching Narcos? Im 3 episodes in and its brilliant so far

 

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.

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.

    • I honestly believe a full season under Wilder in the LCM role would show everyone just how good he is. I think if you took him out of our midfield you'd see how bad and unbalanced it is. McGree and Crooks won't work because neither of them cover enough ground or do the defensive side of the game.  Howson I love but let's be honest he's not a traditional out and out CDM. He losses the ball too often in bad positions and his positioning for CDM can be quite poor. He brings commitment, energy and workrate though.  For me in midfield we need a LWB, CDM and an RCM. I would drop Crooks to the bench or move him on. I know that he's scored ten goals this season but I believe we can sign players that more suit Wilders system with energy, pressing and intensity. I would keep him for the bench but personally would look to replace him in the starting team. Tavernier was in the Top 10 for both Key Passes and Tackles Won. He was ranked 3rd for passes in the final third. He's expected goals and assists combined for this season was 15. I could see him getting 15-20 goal contributions in a full season under Wilder. He had 10 this season and has shown real signs of improvement. He does a lot more than what people realise for the team.  Tavernier was given corners because he was the only real left-footed option in the team. I do agree though that most of his deliveries were relatively poor considering he's our designated corner kick tacker they didn't look practiced.
    • Wouldn't call it interesting personally (i.e. not sure what there is to draw from it), think it just reinforces the club are happy they moved on from him. I can't remember the last time they did a season long goals montage so I could be wrong but it feels like this alone is a little out of the ordinary and perhaps only put together because Wilder is at the helm. I think the club is just continuing to want to push Wilder and positivity around him, that's how they approached the Season Card campaign too. It's not necessarily wanting to reflect on the season just gone as a whole but more to give an idea of what's to come.
    • I don't think corner taking ability is really something that pushes someone over that £10m threshold. He can be both one of our better corner takers, and still not be a particularly good corner taker, but that really feels like grasping at straws for something to still criticise him with. 
    • For what it’s worth with Tav, I genuinely think he would flourish as a left wing back, and simplified his game.  Tav travels well with the ball, is energetic and I can’t fault his work ethic at all. He always puts a shift in. But I just think he could use it so much better than he is currently doing from watching him this season. I still think he has some work to do in the final third, which ironically was where we struggled most to break teams down. I just don’t think he’s there yet and I don’t think he does a job which an additional player in midfielder couldn’t do (he’s replaceable).   For a player who takes corners, you’d expect better delivery on a more consistent basis for him to be worth 10m + which some are quoting on various platforms.    I realise that Tav is very polarised on the opinion poll. Like I say, I don’t hate him and think he’s ‘bad’, he’s just not consistent enough yet to be deemed as integral to how we play in midfield in my view  
    • Maybe if he was Slovenian and not from our academy he'd be the best thing since sliced bread 🤷
