Anyone watched "The Edge" on amazon prime? It's about England Cricket's rise from 7th in the test rankings to 1st, but focuses heavily on the mental aspect of that.

I enjoyed it. I liked the KP documentary on Sky as well I think Hussein interviewed him really well in not shying away from asking the tougher questions. It would have been interesting to see Prior, Flower, Anderson and Broad involved in it though.

Just finished Season one of Mindhunter on Netflix. Season 2 already available.  Seems a good show giving early insight into the FBI's BAU.

Season 1 is awesome, while season 2 is slow and not very informative about famous serial killers or their psycology... It's more based around one specific case... No more spoilers, sorry...  Season 2 is worth a watch, but I find season 1 better. Here's hoping season 3 will be a killer!

Everyone has to see the Joker Joaquin Phoenix was phenomenal in it.

I love how you can see the transformation in his performance, he really emotes the changes in the character. That scene where hes walking out of the subway station after "the incident" (wont spoil it) is one of the most simple, powerful shots I think I've ever seen when put into context of what we had already seen up until that point, where hes suddenly just exuding cool and is finally comfortable in his own skin. I got *** goosebumps.

A great character profile I thought, been recommending it since I left the cinema

The Sinner on Netflix is really really good. Deep, eerie and with great actors and actresses!

I'd give it 8/10 on the very critcal scale ?

Good thread

I enjoy any films, box sets regarding WW2

The last WW2 film I see recently, which I've seen numerous times is The Pianist, great film & sad, in itself, Adrian Brody is the main actor in a Jewish family of 5 living in Poland during the German occupation 

It's presently on Netflix & I will no doubt watch it again soon

The last box set I seen & enjoyed emenselly was Peaky Blinders, excellent, before that Band of brothers, awesome

I can't watch films, or box sets that's got no chance of having any sort of reality in it

Does anyone else hear a certain piece of music and just tear up? This sounds ridiculous but there's a Ford Focus advert on at the moment with a brief classical sounding piece in it. Turns out it's by the utterly fantastic British musical collective The Cinematic Orchestra, two pieces called "Arrival of The Birds" and "The Transformation" originally written for a Disney documentary about flamingos of all things!

Perhaps a different form of tearing up in response to music but this made me laugh my tits off when one of the streams had it on.

Great piece of music, but if anything it makes me feel chilled and tranquil, rather than tearing up.

 

To get the waterworks going requires something like this...

I was saddened to hear the news of the loss of Matt Chipchase from Young Rebel Set yesterday. He was a very talented local musician. 

 

 

Yes I was shocked to hear this. Such a good band and a nice guy by the sounds of it

    • Sorry but this is such a naive perspective, BD. There is literally no one on this planet who has the authority to say that this virus is not dangerous in circumstances that literally involves close contact with other human beings. Nobody knows of a way to absolutely 100% not transmit the virus other than to literally not be next to people when you have it. Generally speaking, you have a point, I get that we can't just hide away in our homes forever. But the idea that there are circumstances in which people can be in physical contact with each other as they used to be and still be 100% safe really undermines where you're going with this. There are varying rates of risk and we can't move forward until everyone acknowledges that.
    • My hope is relegated clubs/those aiming for promotion might see Britt as a cheaper alternative to the other prolific strikers in this league. Dont want to start a debate on whether Britt is prolific but hope fellow board members get point am trying to make? He is viewed as one of the more established leading forwards at this level given he virtually guarantees you double figures each season at this level (bar this one) I imagine any offer of approx £4m+ gets you Britt..
    • I reckon the championship restart be a week later but the fixture schedule is gonna be ridiculous!
    • Or maybe there won’t be one. We can’t keep everything under lockdown until the virus is completely gone or there is a 100% cure. Obviously money is a question because a lot of jobs depend on the football industry but the professional sport itself is a very safe environment for everyone that’s in it.  The governments around Europe are simply starting various businesses up that is deemed safe and professional football behind closed doors isn’t dangerous in any way. 
    • I suspect much of  the league is going to be in a similar position. We're quite lucky to have so many players running out of contract just as this economic crash is coming. I can see most of the league desperately trying to cut their wage bills.  Biggest downside is no one will be willing to spend money on Britt.
