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

    • The positivity flows strong in you but for me its a done deal, there is nt fight and I feel most of the teams we are playing their youth team would beat us. Its all over for this season. 
    • I meant a big fan of Leo as a person, but not his coaching abilities. It was all too cliche. I stand by my opinion on Big Sam, cannot fault the guy as a manager and relegation specialist up to mid table. 
    • Oh I am sure that we will pick up some points Joe but I am not hoping on points reductions to keep us in this league. And hope is like praying it will be either yes or no and we can't afford to wait and see. Our last four results show that we have 3 points, if the same applies to the next four then last game of the season will not matter
    • There will be plenty of time to resign yourself to relegation if it happens Alan. For now hang on to hope as it’s all we have going for us UTB 
    • And that could be part and parcel of the problem, we do not need proper lads who like to clown around. The comaradere that we thought Leo would bring and bond the club together has not worked has it? Only my own thoughts and I respect others opinions about Leo
