No. No you weren’t but if it makes you feel better then we can pretend you were?
Right, so what did you find funny about it? That's all I wanted to know.
His Rolex Daytona auctioned for a world record $13m last year.
Just f*ck off mate.
What's so hard?
Your penis, every time you’re replying to me. Now go away you freak.
So I have eclectic tastes? (And opinions).
Can't comment on your own preferences because of course you haven't posted them.
Best decade overall was probably the 90's for me.
Favourite by decade.
50's - 12 Angry Men
60's - For a Few Dollars More
70's - One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest
80's - The Breakfast Club
90's - Pulp Fiction
00's - The Lord of the Rings trilogy. If I can only choose one then I pick The Fellowship of the Ring
10's - The Intouchables or Whiplash.
50's - Seven Samurai
60's - Cool Hand Luke
70's - The Godfather I & II (honourable mention to The Sting mainly for the ending)
80's - The Thing (Raiders of the Lost Ark is close to perfect though)
90's - Goodfellas
00's - Gladiator
10's - The Fighter (or True Grit)
Yeah we know which scene you like - that little cock-tease washing her car, eh!
' odd ball was one of my nicknames at school'
theme tune was ace
easy answer- the 80s (the decade I was born in). some classic in the late 70s and early 90s but the 80s is it for me
I prefer older movies anyway but I couldn't hazard an opinion on the best decade for movies.
Some of my faves:
30's - Fury
40's - The Killers (hence my username)
50's - Separate Tables
60's - The Apartment
70's - Jaws
80's - Raiders of the Lost Ark
90's - L.A. Confidential.
I agree massively, it's hugely unrealistic and the plot is stupid because of it. It's not even unrealistic in a fun way either, it's just dumb.
I think one thing we're all in agreement with. Cinema has declined massively since the turn of the century.
For me film, like society in general, peaked in the 90s.
In 1995 the nominees for best picture at the Oscars included Forrest Gump (winner), Pulp Fiction and The Shawshank Redemption. You're lucky to get a film in that echelon within four years now. Too much focus on franchises and superhero shite. Twelve superhero films were released to the cinema in 2018, that's one every month.
I despise all these shitty super hero movies.
They're the kind of thing that are ok bringing one out every few years like Superman, Batman did...but now its just ridiculous. You throw Kodi on and look for a recent film to watch and its lists of super hero crap and not much else.
Two or three a year, big budgets and memorable films. I don't get how people differentiate between them when there's one a month. Even the buddy cop craze and the teen dystopias didn't go this mental. It's having an impact on cinema. I used to go the cinema all the time, one of my favourite things to do. I feel like I'm scraping ther barrel to find an excuse to go these days, and I'm often disappointed.
Yep, over the last few years I've mainly ditched Hollywood films for Indie or World Cinema, as they make the most interesting stuff now. I'd rather watch some Iranian domestic drama, than thon CGI-laden Marvel drivel.
The problem is the cinema. I want to go but there isn't enough on for me to do so. I sunk so low I gave that new Predator a shot, which I really regret. Another problem is certain cinemas won't bother showing certain films. The 2015 Macbeth wasn't shown in cinemas where I live and I wanted to see it.
Great point on MacBeth. My mum did manage to see it on the big screen in Dundee as she loves Fassbender, but not enough more interesting stuff is on at the big chains. In Dundee we have the DCA as well which shows a lot more independent cinema which is great; but the big chains should put on more NT Live! or RSC stuff more regularly as there is demand for that. Outside of that I rarely go to the cinema now, the last two films I saw were Bladerunner 2049 and The Last Jedi; I even missed out watching Solo - and I never do that for Star Wars - as it felt like a money-grabber pure and simple (still have to see it actually). On top of that, cinema's are so expensive now; apparently there is a new one opening in London where its £40 a ticket! Then your about a tenner just for bloody popcorn! No thanks.
