Kingston / Rick - Could I make a suggestion to start a religious thread where this discussion can carry on without it diluting film chat?
Apologies Sandford. Ive said what I needed to. If Kingston wants to he can contact me privately.

No need to apologise mate. I’m not a forum nazi or anything it was merely a suggestion as it seems to be running on was all.

Just stumbled across this thread and had to add my penny's worth after seeing a reference to Early Doors.

I missed this wonderful comedy when it was first broadcast as I was living in Oz at the time.

A friend introduced me to it about 10 years ago and I thought it was bloody marvellous with some hilarious characters, not to mention their catch phrases such as Tommy "I'll stay on me own..."

I in turn introduced my brother in law to Early Doors who now says it's his favourite comedy of all time.

He traveled up from his home in Somerset to see the live show in Manchester which he described as one of the best nights of his life.

I learnt to love the Royle Family, despite not appreciating it when it first came out, as I was in my early 20s, so it was all about going out rather than watching TV, let alone watching people watch TV!

I think Early Doors pips RF for me though.

I was weighing up my 3 favourite comedy series and couldnt whittle it down, so had to go with my top 5 instead - see what you think...

Alan Partridge, The Office, Phoenix Nights, Early Doors, Peep Show.

Saxondale and Curb Your Enthusiasm almost made the cut, as did Royle Family.

Quite interesting that three of my top five are based in the North West, as are two of the three of my 'best of the rest'.

On to films...the last couple I really enjoyed at the cinema were Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri and 1917.

Really enjoyed '71 as someone else mentioned and rewatched some of my all time favourites over Christmas - Trainspotting, Withnail and I, Apocalypse Now, The Departed and OJ Made in America (on iPlayer), a series of documentary film, which won an Oscar.

All the President's Men (iPlayer) is definitely worth a watch if you've not seen it, as are Gran Torino, La Haine, The Boxer and Crazy Heart.


The Fighter, not The Boxer. Might help if I could get the title right 🤦🏻‍♂️

Incidentally, ‘The Boxer’ is also a very good film. 😊

The Fighter is an excellent film. I love the boxing film genre as a whole, Cinderella Man, Raging Bull, Journey man etc. I watched Mr Calzaghe on Prime recently and thoroughly enjoyed it, he's probably the best British boxer in my lifetime so it was good to relive his career as well as getting some context on his personal struggles during his rise.

Looking forward to the forthcoming Bruno vs Tyson documentary as well.

Watched The Dig twice as my wife  issued it the first time.

Going back to archaeological digs,  don’t they say absence of proof isn’t proof of absence?

That’s correct. Some seem to think though that absence of proof is proof of something because it hasn’t been disproved.

Going back to films. Just watched Waterloo for the umpteenth time. Loads of errors and holes in it, but a great film. Plummer and Steiger WERE Wellington and Bonaparte. The spectacle is incredible - real men and real horses by the thousand (made in 1970 by a Soviet director with the assistance of the Red Army who provided the extras). Captured my imagination 50 years ago and fed a lifelong fascination.

Tenet 9/10

In a twilight world of international espionage, an unnamed CIA operative, known as The Protagonist, is recruited by a mysterious organization called Tenet to participate in a global assignment that unfolds beyond real time. The mission: prevent Andrei Sator, a renegade Russian oligarch with precognition abilities, from starting World War III. The Protagonist will soon master the art of "time inversion" as a way of countering the threat that is to come.

Like Inception and memento rolled into one. Like those films I will be watching this again. It baffled me at times but it does all come together enough at the end.
