    that man now is finding out how to wash toilet etc. and is apparently catching up on the world cups he has missed.
    Quite a story
    Appalling prison sentence.

    He was there from 18. He is now 58.
    I think the master is now dead but his son is involved.
    Wonder who he supports regarding world cups.

    Just watched "Greed" with Alan Partridge.
    Superb film, very illuminating.

    The Tinder swindler.
    Bloody hell he's some boy, and still filling his boots.
    Amazing what you can get away with if you're confident enough.

    I'd probably like it if they made more pre-mobile phones and internet films and series, a lot of things were better pre mobile phones and internet

    Literally everything was better before smart phones, they've ruined so many things. People say its better for things like streaming etc but for me personally I rarely watch movies now whereas when I was in my teens and into early 30s I'd watch them regularly.
    I had hundreds of VHS and Dvd's of classic movies. I used to love going to places like HMV or virgin megastore and taking my time to pick some movies. You'd spend uninterrupted time watching them, taking time to watch everything in the movie,characters,script,scenes etc. No distractions. All part of the movie experience. Streaming doesn't do that for me now, there's too much choice if that makes sense?

    Peter Rabbit! Hilarious!
    Watched it with my wife!
    I do not think I can ever watch a war film again.
    I tried Kelly's heros shortly after and though attemptingly comical, for me the world has changed now.
    Kelly's heros? No!
    Peter Rabbit? Yes!

    Million Dollar Baby - gritty story and a movie masterpiece.

    Some great deep thoughts explored through simple messages via the heroic tragedy.

    Emotionally, a scatter-bomb, feelings obliterated in all directions.

    Seen it before, loved it, rate it, even got cut watching it.
    Reminds me of watching into the west, as a kid.

    10/10

    My kids thought it was amazing, Im.in a small minority I know.
    I just don't see it up there with the best MCU movies. I've felt for a while that there's too much quantity over quality with the MCU movies now.
    Never got on my radar, that's an animated film/series, right ? Think they'd have to had an actual movie to get in on the act.

    Spider Gwen the lack of invention is astounding. As said it had too much hollywood politics in it for my liking.

    I'd put lego batman up against most of the big budget marvel/superhero genre. A great laugh 😃 All good movies start in black...
