  1. The Hurt Locker yesterday......loved it. For me better than the likes of Jarhead, American Sniper, Black Hawk Down, Full Metal Jacket etc. Really tense stuff, every scene, especially the ambush in the desert and the final scene with the Iraqi in the main square. Great film. Then today, Midnight Express, still my favourite ever movie......incredible.

    Inside No. 9

    Watched it, ended up thoroughly confused.....albeit having got over the previous hurdle of turning off after 5 minutes ‘due to the technical issues’ lol. Watched it again......but still baffled by the plot. That is some plot line for sure.....so many twists.....my brain was knotted and my eyeballs rotating like Catherine Wheels. Makes trying to understand the movie Inception look like a walk in the park by comparison !

    Oh good Lord......the penny has now dropped Rizla ! How dumb am I ? Will watch it tonight and report back in !

    Ah it was all part of the plot Rizla ! Joking aside Reece is silent on Twitter and it’s all a bit odd as to what’s happening. Presume they will re-record it......but won’t risk doing it live next time around !
  5. I just watched The Shining today, first time for decades, and what a top film it is.....but more than that.....is Jack’s performance in the film one of if not his greatest ? Terrifying stuff (!) and Nicholson quite masterful. There is also obviously The Cuckoo’s Nest.....one of my top 5 all time favourite films.....but his performance in The Shining may just be his best ever ? Time to head to Wikipedia to remind myself of his stellar CV.

    Come on you Spurs!

    Meltdown at Spurs...still no fixed date for a return to WHL, 30,000 empty seats at Wembley on Monday night, no new signings in the summer (this will come back to haunt them in the latter part of the season), a top 4 finish looking increasingly unlikely, no silverware for over 10 years, Poch looking thoroughly disgruntled (Madrid beckons), and Eric Dier still in the first team ! Chaos !

    What on earth happened ? Disaster. Just tried to see if things rectified on iPlayer but not sure they have been. Hopefully we’ll get to see a re-run at some stage.

    Great heads up Rizla. Wonderful stuff and each episode always with a twist at the end. Pemberton & Shearsmith top writers in my opinion. Was lucky enough to see the recent L of G tour at Hammersmith last month.....absolutely superb comedy. Long may we be blessed with their brilliant writing.

    Tom Odell

    Off to Hammy Odeon tomorrow. Looking forward. Also noticed he seems to have slotted in a low key gig at a night club in Kingston on Thursday as his Brighton show that evening for some reason has been ‘rescheduled’.

    Since there is no Chelski thread

    I was at the Cup Final.....in the Man U end, well the posh bit above the lower tier......and the way Hazard totally left Jones for dead, literally murdered him....so that all the hapless Jones could do was take him down in the box.....it was an incredible moment. Make no mistake, Hazard is quite extraordinary. Apart from Zola I have never seen a footballer like it.....forget the team.....those two guys.....incredible. I guess he will leave at the end of the season so for now we should just enjoy his genius.

    Since there is no Chelski thread

    Really an incredible start to the season for CFC and all credit to the new man at the helm.....high tempo football with fundamentally the same squad as last season bar one or two. Absolutely huge game on Saturday.....on paper......though looking at both sides this could be a relatively easy 2 nil win for the blues. Hazard totally on fire and as I have been asking Chelsea fans I know some of whom go back to the 60s.....is he the greatest player you have ever seen in a blue shirt ? Many say “yes”.

    Not enough Broadway tapes.

    Where is Crystal Cat when we need him ?!

    The Manchester United thread

    There was another team in around 1994 which I still recall.....Schmeichel ; Irwin Bruce Pallister Parker ; Sharp Keane Ince Kanchelskis ; Cantona Hughes. Maybe a better back 4 and front 2 than the team of 98/99 ?

    The Official Aston Villa Thread

    This Dean Smith / JT (captain, leader, legend) combo is literally going to end in tears. The club have made a major schoolboy error. Can you honestly imagine JT remaining as a Number Two for any length of time before his Alpha male silverback gorilla persona can’t take it any more, and he starts manoeuvring for Smith’s job. Memories of South Africa 2010 when he caused all sorts of ruptions in the camp. Make no mistake it will kick off big time in the Villa changing room and training ground probably by Xmas.
