The same here- ended up eating less meat just because I started eating more veg :) Not a black/white path though as there are A LOT of poor quality "vegan"-labelled products with tonnes of salt and things that are much worse than meat.
If you are at all interested in hip hop, check out the BBC Four series "Hip Hop - The Songs That Shook America". I only saw one episode so far, but there are some amazing interviews, old footage and stories.
Easily the best documentary mini series I've seen in years. And I watch a lot of them. Fascinating if you're interested in the cannabis business, and murder....and weird isolated communities, and loads more.
Just incredible. Seen it 3 times and might watch it again.
Tiger King on Netflix is also pretty good although didn't need to be as long as it was. Seemed to be dragged out over too many episodes.
Yes, (Murder Mountain) I need to watch that again. Started casually watching that and then couldn't believe what I was watching. Tiger King is fun to watch, but Murder Mountain should just as much credit or hype.

Can anyone remember this gem of a film from 1999. I found it in my attic and it is still a masterpiece after all these years. Anyone who is nostalgic about the nineties, get it watched now! I swear, you will not be disappointed.
I also saw this first on the big screen at Glastonbury, chewing my face off. Decided I wanted a cup of tea half way for some reason.. Thought someone had moved the bushes in front of me so I began to climb through it. The bushes hadn't moved.. I had crawled down the middle aisle in front of everyone, walked along the screen and preceded to climb through undergrowth. Luckily some kind people came and pulled me out of the bush and explained to me what the fuck was going on and directed me to the nearby tea tent. Memory a bit patchy but I think I was having fun. I miss the 90's sometimes.
Great film, special for me cos i lived with director for 4 years and he wrote it during that period. So its my early 20s on film pretty much. Nice one bruvva is an evolution of how we used to scream down the phone at each other, (and still do) with names instead of bruvva.
It is superb and just represents his zest for life and fun and sillyness and funny situations. Under table snorting scene just one example of the talent in the cinematography.
If you liked this, i would urge anyone to check out his largely unknown second film "i know you know". A different affair about him and his dad and mum, but stunning in different ways. Also his older college stuff, party politics, life in the bus lane. On YT somewhere i think.
The sequel to HT is confirmed btw in case you didn't know.
Wow, that is amazing. He captured a perfect picture of life and it is totally relatable. The whole film was so well done and the cast was just spot on. You will have to tell him how amazing he is. I was 19/20 when it came out and that was a typical weekend. It just gives you the warm and fuzzies. I would be totally buzzin’ if there was a sequel. I will have to do some digging and see if I can find his other stuff. Thank you.
Nah Eastenders is rubbish, but Danny Dyer was funny in Human Traffic. Note he wasnt in Taxi Driver, he is just talking about the movie Taxi Driver to a taxi driver. Talking about torturing Peter Andre... I will link it
So true. I was definitely moff lol. I look back now amazed that I'm alive and heathy. Wouldnt dare get mashed now but thought nothing of dropping a few a back then. Was just part of going out in those days eh. Wouldn't change it for a thing though. Best days/nights of my life. Helter skelter, dreamscape, hysteria. Then later God's kitchen, progress, passion. I'd give anything to go back in time and do it all again. :)
You found reality then lol! I think if I dropped a pill now, I would die! I will stick to the green! I live in Scotland so the rave scene here was epic in the 90s. I wouldn’t change it for the world. There were no fights, everyone loved everyone, no one got offended and it was safe! I feel bad for the young ones now. They won’t get the experiences we had. The music was on another level too.
Looking for films that are to do with some kind of apocalypse. E.g. zombies, viruses, nuclear, environmental. Can be based during or after the apocalyptic event. Please tell me your favourites or ones you plan to watch
Some of my favourites: children of men, 28 days/weeks later, Dawn of the dead (2004), I am legend, 2012 and war of the world's (2005)
Children of Men: that is my fav film ever, I remmeber when I first watched it I was so moved I was in tears. Usually love movies but never get emotional, Children of Men however got me. "Strawberry Cough". 28 Days Later, one of Danny Boyles movies. Other good movies: Train to Busan, The Road, Cloverfield, 10 Cloverfield Lane, Shaun of The Dead, Sunshine (about a space crew in the future trying to stop an impending apocalypse as the sun is dying), Independence Day. That's what I can think of so far, but amazing shout on Children of Men, a lot of people I know have never seen Children of Men, it's a very underrated film.
You should check out 'Threads' a UK TV movie from the mid 80's. The effects are wonky by todays standards but it's still chilling as hell. Fail Safe and Forbin: The Colossus Project are also still scary. Children of Men is my favourite film of all time. A flawless masterpiece with great characters and so plausible.
I have seen apocalypse now, didn't think of that when I wrote the post. I guess it's not a proper apocalypse (global/taking humanity to near extinction - does tick the societal collapse box) but the name certainly fits and it is a brilliant film.
Apocalypse now is one of my favourite films. Have you seen the redux version. It’s a directors cut and is so worth it. It is loosely based on the book Heart of darkness by Joseph Conrad which is a good read if you enjoy the film. Brando is the man. A hell of a lot of his part is improvised. Genius
I suggested it fits as the Vietnam War caused the collapse of Vietnamese society & economy, not to mention the USAs use of the defoliant Agent Orange, napalm and all the rest. As far as all those agrarian villagers were concerned it was an "extinction event", their world had gone. 8(
This is one of my most favourite cartoons from my childhood.
AWESOME theme tune. Awesome corny character names. Awesome explanation in the intro. I don’t even remember the actual episodes; it doesn’t matter. It’s an awesome concept (I reckon that the modern day Marvel IronMan ripped on it a little, maybe?).
Obviously I don’t want to revisit and watch an episode, I rather the rose-tinted memories.
I was a bit weary about the premise, basically a crypto currency startup and how the partners get wrapped up in all kinds of organised crime and general trouble, but with some really good performances (not least by Martin Freeman who plays a crooked FBI agent) it's actually turning out to be quite good.
It's a little bit slow, but that's pretty common with most series these days.
It's no Sopranos, but I'd give it a solid 7.5/10 so far.
i watched the 1st one and was a little bummed so i havent had the gumption for the next one. special effects were shit but im gonna give it another go the story is rarely good in a 1st episode so no comment there
Defo, the creator esmail found bigger projects and malek won the oscar during seasons 2 and 3 but they came back as champions to finish it off on their own terms in 4. Just skip to 4 if you loved season 1. youll love it.
good luck getting through, your mum still keeps calling me. as for what i'm sucking on here i guess you're not too familiar with this subject: mrs scott's tits. yes you've been away a long time and they've got a few parsecs on them but believe me sailor they still get the job done.
