FILMS FILMS FILMS
Well as we are all in lockdown and likely to be tasered for talking to a tree anywhere in the world -- let's get all of you into a chat about films. Or monty python or similar. Hard to start but at least it might help the feelings of monotonous hours and cabin fever.

My best film is "The Life of Brian " - I have several stories associated with it cos I was at a private Christian boarding school. The shitiest place on earth it was but at least there were girls there too. I don't mind any jokes or innuendo- just keep them coming. Even stoned thoughts....... I was apparently a "Blasphemer" and god theres plenty more.
So just write any shit you want to.

'A Place Beyond the Pines'

'Out of the Furnace'

"Prisoners'

"Wind River'

Really gritty American dramas. I can't get enough of these kind of films, something Hollywood does really well.

Cheers. BB

Wind River is such an under-rated film. It's tense and and worth the payoff....won't say much more, however if you liked The Unforgiven, you should like this.

Actually I've just also watched "The Good the Bad and the ugly ", in a quest to watch something funny. It's not always funny I guess but I love the spaghetti westerns so I'm watching all of the ones I can find. Clint Eastwood is a fine actor. The music in these films is fantastic
I just love them.

Casey Afflek is brilliant in it too, as is Woody Harleson. Just a great all round movie and yes, very underrated.

I love The Other Guys!

Mark Whalberg having a go at Will Ferrell is so bloody funny!

They should do another film together.

We watched Life of Brian the other day, first time in a while, & it's still a cracker! Very British, as you note; very sarcastic but not throwaway. EasyMe33 suggested Oldboy, which is a good movie but maybe not while stuck in isolation! I could waffle for ages about movies cos I love them but I'll throw in Twin Peaks the Return, if you can get it. That is a Mindbender & long enough to keep you both engaged physically and mentally, no matter how long this Covid thing lasts!!! Good luck to you all! ;-)

'Withnail and I' does it for me every time. I think when i first watched it, seeing these 2 guys (for example) drinking lighter fluid and offending country folk in the local tea rooms. Was so Simple really but executed so well. And so british! Twin Town is another favourite after I've had some strong smoke. T

I watched it for the first time ever during lockdown. Lived it. Lived the ending too. 'Withnail and I that is. I saw a lot of comedy and heard the simple minds classic again or rather watched live videos of it - :Dont you forget about me" .

Glad you liked it.

I've heard of that film but never watched it. Is it a comedy?

I have to admit to watching the "Carry on " films too. I've been looking for more and more tv and film stuff to watch and I've just watched " carry on camping" and the one about hospitals -- carry on matron I think it was called, but my head gets boggled with staying at home. (With a ton of chocolate!!), all the time. Mind fog I think it's called. It took me a while this morning to realise it is in fact Monday.
But yeah please share your stories about staying in and watching films / tv / getting mashed etc.
