  1. 'The Stranger' a possibly lesbian girl who looks like a sexy troll runs around all sneaky in a baseball cap, revealing family secrets to people and sometimes blackmailing them. Setting is upper middleclass southern England - lots of strained facial expressions and pent up frustration. Some of the situations seemed a little far fetched and a very low budget car chase scene which will bring a smile to the face of American viewers (limeys can't do car chases) the same goes for an on foot chase scene that went on for way too long. All in all good though. Morishly suspenseful in that British thriller way and short enough in length so as not too drag on too much. Perfect for a Saturday down with the flu.
  2. Camping out in nature and having a bonfire is Grandfather Law. I think it's Sweden and/or Norway that do it right by being cool with camps as long as it's a couple hundred meters or so from a road. Nice to see a country that puts some trust in its citizens. Elsewhere it's a shame a few gotta ruin it for the rest.
  3. No doubt it is, but that number has not suddenly skyrocketed to where it is now, actually had been floating around the 1000 mark for the last few years at least. I don't think it's unrealistic to surmise that the coronavirus situation and the general worldwide malaise and confusion caused by Trump's escalating madness have had a large impact on the scale and spread of these riots.
  4. Yeah, I know what you mean. I can't help but wonder to what degree Trump/corona frustration etc. is fuelling the fire of these protests.
  5. Good explanation! I still hope they come up with a better slogan though. I know folks of all colours n' creeds are coming together on this, but 'Black Lives Matter' is pretty condescending no? Like that should be a given, and those who for whatever backward reasons disagree won't change their minds just like that. These fascist pigs and their supporters need all the pummeling they can get.
  6. Is police brutality really so widespread? I mean I know it's a thing and all but the sheer size and amount of violence of the protests seems somehow disproportionate and counterproductive. Has it turned into a kind of general protest against whatever, for everyone and their mothers to partake in to vent various frustrations?
  7. Ortegre donde esta las tunez nuevas, por favor yo
  8. Just watched Wild Tales and it was ace! My favourite was the city slicker vs. redneck one, but all the stories were good.
  9. being out and about in built up areas there's always an air of annoyance about, especially in traffic, someone else is in your way or vice versa not to mention the lumbering mass of uselessness that is buses. All doing our bit to diminish each other's view on humanity right ?
  10. I feel you, man. Seems like the same papers are being written by good folks from each successive generation who go the academic route, but, altruistic as they are, nothing much ever seems to come of it. It's totally frustrating to witness. Same seems to go for people going into politics with the best intentions of bringing change, but end up getting swallowed but that something or other, system? i dunno. Do we have the balls to initiate real upheaval of thangs, or we still just comfortable enough to endure?
  11. The incidental music in National Geographic, BBC nature and wildlife documentaries makes it feel dumbed down and cartoony, so annoying and unnecessary.
  12. Advantages of Travelling by Train. Enjoyed this. Imaginative, weird and interesting story telling. I found the vulgarity/dark bits were nicely balanced out by the overall slapstick feel that seemed to run as a buffering undercurrent throughout. This guy should be an interesting director to follow. Salo's much worse imo due to its realism and overall nasty/depressing feel.
  13. November was a good one! But yes, maybe wait with watchin till cosy autumn days. Don't let sunshine blanch out those crisp, gorgeous visuals!
  14. g 1 e 1 is kinda boc'ish tho
