    frankly neither review is worth anyone's time.

    can you do me a favour?

    I think I'd rather people didn't post at all than do these rubbish one line can't-be-arsed versions.

    everyone does it at some point.

    i don't mean all the posts have to be shakespeare or by default 2 lines. I mean they can be 2 words as long as they are worth reading.

    please make an effort.

    everyone

    for the record an effort is thinking about what gets written


    thanks

    Oh, yes also watched 'Pay it Forward' over the weekend. Quite an old one, from 2000 and I remember seeing back then.

    In my humble opinion it is a great film, about one boy's attempt to make the world a better place for everyone. Just to simply pay a good deed forward to three other people, without asking for anything in return and tree of good deeds..

    Some here may like it....others may not. I do. Plus the ending is a killer for any softy.

    I prefer the Netflix user interface, but Lovefilm content is probably better.

    This may be my most misjudged post on this forum, ever, which is saying something, but here goes.

    I watched this last night

    FILM REVIEWS... and why not - Page 11 Sendimage.php?path=1289.6a1bb.jpg.cropped

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1727790/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1

    It's a film about the rise of the West Indies cricket team in the late 70's. It is one of those stories whereby if it was scripted as fiction you'd call it corny and unbelievable.

    In the space of 12 months they went from getting stuffed by the Aussies (and racially abused and treat like second class citizens) to beating England in England and setting off on a 15 year unbeaten test match streak. Now whether you like Cricket or not, no sporting team has ever equalled that.

    At the same time they were fighting racism and colonialism both abroad and at home.

    As someone who was very young at the time this documentary is set it's frightening to see the level of vitriol aimed at these guys for the colour of their skin. It looks like it was almost acceptable. The England cricket captain at the time, Tony Greig was actually quoted as saying he would 'make them grovel'. Him being a South African didn't help matters.

    The part of the story where they go back to Australia and take them apart, literally, is classic TV. Four men who could launch a cricket ball at you relentlessly at over 90mph is a very very scary thought.

    Ace film, even if you're not that into the sport. 10 'owzats!' out of 10 Smile

    I watched two fillums this weekend.

    The first was 'Hunger Games'. Teenage claptrap with more holes than my undercrackers. Stay well away.

    The second was 'Livid', a French ghost story.

    FILM REVIEWS... and why not - Page 11 51XGVfK0PoL._SL500_AA300_

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1727516/

    The plot is pretty weak (teens go to rob haunted house), it doesn't take much brainpower to figure out what is going on. But, there are some genuinely spooky scenes and the cinematography is really really good (don't watch in anything other than HD). Well worth a viewing. It's the type of film that will probably get a big Hollywood remake.

    I'd give it 7 rola colas out of 10 Smile

    I saw a brilliant French flick with the guy from La Haine in it. It was in the countryside and he may or may not have been the devil.

    I concur, great film. I can't believe it came out in '95, i thought it was later than that for some reason, must be years since i have seen it.
