I feel a Bank Holiday viewing of League of Gentlemen is called for..
An old-school, no-bullshit, boys-own action/adventure comic reminiscent of the 2000ads and Eagles and Warlords and Battles and other glorious black-and-white comics that were so, so cool in the 70's and 80's - Buy the hardback Christmas Annual!

So many good films that I've enjoyed, League of Gentleman, Great Escape and as director A Bridge too Far, to name a few, what a sad loss.
The Justice department has a good re-education programme-it's called five to ten in the cubes.

Here's a taster of that classic British Movie.

BRIDGE TOO FAR will be rewatched.  I always think it's one of those war films that gets the LIONS and DONKEYS tone just about right.
Be excellent to each other. And party on!

Aye, so very sad to hear of the passing of Sir Richard Attenborough. A national treasure - as is indeed his brother, David.

But, so many great acting roles (Personal fave? His genuinely creepy portrayal of John Christie in 10 Rillington Place) and so many great film that he directed. Again, a personal fave would be A Bridge too far, which was only recently rewatched.

RIP, Sir Dickie.

His performance in Rillington Place was a revelation but my favourite Attenborough role would have to be Pinkie in Brighton Rock. It's a great film but please stay well away from the awful remake from a few years ago.

Bill Kerr.
I must admit I didn't know he was still alive.

Ah maaan. Being a huge fan of Hancocks Half Hour I knew he was still going. The last of the main cast. He was a good age though.
Anyone not a fan of that show might still know him from 80s Aussie film, Razorback. Deffo worth a watch.

Sorry to hear about Bill Kerr. I've always loved Hancock' s Half Hour since I'd heard a comedy album when I was a kid. I remember listening to an interview with him a few years ago where he talked about how well he got on with the rest of the cast except Kenneth Williams, strangely enough.

This might not mean much to anyone here but I just found out Glenn Cornick, the original Jethro Tull bass player, has died. This fills me with sadness. I adore the early Tull years and the images in which Cornick was dressed like a mad hippy in my Dad's record collection used to fill me with wonder, he was the main reason I was captivated by them. For me, after the band unceremoniously dumped him, their music wasn't as good.

If you think you don't know him, then listen to this and you'll remember.
