Off Topic / Re: The Progmuda Triangle

Postie come and gone and still no prog this week, which means it will be Thursday at the earliest that my sub prog arrives. That's a new record, and coming off the back of the Wednesday prog last week and the uptick in Monday/Tuesday progs it's getting a bit frustrating. No other regular mail is delayed so I can only assume there's a blip somewhere in the pipeline for the prog. Hopefully it gets resolved soon...

Mine arrived Tuesday last week and then Wednesday this week.

People have been banned for that. In fact, I’m pretty sure there’s actually an official policy on it.

I have been reprimanded in regards to my comment.

I could not change the original post thus I apologised and re-phrased it.

I am willing to take a ban. Almost hoping for one in fact.

I could do without the aggro of putting up with the passive aggressive sh*t of that persons comments.

I thought this was a nice place.

Sorry to refer to you as that word.

That was uncalled for.

 I meant unpleasant vulva.

Instead of watching Scorcese's latest white boy crime-wank movie .


Like shooting fish in a barrel.

Jesus. Really. Is being a cunt a thing now on this forum?

Wow. I have to say that is one of the most brilliant summary of a film you have not watched.

Due to Link Prime's post, and the fact that today ended up being a free day for me, I watched it (damn, I'm so weak.)

Professor Bear you are so far wide of the mark it's almost impossible to be that wrong.

It is in fact a film about how crime can hurt those around you and does not glorify crime, be it 'white boy crime wank' or black boy crime wank or any racial stereo crime wank at all.

I suggest you see it first then decide about the film. And it is a film. It's cinema at it's peak.

As Link Prime said, it's up there as one of the best films this year. I can't decide which I prefer. OUTIH is great fun and brilliantly made but The Irishman has an emotional heart that will resonate for a long time. Made by an auteur.

If that's 'white boy crime-wank' then bring it on. I hope more gets made.

Inception. How can a film so chock-full of good actors, nice effects and cool ideas be such a boring old load of arse?

I adore Inception. Fantastic film with action and a heart.

Little Monsters (Sky)
This was great fun. A fairly lightweight addition to Zombie cinema but enjoyable non the less. The bit at the end where the zombies play along to 'If you're happy and you know it' song is priceless. A decent film

Le Mans '66. I'm no petrolhead (can't even drive a car) but this was great. Two and a half hours flew by with great performances from Jason Bourne and Batman. Especially by Batman. The sound especially demands that the movie be watched in a cinema. Really enjoyed it.

We enjoyed the first season of The Good Place but soon tired of the format after that.

I finally got around to seeing Joker

Wow! This is a cinematic masterpiece. I truly think it is. Just so much to absorb from the film on what it says about society, government, the class system, etc, etc plus it's set in a very realistic 'comic book' film.

Arthur's transformation through the film is utterly stunning.

And about that controversial music cue...I think that is very deliberate too. It would be far too jarring for it not to be. Everything other single piece of music was chosen very specifically. I was just glad they (deliberately) did not use enough of it so they would have to pay any royalties.

A stunning piece of cinema that was almost perfect in every single way.

I watched the first three Mindhunters and loved it. But it's not the sort of thing to watch just before going to bed. Which is the only time I get to watch stuff.

I watched 6 episodes today (slow, wet, dank day (weatherwise)) and I have to say I need something light and fluffy tonight to lift my spirits. This stuff is pretty dark.
