Avatar occupies this strange place in sci-fi pop culture. Everyone's heard of it. Most have seen it. Damned if anyone actually give a shit about it though.

You also just have to look at Disneys back catalog being uploaded to Disney+. Before they started acquiring everything in existence, 90% of Disneys output was absolute dreck.

Never even heard of Dead Mans Shoes - is this a recent film?

Even if you've never seen the movie, you'll have seen clips or gifs around the internet. It's the one where Paddy Considine goes ape shit.

Thinking about it, there are loads of classic westerns I'd like to see. The trouble is, I get mixed up with what's what. I don't think I've ever seen High Noon, The Shootist, The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance. There are loads.

Definitely get around to seeing High Noon, it is, and no shit, an absolute masterpiece.

I'm very cautious about watching as many so called 'classic movies' as possible. No point rushing them, they're never out of print or off streaming services, hence why i've never seen Lawrence of Arabia, Trainspotting, Oliver!, or Dead Mans Shoes despite all being ingrained in internet and global pop culture. I'll get around to them eventually, along with a lot of movies already covered.

I have seen Robot Jox at least 16 times.  My conscience is clear.

Paddington is very delightful, just one of those wonderful genuinely feel good movies.

Three Films By Sammo Hung

If you like action flicks, this new BD set from Eureka is an absolute must - and the transfers are retina-meltingly gorgeous.

I really hope we get more of his 70s/80s/90s out on UK blu.

Yup, got that on order. Eastern Condors, Iron Fisted Monk AND Magnificent Butcher (aka the best unofficially Drunken Master sequel) makes this an absolute essential.

That being said, i've still not picked up the Once Upon a Time in China Trilogy, Project A Part 1 and Part 2, Meals on Wheels and Two John Woo Movies sets yet, Eureka have been doing gods own work!

Fist of the North Star has been on circulation for the last few days. Hey, it's that time of year, it's cold and I don't wanna go out at night so i'm binging some good old fashioned anime schlock.

Aye Space 1999 is a gem that really stands up to scrutiny all these years later.

So today has been pretty spugging bad for the folks of Manchester. Fortunately wasn't in the Arndale when the absolute drokk head went nuts but a friend was. Not a good time for anyone involved, just hoping the wounded all pull through.

US theatres ... displayed signs banning unaccompanied males from screenings.

This was, I believe, revealed as a hoax by some attention-seeking scrote.  Which rather supports the rest of your post.
