Welcome to the new and improved TLW!

 

Some of you may experience issues logging in and will get an 'incorrect password' error. Don't worry, you haven't typed it in wrong and your password hasn't been changed. You will need to reset it though in order to log in. Click the reset password link and you will receive an email with your new temporary password. Once logged in, you need to choose a new password (or restore to your old one) otherwise you will be locked out again.

 

If you have an out of date email address linked to your account, then you won't receive the new password. If that's the case then you'll need to email me (dave @liverpoolway.co.uk) or send me a tweet @theliverpoolway and I'll update your password manually. 

 

Any other problems or questions just let me know.

 

Thanks

Dave

Brilliant movie. The scene where he walks into their meeting , drinks a beer and just abuses them is excellent.

One of my all time favourite ever scenes. The sort of scene where you wish if you were in a bar with such a racist nasty bastard you'd do the same to him.

Unfortunately Michael Rooker looks such a mean cunt it wouldn't be me doing it to him

Never seen this. Will watch it this week at some point.

Have a Hackman binge fest and watch French Connections 1 and 2,The Appointment and any others he's in. One of my favourite actors.

Fantastic film. Seen it countless times and never tire of it.

 

The perfect example of a story driven movie.

Terrible film, but it has Hackman and Sharon Stones jubblies when they were at the top of their game (the jubblies, not Hackman).

Just show us that clip and we'll avoid the rest.

I watched this earlier. 

 

It's a great representation of how horrendous racism was in that era, the film encapsulates this very powerfully. This felt like a 'proper' film which is rarely the case these days (albeit a few such as Hell or Highwater and 3 Billboards). 

 

Hackman was great, he has that charisma that only the elite actors possess, Dafoe was also very good despite me never being a fan of his (Probably because he looks like Gollum crossed with a bag head).

 

I'll definitely check out Hackman's other stuff.

Agree that he's great in this. No one does evil quite like Hackman.

Great scene, this is quality as well.

Hackman shared a flat with Bobby Duvall (and Dustin Hoffman who i’d forgotten) when they were starting out.

Fucking hell, the arguments over whose turn it was to put the bins out would have been oscar worthy.
