Why are we lucky he stayed here? He was a fucking recluse, it didn't matter where he lived.

 

Coz our industry was suffering and he brought a lot of work to our studios. From Lolita onwards England doubled for most of the locations in his films.

Overrated and overacted pile of poop.

I knew this would be a neg-magnet.

 

Even the much-lauded quotes are just adolescent machismo - every bit as cringeworthy as Pacino shouting "Say hello to my little friend." It's OK to be impressed by this stuff when you're 13, but then you grow up a bit and realise that it's crap.

 

Also, it's another entry in that genre of films that portrays Americans as in some way the victims in Vietnam. Bollocks to that. The world's most powerful nation went on a genocidal spree in a far corner of the Third World and got its arse handed to it. Good. I can no more have sympathy for the characters in this film than I can for the Nazis in Schindler's List. No amount of gurning and posturing is going to convince me to empathise with the characters in this film.

 

It's a waste of Kubrick's talent to compare with Eyes Wide Shut.

As much as i dont want to get start a political debate on this thread,i do believe there were American victims in that war.They shouldnt have been there but most of the troops were not given the choice to go or not and when they returned were treated like shit and given no help.

 

Nasty war that wasnt needed.

 

I like both but Apocalypse Now is a better film with a better soundtrack anway.

So much sixth-form angst and wrongness.

 

But pretty much to be expected on the GF, which is rife with it.

 

PS Eyes Wide Shut is fucking gash.

    • Was that Tory @Null and void its not safe' Deeney getting off the bus with no face mask 
    • I don't dispute they're running the business efficiently for the balance sheet. But they're made some pretty big PR mis-steps in doing so (for relatively small amounts of money) which they've had to roll back from, furlough and ticket prices spring to mind, but I'm sure there's been another couple of things I just can't quite think in my semi hungover state. They do this stuff because they don't give a fuck and want to get away with whatever they can. They do however see the value in not becoming Mike Ashley and completely alienating the fan base, so on occasion they've back tracked because of the bad PR.    As for they don't make money till they sell, well that's their business model and a perfectly legitimate one. I don't see there's any credit to be given for that, it's literally the path they choose to make money. They don't have to sell 100% either to recover their money, they could sell 10% today and have their original investment back.    And as for not putting in additional funds - actually I think they should have done that at the start. The bought a business in distress, I don't think it would have been unreasonable for them to put something in to turn around the fortunes. However, I'd have settled for them doing the 1 thing they promised when they walked through the door, which is to deliver a 60k stadium. I'm happy they've chosen not to leave anfield, but that doesn't mean the only real beneficiaries should be hospitality brigade. It's taken them 10 years to get half way to the 60k from where they were and now things are on pause again because of corona. Now that's feels ok if it didn't take us 10 years to just get some pictures of the Annie road. Even that tight cunt down at spurs has identified a location and built a brand new stadium in that time. There's just no excuse for it. It's not like we're talking about billions here, it's the transfer fee and not even the wages of a decent footballer. I might even be more forgiving if we bought players without selling, but they don't do that either. Increased capacity pays for itself. Not as quickly as fsg want in the case of the road end (17 years according to the club, but then we've gone nowhere with that stand in 10 years, we could be half way done by now), but it does pay for itself. I just don't think the lethargic approach is about anything other than they just don't want to do it. When they came in they promised to sort the stadium, to under promise and over deliver. It seems they made 1 promise and never delivered. I don't think it's unreasonable to have expected them to put in some investment to move the stadium forward in a more timely manner. And I don't moan about the stadium because of my own self interest. I have a season ticket and access to almost as much hospitality as I want. But I want the most reds possible to watch their team. That was the promise. 
    • I don’t use Facebook, mate. Admiral made some great kits.       
    • What do expect for nearly £20m? 
    • If you are going to spend the best part of 35ml on a playmaking midfielder why not try and force Lyon arm, they have no champions league football and will likely need to sell. Houssem Aouar is 21 and surely more in line with our policy on players
