    Your Top 5 Favourite Crime Films of All Time

    Agree it’s good. The Town is several notches higher though, for me. I really like Affleck. He’s very talented as both an actor and a director. Not a bad writer, either, come to think of it with that statue to show for it. His career still feels a little underwhelming though, which is weird.

    Your Top 5 Favourite Crime Films of All Time

    No idea why, but the first time I watched I was underwhelmed. It’s really good though, as my approximately five rewatches attest.

    Your Top 5 Favourite Crime Films of All Time

    I’m not great at lists or rankings, but here’s six heist movies I love, in order of memory: 1. Heat 2. The Town 3. Inside Man 4. Den of Thieves 5. The Thomas Crown Affair (newer version) 6. Ocean’s 11 (Clooney version)

    The GF book thread

    This was great. Went straight onto Book 2, Grass For His Pillow. Apparently it’s not a trilogy though as there are five books.
  5. We never properly dealt with the stadium issue either. We should have had full, frank dialogue with residents on terms favourable to them and had a stadium comparable in size to OT.
  6. The Mancs aren’t cheats. They’re just two decades further down the commercial maximisation path than we are. The rest though…
  7. Are you thinking of a different Dave?

    Whats your current aftershave

    Bought some Malin+Goetz - Cannabis in London last month. Smells great. Also have L’Eau d’Issey, 212 by Carolina Herrera, three different Aqua Di Parma ones (Colonia, Colonia Intensa and a blue one - can’t remember what it’s called). Got a few others too but I’ll be fucked if I can remember what they are right now.

    Rate the last film you watched...

    Shang-Chi & The Legend Of The Ten Rings - 7.5/10. Great martial arts, loads of new characters and lots of tantalising clues for where the MCU goes next. A Quiet Place Part II - 8/10. Taut, tense, pacy film making. It includes one of the best extended sequences of cross cutting I’ve seen, too. A cracking film.
  10. Saw Shang Chi and it’s a great origin story. Loads of boss martial arts. Think a couple of the minor characters were undercooked, but I really enjoyed it and the mid and end credit scenes were really good (especially the mid).
  11. They’ve said it’s canon and confirmed that Captain Carter at least will appear in the flesh at some point in the future.
  12. Agree on the animation style. I wasn’t fussed with the episode itself though. Off to see Shang Chi at the IMAX in town this morning. I’ll report back later.

    The GF book thread

    One more point on Billy Summers (and his other recent stuff too, actually): I think King might’ve finally cracked his mental block over endings.

    The GF book thread

    I’ve now started Across The Nightingale Floor by Lian Hearn which is the first of a trilogy set in a fantasy version of Japan about a child who becomes an assassin because of his unusual skills. It’s instantly engaging just one chapter in and I have very high hopes for it.
