    Tory Cabinet Thread

    Yeah absolutely and the same applies to nearly anyone working for Novara Media. Backslappers who indulge in 6th form politics and thought experiments.

    As always, no wonder the Tories hold power so easily, they don't have to worry about dismantling Labour as they can do it themselves.

    The Many Saints of Newark

    Fuck it, can't work out how to do spoilers because I'm old. SPOILERS BELOW Really enjoyed it as a Sopranos fan but there's no real plot or drama to the 2 hours. It's like dropping in to see what's happening and then leaving. Vera Farmiga is terrific as Livia, like does a real authentic portrait of what she'd be like as a younger woman but we don't see a lot of her and we really see next to nothing of Johnny. There's loads of callbacks to things that are mentioned in the show that we see occur for real and there's a redo of the scene where all the dads get arrested at the theme park. Michael Gandolfini did well as Tony because he is not that good an actor. Corey Stoll is great as Uncle Junior, Ray Liotta was there and the race element seemed to get no real resolution but then plots did that in the show a lot. Dickie himself wasn't very complex, just seemed an angry prick. So it was good, I'd watch it again straight away but it just seemed to lack a point other than seeing the characters from a different perspective. More to add but without tags I'll leave it for now. Oh and the end is like the end of a franchise movie like James Bond. I kinda dug it but it also seemed a bit lame. SPOILER END

    I don't know how to do spoiler tags. Anyone help me out and I'll put stuff in spoilers.

    Seen it. Just to say that Vera Farmiga is excellent as Livia as a non-spoiler.

    Energy Prices

    Some of the prices people are paying on here and at work makes me feel like I've got something wrong and I'm not paying enough.

    Energy Prices

    What am I doing wrong here? I pay £32 for gas and £45 for electricity each month with SSE. I haven't changed suppliers in a decade.

    'Indiana Jones' plot details revealed!

    TL;DR I won't have it.

    'Indiana Jones' plot details revealed!

    I just can't have Crystal Skull's haphazard plotting that's often pointless and goes nowhere. Just off the top of my head there's:- The character of Mac - pointless adds nothing to the film or plot Mac's switching allegiances - Takes up needless time and makes Indy look gullible and stupid that he keeps falling for it. The graveyard fight - Who are the attackers? Why are they like that? Why did they pick the worst line of delivery for Ford's "part time" line when a better one was in the trailer. Going to the prison to look for Ox - Water-treading and full of exposition that adds nothing The sand pit - Temple of Doom's liferaft/parachute stretches credibility but a snake as a rope? The natives in the hidden city - They burst out of the walls, chase Indy for a few seconds and then they're all killed off-screen. Fuck me. The spaces between spaces - Fuck me. You can't have aliens in a world where there are vengeful gods of Christianity and Hindu so let's say they're interdimensional instead. Temple of Doom is coherent apart from the banquet scene which is racist, stupid and treads all over the exposition of who the Thugee actually are.

    'Indiana Jones' plot details revealed!

    No way is Crystal Skull better than Temple of Doom. ToD is problematic by today's standards and no Indy film is a patch on Raiders, one of the greatest movies ever made, but Crystal Skull has uneven plotting, dead ends, weird line deliveries and terrible CGI. Temple of Doom is better just for the bridge scene alone. It's the sort of nonsense when people revise that the Star Wars prequels were actually good. They aren't by any marker of film making but at least Revenge of the Sith is entertaining. As for Indy 5, Harrison Ford should've been making them in the '90s instead of Regarding Henry and its ilk. It's too late now but when it comes to Indiana Jones I compartmentalise. It's Raiders of the Lost Ark as a standalone and then there's others which are variations on a theme (horror, comedy, family) but only Raiders is, to borrow a phrase, the one true Ark.

    Have a rant thread

    There's a good point here. Putting off learning isn't going to help financially, it's only ever going to get more expensive to learn to drive.

    Have a rant thread

    Having grown up on the mean streets of the Welsh Valleys learning to drive was a must as public transport is poor, especially trains, and you couldn't even get down to Swansea/the Gower without having to go 20 miles the other way first. So I kind of understand why people in large cities like London don't learn to drive because TFL is pretty comprehensive. The only thing I've never quite got is the 17-19 year olds who never learn to drive, irrespective of where they live. It's your first real grasp of freedom and I couldn't wait to get my own car and do what I wanted when I wanted. I have people who work for me in their 30s and above who can't drive and think how shit life is for them as East Midlands public transport is dogshit (Nottingham's tram system and the 90 min train ride to London St Pancras excepted).
