    Lib Dems

    Swinson made climate change a central theme to her leadership campaign yet she has accepted donations from fracking companies. Where's the integrity?

    Rate the last film you watched...

    John Wick 3 Not as good as one and two, though the first 20 mins are amazing. The fights at the end became repetitive and the desert bit was just dumb. 7/10
  5. Most of those already mentioned. Robinson Crusoe and White Horses intros definitely nostalgia overload. Also (if not already mentioned) Paddington Marine Boy UFO Pipkins Pogles Wood Banana Splits Animal Magic Tomorrow People Any Looney Tunes cartoon Shaun the Sheep
  6. Firefly Buffy the Vampire Slayer Stargate The Expanse I Claudius Father Ted Fringe Black Adder The Bridge Elizabeth 1 (Helen Mirren TV drama)

    Danny Baker's..

    Isn't Baker being sacked for his lack of judgement? The BBC cannot be certain that this was an honest mistake so I can understand why they did what they did. Whatever reason Baker gives, he failed to see how inappropriate the image was. And isn't it a positive that lots of people were offended? Suggests to me that today more people have a better awareness of what might offend others. Does that make me a snowflake?
  12. I left the cinema thinking it was a 9 out of 10 - a great film. Have just watched Kevin Smith's review/recap of it and I'd now say it is a 10. Smith makes the point that we are unlikely to ever see such a cinematic event again, the culmination of 21 other films. His review also made me realise how much fan service there was in Endgame - granted that if you haven't followed all the films then there isn't that amazing payoff. The part where the massive battleship guns stop firing at ground targets and start aiming at something incoming on the horizon, and then Captain Marvel flies in and trashes Thanos's ship - wow, loved it.
