What are you watching tonight?

If you have a life outside of BWFC, then this is the place to tell us all about your toilet habits, and those bizarre fetishes.......

The Long Good Friday. This may seem a premature viewing but it's so good any time of the year is permitted.

This was the film that first brought Bob Hoskins to public attention, and a who's who of future names. The soundtrack is horribly dated and the storyline isn't explained until well into the final third but this is one of the best British films ever made.

Some memorable quotes such as "you don't go crucifying people outside a church, not on Good Friday"

If you've never seen this release, pick up a copy as soon as you can it's well worth a couple of hours of anyone's time.

Hey Orton, unusual to see you anywhere but the football forum, but welcome back anyway. :wink:
Long Good Friday is a real golden oldie and seems a long time back now. Good film though.

9.05 on Freeview 24 tonight for a re watch of the old classic: The Dirty Dozen. As this sort of film goes, few have touched it for entertainment even though it's fifty years old. .

Oh dear. BBC television's agenda to ram utterly shite 'comedy' at us has another notch to its belt. Recorded something entitled 'Hospital People' on Saturday, I've somehow managed to stand 15 minutes worth. Utterly 4ucking dreadful.

To be added to the list that already contains Mrs Brown's Boys, c*nt Arthur Strong and Citizen Khan. Seriously - that bad!

I kindda hate myself for having never heard of 'Comedians in cars getting coffee' before Rob Brydon talked about it on the Adam Buxton podcast, but ive been rifling through episodes lately! its easy coz they're only about 15 minutes each. Basically a rip off of Carpool but its Jerry Seinfeld talking to other comedians while driving some old classic car to a coffee shop. its really great! well the conversation is really great but the very American format does grate a bit! it would work better as another podcast actually...

Old Louis Theroux with the missus. About Ultra Zionists in Israel. Our narrator goes along to a circumcision ceremony, and the Rabbi is in the full gear including the little tefillin box on his head.

Girl: is he wearing a go-pro?!

Absolutely dying.

Watched Room this morning, was an emotional wreck! absolutely stunning overwhelming and profound film. 5 stars.
This. Good job I'm a heartless Tory voting bastard. Otherwise I'd have been blubbing at the end ;)

A truly magnificent film with some exceptional performances, especially from the kid. Prepare to be moved.

Glad you watched that Bruce. As I said at the time, a massively controversial film; but a necessary one.

Many thanks for the recco, Tango. It never occurred to me the levels to which this was being covered up. Highly controversial, as you say, but absolutely necessary.
