  1. Preferably a comedy, not too bothered about who's in it or when it was made as long as it's funny. Anyone seen anything decent at the cinema lately?
  2. Basically I the last few years I've been watching lots of shows, but now all of a sudden I feel as if all great dramas as drying up Sopranos, the wire, Lost even 24. Can anyone reccomend a good series to get into? I'm off work as my appendix burst recently and bed ridden so have a lot of time to kill! Any suggestions welcome! UTV
  3. To negate further hijacking of the "Recommend Me A Film" thread. I'll kick things off with a bit of a cerebral, high-brow discussion: Who would win in a robot rumble; Evas or Patlabors?
  4. I thought I'd start a separate thread for this because I figured there may be a fair few who want to talk about it but also a lot who don't, so populating The Film Thread with Star Wars posts and spoiler tags could get pretty annoying for some. This thread is for anything related to Episode VII or the new trilogy overall. Anyway, some unconfirmed plot points for Episode VII have been leaked recently. There's nothing too detailed, but I will put them in spoiler tags in case people came in here but still wanted to go into VII blind, not that I think that's going to be a possibility in this day and age. I would warn people that if this thread keeps going for a while as more information about the films are released, the chance for spoilers also increases, so just be careful. Here's the unconfirmed leaked information regarding the plot of VII:
  5. It was announced on Raw that in 2 weeks, the 2010 WWE draft will take place on a 3 hour special edition of Raw who would you like to see on raw? ie The Undertake hasnt been on raw for years. surely its time
  6. Returns tonight 9pm BBC 1 Week 1 The 16 candidates are sent 6,000 miles from home, to the city of Cape Town in South Africa. Voted the best city in the world to visit, the candidates will have the opportunity to capitalise on the booming tourism market as they set up their own safari and vineyard tours.One team’s brash approach to ticket sales causes commotion, while on the other team premium prices prove problematic. With refunds on the horizon, both teams put on their tours. Lost customers send one team’s tour into turmoil, and on the other team big promises leads to bigger problems.Back in the boardroom, there is no time for jet lag as Lord Sugar is on the prowl for explanations. One candidate will become the first to be told, 'You’re fired!'
  7. Good enough (again) now I reckon to deserve its own thread. So what do we think, is Judith dead?
  8. So with the MCU growing all the time, thought it may be best for it to have it's own thread rather than taking over the Film thread at all times. Best to start by quoting the main man: Thanks for the explanation Chindie, I knew that Sony and Fox had rights to some characters but didn't know why. I've read that the Disney/Sony deal is close, so with that in mind, where do you see the MCU going after Avengers 4? I've never read a comic, but heard it's likely that they will go down the Skrull route? Or maybe even Norman Osborn (guessing that is very much Sony dependant?) Listened to a pod cast recently, which had a good idea of Star Lord turning into the next enemy, if everyone is restored apart from Gamorra, whilst unlikely, I liked the idea as potentially he has vast power from his dad's side.
  9. Not really been a film watcher over the past couple of decades, but have got a smart TV. Also trying to ween the other half off Pick TV. Had wanted to see 'District 9' - it's here. A list of full movies The very wonderful Network Awesome here. Click on Archive for a list of films, series, documentaries etc. Keep the chat for the proper film thread, it's more practical if this is kept short & sweet.
  10. After years and years of 'shall I shan't I?' I am finally saying 'sod it' and getting sky. I'm a new customer and ridiculously un-knowledgeable about what's out there, how the packages are made up etc. Anyway, I am after getting all of the sports and maybe some of the movies (this being a gesture to my missus who is worried (with some justification) that I will spend all my time glued to the TV). Does anyone know the best way to go about it. Cable/dish etc. Don't think I'm in an area that Virgin media cover. Thanks
  11. Thought I'd start up a thread for the show since a new season has begun. Hope that's OK mods. I've seen some people complain about the show "polluting" the main TV thread in the past so decided a new topic was warranted, where we can marvel at the blood, gore and nudity in peace . Please keep book spoilers to a minimum and put em in spoiler tags (you guys know the drill). Thought the new season kicked off well. Arya is baller. Also, dragons. Also in response to Ginko's post in the TV thread:

    Top Gear 2019

    New presenters, and an old one. Thoughts?
  13. Not your top ten, your #1. I'll list some obvious acclaimed shows, possibly your pick is one of them, if not, tell us what it is!
  14. I though I'd start a thread rather than clogging up the general TV thread. WARNING if you haven't watched/played this then don't read on!! This will contain plot lines and spoilers! Ok. So I really liked it overall. Format New and different and intriguing in it's possibilities. Is this the start of a new genre? Or will it be a damp squib? I'm not sure but I'd definitely like to see more things like this. Style I grew up in the mid-eighties in the UK so the look/style was very familiar and I starting gaming on Commodores and Spectrums. Full marks for capturing the feeling of the era. Story I felt that it was somewhat simple compared to other Black Mirrors that Brooker has written but maybe the point was to not get too complicated. The most satisfying for me was when he goes back in time and gets on the train with his mom and then he dies in the future. All of the other 'endings' seemed a little weak to me - especially the multiple prison ones when his game gets reviewed in various different ways. Fun Bits The acid trip & the martial arts fight with his doctor. That was totally out of left field. Would love to see more of this style - I wonder if it can be 'large' enough to be really immersive and satisfying?
  15. Starts tonight 9pm Week 1 The teams fly to Valletta in Malta, for a day-long shopping spree. The challenge is to bag nine Maltese items for the lowest possible prices before reuniting at the airport at 7pm. One team quickly hits the road, but they are clearly on the wrong track. On the other team, fiery personality clashes over negotiations quickly rock the boat. As both teams navigate their way to the finish, one takes a punt by returning with items missing, while disregarding the deadline leaves the others facing mutiny. In a heated first boardroom, Lord Sugar doles out hefty fines and on the losing team and someone becomes the first to be fired.

    Doctor Who

    (sorry if already a thread, couldn't find it) So anyone watch it? How fit is the new assistant?
  17. Ok, bit of fun... You are going to live on a remote island for a year for some reason. Let's say for an experiment in isolation. No internet or contact with the outside world. There is power, and running water and regular food/provisions delivered so you won't starve or start smelling like a dead badger. However, entertainment is hard to come by. So to combat boredom, you can take the following to keep you sane... 3x albums 3x books 3x films 1x tv boxset 1x extra entertainment object (could be a guitar, or a mountain bike, or a football, or a surfboard). Basically, something to pass the time. So, what would be on your list?

    Top Gear 2018

    arguably their best ever episode last night with the Japan segment . been a good series so far , they've stopped trying to imitate the original 3 , MLB is just a natural in the lead role now they've let him get on with things , helps that he also gets British" humor " and more importantly from the shows pov they've stopped Rory trying to be Hammond and given him segments on his own where he can be Rory and not try and be someone he clearly isn't Harris is probably beyond help but even he is becoming less of a cock with each episode keep up the good work
  19. This discussion seems to have taken over the film thread so I thought it deserved it's own thread. Even a Top Ten is hard. So much mirth to choose from. Personally (and in no particular order) I'll kick it off with this. My favourite 10 off the top of my head would be Blackadder Fawlty Towers Bottom Spaced Red Dwarf The IT Crowd Father Ted The Young Ones Black Books Porridge Doesn't quite sound right that some of the other names in my head aren't on that list but there we go. Have at it VT.
  20. in tribute to the new alien vs. predator film (which will be ace) i thought i would run this. Alein for me, no competition if arnie can beat the predator then im sure the mighty aliens wont have much trouble. Think the film is out on august 10th and is set in antartica under the ice. Basically aliens and predators are fighting it out with a bunch of humans caught in the middle. nice.

    The Grand Tour

    Just saw the trailer .... it's already better than the Evans series of Top gear Looks like some interesting places , Egypt , Skeleton Coast etc
  22. The season of lists is upon us. There's still 10 days to go ish, but time to get your thinking caps on, for best films. IMDB Releases in 2017 is a useful list, albeit a bit extensive. I'll put a few category ideas up if people want to nominate individual people for "VT Awards" or not - just for fun. No points or prizes, but if people do plonk it in list order I'll work out the definitive film of the year based on a simple points system ( 10 for 1st, 1 for 10th etc ) because I have an odd need to play with numbers and be listy. Also, to be clear I'm counting films only released this year, cinema, DVD or netflix etc, preferably in the UK, but if you're a dastardly VT foreigner with different release dates then I'll let you off. The other thread serves older classics you've enjoyed / hated / noted as having been witnessed well enough. Top 10 / 5/ 3 (delete as applicable) Films Worst Film of the Year Best Performance - Male / Female / Robot Best Score / Music / Whatever Attribute you care about etc. Please Quit Acting Bad Performance Award So will it be the annoying dancers in La La Land who get your vote, Casey Affleck suffering miserably in Manchester by the Sea or various incarnations of Lego / Comic Book creations. I have a provisional list of 20 that I'm cutting down to this, subject to edit and any new DVD's obtained over christmas. Also I realised I can't count Your Name as apparently that came out last year. 1. T2: Trainspotting - a surprise entry , but honestly the more I think back on, the more I really enjoyed the focus on Spud as a plot point and enjoyed the re-acquaintance with old friends. 2. Dunkirk - as a cinematic experience it was utterly intense, gripped me the whole way and I was glad of the chance to breathe again when it finished. For me the non-linear approach worked well, the score was gruelling and the experience memorable. 3. Thor - just nails the humour so well - had a tremendous amount of fun, more or less from the start. 4. Manchester by the Sea - bleak, but powerful and Casey Affleck get's a nod from me for best performer here. But as good as the film is, it made me so depressed I cannot put it in a top 3, as re-watchability is one of my personal metrics for these lists. 5. The Death of Stalin - black comedy pitched at just about the right level, makes you understandably feel awkward in times but the comic absurdity is a gem. Buscemi and Isaacs are great but Simon Russell Beale is fantastic. 6. Battle of the Sexes - well made, soaks you in the period, and Emma Stone and Steve Carrell are both terrific. Empathic portrayals of all the characters made it a really pleasant film to watch. 7. Star Wars Last Jedi - it's great fun, and shows some ambition with the character arcs, has it's flaws but I'm not too fussed by them to be honest, it was a terrifically entertaining film. 8. Baby Driver - lower than I thought as on re-watch it seemed to have lost a bit of it's charm - nothing to do with Spacey either, I just think at the time I watched it I was mentally in the right zone to enjoy a pulsating musical ride. 9. Blade Runner 2049 - Sumptuous but did take it's time to get going at times, I was a little impatient at the time watching it, but I think on reflection afterwards I will enjoy re-watching this again and absorbing myself fully into it. Immersive atmosphere and score. Probably a better film than others up the list, but I am part judging on how I enjoyed it on first viewing. 10. Logan - more intensity, and great to see a much darker take with these characters. Just missing out: Atomic Blonde, cold war noirish glam thriller; Wonder Woman - great to see to a well executed female lead superhero film, though CGI was naff, Lego Batman - another giggle fit, and definitely re-watchable.
