What's 'Balde Runner' ?
Is it about a folically challenged athlete?
Or a hairdresser on the run maybe?
Or a documentary about Brazilian bikini lines?
You've not heard of Blade Runner? :shock:

4 - last one is not proper though, no MATT DAMON!

Really enjoyed Rogue 1, first father / son cinema experience. I don't think he understood most of the plot, just happy there was lots of fighting. Good enyty point into the original trilogy, which we have a year to get through, plus force awakens.

The original car chase, brilliant! When the baddies appear in his rearview mirror to kick it off.

Went and seen T2 - was only a toddler when the first one came out, but the sequel it was a solid 8/10. Brilliant scene in a social club, still laughing now at it 2 days later.

Went and saw it on Tuesday - I'll even go to 9/10.
Watched original on Sat night, first time I'd seen it since it's release at cinema. Forgot how good it was too!

Dallas Buyers Club
thought it was a great film,showing the misconceptions of the HIV/AIDS back in that time,and one guy's fight to live as long as possible,by taking into his own hands to survive,Leto and McConaughey are brilliant in this

Bitter Lake, explains how the west got to where it is with the middle east,It seems that all the leaders in all countries in all the world are duplicitous ar5eh0le5 and have multi layered agendas that have completely backfired and destabilised the world. And for what end? Because it's all ending in tears.they have let the Genie out of the bottle and can't get it back in

Nearly finished BDC, agree it's very good. Usually detest McConaughey, but he does well in this.
