  1. Unless you have an Odeon in the spare room, do yourself a favour and go and see Dunkirk at the cinema. It doesn't necessarily need to be on the BFI IMAX down at Waterloo, but on a big screen with decent sound or you're just robbing yourself. If it wasn't so exhausting I'd be going to see it again tomorrow instead of at the weekend.
  2. Spurs, like most teams, have stock images ready to go for social media. These largely consist of the player cheering and it will be posted with a caption to illustrate the score. When Janssen's got used a friend of mine commented underneath that they hadn't thought it would take so long to use that shot when they'd taken it. Having just put that, it doesn't sound as funny in my text, but I can assure you that at the time it was hilarious.
  3. There's not much wrong with Thunderball. Vulcan bombers, an amazing theme tune, and sharks. Ticks all the boxes.
  4. A Merlin engine through Dolby Atmos will almost certainly hit the brown notes. Take spare pants.
  5. Surely the lack of Basil Exposition is a massive positive.
  6. I concur. Scandalously hot Bond Girls are not for this thread.
  7. It's true that nobody does it better. It almost makes me feel sad for the rest.
  8. No matter how many times I read this my brain just can't quite compute it. Miranda's a definite yes from me.
  9. I think you'll find that was Romelu Lukaku.
  10. The thing is these aren't really payscale jobs are they, even within the same gender. If Dan Walker were suddenly the permanent lead presenter on MotD he's not going to get the same as Lineker was on as he doesn't have the name value or prior career as a top level international footballer. There's more of an argument for those of similar profiles and experience to be on a similar wedge. Even within that, live shows that require you to get up at 3am should probably attract a premium to pre-records that tape at tea-time. Also marquee talent are going to attract a premium. Presenter X presenting "Friday Night Chat" isn't going to have the same PAYE as Presenter Y presenting "Presenter Y's Chat Show (on a Friday Night)." Unless they put everyone on a flat retainer it's very difficult to pay people equally when there are so many variables in play. In fairness, where possible and plausible they do seem to be applying it.
  11. You know he's never out of his full regalia. No one paps him in a string vest and jean shorts.
  12. Yeah the "Awkward" front page was a crock of shit. Walker's made the point on Twitter until his fingers have bled. Nice bit of distraction and riling up by Uncle Rupert though.
  13. That would have been a treat for me. Love a bit of The Duke.
  14. Yeah, without a flight number that second one probably didn't exist. I know it's easy to be wise after the event but if you travel a lot an annual policy can pay for itself several times over with a single claim. Might be worth considering for the future.
  15. I hope the hashtag was #notmylannister
