    Trivial Things That Annoy You...

    I've said it before and I say it again: 1) People eating apples, pears or crisps in a confined public setting. 2) The anticipation faces on a person as they are about to eat/drink soup off a spoon. Extra cunt points if the spoon clanks against their teeth. 3) People who cup their cup of tea with both hands, blow it, then slurp it anyway and slam the cup down as if it's 1am in a nightclub and they've done a shot of tequila.

    Comic Book and Superhero movie & TV discussion.

    I've waited nearly twenty years for this, and that ending to Split ruined my normally placid disposition to the point where I grabbed my missus' head and started shaking it side to side in the cinema when the realisation kicked in as to what exactly was going on after the initial shock and confusion over why the Unbreakable theme was playing. That ending was Shyamalans' greatest trick. Even more so than the Sixth Sense reveal, and Glass is my most anticipated movie in a long, long, long time.

    Which computer game character are you?

    With pure vanity and ego, I'd like to think Ken from Street Fighter 2 but in reality, I'd probably be perceived as Leisure Suit Larry.

    First trip to the cinema

    Something similar happened to me also. Paid into see Robin Hood : Prince Of Thieves and sneaked...snuck...into T2. Was escorted out of T2 just as Arnie took the bikers sunglasses and had to sit through that cunting Costner film. After that, I got a fake ID from Dublin Bus a few weeks later that declared me as 15 and then the cinema world was my oyster...to an extent. Point Break three times. One of the greatest cinema experiences of my life, to this day. JFK, however, wasn't. That is no movie for a pre teen to be sitting through just because he could.

    DVDs and Films You Have Watched Recently 3 - The Final Insult

    Funnily enough, Barry Lyndon is next on the list so I'll give that a watch and then I'll go onto Paths of Glory and The Killing. For some reason I always thought the Killing and Killers Kiss were just potboilers with better options out there in that era, but my oullad has always maintained The Killing was a trailblazer. On The Shining though, watching it there a few nights ago shit me up. I was fine watching it and enjoyed it (and the pacing) more than I did the first time I seen it, but it was when I went to bed that it all started flooding into me and I started wondering what exactly happened and the fucking imagery haunted me. Something as simple as the wallpaper in the hotel. Can't explain it. But yeah, I'm all in on The Shining now, and it's probably one that I'll watch another six times before the year is out. Has anyone read Doctor Sleep? Bit curious as to how that works...

    Not yet. I'm working my way backwards through his catalogue. But consider my interest in Paths of Glory, piqued. My reasoning for going backwards, was the thinking that if I start with his more accessible recent stuff first then I'll be more receptive to his earlier stuff that before now, I had little or no interest in.

    I've very recently changed my mind on Full Metal Jacket. As a now 39 year old man, I can safely say it's better than Platoon and possibly the greatest war movie I've ever seen. Quite a contrast from "That's a load of my bollocks!" which is what I greeted it with initially. D-Mal is to blame for my sudden turn into a lust and thirst for all things Kubrick.

    VeganMania

    Dem der genetix. The Rock didn't use any PEDs for Pain and Gain, or any of his movies, for that matter. None of them did. Ever. Had a look and he seems to be balls deep in the culture, but the picture is a bit disconcerting. It looks like a St.Bernard did a plop on the crown of his head.

    VeganMania

    Just ploughed through this thread and being a stereotypical Libran I can see both sides of the argument. I did dabble in veganism a few years back when I quit dairy and said I might as well go all out, but I was absolutely bollocksed - steamrollered - 90% of the time and couldn't get through a working day let alone my workouts (which I genuinely need for my mental health, even more so than my physical health or vanity) so it wasn't for me. One of my mates and his wife are vegan and I fucking hate getting lumbered with either of them after a night out because they turn into awful crusading, judgmental bastards when I want an Aberakebabra or even a slice of poxy ham or at 4am. In saying that, I completely understand why people don't want to put animal product and their many offshoots into their body and I do like the idea of it, but I don't think I could ever be some militant Cruciferists like that pair.

    Good stuff you've bought - under £20

    Poundlands' Number 6 collagen filler. Magnificent stuff. Also Old Spice Odor Blocker Body Washed Shower Gel and Deodorant for €3.00 I also got the Predator and Predator 2 movie novelisations off Amazon. Both for €2.00. Considering the latter sells for £80+, I'd say that's a cracking deal.

    First trip to the cinema

    I remember going to see a Ghostbusters and Stripes double bill in the Adelphi in Dublin when I was 4 or 5, and my da panicking, jazz handing and shuttling us out of the cinema when a load of diddies covered in mud popped up on the screen during Stripes. I didn't know what was going on. My da was great though. He used to bring me to see things he wanted to see, that was so age inappropriate for me. Stuff like Raising Arizona, Platoon, Lethal Weapon, Monster Squad, Back to School, The Mission and Hamburger Hill being some standouts. I know I was brought to ET a few times, but I was far too young to remember that.

    I went in expecting absolute diatribe and I found myself laughing and thoroughly enjoying the movie. I think the gutter expectations worked in my favour on this. It's a bit all over the place but it's the right kind of disjointed mess, if that makes sense. I defy anyone to hold in a smile during . I'll give you a free shot at hitting me a dead arm, if you hate it Chest, but I really think you might like it. Particularly if you're partial to the Hudson Hawks of the world.

    What is the best animal? (Jack russells)

    Tim Cahill, Bruce Campbell and the missus named your wan Saoirse because she thought the dog looked Irish. I didn't know how to even respond, or if I should even respond, to that line of reasoning.

    What is the best animal? (Jack russells)

    I have a Jack Russell, a golden Labrador and a Viszla. The Jack and the Lab are brilliant. It's a toss up between Tim (Jack) and Bruce (lab) for best animal ever. Both are so happy to be alive, play and chew on shoes and radiators, but Saoirse (Viszla) is a little cunt. Her meals have to be cooked to absolute perfection. Preferably lambs liver, gravy, spuds and a few prawns. And huffs and sighs if I sit down to watch telly. Lab - if pushed - for me though. The loyalty and temperament on that lad is heart melting
