Michael Owen Hates Films / UKFF Loves Food

Recommended Posts

I don't imagine there are many people on this forum who have watched fewer films than I have tbh. Its nothing to do with attention span or anything, as I've happily watched Der Untergang (Downfall) and Lincoln more than once, and both of those are nigh on three hours each. Its more to do that there's not a real cinema within a 40 mile radius, and I watch so much Football etc, that there's only a certain amount of hours in a day. I'll make the effort if its based on a historical event I'm interested in, or hilariously funny.

Would I say I hate films in general? No, but neither are they a priority in my life either.

 

Most of the people I know who like Wrestling, also tend to watch a lot of films, read comic books, collect DVD's and shy away from sport in general. My Dad taught me as even as a kid to treat lads who don't like Football or Rugby with suspicion, which was probably wrong on his part, but its difficult to fight it sometimes!

I know a lot of people in this thread have said that they fall into the same category as Owen but they don't. He said he hates films. I don't think anyone here falls into that same massively stupid boat. Thankfully.

Haha, is this just a North Wales thing, or is it the modus operandi of fathers everywhere?

a boy i work with loves to bust out the 'why would i read the book when i can watch the film?' line all the time, and he always says it with a big shit eating grin on his face, with his rotting teeth on display like he's one upped everyone who's ever read a book, what an annoying fuck he is.

It was definitely prevalent amongst my friends and I when we were in school.

 

In fact the school held the football trials the same time as the drama auditions and from that day on the drama lot were known as the gays and would seek solace around the side of the drama theatre whilst the rest of us played footy. What a bunch of cunts we were.

Dislike of the following things meant you were gay at school:-

 

Football

Chips

Your Mother Wouldn't Like It

 

If you disliked all three then this meant your whole family was gay.

On the subject of book reading, a friend of mine was being a sanctimonious prick about reading the Game of Thrones books. Turned out he'd just listened to the audiobooks - that doesn't fucking count!

I don't even know what the last one is.

 

I do like chips, though.

Owen was in an advert a few years back, can't remember what for now, though I'm sure it involved being at an airport/baggage reclaim. He had a one liner at the end and I'm 99% sure it was overdubbed by John Sachs. An appropriately boring anecdote about such a boring man.

 

I've never listened to an audiobook before. Does the person reading them put on accents for the different characters? I just imagine them being the same as me reading the UK Regional accent version of "The Gruffalo" to my daughter.

Going on a tangent from the OP's question, I'd just like to say I carry a dislike for Owen for being, IMO, the biggest case of wasted potential I've ever seen. Not just for Liverpool, but for England, too. He was an explosive striker who was so good at a high level from such a young age. Injuries done him obviously, but I bet he ruing certain choices he made in his career. Should have been so much more. Could have been one of the best ever.

With regard to books, John Waters said it best.

If you go home with somebody, and they don't have books, don't fuck 'em!

Worse than people who don't read are those that only read crap like A Game of Thrones then lord it over people, If you're gonna act all high and mighty about reading then choose something other than some hebephiles fantasy wank fodder.

"Your Mother Wouldn't Like It" was a sort of "Yoof TV" franchise, I think. They had regular programmes on TV, mainly older kids' programming.

 

I remember bits of the main programme, but I remembered more the spin-offs, "Round The Bend" and "Palace Hill", which I was always surprised ITV approved for kids' viewing, as they had some risqué stuff on them.
