What film have you just watched?

Feck me I've only just seen the Official Trailer for the new James Bond Film, 'No Time To Die' featuring 18 year old Billy Eilish singing the theme song.

That scene where Bond leaps off the viaduct holding a length of rope with one hand FFS. I am looking forward to seeing this.

Before Daniel Craig took on the role of Mr Bond I had never watched a Bond Film, but I've seen all the films where he has played Bond. He is one cool handsome bastrad.

Ahem...cough..I'm not, but if I had to take one for the team...
Just heard the song - **** me, why are they all so ******* dull nowadays! Marginally better than the Sam Smith drivel - last decent one was for Casino Royale, which was the last decent film tbh.

Watched Kursk last night on Netflix, never knew the RN offered help , good film
They couldn't get the Seaway Eagle (Seven Eagle at the moment) for the movie so they used the Atlantic Tonjer.

Which was the Normand Tonjer (or Todger to the witty types below decks) when I was on her.

And thus my extremely tenuous connection to the Kursk.
 
Deadtectives



A team of hapless reality TV ghost hunters experiences true paranormal activity for the first time while filming a make-or-break episode in the most haunted mansion in Mexico.

No spoilers from me but worth a watch if you like a good story - scary enough to make you jump, but with some extremely laugh out loud funny bits. My Doris even enjoyed it and she's not a fan of horror films.

Even better - it's on youtube for free...


Enjoy... :)

The League of Gentlemen.
Seen it several times, but happy to watch it again. Apart from the Army stuff it is a good yarn, and I am always fascinated to see London in 1960, the year I was born. Very little traffic, men in hat’s, smoking nearly everywhere...
Was that one where they boosted an Army payroll from an Army camp dressed in their old uniforms?

Nope. They robbed guns, lots of guns from the Army camp as a means to carry out their future bank heist, but they (or at least some of them) did dress up in uniform to do it.

Yes a good film.
Dreadfull way to die and if only 25% of what was portrayed in the film is correct the senior command and the hierachy within the russian system should forever be utterly ashamed.

Yep, I enjoyed it too.

When it happened, I was in Kosovo just across the road from Pristina airport which was full of Russian troops.

I tuned my TV in to their signal to get a feed of what their media were jabbering on about. Didn’t understand a bloody word of it!

I always thought all bond films were childish nonsense ( secret bases in volcanoes ffs) until Craig took on the role.
I wouldn't describe Craig as handsome too much of a pugnacious looking jock about him.

I've got that on my Netflix watch list. I too wasn't aware that the RN had offered assistance.

If not done so already, read this:-


Very detailed and doesn't worry about political sensitivities by suggesting a crusty old Admiral was insensitive at the families meeting when history records it was Mad Vlad' and correctly points out that it was Lea Seydoux's character that was given a surprise sedative and dragged out, not the rotund babushka a few seats away.

It also indicates how they were able to piece together what the survivors were doing as one of the officers was keeping a log/diary, which was recovered from the wreck, and the author had sight of it - quotes it several times, as it happens.

But, yeah - still a good flick.

RIP those still on patrol...

If you like A League Of Gentlemen, try and catch episode 1 of the new series of Inside No 9 called The Beautiful Game starring David Morrisey, it's an absolute Corker, fecking genius in fact.

Spot on.

Happy to be corrected, but the outdoor scenes of the robbery appear, in part, to be filmed at the east end of Great Tower street: I'm sure the parish church of what was HM Customs and Excise can be seen in one background.
It's fascinating to not only gawp at the lack of traffic, but what became of some of the buildings-so that's what the Hung, Drawn and Quartered looked like back in the day!*


* For those unaware, and tourists, this is a very cleverly adapted pub that appears to be about 300 years old and draws in the tourists like a bee to honey. In actual fact it was a bank branch up to about 20 odd years ago.
