Seen both these plays but not recently, both good.
I started typing out a list of plays and films ,but it would have been boring for you .so here we go.Condensed version.
Anything by Arthur Miller .
Most of Eugene O Neill.
Anything by Potter.
A lot of Pinter.
Most of Williams.
I go to the theatre about once a month so I see a fair amount of plays.
might start going to the theatre good place to take abird me thinks. Never heard of any of them just read the plays in school thought they was good

The Long and The Short and The Tall was amazing a really great play.

Quote:
Stick with Shakespeare ,he is the master imo.If you cant get on with the verse ,try the films.
Books
Anything by Hemingway
ditto Steinbeck
Lawrence
Most of Fitzgerald.
All of McCarthy
All of Faulks
All of Tolstoy
ditto Turgenev
a Couple of Dostoievsky[The Idiot] [The Gambler] [Crime and Punishment]
I really dont like Shakespeare his stories albeit good are too long winded and get boring and his lanugaue used is a total turn off. Just not my kinda stuff

Steinbeck is a great write love his stuff, Hemingway read alot of quotes (funny ones) and he pops up alot very funny guy.

The African Queen
Casablanca

And of course I watch boxing most days. Just about to watch Bobby Gunn vs Adamek

And I try to plow through at least ONE book a month.................and I listen to loadsa music as well.

**** knows what I'm goin on about, first things I read was Teeto's list of fims, then I've gone on a tangent. Get's that what this thread is for
Taxi drivers good - you talking to me

also speaking about De Niro raging bull

anyone ever seen American Gangster started watching it but it was quite boring to start with

as for sitcoms i used to sit in font of a TV watching Porridge and Only Fools they are classics, also i love mr Bean

do you like the Sweeney?



also got FNR4 today its good im just starting to get good i had a war with Ray Leonard and i was Hearns i stopped him in the 9th a great fight with a brutal KO.

I find the slipping punches and inside fighter very difficult but ill get used to it

You made me like the thread because when i logged in today and saw your conversation it was really interesting to read.

Yeah i didn't list the gangster films cos you'd know which ones i mean, like Scarface etc, the timeless ones. Gran Torino is good, the Wrestler as well. When i was about 19 i thought i'd seen all the mafia/gangster classics, so i wanted to get into something else that's a real man's thing, like Wildlife programmes or something, one name, CLINT EASTWOOD, three films- 'Fistful of Dollars', 'Few Dollars More', then the cream- 'The Good, The Bad and The Ugly'. Quentin Tarantino said it was his favourite film ever, and you can clearly see they are a predecessor to his type of work.

You'll see them in time mate, watch them in that order though.

Yep, they are the 'Leone westerns' I was referring too, quality stuff. Tarantino loved Rio Bravo and Taxi Driver too, in a biography of his he lists his ten favourite films.

If anyone likes Tarantino read Ellmor Leonard books, they're his biggest influence apparently.

gran Torino was shit hot I thought

Who was it, Teeto, that said he liked "Unforgiven"? I'm not real big on Westerns, but that's my # 1 of all time. Also, I like most of John Wayne's movies, "The Man who shot Liberty Valance", is a great one. And Mcvey, mentioned a lot of great films, too. "Treasure of the Sierra Madre," definitely, and other Bogart flicks, Maltese Falcon, The Big Sleep, and I liked the boxing flick, The Harder They Fall... On the Waterfront is probably one of my top picks, It's a Wonderful Life, and of the more recent classics, most things by Scorcese, DeNiro, Pacino, and I like Hoffman too... A couple more obscure ones of these guys'... The King of Comedy, Scarecrow and Midnight Cowboy.

Just wanted to throw my 2 and a half cents into the pot...
