* That's if I have the roles correct.
I agree with what you say about American Cinema these days. We do still make great movies, but they're few and far between. Most everything is made for teenagers, the market that will come out and see a movie at the theatre four and five times. "Mone-ey, it's a gas!"

Good idea. It depends if you like those small, introspective 70s classics or not (which I love).Loads of people being shot isn't my thing, really.

I'm not into plenty of action to be honest, that's why i wasn't totally elated with 'Che', really into learning about the subject, then get loads of action instead, but some interesting parts none the less.

Was.

Yes, he's marvellous in The Sting and a great Bond villain in From Russia With Love "Ok old man" . Even in Jaws, when he's basically a good guy he manages to play an absolute twat.

utd aint gonna do it this year, Arsenal will be the same, lovely moves no finishing touch, I never rate Chelsea to be honest.........I honestly think this could be the year for the Kop!



As a Saints fan I'm happy to report we are now the 4th richest club in Britain!!!! But in League One

Not bad that actually. But hopefully they'll remake the 74/75 season where Liverpool ****ed it up on the penultimate game of the season.

He's one of those guys, always good. I've watched movies I can't call up right now, but where he just pops up on the screen; I've never seen him look bad.

Exactly. No promotion this season, possibly the championship next season, then two years down there.............QPR have shown that a lot of cash does not a good lower-league side make

Death Proof was straight up garbage, more like a wannabe Tarantino rip-off than an actual Tarantino film. It just seemed like he sort of phoned that one in for the collabo with Rodriguez. He's said he did some of the best writing of his life with this film, though. I'm looking forward to it immensely.
