    Agreed. The Wire was the best show I had seen until Season 4 of Breaking Bad. This season takes the show to a whole new level. The finally will blow your mind.

    Does anyone else think the young guy from Breaking Bad was modeled after Eminem?
    For future reference, there is a TV show thread in Everything Else that I will reboot to the top of the list.

    Back on movies, after my recent war books phase I am on a war movie phase now. Watched Black Hawk Down again last night. I enjoy it for the sheer intencity and found the only blight being Eric Bana's outrageously bad american accent. Platoon is next on the list.

    Black Hawk Down is a great example of 40 year old Russian stock is better than 10 year old US stock.

    not much on films but today saw that on cable, for about 8 hours straight there would be a "Mission Impossible marathon".

    Films 1 through 4.

    Back-to-back.
    so like a drongo i laid on the sofa and watched the lot.

    MI1: ace tinpot suspense.
    MI2: bit heavy on the romantic spanish guitar Vidal Sassoon shampoo slo-mo Jackie Chan bollox there Tom
    MI3: wow, this one really kicks arse. full-blast implausible action. wFT was going on with the cheesy outlandish shit in #2
    MI4: back to the MI1 suspense angle.

    ps Tom had a hair weave between MI3 and MI4. Lustrous.

    psp I now love Tom Cruise.
    He is the greatest.
    I am now his #1 fan.
    He is the BEST.
    After 8 hours I feel like I am now his captive.
    I am now semi bi-curious about Scientology.
    After 8 hours of Tom Cruise, I think I may have developed a case of full-blown Stockholm Scientologists Syndrome. It feels great.

    Have you guys seen "The Martyrs"? This film is such a beauty, it's a bit disturbing but beautiful nonetheless. You guys should see it.

    Apocalypse Now hasn't aged well & Redux is more-or-less redundant so the all-time best Vietnam War movie remains Full Metal Jacket with Hamburger Hill a close second.

    **SPOILERS** if you havent seen Solaris or Prometheus dont read.

    SOLARIS

    What. The Fuck. George Clooney goes to space station, has one big long sooky mope about his dead hologram girlfriend and then it just ends. If you crank the volume for the end credits you might even hear me yelling at the telly "what the fuck was that? It's finished?"

    My Rotten Tomatoes rating guesstimate was 22%. It got 66% with the critics having a massive communal tug. "Best thriller in last 3 decades" etc. WFT. Nothing fucking happened then it ended. As Camp Leader remarked, "if it wasnt for George Clooney's face nobody would care at all about this movie."

    Georgie has massive sook about dead hologram chick in space. The End.

    PROMOTHEUS

    Now we're talking! Grandiose sci-fi planets, flashing lights, deth, flashy future lighty lighty gizmos, creepy crawlies, more deth, more than 3 people in the film unlike Georgie's shit effort, little mad max buggies, epic space shit, the works. This film kicks arse. My RT rating is 92%.

    Best moment was when smug humanoid robot, after travelling thru space for 2 years, finally meets 7 ft tall original human. After having rudely woken the huge lug up from his peaceful millenial slumber, he blabs some mumbo jumbo up at him and the giant lug cradles wee mans face as the little fella looks all contented, his lifes work at fruition, then the big c**t just rips the rude little shits head off and chucks it over there. "I don't care how far you've come, don't wake me up. C**t."

    ^^^^^^^ used to be a big favourite of mine but last time I watched it (admittedly shortly after seeing his wife's doco "Hearts of Darkness") it occurred to me just how all over the shop it is compared to FMJ. Still a pretty decent movie, though, and pisses all over Platoon.

    I preferred it more recently than when I first saw it - mind you a mate told me he feared I was going the way of Capt Kurtz so i thought I better watch it again!

    ^^^^^^^^ so did he think your methods were unsound? Or could he see no method? The horror! The horror! :)

    It was Colonel Kurtz, BTW.

    OK so it's not a film I've seen but the book was abso-fuckin-lutely amazing & the movie looks to have a fairly decent cast & director* so I'm really hanging out to see it:

    image.jpeg

    For those who don't know, it's about a whaling ship that had a really, really unlucky last voyage which ended with it sinking pretty much as far from land as it's possible to get. Simply amazing story that makes Bligh's look like a Sunday arvo jaunt in a jolly rowboat, eh what.

    * God I hope they don't fuck it up.

    Just watched Deer Hunter for the first time.
    Allowing for the passage of 38 years or so it is absolutely top shelf. Thoroughly recommended.
    Will now have to watch Hamburger Hill and maybe FMJ before casting my vote on this subject.

    TDH is definately Top-5 material but do yourself a favour & watch FMJ next then advise whether you're Pvt Joker, Pvt Cowboy or Pvt Animal Mother..... just please don't be Pvt Joker's CO :)

    Not much on all them miserable blood and gore war films but I will say this: "Tropic Thunder" is the single greatest war film ever made. It has everything. Blood, death, mud, jungle, bushes, death, ammunition, bullets, soaring string moments and bad guys.

    In summary, everything required of the modern day war film.
