    Well that’s me telt! I thought it was good but you obviously think it shouldn’t have been made. :84: And chequered past? The real bomber struck numerous other targets and was later caught, just because a guy is a bit out there doesn’t make him guilty. But maybe that was the whole plot, trial by media is maybe the point being made.

    I think that’s a given :56:

    The parallels are ridiculous but obviously easily explainable when you realise the film is based entirely on the science of a pandemic.

    He was in a baseball movie with Justin Timberlake and Amy Adams. Trouble with the curve. Very enjoyable.

    Watched Blazing Saddles for the first time last night, brilliant! Probably not very politically correct in these days but still funny as *

    The scene when the black sheriff holds himself hostage with the gun is one of the funniest things I've seen. :giggle1:

    We used to get shown this in high school when holidays where looming.That was in the mid 90s as well. Really shows you how times have changed.

    Finally saw the rise of Skywalker, absolute jobbies, plot was all over the place, should have left the original 6 movies alone.

    Last Jedi gave them the chance, like Empire, to build something new and interesting, but they played it safe. Bringing back Palpatine, giving Rey a connection to an established character, having Ben/Kylo reform, etc, etc, etc. It's not as awful as some make out, but it's not great either.
