Jay's entry locked the thread

I watched Collateral Beauty on the back of this review:

"Here's a promise few movies can make. If you sink two hours into Collateral Beauty now, it's guaranteed that for the rest of your life, when conversation stalls, you can save the night by asking, "Did you ever see that movie where Will Smith plays an ad executive so shut down with grief over the death of his daughter that his business partners — played by Edward Norton, Kate Winslet, and Michael Peña — hire actors to confront him in public in the roles of Death, Time, and Love, the abstract concepts to whom he has been penning and mailing angry letters?"

Did not disappoint. .5/10.

I expected to hate Patriot's Day, I did. Probably never would have seen it had the screener not popped up while I was sick over Xmas. But I liked it, I did. Thought it was tastefully done. The interviews at the end were a nice touch.

Whitey on the hand was shit. Hardly began to do justice to the real story (or the book if you're interested).

Lot of good QBs in these two games. Still banking on the GOAT to get it done.

Will this thread get to 100 pages before the Donald gets sworn in? That's the real entertainment here.

Go on smalls, Chelsea and the pats FTW

Leftovers is one of my faves. Season 2 is better than season 1.

Sneaky Pete looks good so far.

Thoroughly enjoyed Hunt for the Wilderpeople. From the same director of What we do in the shadows, which I also enjoyed.

"You're more like Sarah connor. In the first one, before she could do chin-ups."

Listened to all of these, they were excellent.

Except for Zackster's. That one was crap.

This is the kind of shit Trumps is reduced to promoting now, the fucking thicket:

Big coup you got the white bible-thumper vote locked up Donnie!


‘Trump has been having a tough time with one key demographic — voters’ - Stephen Colbert

Perfect, thanks Sean.

Been listening to some old Digweed classic mixes circa 2001 on youtube, anybody got any recommendations for best mixes around that time?

Somebody mentioned Friday Night Lights, a seriously underrated show.

Was there some melter in this thread saying Trump was not only going to win but win big?  are we going to talk about "unskewed" polls again? How did that work out last election?

Oh here we go: http://www.mediaite.com/tv/trump-campai … mp-voters/

You really have to be a special shade of stupid to believe this nonsense.

Don't forget in November that I said page 1 or 2 in this thread that Trump would never be elected president.

This says it all about comic book movie fans really:

Critics slam 'Suicide Squad,' so fans try to shut down Rotten Tomatoes

+1 Gomorrah.

Also enjoyed The Disappearance, French mini-series.

Well done IMO.

Oh Yant. Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear. Its absolute fucking dire shit. Pure unadulterated Ameerican patriotic drivel. Please go fuck yourself ASAP.

I was laughing my dick off that more than a few Republicans were aggrieved that Bradley Cooper attended the Democratic convention...fuck sake

so i'm only vaguely aware of the eu vote and the potential consequences, but how close is this to the trump movement in the states?  as in an uneducated populace (a minority i'm sure) following a right wing movement without any thought as to the consequences?


As an outsider this had all the stink of American politics -- plutocrats stoking the fears of the common people to convince them to vote against their interests. Thankfully Trump is going to get smashed in November. Demagoguery only gets you so far.
