" Snatch ".

Flix. No further comment needed then! :boogy:

Suffice to say, I had a Double load of popcorn ready! :D

Do you know what nemesis means? 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A righteous infliction of retribution 

Manifested by an appropriate agent 

Personified in this case by an orrible cnut 

Me

Did you both enjoy it?  Cheers, D.

We would listen to this every year at the  rorkes drift dinner night in the warrant officers and sergeants mess .... spine tingling when the music starts .......  

American Gangster. Netflix, 2 hours 30 mins. Can't believe I've never seen it before! Based on a true story of how a black dude (Denzil Washington) imports drugs from Asia during the Vietnam

I used the character of Neil McCauley for a case study in leadership . I love the little scenes where he finds the wife of val Kilmer in a hotel , when he finds val Kilmer on the couch at his house and the part where they are all sat in the restaurant together . 

it may sound twee , I’m not an bank robber or a team captain  but I do like to think of myself as a good leader . And knowing your people inside out  is such an important thing . 

I love that perfectionist character flaw he has of not being able to let a loose end lie. It’s admirable in doses but when your past the problem with an 80% percent solution , does it matter ? 
 

great character from a great movie , de Niro’s best role imho 

You've gone deep mate. Deeper than i expected for an average film 😇..perhaps I'm too flippant with my appraisal, I don't think I'll give it another go though...

DeNiro plays the sociopath with the soft centre so well.

It was almost a reprisal of his roll in the deer hunter although I wouldn’t be as familiar with Heat as I am the deer hunter which is one of my all time favourite films.

The “This is this” scene I totally got, if indeed there was anything to get because I understood that attitude.

I understand exactly why you would use those type of characters as a teaching aid brother.

Its a much more educated way to display the lesson of “don’t be a c**t” 👍

" The Forgotten Battle ".

Flix. Two hours. War film (WW2. Netherlands).

Forgettable, to be honest. Not the fastest and not exactly ripping action either :(

 

 Now, if ye want to see a Dutch, war film that Is well worth a look? Two hours would be much better spent on their " Riphagen: The Untouchable "! :yes:

" The Trip ".

Flix. Two hours.

Bit of Norwegian nonsense. Bit slower to take off. But, I rode with it and ended up having a couple of fukking good laughs out of it.

Plenty of gratuitous and violent violence. Some of it on the more imaginative side of the scale.

I don't resent having watched it.

" My Name ".

Flix. Eight episodes. 45 mins each.

I managed the first episode. Pretty little girl. Acting wasn't so hammy ...

I just couldn't buy into the story line that an ordinary teen can be transformed into some sort of Jackie Chan over night.

Naah.

What's it about then?

Sorry, mate! I tend to leave it to you checking the reumé on flix, rather than me waffling on.

Basically, a serial killer set to catch another serial killer. From behind bars, as it happens. Very good though :)

Brilliant post there squire....its the small details in relationship connections,the realistic thought processes that made it a great film for me just as a quick example the scene when they have to make a decision right there on the spot do they take the bank or not....Tom Sizemore i forget his name in it says " i,ll go with you Neil whatever you think ".....Neil says " not on this one,your mrs takes good care of you,you have money put away etc etc,be smart and walk away "......then with a few seconds thought Sizemore comes back with that classic line " for me the action is the juice....im in "..........it was such an authentic,clear sighted moment and again,brilliantly played...like yourself im no bank robber but can totally appreciate that commitment to potentially life changing decisions made on the spot......Sizemore is a fantastic actor who go's under the radar for me.
