    Movie Choice

    Lets talk about movies,, what god movies have you watched lately that you would recommend?, what would you NOT recommend?

    Do you have a fave movie you watch over again?, or fave actor/actress you like to watch.

    I love Denzel Washington and always enjoy a movie if he is in it, the most recent one i watched was Fences. It was quite good, not the normal type of movie he is in,, or I should say not the normal type of character he plays.His character in this movie is in fact quite unlikable. It was a food thought provoking film though.

    Ones i will watch no matter how often i have seen them ,, if they happen to come on tv i will watch them again Long Kiss Goodnight, a ridiculously over the top far fetched action movie with Geena Davis, Love Actually, Avatar, Pitch perfect.... all easy watching movies really.

    I do like most kinds of genre except horror, i like a thriller, like Bone collector or seven etc,, but not the sort of slasher horror types.

    I like Denzel, too.
    I enjoy the characters he plays.
    Some of my favorites of his have been
    Deja Vu, Philadelphia, Glory, Cry Freedom, Malcolm X, For Queen and Country,...

    I enjoy the old movies, a lot. Last night we watched 'To Be or Not to Be', with Jack Benny.

    The White Helmets

    I just watched it on Netflix Monday Night and I can't stop thinking about those folks.
    I expressly forbid the use of any of my posts anywhere outside of FG (with the exception of the incredibly witty 'get a room already' )posted recently.
    Folks who'd like to copy my intellectual work should expect to pay me for it.

    I am a Quentin Terantino fan myself
    One of my favorites of his was Django. I also really enjoyed The Hateful Eight.
    I think my all time Favorite Movie, Kill Bill.

    I am a big fan of Samuel L Jackson. I think he's a great actor.
    Jamie Fox is as well.

    I watched "I, Daniel Blake" a few weeks ago. As film quality is concerned (acting-wise) it is greatly over-rated - more on a par with an episode of Eastenders, to be honest, but the content of the film is an entirely different matter. Yes, it may be about a fictional character, but the events are so true to real life that it could be a documentary. I've seen the sort of distress caused from all sides of the coin. From the subject himself, to the National Careers Service, and even now, working for Utilita Energy, specialising in Prepayment Meters, where we get an ever increasing caseload of those having their benefits sanctioned & not being able to topup their Gas or Electricity. Fortunately we are based on humanitarian principles & will only leave someone off supply as a very last resort.
