    Anyone else ever seen a UFO?

    Same here. Am deeply sceptical about all of it although obviously I can suspend disbelief in order to enjoy horror, fantasy etc.

    What Is The Last Film You Watched? (Older Films)

    Easter double-bill. Hehehe. Life Of Brian - now 40 years old, and still as irreverently hilarious as ever. Peerless religious satire. Nude Nuns With Big Guns - the sort of thing that probably plays in Tarantino's head when he has a fever, this low-budget 'nunsploitation' flick is heavy on the gratuitous nudity, violence and bad gringos. Perfect late-night-with-beer 'mantertainment'.

    I hope she left/leaves him.

    Heh, well thank you. That said, if the writing is given a bit of a kick up the arse and Ryan is dropped Jodie will be a fine Doctor.

    Sounds more fun than one I watched recently called 'The Love Witch'. It was absolute balls.

    Concerts are getting worse

    Have found other audience members at orchestral concerts mostly OK. I agree there are several types of twat at rock/pop gigs, including - The chatters. Sing along, clap, cheer, dance by all means ... but this is NOT the place to attempt conversation. The ones seemingly intent on seeing the gig through their phone's video-recording facility. Take pics, sure ... but you're not Steven bloody Spielberg, pal. Get it out of my eyeline! The ones blind-drunk before the band have even taken the stage. I'll be as far away from you as possible buddy, because I'm not taking the chance of having beer spilled on me, you puking on me or you starting a fight over fuck-all. The ones who give absolutely no indication that they actually LIKE the band that they've paid between 50 - 80 (on average) quid to see ... no smile on their faces, toes resolutely untapped, arms not waved or used for clapping because they refuse to unfold them. OMG WHY ARE YOU HERE, YOU ABSOLUTE COCK?!? That said, none of them have yet succeeded in putting me off from going.

    Good news ... the Phantom Of The Opera has said Quasimodo can move in with him, provided he's cool with the whole 'living underground' thing.
  8. When it comes to recent Star Wars, I greatly enjoyed TFA and Rogue One but was a bit 'cooler' on TLJ and Solo. Not crazy about the title of this, but the rest of it's looking good.

    What would you like to see added/improved in JWFan?

    Little clickable up/down arrows to take you to the top/bottom of a thread page instantly would be good, other forums have them. Just sayin'.

    Anyone else prefer Batman & Robin to the Nolan films?

    'Gonna change into a pair of shoes for the premiere, John honey?' 'Nah, these slippers will be fine'.

    Don't remember much of Forever's score ... on the soundtrack though, Seal's Kiss From A Rose and U2's Hold Me Thrill Me Kiss Me Kill Me are both terrific.

    FYEO is one of my favourites of Moore's ... the opening with 'not named for legal reasons' Blofeld and the Thatcher gag at the end are too much, but the rest is quality (particularly Moore's 'ice in the veins' kicking of Locque's car off the cliff edge).

    Anyone else prefer Batman & Robin to the Nolan films?

    Even if you forgive Batman And Robin everything else, there's still Alicia Siverstone's horribly delivered 'You're compost!' to Uma Thurman's Poison Ivy. Was amused by George Clooney saying that the movie basically killed the franchise for 8 years and a large part of that was his fault.

    What are you drinking tonight?

    Last night, it was mostly Grolsch.
