Movies/TV Shows

edited December 1969 in GENERAL CHAT
Just to replicate the thread on the old forum.

Is Jim Lovie on this new board?

I'm now watching Godfather 2 Which I don't find so good as the original.

  • I'm here.

    I watched that Racing Legends thing about Stirling Moss.
    Normally those programmes just cover old ground, but I quite enjoyed that one.

    Also watched a prog about Clara Bow.
  • I watched Godfather 3 last night which was quite good. Now need to hunt top movie lists for something else.
  • The IMDB top 250 is good for ideas.

    I've watched most of the top 100 apart from some newer films, they tend to drop down the list as the hype recedes.

    I seem to be getting addicted to old detective series - I used to hate them.

    Maigret with Michael Gambon is being shown on one of the ITV channels, I've been recording them and have enjoyed a couple.
    I got quite into Garrow's Law.
  • Just watched this:

    <!-- m -->http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0114745/<!-- m -->

    A part of history I had not heard of.

    Sadly lots of racist issues.
  • Watched an old documentary about the making of Blade Runner on iPlayer, probably watch the film again in the next few days.
    <!-- m -->http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b0 ... de_Runner/<!-- m -->

    It really is a fascinating film, all pre-CGI which gives it a look and feel that films just don't have these days.
  • Hasn't TV been abysmal for the last couple of weeks? It's as though they go out of their way to show the biggest load of junk ever. Last nicht there was actually a programme to watch, amnd it was stunning. David Attenborough's "Africa" . Just stunning.
  • I only caught the tail end of "Africa" I hope its repeated. Was horrible to hear the number of Rhino's still being killed <!-- s:cry: -->:cry:<!-- s:cry: -->
  • Can you get iPlayer on your TV?

    It's changed the way I watch BBC, I prefer to use iPlayer as I can stop for breaks.

    My Sony TV has iPlayer in the menus, and Channel 5 player (hardly every anything worth watching).

    Unfortunately it doesn't do Channel 4 OD or ITV Player.

    Yes, it makes you weep Stan.The authorities seem to be fighting a losing battle.. I have just jumped down "Martin"'s(Crazy Cats) throat on the Dark SIde in Colin's Bar for making a facetious remark about rhino horn being worth a bit of money. Utter pillock.
    Africa is on every week now Stan, I'm going to make sure not to miss it. The photography is just amazing.
  • I did end up watching Blade Runner again. iPlayer has the one without the voice over, it's so much better.

    Watch if after the 'Dangerous Days' documentary also on iPlayer to get a better appreciation of how it was made.
  • BBC - Africa - stunning in HD available on I Player
  • BBC has a season of classic old films, I'm spoiled for choice on iPlayer.

    Of Human Bondage, The Little Minister, Sylvia Scarlett, The Wooden Horse.

    I don't know where to start.
  • The Magic Roundabout? <!-- s:D -->:D<!-- s:D -->
  • Ended up watching 'Shanghai Express'.

    Just brilliant.

  • I'm now on to" Hamish Macbeth" <!-- s:o -->:o<!-- s:o -->

    I've been watching a few of them too.

    I used to hate that sort of thing, but as I get older I need some gentle TV.
    Pie In the Sky is still one of my favourites of this type.

    That's another of my favourites. I'll probably start on Ballykissangel as well and swoon over Dervla <!-- s:oops: -->:oops:<!-- s:oops: -->
  • Is Ballykissangel repeated anywhere? I remember it being hugely popular then it seemed to disappear.

    Not sure I could stand Stephen Tompkinson though, I loathe that wildlife soap he's in.

    Maybe it's eternal Rosemary & Thyme for the both of us.
  • Is Ballykissangel repeated anywhere? .

    I think ITV are the experts at repeats but Bally K was BBC.
  • Has anyone watched 'Father Dowling Mysteries' ? - really like that. (Think Donald would too as he likes Murder She Wrote !)
    I have enjoyed watching 'The Royal' over the few weeks before Christmas, also 'Heartbeat'

    Heartbeat makes me very homesick. My uncles farm was is in the heart of the area

    Doc Martin gives me a moving pang. I adore Cornwall.
  • BBC Alba has been showing Dr. Finlay's Casebook - I must catch one of those.
  • I'm still trying to find something as good as Foyle's War.
  • I'm still trying to find something as good as Foyle's War.

    Definitely another favourite of mine I've seen most series but believe I've missed some
  • Found a great Ealing style film on BBC Alba last night - Laxdale Hall.

    It's on again next Saturday.

    Lots of famous faces when they were very young - Fulton Mackay, Prunella Scales, Roddy McMillan, Rikki Fulton
  • Last night I suffered the best exotic Marigold Hotel. Would rather watch custard set <!-- s:D -->:D<!-- s:D -->
  • Something about polars bears on BBC tonight, sounds ideal for HD.
  • Have to admit to watching "Ripper Street" on BBC 1 and quite enjoying it.....

    ...and "Lewis" is back on ITV but whose stupid idea is it to make it into a two one hour programmes with the next one a whole week away?

    Liking it too. Very violent though,. Then, the Victorian East End was like that.

    My city office was within about 400 yards away from three of the Ripper Murders.

    Some of the old back streets haven't changed eg. Artillery Lane and nearly all the old pubs are still existing.
