Threads (Barry Hines, 1984) ...well fcuk me, grimmest most depressing and harrowing shit i've ever seen, 48 hours later and it still wrecks my head. If ever there is a serious threat of nuclear war on this scale I'm going to shoot myself in the head first, because it'd be much worse to survive it!

I think that was the point. I know that was what my folks took away from it when it was shown on the telly back then. I still remember it. After seeing Threads, we all reckoned we’d walk outside to try to be killed by the blast. Have you seen the Protect & Survive films which used to be shown? They were all about how to survive the blast and the first couple of weeks. It’s a crazy world now but we should never forget it was also a crazy world then.

These are really real government information films. It's amazing what we become normalised to.

Cannot wait for this, Beyond the black rainbow was a masterpiece. Trailer for Mandy looks incredible

Sicario 2: Shite. It got completely lost in itself and couldnt pick one storyline to stick with. Phoned in performances all round. Should have left the first one as a standalone film.

My thoughts exactly. Plot wise it was complete bollocks. Some decent violence but overall a total letdown compounded by how good the first film was.

I thought the first one was quite poor so doubt I'll even bother with the second one. Just absolutely riddled with ridiculous stereotypes and yer wan Blunt was atrocious in it.

Exactly. Never got the love fest for the first one. The first 20 mins were decent then it just descended into bollocks. Made it to the end but only just.

Rewatching the Nightmare on Elm Street films.

1 and 3 are still the best.

2 is fucking boring.

The rest are fun but forgettable.

I bought the boxset a while back, I think I stopped after the third one. Agree that 1 & 3 are the best. Have you seen the documentary about them, Never Sleep Again I think it's called? Very good.

Yes, it's excellent, although it's funny when the screenwriter for the 2nd one admitted he'd been lying about there being no gay themes in the film. A blind man could have spotted them!

watched 'Calibre' on Netflix last night, great wee Scottish movie; very well shot and directed and got right under the skin. Herself and myself were on tenderhooks through most of it, grim as fuck it is.

I've never watched Love/Hate because I had enough of shouting skangers when I lived in Dublin, but he was decent in the Charlie Haughey programme a couple of years back. The only decent thing about it, actually - given how 'theatrical' and melodramatic it was.

Had never seen The Lost Boys until last night..good craic of a movie. I don´t buy into the whole 80´s nostalgia thing but one thing is for certain, plenty of the movies back then were just very creative and great craic in general. None of the modern irony/cynicism that seems to infect so many modern movies.
