I donít see a film thread on the front page. Seeing as Iíve been watching more this last wee while, thought Iíd start a thread for sharing recent watches, whether the films are new releases, old classics and everything in between.
Iíll kick off with ĎA star is borní which I watched on Amazon...

I've been looking forward to this for years.
Loved all 3 original movies but fear i am going to dissapointed if the short trailers are anything to go by.
It looks like its just a reboot of the first film.
Seen this on a few forums, usually a laugh, apologies if it's already been done on here.
Post the first word that comes into your head after reading the previous post.
I'll start it off.
Iím on holiday in turkey and thereís a guy that goes around in roller skates taking orders for drinks and handing out ice lollies. I could easygo and order this myself, but it makes me happy when the guy comes round in his roller skates.
What are the little things in life that make you happy.
Is anyone on here good at chess? And how do you get better?
I used to play with my grandad when I was a kid, I used to think he was a sort of Bonnyrigg grand master at it. When I beat him I celebrated like David Gray in 2016. Unfortunately as i got older, and proper chess players were handing...

Amarone in George Street was the venue for my niece's graduation dinner. I wasn't overly impressed, then again I never really expected to be if I'm honest. Lows were;
Nine out of the ten mains being served together, the tenth person was told "we haven't forgot you,it's just not ready yet" It...
This is a game I got from another forum.
I start by saying something
say:What is life
And then the next poster makes an acroynym out of last word of my sentence in response
say:Life is for elephants (but hopefully better:greengrin)
You plan more sprouts than spuds for the Sunday roast.
always had a soft spot for, I guess what you would call educational(?), jokes. Jokes to do with maths and the likes.
best two I've heard recently
My dad once told me i had a lot of potential, right before he pushed me off the balcony.
(not so much a joke, but I like it)
I thought I'd start a thread for our favourite short comedy sketches, new or old, that bring a smile to your face.
I'm gonna get the ball rolling with one that might bring more of a grimace to your face than a smile, but anyway....
The origin of the sound of the Bee Gees
I was wondering if there was any old techno music fans amongst us. I spent a huge part of the 90s in clubs and all nighters like rezerection. If so give us some of your favourite tunes. Iíll start.
not my favourite song, but one I just remembered.
Anybody noticed a bigger drop in fuel consumption than the 1 or 2% that has been mentioned? I've just used my second tank and have averaged 3.6% less mpg than my previous. Same routine journeys as before.
Having always been an avid reader, one of the glaring omissions from my reading experiences has been The Bible. Though it's been the cornerstone of Western civilization for two thousand years and is the biggest selling book in history, I had so far managed to avoid it. We had a Bible in the house...
I've gone a wee while without listening to much in the way of new music, but there's been a spate of album releases I've wanted to check out lately for one reason or another and I've been pleasantly surprised.

I moved house this week, the house I've moved to is all electric.
I had trouble getting the heating to come on but that was resolved by changing the batteries in the timer thingy.
Thing is I/we can't find out how to get the hot water working.
We have a Fusion boiler, a danfoss thermostat...
Plenty threads on new music and what people are listening to now, but what was the last album (old or new) that everyone bought.
The last one I bought was a first press of the Small Faces self titled second album on Immediate records. Bizarrely it appeared in a search for punk vinyl on eBay and...
I was reminiscing with my brother about things we remember from when we were really young and the strangest was, when were 3 and 5 y/o respectively, sitting in my Gran's back garden and having a Snail Race.
We had cousins visiting from Chicago, who I think would have been 4 and 6 y/o, and the...
Weíve got a few musical threads on this forum, but wanted to get your input on songs that, whether it was the first time you ever heard them or still to this day left you thinking ďwow!Ē so not necessarily brilliant songs, but stunning ones.
(Reason for this thread, and why it sprung to mind is...

Anyone installed it yet? I'd normally wait until the early teething problems are out the way before switching something like this, but I have an old but still very decent laptop that I no longer use that I'm going to update to see what it's like.
Been using this a reasonable amount recently; if you're not aware it's an app where supermarkets, grocers, coffee shops and restaurants sell off the stuff they'd throw out at the end of the day and you can buy a bag of it for anything from £2-£4 on average. Sometimes you get a really good bag,...
Has anyone seen this yet?
Watched it tonight and enjoyed it but not sure why. I donít think itís what I expected.
Had a discussion with a mate about this.we couldn't decide between Freddie Mercury or Jim Morrison. Any others you'd pick ?
Apologies if not correct forum but a wee question I hope someone more clued up than myself can answer

Moving on from mince & tatties, another Scottish Culinary delight to harden your arteries is Stovies. I've not got a go to recipe for stovies and have used various different ones that I found on-line, unfortunately none of them have lived up to my expectations.
How do you cook stovies?
I absolutely love music from the 70s some absolute classics came from that decade, but the thing I love the most about that decade is the way they didnít care that the lyrics didnít always fit with the soundtrack, they just made it fit by shortening or elongating the lyrics to suit the soundtrack....
Worth a thread of its own and probably more of a national dish than the actual national dish and everybody probably cooks theirs differently.
How do you cook yours?

Wifeís going to York with a few pals at the start of October and is looking for recommendations on decent places for a meal, also drinks/cocktails. Has already booked something called Pairings I believe for the Friday.

I've been patiently waiting for a rescue dog to come up over the past few years (not trying too hard but when something really catches my eye/tugs my heart strings putting in interest. For a variety of reasons no luck yet). Ive a massive garden, live in between the sea & forrests for walks & work...
Was talking to my dad earlier tonight and the subject somehow turned to memories of unexpected and shocking deaths of celebrities we each remember. Being born in the late 1970s, the only death I can think of which was truly shocking at the time was Princess Diana in 1997. I vividly remember it...
