    RIP Ennio Morricone

    The greatest has passed away at the age of 91. https://variety.com/2020/film/global/ennio-morricone-oscar-winning-hateful-eight-composer-dies-at-91-1234698707/amp/ Some of his many gems that I loved. RIP the absolute legend.
  2. Absolutely love the confidence of Curtis Jones. Probably one of the biggest reasons why he will succeed. This match was a good example of why Henderson is so necessary for us. Increased the tempo as soon as came on.

    Have You Ever Been Chased By A Cow?

    I have only ever been chased by a dog. I ended up climbing a building's boundary wall. Within minutes he called in reinforcements. I sat there for almost an hour, until a passerby shooed them away. Never been chased by a cow. They are gentle beasts. You pet them on their heads and feed them. They are a good bunch. Now bulls - they are a different breed. They are the ones, you shouldn't mess with. One of my school teachers was tossed to the side by a Bull. My teacher ended up needing multiple surgeries to repair his spine.

    It's one thing for ordinary people to commit such hideous things(which happens everywhere), but something else for journalists to do it while their media companies being proud of it. This is a journalist breaking a temple that was under construction in Pakistan. Now a fatwa has been issued against the temple. And there were people opposing the CAA law which helps minorities escaping religious persecution in Pakistan.

    Banning of Tik Tok was more of a reaction to the border tensions we are having with China. There were 59 Chinese apps that were banned in total. However, the reason that was given was security. We have also extensively cancelled massive infrastructure contracts with China. Already Indian alternatives to Tik Tok like Chingari are gaining popularity. We can laugh at the cringe videos of Tik Tok, but it really gave a voice to the poor people from the villages who weren't as well informed as city folks to use Instagram or Twitter.

    Cricket

    Yep, an Indian starting a cricket thread. No surprises here.
  8. Congrats to my fellow Red bastards . Quietly waiting to see the best trophy lift in action. Some decent graphics floating online. This one caught my eye. Simple but beautiful.

    Last movie you watched?

    @Rush. I sometimes go to YouTube to look at that scene where Niki Lauda impresses his wife by racing that fan's car. Rush is a class movie. @Eco you should check out Senna's documentary. It's made by the guys who worked on the Rush movie. @topic Watched To All the Boys that I've Loved before and it's sequel To all the boys I still love you. I don't get the high ratings. While the first movie is somewhat entertaining with the concept of letters, the second one was strictly alright. Also watched Support your local Sheriff which is a hilarious Western.

    I looked it up after reading from your list. I enjoyed his Thin red line, so will put this on my watch list. On a sidenote, we already know what Tsubs will think about this. You fucking inanimate object .

    Anime

    My exposure to Anime is only restricted to movies most of which belong to Studio Ghibli, and my favourite is Princess Mononoke. Though I have lots of love for rest of their movies. Beyond that I have only watched Akira and loved it. Also, Your Name the 2016 flick was a highly enjoyable romantic, anime flick. I do want to watch Attack on Titan. Have heard good things about it.

    @nudge Tried to restrict one movie per director. So Dr. Strangelove won over 2001 and Clockwork and Goodfellas won over Taxi Driver and Raging Bull. Also one movie from a franchise, so Godfather 2 missed out. Also wanted to fit at least one animated movie in the end. Chose Inside out over Kung Fu panda and Princess Mononoke. I did consider Big Fish (my favourite Burton flick) and The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, but in the end I couldn't fit them. Others to just miss out from my list were Life of Pi, 12 Angry men and Fargo.

    World Train Map

    Delhi wishes it could get to see sea. Also Kolkota WTF. Sounds like a cheap ice drink you get on the roadside stalls. At least they did one thing right. Completely ignored Pakistan and placed Afghanistan (Baghdad) as our neighbours.

    Racism in TV & Film

    The product is eventually hated by the audience. The negativity around it. Baring Captain Marvel almost all movies or shows that went with new found agenda (in story or publicity) have suffered. And when the organisations didn't listen ie Dave Chapelle stand up act, or GTA , etc the product was more successful. Also you don't want to give the stupid mob more power.

    This was my top ten. 1) Dr. Stangelove: Or How I learned to stop worrying and Love the Bomb 2) Blade Runner 2049 3) Godfather 1 4) In Bruges 5) Motorcycle Diaries 6) Goodfellas 7) La Isla Minima  8) The Great Escape 9) Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind 10) Inside Out Looks like only Godfather made it. Nice to see Truman Show on the list. @Pyfish How did Blade Runner 2049 fare? And did Dr Strangelove get love from anyone else? Sending you the tv list.

    Racism in TV & Film

    I am surprised that no one has come after 'Sixteen Candles' yet. Not just white, but white, brown, black etc educated middle class lefties with a half decent 'social media presence'. It's these groups that are overwhelmingly vocal and unnecessarily too eager. As if they are trying to show how remorseful they are. All a fucking act to show online to other equally inept idiots. In reality they don't really care or are bothered to make the real changes. @topic It's sad that corporations are listening to these Muppets, despite evidence that listening to them causes more harm and ignoring them actually helps. Look at the GTA or Netflix when it came to their show Instatiable.

    Last movie you watched?

    Watched In the Line of Fire. A good action thriller with Eastwood and Malkovich. Also finally watched Lars and the Real Girl. Absolutely my kind of movie. Quirky in bits and has the right kind of humor and seriousness. Loved it.

    Coronavirus (COVID-19) Outbreak

    And 3-4 KMs long queues. @topic Cases are increasing here after the partial opening. My floor has been sealed for 14 days after one of my neighbours caught it. No one on my floor is being allowed to step out of the house, apart from throwing their garbage which the authorities come to collect. Funnily on the first day of this floor lock down I gave a 15 minute long lecture to my mum and wife to use the food carefully and ration as much as they could. I get up next day to find them cooking three different types of vegetables.

    @top ten actresses Only two of my actress featured in the eventual top ten: Streep and Hepburn. Surprised to not see Winslet. Where did she end up @Pyfish. Apart from Grace Kelly and Linda Fiorentino. And did anyone else name Monica Belluci? @topic Sent my list of top ten films. Here's an alternative list. And yes, they all have proper plots. One of the films is even based on a TRUE incident. 1) Justine 2 Nothing to Hide (1992) 2)Tarzan X Shame of Jane(1995) 3) Mario Salieri's Arabika (1992) 4) The Taking of Christina (1976) 5) Vista Valley PTA (1981) 6) Private Afternoons of Pamela Mann (1974) 7) Taboo American Style : The Ruthless Beginning (1985) 8) Private Teacher (1983) 9) Mario Salieri's Dracula (1994) 10) Josefine Mutzenbacher - Wie sie wirklich war: 2. Teil (1976) Honorable mentions: Concetta Licata Trilogy, Stupri gallery, Josefine Mutzenbacher 1, Potere, Taboo, etc.

    Last movie you watched?

    Continuing with South Korean movies, and watched The Age of Shadows. An engrossing thriller that could have easily been half an hour shorter. Enjoyed it.

    I have sent my actual list to Pyfish. But if we are doing a list of pornstars, then I can't stay out of it. Mine will include few retro stars. 1) Selen : The greatest Italian ever. Check out her Mario Salieri flicks. Has aged like a fine wine. Can also act. 2) Allie Haze: The cutest pornstar ever. 3) Roxanne Blaze: Tiny, blonde cutie who gives one hell of performance in the movie 'Justine 2 - Nothing to Hide'. Highly recommended. 4) Avy Scott : Natural and loves to swallow. Always. 5) Valentina Nappi : Mental babe this. 6) Dani Daniels : This one is actually a smart one. And an absolute beauty. 7) Leah Gotti: Like Allie Haze, too pretty for porn. 8) Sunny Leone : Have seen her in person. Looks stunning. 9) Monica Roccaforte: Another cutie who frequently featured in Italian (Salieri) flicks. 10) Federica Zarri : A retro actress who was wild just like Valentina Nappi.
