Seems to be a serious divide there. I'd be surprised if it's anytime soon.

Saw Deepwater Horizon at the weekend there. Pretty solid 3/5 action movie. Wasn't sure if they were gonna go into the politics side of it, which they kind of do a little, but it's more about the fire and explosions.

I doubt it.
Noel not turning up to premieres or getting involved in any promotion for the doc. Liam's twiiter page :lol: and according to him Noel is just telling him to fuck off when asking about a reunion.
He's doing well with his solo gig, definitely doesn't need the money, so I can't see why he'd bother putting himself through the stress of it. Can't see the upside of it for him.

I'd say he'll do it eventually but not any time soon.

Maybe yeah but I can't see any reason why until he can't get gigs with his own outfit or he badly needs the money.

I think he's proud enough of it that he'd do a few big gigs at some stage. Don't think he'd do another album, etc

The Girl on The Train - Story and acting was great in this. not an amazing movie but everything was very well done in it. some very tense scenes and the movie was very quiet. i'm too use to action movies with explosions all the way.
major quibble
they show a scene that pretty much tee's up the answer to the plot. it gave it all away, to me anyway. where they show Megan in the woods having sex and the tree blocks out the guy. since they don't show the guy, it showed me it wasn't going to be the guy we though it was. i knew they would show that scene again but then show the guy. which they did 20 minutes later. :lol:

Downloading The Fourth Phase at the moment. Excited. Would be worth a watch even if you're not into snowboarding. Extreme sports porn with a bit of a documentary feel to it, from the guys who starred in/directed The Art of Flight. Basically the best snowboarders in the world. Think a few people here have said they've seen TAOF anyway.

i've seen interviews on the tour to promote this where they talk about how the guy is such as evil guy. again, you're not supposed to know that until the end so it pretty much gives it up. i had guessed he was the bad guy about half way through

The Art of Flight was great, purely from an aesthetic point of view. That one will probably be even more enjoyable if it's in 4K. Awesome.

I read the book and figured out the ending by the second chapter. If you've seen as many day time made for TV movies as I have, it's so predictable

That Miss Peregrine film is really enjoyable. I was ready to hate it but it's really good. Genuinely scary and disturbing in parts. Also, Eva Green is an absolute dreamboat in it

Watched Jack Reacher last night. Very enjoyable film. Standard issue thriller, but for all the right reasons.

The new one or the first one? I thought the first one was terrible, not even Werner Herzog was able to save it.

We had a light and fluffy weekend watching
Audrey and Daisy - Harrowing stuff. Well worth a watch but it's not a pleasant experience. About a sexual assault cases in the states and the knock effect it had on the girls/town
Amanda Knox - two minutes in and the wife was saying she did it and she should be strung up. I never followed the case at the time but from what was presented there and at the trail it was fairly light on actual evidence to convince me she did it.

watched this last week as well, didnt think she was involved by the end of it. sounded more like dodgy police work than anything

I watched Suicide Squad the other night. It wasn't great but it was better than BVS and the latest X-men.
