    Fuck.

    When I was about 15, I started to realise that over most things in the world people get joy from, sports, art, music etc. the thing I loved the most was films. So I basically went on a 3 year binge of watching whatever films I could, a bunch of shitty stuff, middle of the pile stuff and that top level, best of all time stuff. After that time had come to a close I thought I had seen…

    ★★★★★

    You see. How do you describe a moment where your life changes forever. I’ll tell you how. You go to see little women with a mate. You and him both are going just to see what this years best film noms have to offer.

    Das Boot

    ★★★★½

    I walked into a charity shops a few months ago and saw Das Boot for 99p. Bargain, absolute bargain. When I went to go and watch it had two discs and when I started the first disc it said 2:10 mins and I thought that’s odd coz this films only on 2 1/2 hours why would I need a second disc ?? Well I’ll tell you why, because I didn’t buy the film, i bought a subscription to a German…
