SPOILERS INNIT





Yeah, it's class, it's a cunts redemption story for me. He plays a complete fucking idiot brilliantly, he even chances the way he walks, he walks like a racist knuckle dragging idiot. But then he does the small details well too. It's ace. I thought he was the main character rather than Frances Mcdormand tbh. But she's great as well. Tough fucking uncompromising times them, you have to fight. But despite being polar opposites they develop a strong bond. Class tbf.

He's been criminally underrated for years - brilliant in most things I've seen him in (The Green Mile, Moon, Seven Psychopaths, Choke to name a few)

Shiit he's in the Green Mile. Aye, Moon is brilliant, absolutely brilliant. You're right he's a great actor, it can't be disputed, to the point where I'd seek out his films to watch like I would De Niro.

Which out of Choke or Psychopaths should I watch? Not seen either

Well, "Seven Psychopaths" was written and directed by Martin McDonagh who did "In Bruges" and has a cracking cast.

"Choke" is adapted from a book by Chuck Palahniuk who wrote "Fight Club", so it's messed up - but Rockwell's great in it.

The missus has never seen "The Wire" so we've been chaining that recently

Best TV show I've seen to date, much better than "The Sopranos" imo (as that's what usually starts the debate).

1. The Wire
2. Breaking Bad
3. Lost (controversial choice, but I fucking loved that show - first time I'd ever gotten truly engrossed in a long running TV series)

There's a 10-part documentary by Ken Burns on The Vietnam War. It was on the BBC a few months ago (although they took bits out for some reason).

Thank me later.
