  1. I listened to the album the other day. Fookin' shite.
  2. Could be wrong as I've not seen this in a while, but how about A Christmas Story? Does an adult narrating his childhood count as coming-of-age?
  3. I highly recommend Kings of Summer to anyone. Cracking film. Don't think it was ever properly screened in the UK so it's a bit of a hidden gem. One of my favourite films of all time is a coming of age film, The 400 Blows, if you want to watch something distinctly French. In fact the whole Antoine Doinel series is a highly entertaining arc of boy-into-manhood. Blue Velvet is arguably coming-of-age as well. But in, like, the darkest way imaginable. Another dark one is Heavenly Creatures, which has one of the more grisly murders ever put to film. I wonder if my propensity for darkness explains why I'm a bit... ya know...
  4. I totally intentionally did this week's challenge by watching The Beatles: Eight Days A Week. Not a coincidence at all.
  5. So many choices for this round... I'm sure I'll think of something.
  6. I'd put this in the 'Out of Context' thread but I don't see any reason to be a donator anymore.
  7. Not sure if I've missed the deadline, but I just finished Stand By Me. It's a lovely film. Possibly the second best film I've seen about childhood friendship after The Outsiders. What stood out was while I loved the intimate road journey, several sequences stood out on their own for Rob Reiner's brilliant direction. Highly recommended.
  8. These singles have been mere extensions of Death Magnetic. 21 year old me loved Death Magnetic, 29 year old me finds it boring. By Metallica's standards it's incredibly safe.
  9. The best science-fiction is rooted in reality. While What You Say makes Sense, All I Want is logic - that would Marvellous.
  10. Completely agree.
  11. Agreed. Ken Loach's worst enemy has always been his need to mouth off through his characters about social injustices when it's pretty obvious what he's trying to say in the first place. Are we ever led to believe the DWP's robotic bureaucracy is somehow a good thing? No, so we don't need to be explicity told this as well.
  12. Instant +1. Lucky you.
  13. I finally have an excuse to watch Stand By Me.
  14. I'm listening to Lightning Seeds. I'll take my like now, @MDK.
