  1. And on the seventh day, Ian rested. Use this thread to flag up difficult choices you've had to make and the various pros and cons of ranking films in such an OCD way! What's currently your top film? What's currently your bottom-most film? And what decade have you ranked the most often? Also, why not post your own Flickchart handle on here? It's a given that, in the near future, your list will very much be a work in progress and no-one will seriously think that you regard "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" as the best film of all time. Mine is slothian205.

    Happy Birthday Ian!

    Ta both! In fairness, most everyone got across their messages on Facebook/Twitter.

    Yeah, that was a pretty brutal read. I've not really bothered with the Nerdist network, but there's no way in hell I'm going to start patronising it now.

    Episode 53: Charlize Theron

    Sorry about that, Bev. Very much unintentional on my part - I'll try to be more careful going forwards.

    Help Influence Episode 55!

    Yes, you can help influence not only the film Pandy & I use as the joint review, but the homework we assign each other to plot the range of their career. As announced in Episode 53, our subject will be Rutger Hauer. Pandy & I will take an executive decision on what makes the joint review on Saturday 23rd June so get your ideas in before then! NB) We won't be covering Batman Begins.

  8. Hello everyone, This July - between Sunday 15th July and Sunday 22nd July - we're marking the 35th anniversary of the NES with a full-blown 8 day week dedicated to all things Nintendo. I am directing traffic, and here's the outline: Sunday 15/07/2018 NES/Famicon Monday 16/07/2018 Gameboy (and its successors) Tuesday 17/07/2018 SNES Wednesday 18/07/2018 Nintendo 64 Thursday 19/07/2018 Gamecube Friday 20/07/2018 Nintendo DS (and its successors) Saturday 21/07/2018 Wii/ Wii U Sunday 22/07/2018 Switch So whilst each day will be console-specific, you can pitch in with your favourite game(s), or even claim bragging rights to a franchise and chart each entry per console (Mario & Zelda being the most obvious franchises to be snapped up!). And if there's something Nintendo-related that doesn't fit under a particular console - be it a movie, a cartoon show or one of the lesser known pieces of hardware - stake your claim and I'll find a space for it! Get your proposals in here and I'll give my blessing if it hasn't already been taken by an Earth-2 staffer!

    I think it helps that I've never seen Blade Runner.

    Suggest future actors for the HAA! spotlight

    Ah, so Pandy's life, my life and a Bill Oddie documentary.
  13. This thread is designated to gather up suggestions of actors (gender neutral term for the political correctness win!) to feature on future episodes on HAA! Ideally, I would like suggestions of actors who have tried to many different films so that Pandy & I can examine the dramatic range of the subject, so that rules out Rob Schneider for a start. Also, for the time being, the Brothers Wilson would prefer to limit the scope to actors who were prominent from the 1970s to the present day, as neither of us did "film studies" (we're British) and have only seen so many films that are beyond 40 years old. I'm hoping to address this as I expand my film horizons gradually, but for the meantime, let's cap the suggestions to people active between the 1970s and the present day - I'll allow leeway if the actor was doing films in the 40s/50s/60s right up until the 80s/90s/00s but it very much depends on who said actor is. Actors used: 01: Jim Carrey 02: Jodie Foster 03: Brad Pitt 04: Christian Bale 05: Reese Witherspon 06: Samuel L. Jackson 07: Amy Adams 08: Bob Hoskins 09: Will Smith 10: Whoopi Goldberg 11: Robin Williams 12: Uma Thurman 14: Jack Black 15: Julianne Moore 16: Arnold Schwarzenegger 17: Heath Ledger 18: Winona Ryder 19: Dame Judi Dench 20: Jamie Lee Curtis 21: Sandra Bullock 22: Nicolas Cage 23: Halle Berry 25: Bill Murray 26: Dustin Hoffman 27: Meryl Streep 28: Dame Helen Mirren 29: Audrey Hepburn 30: Sir Michael Caine 31: Max von Sydow 32: Sigourney Weaver 33: Morgan Freeman 34: Dame Maggie Smith 35: Sir Christopher Lee 36: Paul Williams 37: Mike Myers 38: Jennifer Connelly 39: Dame Julie Andrews 40: Denzel Washington 41: Tom Hanks 42: Kirsten Dunst 43: Kate Winslet 44: Burt Reynolds 45: Mel Gibson 46: Nicole Kidman 47: Marilyn Monroe 49: Dan Aykroyd 50: Keanu Reeves 51: Dame Angela Lansbury 52: Michelle Yeoh

    Random movie and tv thoughts

    I think X3 was rushed but it's far from the worst X-Men movie. Or at least, the worst X-Men movie is much, much worse than X3. Everyone knows my answer: Wild Wild West.

    Every Film You've Watched in 2018

    It was always a risk casting the actual guys involved. I mean, good on them and if I were in the same position, I'd have done the same thing (i.e. taking the film deal - I'm probably far too cowardly to actually tackle a suicide bomber), but a filmmaker of Eastwood's ilk should know better.

    Every Film You've Watched in 2018

    According to Wikipedia, The Worlds End - which I've just watched - gets generally 4 out of 5 stars. Even with Rosamund Pike involved and liking everyone else in it, I just don't see it.

    Help Influence Episode 54!

    Yes, you can help influence not only the film Pandy & I use as the joint review, but the homework we assign each other to plot the range of their career. As announced in Episode 52, our subject will be Jackie Chan. Pandy & I will take an executive decision on what makes the joint review on Friday 25th May so get your ideas in before then!
  24. Hopefully you've all had a chance to listen to Episode 1005 and the debut of the Flickchart Forum. Now, to be clear, the idea behind the segment is to have two guests join me per topic, and the guests are to revolve, rather than ALWAYS record with Pandy and Stavros - as fun as that would be. So as for topics, if you have something you'd like to list and discuss on the Forum (as opposed to forums) then let me know! They can either be franchises, such as the MCU, Robin Hood films, Fast & The Furious movies etc, or the filmographies of directors, or the Top 10 films of specific actors, or some other criteria. If you'd like to throw your hat into the ring, then do it here!
