Drinking masturbating and farting! Haha. Sounds like a great night in!!


I saw The Lighthouse at the cinema and really enjoyed it. Dark and gloomy, like you say, but I enjoyed the two characters interactions too. The old lighthouse keeper trying to make sure the young un didnít get aspirations above his station, and the young one seemingly just desperate to run the lighthouse and not get left doing all the shitty jobs on his own.

It gave me a bit of a ĎLord of the Fliesí power struggle vibe, but just between the two of them.

Then theres the mental degradation, which I thought was really well illustrated.

Plus all the wanking, farting and drinking!

I watched Pee-Wee's Big Adventure last night for the first time and to say I was mentally worn out by the end is an understatement. It's relentless

I bet though, if I had first seen it back in 1985, aged 8, it'd be one of my favourite films ever, but I didn't and it's not!! An interesting curiousity though...

I look forward to my next viewing of The Lighthouse certainly. Mainly because of my hatred of shitehawks

It was meant to be added as a quote to justin101 Comment,
Referring to how the film got a decent rating, but somehow didnít work out properly and just my comment.

I made the mistake of watching it while being slightly high - (What can I say? I was young and foolish)

It's certainly a film you know you have seen when it's ended!

I wonder if that would have improved The Lighthouse.

Seeing a wee blather about Blue Velvet elsewhere on the forum reminded me Iíve got it lying around somewhere on DVD, but Iíve never gotten around to it. Mrs Funster watched it at uni and had told me its good, but having recently (finally) gotten round to watching the original 2 series of Twi Peaks (and that weird recent monkey interview thing) I have to admit Iím now a bit put off by the David Lynch name

I really donít get the love for Twin Peaks at all. Felt like just a weird soap opera where nothing made sense. Melodramatic. Over acting. Weird, awkward characters. That everyone had their own theme songs that played wherever they had a scene. It was almost like what I imagine The Truman Show would have been like had it been an actual real thing on the tv. Excepting that I do really like the Truman show. Lol.

....Iíll show myself out now

I don't really get Twin Peaks either. I've held on to the boxset with the intention of tackling it again one day but it didn't seem anything special.
