Probably just as well, if he were alive today and witnessed the use his computing theory was being put to by the likes of this forum, it would probably be enough for him to top himself (allegedly).
[emoji38] [emoji38] [emoji38] Probably true, but on the brightside doubtless he would be relieved that he is no longer a petty criminal maggot.

You know what puts the great into Great Britain? No me neither. Even the name of the "country" makes me hate the English. Describing GB/UK as a country is just an implicit English notion that the rest of the 2/3 countries are just subservient little non-entities. NI & Wales have little real alternative, D4 can't afford us. but were I a Scot I'd be for independence like a flash, economically ideal time or, as it happens, probably not.
Well it would be a country, if they'd ever got around implementing the Acts of Union in full. However it didn't suit the interests of those in power so we were left, 300 years later, with a half-assed, unconsummated marriage, constitutionally speaking.

Makes you wonder why there's such a rush in the current divorce proceedings.

Denial - film based upon the true story of the libel case involving holocaust denier, David Irving. I enjoyed it - it reminded me a bit of "Spotlight" in that most of the film is about people going about their job. Rachel Weisz is always watchable. A solid 7/10.

Live by Night - yaaaaawn. Tries to be an epic gangster film in the mould of Once Upon A Time In America but misses by a mile. A dull 5/10.

T2 Trainspotting. Only caught up with it over the weekend. Really liked it - the scene in the "King William Club" was genius. 8/10 if you are of the generation for which Trainspotting was a significant film, probably a much lower score if you aren't.

Very loosely, Nine, although I spotted his dog tags in the trailer.
"Lion" is very good, T2 is excellent, and Hidden Figures is brilliant.
It didn't take too long for me to reconcile my republican heritage with the diverse political and religious backgrounds of my teammates. There was no border in the Irish dressing room.

Is that the one with Timothy Spall playing the Ravarand ? I think Spall is really good and if anyone can pull it off, he can, but the trouble is he may have a load of sh!te to work with.

I see than Colin Bateman is doing the screenplay. I've read a couple of his books and didn't think they were that great. Some funny bits can't sustain an entire novel and a screenplay may be the same.

The director hasn't done anything I have seen other than some episodes of The Bill in the 90s and everyone over 40 in British TV and film has worked on that..

Worth seeing then.

Spall has played Churchill and Turner (the artist) recently (as well as ahem, David Irving, a Nazi apologist...)

Who did Ian Og think should play his da? Harrison Ford?
