    By now you've probably seen the movie and music threadstarter icons in the Art and Entertainment forum. If not, when you start a new thread either click the movie or the music icon and type the name of the movie, tv show, actor, musician, band, album, etc and fill out the post as you normally would. The site will automatically add content to the site like release dates, a brief overview and official trailers, etc.. Now in the Other Games forums you can click the game icon and fill in the game name and it will auto add release info and trailers about the game. Works with PS, Xbox and Steam games. Example can be seen here https://www.domesticbatterygaming.com/forums/topic/18223-ace-combat-7/ Also, if you have an existing thread you want to add this to, just click edit on the OP and you can add the threadstarter info. I will add a Books version for you book readers soon

    Apart from shops like CEX or getting them cheap on Amazon etc (all dvds for the films chosen are under 5 quid) I can only think of naughty ways like "borrowing" from the internet, that I couldn't possibly endorse or advise

    I've seen Titanic and Rain Man, other than that I don't think I have seen anything on that list. And I'm sure those 2 are without looking, perhaps I am remembering something else I feel @omarcomin71 old right now

    Count me in! Question, Is the intention to nominate movies from the specific category that people may not have seen? Movies we’ve already watched and enjoyed? Or maybe movies we’d like to see? All the above? Edit: for instance I would nominate Unforgiven but I’m sure everyone has seen it. And The Deer Hunter for one some may haven’t seen.

    I'll post my video tonight, I had it all ready to upload my $43.XX run then realized I had 11 shots. SO I need to check my vids to see what my actual best it (probably mid 30's). Every good run I had I either went a bit over time or took a shot to the head by some random and lost the shit on the back of my horse.

    This is probably my final score, $49.50. It was quite frustrating over the weekend that I could not do better then this one where I had 2 wasted bullets. There were so many times I started well with 3 good birds then another 3 different ones, but could not find anything decent to use the last 4 bullets on, so many ravens, turkeys and turtles. Especially annoying was the one I mentioned before, over $60, and that didn't even include any spoonbills so could easily have been more, but it took me just over 10 minutes.

    I was thinking the random draw would be fairer and quicker. Dont want to spend more time voting on what to watch than actually watching the film Also, nice selection of films so far, would be happy watching any of them. And I knew that you would pick the one horror film to win @Con

    This is the set I have settled on: Slow and Steady III: While Dead Eye is active you take a much less damage and headshots do not kill you outright. You cannot run or sprint. Unlocks at rank 24. Winning Streak III: Each consecutive shot on the same target does much more damage than the last. Unlocks at rank 48. Peak Condition III: You inflict a lot more damage if your stamina bar is at least 75% full. Unlocks at rank 14. Never Without One III: Your hat will block one headshot and then fall off. While not wearing a hat you take less damage. Unlocks at rank 46. While Slippery Bastard is OP in CQC, Slow and Steady is by far the best dead eye card IMO. Winning Streak speaks for itself. Peak Condition is great if you like me don't do a whole lot of belly flopping which draws a shitload of stamina. Also, on horseback it's constantly active. Never Without One I don't really think I could live without at this point.

    Wow. My hats off to you all playing this mess of a game. I've just been staying away from it until it's straightened out. Not worth the frustration.

    Predator (1987) - Alien that trophy hunts humans encounters a team of expert soldiers in the Central American jungle. The dialogue, memorable lines, great antagonist, great casting. Killing Zoe (1993) - Retired American bank safe-cracker decides to do one more job for a crazy pal in France. Things go horribly wrong. Visually traumatizing and great little twist. French with English subtitles. Session 9 (2001) - Hazmat removal team is hired to clean asbestos at an abandoned Danvers State insane asylum and something starts taking them out. Great atmosphere, the tapes of the Sessions and how they count down the story adds to the tension. The last line of the film. Filmed in location but sadly in 2001 the state knocked down the hospital and condos have been built there now. Which has always made we want to write Session 10. The Usual Suspects (1995) - Criminal gets caught during a multi-million dollar heist gone wrong and now has to reveal the crime boss that hired him. Great dialogue. Great characters. Great twists. Great storytelling. The Return of the Living Dead (1985) - Group of punk-rockers wait at cemetery for friend when the dead are accidentally awakened and now have to survive the many facets of the dead. This is the first film to have running zombies, talking zombies, brain eating fetish explained, zombies that display intelligence. Great balance of funny moments and horrific moments. Some special effects are outdated but most are excellent for '85. As a kid, this was haunting but I loved it. Toxic Avenger (1984) - Gym janitor ultra-geek is thrown into toxic waste and transforms into a deformed muscle-bound vigilante as he seeks his revenge. It's the first Troma Film i ever watched and I wasn't disappointed. Plenty of gore and gross-out moments...graphic stuff. Both funny and gross, it's no wonder as kid I loved it. No way I should have been watching this stuff when it came out on VHS but I had a way to get around that at the video rental. Wolf Creek (2005) - Hikers on a trip to Wolf Creek Crater Park in Australia have their car broken down and are unaware of a serial-killer terrorizing the area. Now they must survive one of the most intimidating & sadistic slashers of all time. Based on the real Outback Serial Killer. The Intouchables (2011) - A wealthy quadriplegic surprisingly hires an unconventional and inexperienced care-taker from the hood. They develop an amazing friendship that truly benefits both. French film that really got to me. Being four-years removed from being there for my elderly father in law, the caregiving element really hit home. This film is both funny and touching and handles the material superbly. The acting is top-fucking-notch. The Ludovico Einaudi soundtrack is a stroke of absolute brilliance and had me weeping like a fucking child at the end. Scarface (1983) - A man who gives up cocaine and crime to follow his dream of becoming a dishwasher to earn money so he can visit Cuba. No, that's only if you watch it backwards! A Cuban exile arrives in Miami and is put on a path that turns him into a cocaine empire king but with "success" comes enemies, betrayal, and ego. This film is perfectly cast and acted. It is grimy and dark. The action and violent sequences are amazing. The soundtrack has some of my favorite songs of all time. Moon (2009) - Space miner is about to return home after his assignment is complete but his health begins to mysteriously deteriorate which leads him to discover the truth about his situation. Sam Rockwell is a fucking star and he cemented why he is one of my favorites since his role as Wild Bill Wharton in The Green Mile. The reveal in that context is one of the most hauntingly sci-fi things I had ever seen. The Elephant Man (1980) - A doctor discovers a man with congenital disorder working as a sideshow and his compassion drives him to prove to society that everyone is worthy of being treated with dignity. Based on the real life of Joseph Merrick in 19th century London, this film chronicles what his life was like living deformed when at the time, defects were attributed to everything but acts of God. It's tough watching him get mocked and ridiculed. I wanted to murder everyone in the first hour of the film. Come and See (1985) - Young boy hides in forest with resistance when his village is attacked by Nazi forces and his mistake of returning to the village spirals him into a nightmarish survival-mode where there is more despair than hope. Russian film with English subtitles. One of the toughest films I have ever watched. The acting is superb and at times i felt i was watching a documentary. The realism of this film will haunt you for days, especially the church scene. This isn't for the faint of heart. It is brutal and humbling. Network (1976) - A news anchor loses it on live tv and what should have been the end of the studio actually becomes the catalyst for what becomes a dangerous game of ratings greed ultimately leading to murder. The strength of this film is the script. There is so much dialogue to chew on and the social commentary still applies today. The Terminator (1984) - Killing-machine cyborg from future arrives in present and will stop at nothing to hunt down the woman who will give birth to the leader that will save the world from the computers that created said killing-machines. This movie has it all. A great villain, great story (if you can wrap your head around it), great action, and did I mention the villain is one of the scariest things to ever hunt down humans. I love this film because the concept of a robot hunting you down and you not knowing how to stop it, is fucking terrifying. Imagine right now...a fucking Terminator arriving in your town looking for you. googling your phone number, calling you pretending to be mom, arranging to meet you. Forgetyou, if you wouldn't be scared. Slumdog Millionaire (2008) - Orphaned boy is betrayed twice by brother causing him to lose the love if his life. Now an adult. he discovers the girl and his brothers whereabouts and learns she is trapped and devises a plan to get on television to send her a message. Danny Boyle does a magnificent job of crafting a gorgeous looking movie. The soundtrack, the cinematography, the locations, and the child actors all superb and worthy of that Best Picture award. I love trivia so during the "Who Wants To Be a Millionaire" craze, i was up and center. When I heard that this movie had to do with that show, I went to see it not knowing it's a love story at its core and yeah Con loved a girl like that once, and it reminded me that not every relationship gets a happy ending.
