Yes what really struck me is when the commentator makes his devilshorns, everything starting to turn out for the better for James Hunt. As if he sold his soul to the devil for succes. Which he did in someway or another i guess. But maybe i missed that reference

It's all very subtle and double layered but very obvious when you are in on it


But think about it, someone is making this movie, hires actors etc. And at some point the director is asking you to do a certain gesture with your fingers but inconspicuously or so.. Make the devil horns..

It is true the world is run by symbols and signs

The signs and symbols speak directly to the subconscious and linger there as the information is not consciously processed

I used to think people were consciously making the triple 6 hand sign or the one eyed sign, but when I saw normal people I knew with no knowledge of the occult making these signs, I knew it was just an outward manifestation of the unconscious

You think a lot of it is like a pavlov reaction? Like when a camera is pointing on you, people starting to make these signs?

i think it's part of the status quo for this generation after us. We knew the world more or less without this blatant symbolism and signing. I think the term is generation Z but i'm talking about the kids who where born after 2000. They don't know better and kind of accept these symbols and signs as part of there surroundings. Although i notice that a lot of these kids are more "woke" about conspiracy's, false flags and symbolism then i thouht

Yes ofcourse, thats the whole point. Acting in 80s wasn't that great in action movies but you didn't care because often the action would be great.

I really liked kung fury, the way they mocked that overstyle 80's way of movies and if you don't take it too serious you can have good laugh also.

Quarantaine movie tip

Elite Squad: The Enemy Within / Tropa de Elite 2




Excellent movie that shows how the bottom of society is connected to white colar crimes and how these dynamics work

Loved it and seen in it twice already

Quote:After a string of highly dissimilar dramas and docus, helmer/co-writer Jose Padilha (“Bus 174,” “Garapa”) revisits the material of Brazilian B.O. smash “Elite Squad” and gives it a new spin in “Elite Squad: The Enemy Within.” Pic tries to inoculate itself against charges of championing right-wing, law-and-order sympathies (levied against first pic) by having hero Nascimento go after dirty cops and government officials rather than drug dealers. Calculated, cynical and the biggest Brazilian hit ever with 11 million admissions, “Enemy” will struggle to find overseas auds after Sundance and Berlin fests.

you can find it on Netflix

On the same wavelength as The enemy within...

Absolutely one of the best shows i've ever seen with a mindbending finale after a 7 season spiral

The Shield


All hail The Shield - the scuzzy forgotten classic of TV’s golden age
Often unfairly overlooked in best-of lists, this drama about corrupt cops hurls you into the thick of the action for seven pulsating seasons – and now, finally, you can stream the lot

You would never know it from its muted publicity, but Channel 4 is broadcasting one of the best shows ever created. All4 has just begun streaming all seven seasons of The Shield, the critically lionised cop drama that ran from 2002 to 2008 on the then-little-known basic cable channel FX.

Right from its pulsating first episode, The Shield drags you by the scruff of the neck and hurls you into the thick of the action with the Strike Team. This four-man crew of corrupt cops is led by detective Vic Mackey (Michael Chiklis), a character as compelling as any from the prestige TV era. The show’s creator, Shawn Ryan, took inspiration from the real-life Rampart scandal of the 90s. “There were these cops who were running roughshod over this poor ethnic neighbourhood and yet they were effectively stopping a lot of crime. It was an interesting ethical question.”

The show places the viewer at the heart of that ethical question. Extensive use of handheld cameras and Steadicam gives the series a documentary feel and a sense that you are looking over the shoulder of the Strike Team, almost complicit with them, creating a rare intimacy. It feels as if you’re being let in on a grimy, sleazy secret – which, ultimately, you are.

It isn’t as if Mackey is the first dicey cop to bend a few rules to get the job done, but his game is on a whole other level. He makes Dirty Harry look like Barney Miller. As Baltimore PD on The Wire spent five years losing the war on drugs, the Strike Team flipped the script by cutting out their own piece of the pie. Mackey’s crew plant, steal and sell drugs and murder rival dealers as drug barons look on aghast. It’s hard to make a dishonest living when the cops are more crooked than you.

Predictably enough, the higher-ups are on to Mackey. Very early on, would-be nemesis Captain David Aceveda says of him: “[He’s] not a cop. He’s Al Capone with a badge.” Knowing you have a wrong ’un in the ranks and proving it are two different things, however. Mackey is ferociously intelligent, utterly ruthless and terrifyingly brave. Watching him keep one step ahead of Aceveda, Internal Affairs and drug lords is one of the joys of the show.



He is, after all, our protagonist. There is no one like Line of Duty’s Steve Arnott, Ted Hastings or Kate Fleming at the heart of this show. Mackey is all we have. That you end up sympathising, even identifying with him is testament to Ryan’s deft characterisation and Chiklis’s magnificent performance. For all his flaws, Mackey sincerely loves his wife and autistic son and has a vulnerability and wit that makes it hard to hate him even when you know he’s indefensible.

FX took a risk investing in original scripted drama, but it paid off handsomely. In the show’s first year, Chiklis won the first acting Emmy for a basic cable drama. Previously known as a dumping ground for kids’ TV, classic movies and TV repeats, basic cable now had an entirely new business model. Other basic cable channels took note, notably AMC, which followed the FX template to produce Mad Men and Breaking Bad, which made their own history.

What usually happens with a great show that runs for this length is a gradual waning of its powers as the series arc runs its course and the major players become distracted by other projects. If things get really bad, you wind up doing a Dexter, writing off your entire legacy with a clown car ending. The Shield, however, broke new ground once again with a stunning seventh season – arguably its best. The finale, Family Meeting, is regarded by many critics as one of the best in TV history. The show went out as it had entered – utterly uncompromising, confounding expectations, bold and mercurial to the last. If you talk about the golden age of TV without mentioning The Shield, you’re doing it wrong.





Just Brutal
