    The two dots (an umlaut), you can do in Ms Word but pressing Ctrl+Shift+: and then the letter you want to put it on top of.
    Thanks :)

    Yeh good film, i have the dvd! Haven't watched it for a while mind last time I was on a train, forgot the opening scene was a sex one and got some very funny looks from the woman next to me:lol:
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I've seen it.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    what shall we talk about then?
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Can we talk about the first 15 minutes? I started to watch it last night, got to the bit where they were leaving that presidential thing where he spilt a drink on that blokes suit, and the DVD fucked up. Took it out and it was scratched to shit. Brought it back to Blockbusters today, and it turns out that was their only copy. Fuck knows what I'm going to do. I'm away 'til monday now, so if anyone wants to talk about Zatoichi or The Aristocrats, I got them as replacements. I've been meaning to watch this film for ages too. Fuck's sake. :mad: See what they made me do. That's the first time I've ever used the mad smilie.

    It's £6 on Play, and I think amazon would charge a pound for delivery anyway. I'll check in aberystwyth for a copy since I'm there this weekend, if not, I think one of the shops here has a copy for around £7. But yeah, it'll be time for the next film by the time I get to this.

    I watched it last night it was good - not quite as amazing as i was expecting but i'm well up for a discussion!!!
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I found it a bit unbelievable that the woman would go with those two boys even in her circumstances.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Thought the narration style was great, I was hearing it in English after a while - if that makes sense? One random thought - what the hell was that brown bag of shat-for-a-dress that she was wearing in the drunken provacative bar dance?

    Bien Sur - I loved it for the crazy latin american ness of it.

    Was I the only one who thought that neither of them had shagged the others girlfriend irl they were just both making it up.

    Lastly cos clearly i don't have enough of an imagination i'm not sure how far they went in the threesum scene becuase if they just snogged surely its a total over exggeration to not talk to each other any more - mind you they are boys and they thus will do stupid things.

    i thought they were making it up too.
    I dunno, I may have to watch it again. I was a bit shocked by the gay kiss actually. I wasnt expecting that for some reason.

    Do you think that woman was trying to split those boys up or do you think that would have happened anyway?
    Do you think the film had a message?
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I tried to watch it again but was made to give it back to the video shop by the husband.

    I kind of knew the boy on boy kiss was coming up because someone had mentioned it - but I don't necessarily think it was a "gay" kiss it was just a drunken snog - as in like boys don't find it that easy to share emotions with each other and so when they do the emotions often larger than the really are or umm something.

    I don't think she was trying to split them up at all I think she was trying to make herself feel better about her life in general and they just happened to be there and they asked and she said yes. As she said the first time she had sex with either one of them it was just because they happened to be there not because she particually fancied either of them.

    Beyond the the fact that it highlighed that there are massive disparages between rich and poor in mexico there wasnt' much of a message...
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Im struggling to find a message here too, and im also trying to work out why everyone was saying it was so fab.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    because it was thinly disguised porn?

    It was OK but if you want to watch boys snogging i recommend my own private idaho as being a bit better...

    :heart: River phoenix :heart:




    I also got the impression it was the sex scenes in Y mama that people liked rather than the plot.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I'd probably watch it again mind you.........
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Fragility of youth?
    Meaningless of most things when faced with death?
    Theme of nature?
    Relationships - friends/parent-child/man-woman?

    There are loads of interesting themes in this.

  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    LMAO! Bless you all going out to buy it since someone said it was good, hehe.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Right, I'll do nominations for this months tomorrow at about 4. Preferably we should have some different nominations, but you can nominate the same ones again if you want. Same rules apply. Link to imdb plus reviews, and first ten nominated get picked, whatever they are (but pick something we might be able to get a copy of that hasn't been scratched to shit by retard blockbusters customers :grump: ).

    How is that funny? How do you buy movies you haven't heard of if not by recommendation?

    Anyway, theme - Personal code of ethics, how these alter in response to external and internal changes. Will expand later.
