I too do find the Sparrow gang quite disconcerting but I saw many bad ninja films growing up in the 70's and 80's and that has put me off them for life.

I do see your point, but am just too jaded by American Ninja 994 to be prepared to fight for their cause.

There are no good ninja films because you can't see a ninja so how can you know what they do to be able to make up a film. Mr Barathorn marked absent for Logic 101.

Knightley's chin = Epic fail.

Nope. And no amount of sad Jack Sparrow wannabes that show up every halloween will ever convince me otherwise.


Then on this we will agree to disagree no?

Your wrong btw.


How can you say I'm wrong when you haven't examined my stance?

Vikings ftw. All the drinking, whoring and fighting, none of the dandyish frippery, and all the shields you can eat. Plus when they finally die, beautiful women take them to a massive pub until the end of time, at which point they get to fight in a gigantic battle.

I now see what 'floats your [long]boat'.

I appreciate this appreciation.

My logic is fine, however if you cannot see the plethora of BAD ninja films available I would question your logic.

Knightley, while fairly attractive, does nor do for me personally what Diaz and Friel do.

NB: Or more importantly, my lovely wife.

King Arthur: It could grip it by the husk!
1st soldier with a keen interest in birds: It's not a question of where he grips it! It's a simple question of weight ratios! A five ounce bird could not carry a one pound coconut.
King Arthur: Well, it doesn't matter. Will you go and tell your master that Arthur from the Court of Camelot is here?
1st soldier with a keen interest in birds: Listen. In order to maintain air-speed velocity, a swallow needs to beat its wings forty-three times every second, right?
King Arthur: Please!

Precisely, and a Parrot is substantially larger than an unladen swallow.

Especially if the Parrot is called Tim.

What is you favorite color?
Better to be known in a small guild, rather than unknown in a large guild.

Oh great, more Monty Python quotes. I'm pretty sure every UK student except me was given the script of that film with all the classic lines underlined so they could quote them until they ceased being funny.

It's been a while since I left, but I still can't enjoy Life of Brian or the Holy Grail. :(

Luckily [or not as its poodoo] as you still have the meaning of life.

Everyone should be able to enjoy Monty Python irrespective of students quoting it.

How do you stand on Blackadder Ulushnar?

I'm on a Red Dwarf binge atm.

Then I'll probably move on to Fawlty Towers. Then Black Adder ... Then back to MP.

I really liked Meaning of Life. Possibly because I haven't had a million people ruin it for me. But the music and some of the sketches were excellent.

I do genuinely love Monty Python, but if I hear one more smug prick go on about farting in my general direction, well I'd better not be carrying a blunt object.

I loved it. The first series was ok, but two and three were the main ones for me. I am one of the few people who seemed to love "...Goes Forth" as well, even if it by that point it's fallen into the same trap as most sitcoms, repeating the same jokes in more and more ludicrous settings for less and less mirth. I had a lump in my throat for the last few minutes of it though.

Indeed.

I always joked I would put a brick in a sock and smack Aly Morrision around the face with it if I met him for the crimes against good miniature making he performed in the early 80's.

Having met the bloke, he is a nice fella. I still wanted to sock him though.
