Juliet Naked is no great shakes but is an enjoyable 90 minutes.

Loved the book

I was going to say then it's about the equivalent of the book.

really enjoy nick hornby books...... pleasurable easy reading

No it does not rise to the level of my favorites or great literature but sometimes just want to read something fun

any book based around a musical motif like hi fidelity or Juliet naked would appeal to a boardie because we all know music obsessos

I also think Hornby writes very amusing dialogue....his last one is delicious

Baby Driver.   I don't know why I like this movie, but I do.   And, I am glad that Kevin Spacey is out of movies, because he is horrible.

Valley Uprising, which about the history of climbing at Yosemite, was excellent. (streaming on Netflix)

Mountain, also about climbing, just started streaming on Netflix. On my list to watch. Also Free Solo, about Alex Honnold's climbing of El Capitan without ropes, opens this weekend in theaters.

I'm way too chickenshit and now too fat and old to do any of that, but it's a fascinating movie topic.

Not for the weak-hearted/stomached but I just saw A Prayer Before Dawn about a British guy that gets thrown into a Thai prison and has to fight his way out. It is among the most intense and visceral movies I've ever seen. The depictions and visuals of male bodies are unreal (and please let's not go for the obvious homophobic jokes) and I am in awe of the director being able to set up some of the shots.

Is that a Jean Claude Van Damme flick?

The band have just announced a new film, A HEAD FULL OF DREAMS, which throws the doors wide open on Coldplay's colourful 20 year history. The film will be available to stream exclusively on Amazon Prime Video from Friday, November 16 in the UK, US, Australia and New Zealand, with local language versions available globally soon after. Click here to watch the film's trailer.

The documentary release will be preceded by a special one-night showing of the film in collaboration with Trafalgar Releasing in more than 2,000 cinemas globally, on Wednesday, November 14. Tickets are on sale from Friday, October 19 from coldplay.film.

A HEAD FULL OF DREAMS offers an in-depth and intimate portrait of the band’s spectacular rise from the backrooms of Camden pubs to selling out stadiums across the planet. 

The film is helmed by Mat Whitecross - director of Supersonic, the acclaimed 2016 Oasis documentary - who met the four friends at college in 1996, before they’d even formed the band. From the very first rehearsal in a cramped student bedroom, Mat has been there to capture the music and the relationships on tape.

In conjunction with the launch of A HEAD FULL OF DREAMS on Amazon Prime Video, the band will premiere three live tracks, available to stream only on Amazon Music, beginning Friday, October 26. The tracks are: Stayin’ Alive (Live at Glastonbury) by Coldplay & Barry Gibb, Us Against The World (Live in Leipzig) and Don't Panic (Live in Paris).

I would say they should’ve named it A Head Full Of Milquetoast but Frank Turner probably has already trademarked it.
