What we watching? – Mudspike at the movies

I also disliked Rings of Power. Although I sense that my distaste was for entirely different reasons. And as for “whiskey oscar…”, in what respect? There was no ‘Defund the Dwarves’ or other political statements. Tolkien on the other hand presented us with a constant moral play where all who used power over their lessers, including Frodo himself, eventually met an unhappy end.

Lol’d at ‘defund the dwarves’ :joy:

That’s fine if you can’t see it, you don’t have to :slightly_smiling_face:

yeah, how about y’all delete the whole exchange, bury it and decide not to go there with one another no more. This is a flight simulation board, and we all love those, don’t we?


Can’t you just block each other then? Rather then subjecting us all to petty squabbles that really have no place on mudspike?

Its absolutely fine if you don’t like each other, but if you continue like this, its going to have a knock on effect for the rest of the forum. Personal attacks have no excuses and people will start being afraid to post if thats the case.

I really disagree with the whole premise of an open feud on here. This is supposed to be a civil and safe place for everyone to enjoy our hobbies and this pretty much goes against the whole idea of what we have been enjoying for the last few years.

Please just pack it in. Its not welcome, wanted or tolerated. Its gone on long enough. You’ve both said your piece. Now do the right thing and block each other as @JediMaster has done or just stop.


I totally agree with @Victork2!
Why is it so hard to accept that your opinions and views diverge? That’s a perfectly normal occurence in this world.

@JediMaster and @Elby, please disengage. Many of us love your posts here and value your participation. But for the love of all things holy, agree to disagree. Stop your bickering.

Awesome! The part in the tunnels was shot here in Tromsø, in what used to be a submarine base. They had a nasty accident in there too… :wink:

EDIT: I’m glad Chickie is still alive to see his own movie. :slight_smile:


Well I Gotta see this one :upside_down_face: :face_with_monocle:

Steve McQueen and Robert Wagner
The War Lover IMDb page: The War Lover (1962) - IMDb

Buzz Rickson (Steve McQueen) is a dare-devil World War II bomber pilot with a death wish. Failing at everything not involving flying, Rickson lives for the most dangerous missions. His crew lives with this aspect of his personality only because they know he always brings them back alive.

Yesterday my wife and I watched ‘50 Shades Darker’.

Surprisingly we liked it better than the first. It was still hilariously tame, but the people behaved a bit less creepy.

King Kong (1976)

Spoiler detail


In the penultimate scene where Kong is going to be revealed to the citizens of New York he is hidden under an object shaped like a gas pump of that era. Lol, The price per gallon on that gas pump was 64.9/10 cents.

The Twin Towers had only been completed 5 years prior to this movie being released.



Those Magnificent Men in Their Flying Machines (free with Ads)

This extraordinary comic version of the historic 1910 London-to-Paris air race features the greatest aviators from around the world. They all come together when a stuffy, but very rich, newspaper publisher decides to sponsor an airplane race across the English Channel. Convinced it will give his newspaper worldwide publicity, the publisher offers 10,000 pounds to the winner. The escapades between the American, British, French, German, Italian and Japanese teams result in the most daring and hilarious in-flight acrobatic stunts ever caught on film. But the film’s greatest triumph is the amazing re-creation of the vintage airplanes which did the actual flying.


Mr. Baseball

This Tom Selleck movie works for me on more than one level. Redford had his fantasy baseball movie with The Natural, Costner had his with For the Love of the game, and Bernie Mac had his with Mr 3000.

To me every one of them falls into the Feel Good movie genre and are worth at least one viewing. I do not have a regular schedule where they are a must watch but I have seen all of them multiple times over the years.
