    Pros and Cons living in your country

    Not for independence whatsoever, and I don't know anyone back home who actually supported it. However, now Brexit has happened I'm past caring. Wouldn't surprise me if independence did happen in the next ten years (if possible) cause the majority of Scots did not want Brexit and are still pissed...

    Best/worst/weirdest casting

    Fair enough, just very strange given most people outside of the UK were going 'who the hell is Ewan McGregor?' when he was cast. Can remember it well. And even Scottish people were equally baffled because he was only known for Trainspotting and a few smaller films that hadn't made it out of the...

    Best/worst/weirdest casting

    Eh no? I think he was perfect casting as well. The reason I thought it was unusual is because I'm Scottish and he was known as a local lad around the area I grew up. So to hear a local guy was cast as Obi-Wan Kenobi in the new Star Wars movies was indeed weird. Especially since Ewan was most...

    King Anakin's Throne Room (BEWARE!)

    No we've not seen it yet, sadly. I think it's out here early next month so we'll get it immediately.

    King Anakin's Throne Room (BEWARE!)

    It's got Tom Hardy in it, so my interest in the film is up 400% compared to other superhero films out there :D

    Best/worst/weirdest casting

    Actually I know another weird casting. I was watching The Butler with Forest Whitaker a few weeks ago, plenty of odd cameos like Robin Williams as Dwight D Eisenhower, John Cusack as Nixon, but the weirdest was Alan Rickman as Ronald Reagan.... colour me baffled! :confused:

    King Anakin's Throne Room (BEWARE!)

    I've still not seen it but I want to. My brother enjoyed it, and he and I agree on everything so I'm certain that means I'll enjoy it too. He's my film Sh*t-O-Meter. He saves me seeing things I'm not going to enjoy lol I just wait for his film reviews :D

    Best/worst/weirdest casting

    Yeah real Highlander talk requires translation. I can remember as a kid whenever we would stay around Loch Ness, which was always June-July, and I'd go into shops or pubs and you'd hear the locals talking.... I'd have trouble deciphering if it was English or Gaelic. Normally it was something in...

    Political Correctness and Feminism. Is it progress?

    Well we've spoken about this often. I don't call myself a Feminist mainly because many that I have spoke to tend to be man haters, which I'm not for whatsoever. Also the idea that to exist in a man's world we need to act more aggressive and pushy like men.... Em, isn't that the very opposite of...

    Best/worst/weirdest casting

    lol well I think they let Johnny pretty much take control of the role of Jack Sparrow after the surprising success of the first film. Famously the producer Jerry Bruckheimer tried to have Johnny fired from the film when he saw what he was doing with the character. He thought he was destroying...

    Best/worst/weirdest casting

    I actually got rid of my rolling r's :D When I was about 10 or 11 I heard a video of myself and was mortified by how, well, Scottish I sounded! lol So I sorted it out. And that's why to this day everyone thinks I sound either Irish or American (not to Americans, just to Scots who don't know any...

    Mythology/Legend Thread

    Wonderful thread! My passion is comparative mythology, I've been fascinated by it for years now. Can't get enough. Particularly interested in what you spoke of 'Dreamtime'. I think in western culture we all inherently know the European myths through one form or another, but African, Middle...
