1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    Thank you.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    'Behaviour

    Do not make inappropriate or offensive posts - including threats, harassment, swearing, prejudice, defamation, deliberate insults or name-calling, other negative remarks about this forum, its moderators and administrators or your fellow members. Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

  5. Postings on Politics, Religion & Controversial Off-Topic Material

    The majority of users do not want to read about these subjects and people have left the forum as a result of it – this is after all an 'Airgun' Forum. It’s all very well to say they don’t have to read it if they don't want to, but as most of us use the ‘New Posts’ button there is no easy way to avoid it.

    All AGF staff members are in favour of people being able to discuss what they want, but we have to draw the line somewhere if it is upsetting other users. We don’t want to read about these topics either.

    IMPORTANT- The discussion of politics and religion is no longer allowed anywhere on the forum (including the Adult section).  The only exception is if it's airgun related - they must be put in the Airgun Related Politics section..

    We will not tolerate bullying or personal attacks, racism or any other offensive 'isms'. we will remove these topics from the forum, we will not give you an area where you can abuse each other. We will not hesitate to ban offenders.

    Can't lie.. I have a huge soft spot for Topgun. Well excluding the volleyball scenes for obvious reasons. :confused:
    I thought Minority Report was a good film too, that's pretty much it though to be fair. Rich Hall sums him up perfectly :D

    Minority report was OK, good idea for a film but it could've been a bit better, I find Tom Cruise films hit & miss, vanilla sky was another aim just couldn't get my head around, it's like it was trying to be weird & obscure on purpose.

    The Potter series are so far fetched as to be ridiculous. I believe in the spells, flying broomsticks and even the minotaurs but a ginger kid with two mates?? c'mon.

    I don't see it as a failure. My Great uncle was awarded a medal for his work as a despatch rider having to avoid nazi patrols to get messages to withdrawing troops and was one of the last to be evacuated. What our country did was pull together a fleet of small craft to rescue thousands of brave men who went on to fight again rather than die or spend their time in a prison camp.
    Some of those men came ashore with little clothing and the community gave clothes to dress them while the skippers of those little ships went back to collect more.
    Hitler mistook this as a weakness and suffered from his misconception. Saving lives is never a failure and should always be seen as a victory.

    I thought the hurt locker was quite good, bit better than jarhead, Bram Stoker's Dracula could've done without Keanu Reeves in it, tried to watch Dracula untold last night but was on too late & I couldn't get into it.

    I agree to a point.

    Although I generally enjoyed the movie and its strong characters.

    It was a slow burner and the ending was too abrupt and a bit disappointing.

    The Cormac Mc Carthy novel was much better.

    Yep, I thought NCFOM was very good up until that ending, which came from nowhere. It’s like the director suddenly remembered a prior appointment.

    Kill Bill 1/2 - everyone was raving about it. While I was deciding when to walk out of it. Dreadful film and found it offensive as it plundered the culture I love. Eventually got round to the 2nd one. Started off better but then went back to being rubbish.

    Gone With The Wind - initally I watched it many years ago and found it bloated and boring. Then last Christmas I just happened across it and couldnt take my eyes away. Funny how age changes your perception.

    All Harry Potter films. We sat through the box set a couple of years back. Could not see what all the fuss was about. Maybe I need children, but I'll never waste my eyesight on them again.

    Saw Top Gun for the first time recentlyish. Thought it was utter rubbish, but then it does star the massive egos of Kilmer and Cruise so probably no more room on the celluloid for a story etc...

    PS - Dunkirk. Interesting thoughts on here about it. It's a novel film though with barely any dialogue - something few directors would even attempt nowadays. You either get it or you don't. No one-upmanship or anything. I've seen plenty of avant-garde cinema and silent films so it was pretty straightforward. Chris Nolan will keep challenging his audiences so it has to be applauded. I agree the John Mills version has a far better story though - more immersive in that respect.


    Just had an idea...

    Pulp Fiction - probably the worst film I've ever had to sit through in my life. My girlfriend at the time said I had to 'stick with it' because 'everyone loves it'.

    I tried three times before I got to the end - I would rather have spent the time sat in the dentist chair having my wisdom teeth removed - with no anaesthesia.

    But it does have an immense soundtrack and dogfight scenes. Even if the "Mig 28" was actually just a little F-5 Tiger. :D
