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.

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.

Under-rated/Rubbish films you love

    Following on from the Overrated movies... films you know are rubbish but there is something about them you love, or those films which go under the radar and it seems only you like them or even know about them.

    Dante's Peak. Love this film. Love the explosions. Love the characters. Love the town. Love it all. I can watch this film all day long.

    Dangerous Mission (1954). Bit of a golden oldie this. Shot in 3D and set in the Northern mountains of America its basically about a witness who goes into hiding against the mob. The Mob send their "top hitman" to knock her off. The hero is Victor Mature who wears big trousers. The bad guy is Vincent Price who plays the pantomime villain. The effects are pretty dreadful - forest fires, avalanches etc.. and the climax on the glacia is stupendous.

    Exorcist The Beginning: Needs to be seen along side its companion film. This was supposed to be a prequel to The Exorcist. The director Paul Schrader was sacked with 80% of the film shot and edited. The producers hired Renny "blow it all up" Harlin to redirect this atmospheric spooky tale. So on DVD you can buy both. Schrader's isn't finished - the effects arent 100% complete but it has atmosphere and a decent story. Harlin's version takes the same cast and makes Die Hard Exorcist. Watch them both back to back.

    Demolition Man - doesnt take itself seriously but is now worringly accurate in its portrayal of a certain group of mad lefties. Oh and Sandra Bullock is in it.

    Here we go.

    Iron Eagle. Think TopGun with college kids but even more ridiculous. The story basically goes that our hero's father gets shot down over the Middle East and has been through a fake trial and sentenced to be executed. Our Hero the all American Doug Masters ends up stealing two F-16's with apparently unlimited weaponry and a flight instructor go along with him for the ride. It's cheesy as all hell but its got a really good soundtrack (Queen, Twisted Sister etc) and as bad as the aerial scene's are they're also kind of brilliant at the same time.


    Resident Evil 1 & 2. Pretty much shamed by critics but I found these two pretty good (not sure about the 3rd one). The first one is actually mildly creepy with a bit of ridiculousness while the second one is just nuts.. the good thing about the second one though is the main bad guy... Nemesis is always worth watching, I look like him when I'm showing somebody an air rifle.

    Nightcrawler starring Jake Gyllenhaal from about 3 years ago never got the acclaim it was due IMO

    Trancers with Tim Thomerson - King of the B movies. To be fair it's really a D movie but great fun. It also has a very young Helen Hunt in it. It spawned 3 sequels. Guilty pleasure.:D

    Starship Troopers. Most people just didnt get it :confused:

    And special mention for Sydney Lumet's The Hill; Sean Connery's best performance and a great cast, just a cracking movie which nobody has seen.

    Top Secret. A strange cold war spoof made by the Airplane team. Not many people have heard of it but it was superb in its own weird way

    As a brass musician, hearing Grimethorpe Colliery at their very best is a joy.
    As a pervert, Tara Fitzgerald is breathtaking.
    And as a youngster who can't remember that period of time, it's an insight into a life I just can't imagine.

    Trevor Howerd, brilliant in Cockleshell, and nearly all of his movies, Richard Todd, portrayed Gibson, typically British, we don't have actors like these anymore. Also David Niven, Terry Thomas, Stanley Holloway etc etc etc, I could go on all night.

    The Proposition. 2005 with Ray Winstone and Guy Pearce. It's very rare that I meet anyone who's ever heard of it even though it got great reviews. It's a western set in 1880s Australia. Probably my favorite western. The violence is not your typical Hollywood BS. It's actual disgusting and upsetting....like real life. Very well done movie all around.

    'Somewhere in Time' 1980, with Christopher Reeve and Jane Seymour. A young author (Reeve) is obsessed with an Edwardian photo of an actress (Seymour) and uses self-hypnosis to travel back in time to meet her. Absolute hokum but just a lovely film. I can't explain it any better really.

    Some great movies here.

    Split Second - I think this has been released uncut finally too as the BBFC werent too happy with it. Very quotable film too.
    Nightcrawler - quite agree. Draws you in very slowly and is completely immersive.
    The Proposition - very taut outback film this. With a terrific head exploding scene. You're never too sure which way its going to go next.
    The Hill - agree, Connery's finest performance.

    Some others which I rate highly... but are actually really good.

    Hell Drivers - think of a British actor from the 50s, chances are he's in this drama about lorry drivers. Brilliant.
    Open Range - underrated Kevin Costner western. Nicely patient with characters and has a fabulous gunfight at the end.
