    This Is England '86 is a brand new drama coming to Channel 4 this September (starts tonight on Channel 4, 10pm). It revisits the gang from the hit film "This Is England" three years on. Film trailer (looks good, never seen it, any opinions from those who've seen it?)

    This is England '86
    It's 1986 - the year Chris de Burgh is at number one, Top Gun is filling the cinemas, VHS is trumping Betamax, the World Cup is raging in Mexico and over 3.4 million Brits are unemployed.

    Over-rated pish for the Oi Oi! boy to pass around their fellow chavs and claim it's amazing.

    It was ok, get the feeling this is just going to be an 80s Skins though.

    I hated the film. This looks more like Shameless '86.

    I'll stick up for it.. I loved the film. Not sure how the series will work, but I generally trust Shane Meadows to do something good.

    Uhh... it's completely and utterly the opposite of that in almost every single way.

    Fair enough if you don't like it, but at least get it right :p

    Well, I'll stick it on Sky+ and take a look.

    As I said, I don't mind him disliking it... that's fair enough... but disliking it for completely and utterly ridiculous, made up, reasons is just bonkers! The film isn't like that in any way at all.

    I edited that out as it came across harsh - it's true though. If you read my original comment properly you'd see I wasn't just going "YOU DONT LIKEZ IT YOU STOOPID IDIOT ITS THE BESTEST!!!!". I was pointing out that his reasons for disliking it seem completely flawed.

    InfiniteFury:
    I went to the preview at the BFI last night with the panel discussion.

    When I saw the advert on telly last week I said to the Mrs "Christ, I hope they don't turn it into Skins."

    It's a good enough watch on its own merits but it lacks the subtley of what humour there is in the film and wouldn't have seemed out of place with a laughter soundtrack. Lots of references to Soda Streams, whicker furniture, scooters etc just in case you weren't sure if it was set in the 80s.

    ...

    Oh, on the panel discussion, Shane Meadows was joined by his co-writer whose previous notable contribution to telly was.....Skins.

    Might actually watch this. My decade... not proud of it, but it is mine.

    That's worrying... very worrying :(

    If it was your decade, then why didn't you stand up, shout "this is my decade!" - punch Thatcher in the clunge, and you would have been a Hero.

    Being only six is no excuse.

    You're missing the point, his opinion is what it is. His perception is that it's 'Over-rated pish for the Oi Oi! boy' so that's his opinion on it.

    Calling it over-rated pish is fine... but if he thinks it's for "Oi Oi! boy to pass around their fellow chavs and claim it's amazing" then I question if he's even seen the movie.

    Then don't act like one.

    I hope that somewhere right now an "Oi Oi! boy" is passing it around to his fellow chavs and going "Amazing!"

    If they are, they are probably getting something totally different out of the film than you did filthandthefury. Fucking "Oi Oi! boys"

  • Deleted user 7 September 2010 18:55:45
    So, er, yeah, can we move on lads, seriously? Jim, you didn't like it. Fury, you loved it. Fine.

    Heh, don't worry. I got over internet one upmanship many many moons ago.

    May I recommend http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0113375/ instead?

    (Oi Oi!)

    I tried. Alas was only tall enough to hit her in the nuts... and they are made of iron.

    I wish I hadn't made the thread tbh. I only brought this up because I was on hotmail and I had a verticle banner for "This is England '86" shoved so far down my throat it was poking out of my arse. Which reminds me, I need to a buy an Alienware laptop and some Viagra.
