    Controversial MJ Documentary Leaving Neverland [GENERAL DISCUSSION THREAD]

    As a Finn myself, I find it appalling that a public broadcasting company that gets a large chunk of its funding from regular taxpayers would broadcast a mockumentary with no basis in facts whatsoever. You could perhaps expect this from a TV station like Frii, Hero, Channel 5 or Fox even, but for...

    The Bad Tour Wembley concert vs the concerts in Dangerous Tour and HIStory Tour

    I feel like I've got to defend the HIStory world tour too even if it pales in comparison to the Bad and Dangerous tours. I only saw Michael perform live once, and that was during the second leg of the HIStory tour. As my 12-year-old self stood in the audience staring at Michael dancing, I...

    How many languages do you speak?

    Finnish, English, French, Swedish and German so that's five languages. My German is kind of rusty but I understand it fairly well. I can read Norwegian but it takes a lot longer than reading something in Swedish.

    Harry Potter Appreciation Thread!

    A Snape fan indeed, ever since the chapter "Snape's Worst Memory" in Order of the Phoenix. :D It's definitely worth seeing the film more than once as you catch little things that you might have missed in the first viewing. For example, I couldn't remember much anything about the Prince's Tale...

    The Harry Potter Ask Game!

    Harry Potter- Tell about a scar on your body. A: I have a scar on my knee that I got at the age of 10 when I was in the woods with my parents picking mushrooms. I hate mushrooms so naturally I wanted to go home as soon as we got there and when were walking out of the woods, I tripped on a tree...

    Favourite Film Soundtrack

    I don't listeb to a lot of soundtracks but recently I've been listening to the soundtrack of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows p. 2 by Alexandre Desplat. I also like his other soundtracks like The King's Speech, Fantastic Mr. Fox and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows p. 1. Others...

    Harry Potter Appreciation Thread!

    I saw the film at a midnight showing last week on Wednesday in 3D and it was honestly one of the best movie experiences I've ever had. The theatre was full of HP fans and I even spotted one girl with a T-shirt with the words "Always" on it. :D There was cheering and applause in the...

    Those “Crazy Michael Jackson Fans:” Maybe we should listen?

    Wow. It's like this person had entered my mind and read my thoughts during my grieving process. Great article and very well written. :)

    Movie cliches that p**s you off

    I second that. Most comic sidekicks are not funny but hugely annoying instead. Most of them seem to serve no purpose whatsoever, other than maybe trying to make the film seem more contemporary by telling stupid jokes. :doh: One of my favorite scenes involving a so-called comic sidekick was in...

    Who is your favourite actor?

    Alan Rickman, definitely. :D He's so good that I had seen three or four films with Rickman in them without realising that the same person played all my favourite characters in those films. Martin Freeman. He's been on Hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy, Love actually and Sherlock, the BBC...

    Dreams about MJ! (Merged)

    I hardly ever remember my dreams but this time I did. I don't think I've had any dreams about Michael in quite a while, so I was quite surprised this morning when I woke up to realize that he had played a big role in my dream. Must be because it's June once again *sigh*. What I remember from...

    Who do you think is the most epic and evil villain in history of cinema?

    I was considering putting Frollo in my reply as well but I figured you'd probably do it more justice than I ever could. :D Frollo's an excellent villain and I was surprised that the execs at Disney gave the writers and directors in charge of the project as much freedom as they did. My jaw almost...

    Harry Potter Appreciation Thread!

    :D The exact same thing happened to me about ten years ago when my mum bought Prisoner of Azkaban for me. I told her I didn't want to read it because I wasn't interested in fantasy, but I couldn't have been more wrong about the book. I'm re-reading the series once again while waiting for the...

    Who do you think is the most epic and evil villain in history of cinema?

    Darth Vader's a good choice, his lines are really epic. :) Most Disney villains are pretty epic, IMO. Here are a few: Chernabog from the Disney film Fantasia (1940). This part of the film scared me to bits as a child. Maleficent from the Sleeping Beauty. My favorite of all Disney...
