One of my favourite films of all time. The battle scenes are remarkable and involve thousands of men reinacting the world famous Battle of Waterloo of 1815. Filmed on location in the former Soviet Union, among two of the leading parts were played by top quality actors, with Rod Steiger as Napoleon and the Duke of Wellington being portrayed by Christopher Plummer. One thing I slightly dislike about the film is that it can feel a bit too Anglocentric at times with a subtle dash of Rule Brittania thrown in for good measure.

It certainly captures the horror of war in a very realistic way, and accurately portrays what must have been a terrifying experience for the soldiers on all sides during the battle. That the Battle of Waterloo was also such a decisive and monumentous event in European and World history also makes the film that little bit more interesting.

Was working on a satellite TV system and it was on one of the free to air movie channels. It has held up well even with the historical inaccuracies.

One of my favourite TV shows of all time and an instant cult classic. The wonderful scenery of America's untamed Wild West, the true to life feel of the town itself and Ian McShane's flawless acting in a role he was born to play makes this series one for the ages. The entire DVD series boxset can be purchased for a pittance. The entire show is available on NOW TV for anybody interested, maybe even get the free trial for the Entertainment ticket and have a gander to see what you think.

I binged this recently and was glad that I was able to move straight from the final episode of the TV show to the movie, which did an impressive job of tying things up.

A more familiar game perhaps - Red Dead Redemption 2. Has anybody played this?
Being a fan of Western games in a market saturated with FPS modernistic games, and having being a fan of the original RDR along with Red Dead Revolver and Call of Juarez.......the news starting a while before the release of Red Dead Redemption 2 had me grinding my teeth in anticipation. The day it was released and the second the gameplay started - the experience was surreal, the graphics for one light years ahead of the original.

I feel I will still be playing this sometime into the next decade. Nothing like the feeling of being a badass Wild West outlaw exploring the magnificent landscapes of the frontier.

Anybody remember this golden oldie from the early SNES days? As hard as N.ails, then it sends you back to repeat the same bloomin game over again to complete.

Still playing this game on the original and mini SNES', one of those rare jewels that never gets old or boring.

And there you have it. After a number of very droll years of Kenny's leadership of the country, he's now about to come out of retirement so as he can get on the RTE gravy train and talk about our old railway networks, the same networks he completely neglected for decades in politics.

It was the same with Gaybo after he got ripped off by his best buddy Russell Murphy, Gay's supposed accountant and family friend. Murphy spent everything Gay had saved and it wasn't until he died that Gaybo found out that he was now broke. So in steps RTE and gives him his 'The Meaning Of Life' show which Gay then uses to foist his militant Catholicism upon the rest of us.

Who in their right mind thought that Enda Kenny had a personality at all? To my eye, the man's about as exciting as a cold cup of tea with a dead fly floating on top. Now he's going to get paid to bore the pants off people all over again. Hope he doesn't let slip and make a racist joke again, once was enough already. The dumb fucker was attending a state dinner in Spain a few years back and decided to tell a n*gger joke to the Spanish president. The table went silent and he was forced to retract the joke and apologise. What kind of thick bastard tells a racist joke at a table full of politicians and other royalty?

So he's now back in the employ of the state, and this time it isn't your tax money paying his inflated wages, it's your TV license that'll set him up for another easy million euros. I wonder will he introduce us to the famous 'Two Pints Man' he met in a bar that one time that never actually happened. Or any of the other bullshit he spoke about which also never fucking happened. Now he'll be reminding us of all these forlorn and abandoned train stations up and down the country which were closed down over the years by him and other fuckers just like him.

I can't wait to be honest, it's bound to be a riveting show: Enda's sexy, husky, musky voice crooning about coal burning steamers and the old cattle truck commuter trains I used to ride from Tara Street to the N.ational Maritime Museum on Haigh Terrace in Dun Laoire for work as the house calligrapher. Freezing cold, all windows open, and plastic seats N.ailed onto the side walls as you rattled and rumbled your way along Dublin's south coast.

I grew up on Landen Road, so we have multiple lines right over our back garden wall, and as a kid I used to spend a lot of time over there. Climbing onto the trains that were in for repairs, shunting, and wheel-tapping. Stealing boxes of King's crisps from the factory and selling them on in the school yard at half the price the shops were selling them for. Of course, now you think me a thief, right? But kids are easily swayed by the never-ending smell of crisps frying in the air, it was only N.atural we took our fair share.

Unlike Enda, who has no need to steal anything from anyone because that would be beneath him. Instead he lines up at the trough for the big pay off from the state, the same state who has already made him a millionaire. And now they want to make him into a television personality. Crazy really, especially when you remember that for the years that he was our Taoiseach, we could NEVER get him on telly to answer questions. He was asked, demanded, begged, pleaded with, and even offered cash payments to do a live one to one interview with any working journalist in RTE. But no, Enda didn't 'do' questions or answers. No, he avoided going on telly rigorously for eight fucking long, miserable, jaded years.

Except now he's back: a new television personality!

On a side note, those of you with skills in making water balloons and pipe bombs might consider a new target over in Montrose, no? Fucking savages have even hired that dumb bint child of coke-head Gerry Ryan's for shows. A loudmouth gobshite whacked out on coke from morning til night and on into a death by overdose and STILL his talentless sprogs get a foot in the door to the trough.

Gas little fucking country alright.

The very man who whipped your back while you were down on your knees is now here to suck up more of your money in return for him indulging himself in his favourite hobby: no - not choo-choos, but state euro cash money. And lots of it. Man, I'm so happy I don't live in Ireland anymore: I think I'd likely lose it and start torching the institutions. And why not? When you've got fuck all then you've got fuck all to lose, right?

You offer no vision for the future.. you just bark about the past (and a lot of it anti-Catholicism)

You can't be happy man. Resentment will eat you up inside.

And btw, I can only understand this course of action taken by @Mowl as his (internal) embarrassment for not realising who I was (like everyone else did)...it should have been no big deal! Everyone knows Mowl is a bit of a dumbass

Anyway, 'Mowl' has stolen my handle, opened a new account on PIsh..with my handle.. and has pasted my words there.

This leaves me with no other option.

I will post a photo, of Mowl, a real photo, with his real N.ame all over Irish political sites and underneath it will say -

Wanted - Dead or Alive

Don't say you didn't ask for it buddy..
