Hey

I was thinking what if we try a thread where we recommend other things if you like certain things (any subject doesn't have to be music). I will start with:

If you like the band Arcade Fire, try listening to the band The War on Drugs.

    What sort of recommendations?

    Hi @April2018mom, anything you can think of, just post it here.

    If you like intense (and a bit scary) films, try “a quiet place”

    Considering there’s barely a handful of works spoken in the whole film it’s soooo intense.

    If you like the TV series Line of Duty, try Chicago P.D, it is more gritty with better character development than other CSI/NCSI american shows. 
  • Hart86Hart86 Member Posts: 394 Pioneering
    Ooh I really enjoyed line of duty, where can I find Chicago PD?
  • M_AnthonyM_Anthony Member, Scope Volunteer Posts: 309 Pioneering
    @Hart86 I have been watching it on Amazon Prime, I think it was on 5USA at some point as well.

    Hi @M Anthony, 
                              Brilliant idea, I will have a go if I may please. If you like true stories based on personal experiences during an historic period try the film 'Unbroken' with Jack O'Connell and directed by Angelina Jolie. A truly inspiring story! Thank you.

    I like to think I am doing my bit for the `war` effort. Making masks for local hospices.

    :@WestHam06 Thanks I do like TV/film based true stories, will have a look Unbroken at some point this weekend.

    Hi @M Anthony, 
                               Brilliant, please let me know your thoughts if you do manage to watch it. Also, tonight on ITV at 9pm there is a series starting called Quiz. It is based on the true story of a contestant on the quiz show Who Wants To Be A Millionaire who is accused of cheating. I am not familiar with the story but it looks good so I think I will watch it. Thank you.

    If you like Ed Sheeran then try The Dunwell's. :)

    @WestHam06

    Hi, sorry it took so long! I watched Unbroken and I enjoyed it! I am going to check out the book as well.

    If you love dancing, I recommend Strictly or Dancing on Ice! 
  • chiariedschiarieds Member Posts: 7,953 Disability Gamechanger
    If you like true WW11 films, try 'The Railway Man' (2013) with Colin Firth, which you've all probably seen, or 'The Zookeeper's Wife' (2017) set in Warsaw during the occupation.  For WW11 dramas try 'Black Book' (2006) & 'Stalingrad' (1993) both based on true events.
    Thank you @WestHam06, I shall look for 'Unbroken.'
  • M_AnthonyM_Anthony Member, Scope Volunteer Posts: 309 Pioneering
    Another good WWII film which I can't believe I forgot to mention is The Thin Red Line, it is a epic film that is set in the pacific fighting the Japanese.
  • WestHam06WestHam06 Member, Scope Volunteer Posts: 1,261 Pioneering
    Hi @Adrian_Scope
                                    How are you? Quiz was brilliant in my opinion. It explored both sides of the story and I still can't decide if the gentleman and his accomplices who were accused of cheating actually did cheat? I think that I may actual have to watch the real version to decide for sure. Great programme, good acting- Michael Sheen made a brilliant Chris Tarrant, I would definitely recommend watching it if you would like too. Thank you. 
  • WestHam06WestHam06 Member, Scope Volunteer Posts: 1,261 Pioneering
    Hi @M Anthony, 
                             No worries I'm pleased that you were able to watch it and enjoyed it. I think it is a fantastic film and Jack O'Connell is brilliant in it. I haven't actually read the book so I may have to look into this as well. I am still trying to find Apocalypse Now as I don't have Netflix or anything like that so I think I may have to look to buy it on DVD. Another WW2 film that I watched at the cinema was 'Midway' which is based on the true story of the Battle of Midway. If you enjoyed Unbroken you may well enjoy Midway too. Thank you.

    I was exactly the same!  After seeing the original show, and all the media at the time, I've believed they did it for the last 20 years...yet after watching Quiz I really don't know any more!! :o

    If you like car SOS on Channel 4, try Fantomworks on Quest. :)

    Hi @chiarieds
                           How are you? The film 'The Railway Man' in 2013 with Colin Firth was a fantastic film. Another humbling film to watch. I haven't seen the other film that you mentioned, please may I ask what it is about? If you do manage to find Unbroken, please let me know your thoughts on it. Thank you.

    If you like a detective shows on general, try Bosch, a well made show about a Los Angles Detective. 
  • chiariedschiarieds Member Posts: 7,953 Disability Gamechanger
    Hi @WestHam06 - The Zookeeper's Wife is based on her diaries. She & her husband owned the Warsaw Zoo at the time of the German occupation. It's also about the Warsaw Ghetto.
    Hi @M_Anthony - is Bosch, Hieronymous Bosch the LAPD of Michael Connelly's books? I certainly enjoyed reading those.
  • M_AnthonyM_Anthony Member, Scope Volunteer Posts: 309 Pioneering
    Hi @chiarieds it is indeed based on the books, I am sure you would enjoy the adaption.
  • WestHam06WestHam06 Member, Scope Volunteer Posts: 1,261 Pioneering
    Hi @OverlyAnxious
                                     How are you? Thank you for the response. I have now watched the real episode and I think I would probably sway to believing that they were guilty. On watching the real episode, I think his wife acts oddly throughout and there does seem to be coughing at 'convenient' times. Also, have you heard the part where a distinct 'no' can be heard from the audience as he is answering one of the questions. The only thing I would say regarding this is that I am surprised Chris Tarrant  or any-body else doesn't appear to hear it.  I think ITV told the story from a mutual point of view which is interesting. All in all I would not like to say 100% either way but I would sway towards guilty. Thank you.

    Hi @chiarieds
                            Thank you for sharing this, it sounds like a really good watch, I will definitely look into it. Thank you.

    Thanks @WestHam06, I think I'm going to give it a try, if I can wrangle the TV remote long enough :D.

    Hi @Adrian_Scope
                                   Hope you are able to wrangle the remote long enough, definitely worth a watch. Please let me know if you are successful :) as it would be great to hear your opinion on it. Also, have you watched the real episode? Thank you.

    Haven't had a chance to watch it yet @WestHam06, but I'll get there one day! I think I watched a documentary that included footage of the real episode with the volume of the coughing increased many years ago. It wasn't very discreet if I remember rightly. :smiley:
