Trying to find out what a film was

For years I've been trying to remember a film I caught a bit of as a kid and was too young to watch. I'm pretty sure the opening is a family sitting in a row on a sofa who have been murdered by blunt...

An awful lot of rubbish on this thread about the "context" and how it was meant.

The word in question here has a special status. Just does. Where black people use it about themselves or each other,...

Yes, I have seen the scene you mention from This is England. No, it doesn't make this scene any better or more justified (or illuminate any of what we are talking about, really).

For the third or...

I do take your point but I think last night was the straw that broke the camel's back. Will probably give my Blu-Rays and books away. Probably should have reached this point earlier. Yes, yes, good...

Nope, again - if you catch me in here talking about next week's episode, then I have backtracked, as I stopped watching from last night.

If any character development emerges for Sansa that required her to be raped, then that would be interesting. I don't hold out much hope. Given Cersei was raped for no reason / character development,...

As I just said above, I disagreed with the extent of the male torture, and I disagree with the (gay male) homophobic storyline inflicted on Loras. I also disagree with the Sansa rape storyline. Not a...

Oh come on though, Game of Thrones isn't looking to help any abuse victims here is it. I would be amazed if they consulted with any victims' groups for example (I am not saying they should have, by...

I think Tommen has moved onto other interests than Ser Pounce :o and we haven't seen a direwolf for a bit (even Ghost). I'm probably going to stop watching at this point but could do with a Nymeria...

Be fair, I didn't say "triggering", no need to invoke other online arguments here. We will have to agree to disagree on whether rape is different to general violence and torture.

Nope - I already said I didn't like the Loras and Reek storylines and how they went. They are both men (Balon's opinion of a "diminished" Theon notwithstanding) so as you can see, no dice. No need to...

I bet they don't actually do this though. Sansa will remain pointless and not get any kind of a grip. Reek / Theon will remember who he is and manage to die heroically (at a guess). Lady Stoneheart...

Rape storylines have a responsibility attached that, for example, chopping off someone's penis on TV doesn't have. For what it's worth, I was tempted to quit this show during the Reek torture as it...

You've summed it up for me in the bit in bold. I will see if there is some payoff for this and won't write the show off just yet, but it doesn't feel like it's on the horizon, for some reason.
