I'm shocked channel 5 have aired a film which doesn't include Jean Claude Van Dam or Steven Segal don't say I'm the only person who's noticed this?

That is unfair, they sometimes break up the nonstop diet of Van Dam/Segal films with documentaries about the Sex industry or the Nazis.

I have hidden all the sharp and/or under ripe implements in the house.

Agreed Comp but there's always a movie clip during the adverts 'tomorrow's film at 9. VAN DAM/ SEGAL take on an army of blah blah blah' grin

Showgirls is on quite a lot too.

Featuring my favourite lines of film dialogue:

"You've got great tits"

"i like having great tits"

Ingmar Bergman must be shitting himself.

Compo and that seen in which Kyle MacLachlan looks like he was fucking a fish in the swimming pool, how totally unsexy was that scene.

ComposHat Mon 25-Feb-13 01:30:56

uggggh yes. I now want to wash my mind out!

I would be shocked if it was on cbeebies but channel 5? They show an awful lot of shite so 'SAW 100:the one at the end of a long and gory day' fits in nicelygrin

Channel 5 have gone upmarket now, remember when they showed all those softcore pornos, not that i ever watched them hmm

ComposHat Mon 25-Feb-13 01:39:40

oh yes the Red Shoe Diaries!

The internet giving ready access to grot probably did for the softcore porn films.

GregBishopsBottomBitch Mon 25-Feb-13 01:42:03

Infact, Channel 5 had alot of smut on.

ScarletLady02 Mon 25-Feb-13 07:50:27

Ooh yes GregBishopsBottomBithc - thousands of "Erotic Thrillers" with Shannon Tweed in them grin

What gets me is that Channel four (or Film4) haven't shown Saw 5 or 6 yet- so we're out of sync with the (very shallow) storyline!
For instance- the people in the support group are from Saw 5/6-

Not that you're missing much, mind!

mrsjay Mon 25-Feb-13 12:44:21

why are you surprised at them being aired it is a gore/horror film on late it was in the cinema and on DVd so why not on telly <shrug> I hate saw but i dont see why they shouldnt show it,

GregBishopsBottomBitch Mon 25-Feb-13 12:45:30

I watched the first Saw, realised it was shit, didnt bother with the rest. Im ashamed to admit that i just keep watching everything Paranormal Activity that comes out.

badtasteflump Mon 25-Feb-13 12:47:21

YABU. It's after the watershed & all that...

It's also a crap film but so are most of the ones on channel 5 smile

mrsjay Mon 25-Feb-13 12:49:47

Im ashamed to admit that i just keep watching everything Paranormal Activity that comes out.

are we not on paranormal activity 10 or something grin ch5 show sex shows disguised as 'educational and informative' saw is a nothing, ere im old enough to remember the red triangle on channel 4 blush

GregBishopsBottomBitch Mon 25-Feb-13 13:08:57

Number 5 will be out in October, MrsJay, im kinda willing on to scare the shit out of me, coz im a wimp, but they just dont manage it.

Stangirl Mon 25-Feb-13 13:12:02

The first one is brilliant. I also enjoyed the others but then I love that kind of thing.

The first one though is clever and well made the sequels are not.

I loved the SAW films until I got to the 5th or 6th one where the detective disappeared in some glass container or something at the end. It got boring. I still don't know who was carrying out the final games.

SAW is better than Human Centipede IMHO.

GregBishopsBottomBitch Mon 25-Feb-13 13:55:23

There is one film i've heard of but never seen called Serbian Film, apparently its meant to be absolutely disgusting, my friend used to work at blockbuster, when the customer brought the DVD back, horrified, she snapped the disc.

BlueSkySunnyDay Mon 25-Feb-13 13:58:19

meh! I dont like horror, I dont watch it.

Not my place to say what channels show or other people should watch!

SPBInDisguise Mon 25-Feb-13 13:58:56

I read the wikipeedia entry for that, it is disgusting and has stayed with me since. I wish I hadn't, though in a way I'm glad as Dh brought home a load of films he'd borrowed from a colleague and I could tell him a tiny bit about it to stop him watching it. Good on her for snappping it. I actually question the motives of the person/people who wrote it Tbh. It is sick. And I've seen saw and quite a lot of gory horror.

GregBishopsBottomBitch Mon 25-Feb-13 14:01:32

SPB I also read the wiki entry, it nearly made me sick, you'd have to have a strong stomach to watch that. And a weird imagination to actually make something like that.

what kind of twat gets a serbian film out? jesus, shit for brains! read the back cover

GregBishopsBottomBitch Mon 25-Feb-13 17:22:07

No idea, but my friend was assistant manager, she hated having disgusting shit like that in her shop.
