    Parasite is on the list, watched Ginger Snaps yesterday.

    Special effects a bit hammy, but the tale of two sisters trying to keep it together as highschool outcasts when one is bitten by a werewolf works for me.

    The drama element is maybe a bit better than the horror.

    More horror movies with similar themes: Carrie and Raw (Grave) (super ending line)

    Maybe I can relate a bit more to some things as a woman, but maybe you have some female lead / female themes movies you love? (There seem to be more men posting here)

    Indeed.

    What I find interesting, and that is of course media messaging, is a that brexit "deal" is the end of it.

    Not really, only remain is. But somehow barely anyone mentions "hey, we can can A50 and blame it on a bad ale hangover" and never speak of it again by order of parliament.

    The arguing will continue anyway, but then at least we won't have to worry about chlorine chicken, job losses, the UK losing influence..

    I still doubt it'll go full Troubles.

    But unfortunately for some actors a few more deaths in the fundaments of the UK / the Quest for unification don't matter.

    I'll be shutting bricks if I were living in some border towns... :/

    NI was slowly only on the way to ROI anyway.

    This will intensify efforts, however, there is still no agreement on dealing with Trouble victims, still sectarianism and ROI is not yet ready.

    Earliest I expect any border poll is 10 years...or more. ROI won't walk into a shitty badly prepared referendum with no plan. That'd be Brexit ;)

    Not really, NI is slowly going down as no decisions can be made on legacy issues / health / planning permission for big projects...

    Things are not good.

    That problem applies to any Brexit, you don't know what the ones after you will do unless it is all very carefully legislated for.

    I don't expect Labour to be that sneaky though. They may expect such trickery from the Conservatives and be prepared for it though.

    Not sure that LibDems/SNP/Labour will get it through parliament (cos the Brexit ones will point out that's going to win Remain and the Screaming of the One True Brexiters can be heard from space) so I am not counting on it.

    Pfffffffffff...... citizenship + marriage is a hell of a lot of money to spend for one vote. But....ask not what you can do for your country, ask what you can do for the country that gave you the finger. Wait, wait... :p
