  • WELCOME THRILLHOU
PROBABLE SPOILER

Is it true that the character meets an aged John Lennon played by Robert Carlyle?

If so:

Cold Turkey Sandwich
Imagine Loads of Sandwiches

Yes.  Uncredited cameo.


Also, Oasis (as in the band) has been wiped from history as well (among other things, like Coca Cola), but none of that gets too much of a look-in.

Nope. When I read that the pay-off was, '...and nobody remembers Harry Potter, either!', I considered getting out the old service revolver and whisky decanter and retiring to the conservatory.

Finally saw it for free. It's awful. Curtis is obviously too old to write coherently any more, it was like a beginner's attempt to do the Curtis "group of friends" thing. The lead guy sucks, hes just such a mournful confused sad sack all the way, and joy or fun (the horrible horribo recording studio wank) is so contrived and childish it doesn't stick. So we get to hear the Beatles great songs, but played and sung in a shitty amateur way, but we get to hear Ed Shitrens shit in full professional fidelity? Anyway, more importantly, it's just so goddamn slow, the pacing is awful. Who cares about relationship drivel? You know my name, look up the number. Plus the film hangs on the idea that Ed Shiteeran is the greatest songwriter of the age, and he knows it, and he can only be bested by the Fabs finest. That's the least believable part.

The recording studio tweefest was where I checked out of watching the dodgy cam version I found when it was out in the cinema. Then I fastforwarded to the John Lennon bit and then I laughed and then, weirdly, I got goosebumps when he sang "Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da" to a class of schoolkids.

I'm looking forward to seeing multiple copies of this DS clogging up charity shops in January. I'm going to buy them all and then burn them in a massive bin and post the resulting plastic mess to Richard Curtis.

 Coldplay exist but Oasis don’t? Pepsi exists but Coke doesn’t? Absolute wall to wall bollocks.

Would be an interesting idea if he actually thought it through. The entirety of popular culture would probably be completely different. But to just delete the keystone in the arch and then act as if everything is the same is just feeble.

They could have at least made it so that Tab Clear was the main drink in America or something hilarious.
