    What films have you watched this week

    Ripley & Jonesy were the feminine & feline conquerors of the irascible Alien because the blokes were either inadequate, luckless or just unfortunate. A strapping sub-text to one of the best films ever made.

    Exceptional value audio: new/used (but not DIY*)

    The MF V90 DAC is exceptional at its price. Graham Slee's nice-but-utilitarian looking phono stages are exceptionally good too. The NAD 3020, Dual CS505 & AR 18S speakers, in their time, were also very good - & maybe even exceptional.

    At 10 years old we were a bit too young to be taken to see this but it certainly rammed home the intended message. The charge sequence in particular is superbly done but the film really laces into the arrogance & complacency of the powerful. The notes on the video box called the film a 'savage lampoon' - which it is. Trevor Howard's performance was particularly good, he played the self-promoting bully superbly - a really nasty c*nt.

    WANTED: Hifi Rack in NE England or North Yorks

    Hello creamegg, I have a Clearlight Audio Aspekt 3 shelf rack with cherry legs in the loft. Condition will need rechecking. I'll be back in Darlington in the next few weeks if this is of any interest.

    Classic Rock , Rock Music

    Coverdale & 'Led Wallet' together - an unexpected pairing but a good album. Ex-Purple Hughes & Iommi made some good stuff too, but Gillan's album with Sabbath wasn't a great success.

    We were taken to see this on a school trip to the cinema as 10 year old nippers - more as education than entertainment.... Have an old VHS which still gets played. Great film.

    Cricket thread

    Well done England thumping the world no.1 rated test team. Woakes, Jimmy Anderson, Broad & Bairstow should take a bow, but the top order batters are still unreliable. Hopefully Anderson can maintain his world class bowling for a few seasons more.

    One of the Foo Fighters' best.
