Post of The Month (August)

Meggles is our Post of The Month winner voted by the community for the following post:

"my recent post and a comment from another user has made me realise that self care is so important.

I wanted to start a thread in the Health and Wellbeing section of the boards about self care.

Self care is provided by you, for you

I know a lot of us are struggling at the moment with different aspects of our own lives, and sometimes we get so lost in these we forget to take time for ourselves. This tread is, a Reminder to you to take time out for yourself during the difficult times.

down in the comments I would really love for people to share ideas and tips about self- care. to remind ourselves and others in the community.

My way of self care when i recognise ( or someone recognises i have neglected myself) is:

Take a walk and admire whats around me ( take as long as needed)
treat myself to a bath with a bathbomb and bubbles ( bubbles are important)
make a hot drink and just sit down with a film.

Please feel free to share your ideas!

The Mix have a guide to self-care which you can find here."

    • Room - it was on C4 yesterday evening. The acting from the two main characters is good. However, the beginning is missing - it starts seven years after the protagonist was kidnapped. It doesn't show her being kidnapped, the seven years after that - nor does it show any of her life before she was kidnapped.

      • Logan - It was so emotional! Did not expect that ending at all! I wanted to cry.

            Can you understand why there's no beginning to the film? It felt like the first 20 minutes+ was missing from it. Why start the film 7 y after the protagonist was abducted? There weren't even any flashbacks or explanation. We saw very little of 'Old Nick' - and we don't know what happened to him. The acting is very good, but it's a very incomplete film.

            I Know My First Name is Steven has a similar theme, but is better because it shows the whole story.

            • I watched Trainwreck recently. The early part of the film is very funny. However, the protagonist - a one-night-stand-loving, drunk party girl - has a relationship with a quiet, dull man with whom she has no chemistry. Even if we could believe that she could turn monogamous, there's no way that she would be attracted to him or vice versa - they're not suited to each other at all. She hates serious people and he hates sluts - so why would they want each other? There's also an unnecessary subplot about her father being chronically ill and dying - which is totally out of place in what starts off as a light-hearted sex comedy. His death doesn't serve as any turning point in her life, so it just brings the mood down.

              I've watched many comedy films which start off with loads of humour, then drastically change tone and turn serious. Why do they do that? You wouldn't have an action film which is slow and quiet during the second half - or a horror film with a nice peaceful second half.

              • I'm watching Commando on Film 4 now. It's one of the best action films and has a lot of humour in it.


                • I'm watching Die Hard on Film 4 now. It's very good and is often regarded as the best action film.

                      • Moana!


                        • Rogue One (a star wars story), found it to be well written, with the feel of the first film whilst not seeming like a copy or reproduction at all to me.

                          Which is ironic, since the CGI people reproduced Peter Cushing's and Carrie Fisher's (RIP to them both) faces quite well. Peter Cushing's hair seemed a little off,but I can't really complain about the return of Leia or Tarkin though! And Darth Vader has never been better. Well, badder, but you know what I mean.

                          Anyway, fanboy rant over, I can breathe now 😂

                            • Film4 are showing The Other Woman at 9 and Unfaithful at 11.15 this evening. It's an entertaining double-bill of adultery.
