It is funny that that bear is called Pooh Bear isn’t it

Can I hijack this thread into ‘names that have been around for ages and are ridiculous but you don’t really think about it like that too much’

Winnie the Pooh
Young Boys (football team)

I’m sure there are others.

Did you see that recent film “Christopher Robin”?

I (love/am slightly horrified at the abuse of power) that the whole series is banned in China purely because he has a passing resemblance to President Xi and people started to take the piss.

Just posting so that ant can ask me if I have seen the film Christopher Robin even though he knows I have.

RIP

You will definitely cry when you see it. I have seen the film “Christopher Robin” and I thought it was quite sweet.

Have you seen the recent film “Hotel Transylvania 3”?

was pooh short for something? i always assumed it was an old fashioned nick name that has only relatively recently become funny… but i’ve never heard of anything / anyone else being called pooh

epimer please don’t say wee legs

I haven’t seen Christopher Robin, I have seen HT3 - it was really bad.

Fucking dire isn’t it.

should have seen the meg instead, that was great

No but I have seen 1&2 and they are pretty shit.

I rewatched Padders 2 on Sunday and it is still wonderful.

However I am mainly watching 2 of the 4 Alvin and the Chipmunk films on loop (Squeakquel and Chipwrecked) and to cement my nomination for Dad od the Year 2018 even listened to the Chipwrecked soundtrack in the car on Saturday.

I have an (adult) colleague who stands by the fact that the first two CGI Alvin and the Chipmunk films “are good movies”

Some of it was just baffling. There’s the bit where the girl takes a photo underwater and notices the captain’s feet in the corner of the photo swimming away, and you think “well that must come into play later on”, and it just doesn’t.

I’m informed by my brother that the first two films were better.

What is his issue with Road Chip and Chipwrecked? I am mainly on the Switch when they are on but can speak along to large sections. It has also been a real introduction to modern pop music for me (I whip my tail back and forth).

Have you seen Paddington 2. That has a much more ‘crying scene’. I have a heart of stone but I felt myself going. Probably the most touching scene in cinema history.
