    Four Lions comes out on DVD 30th August might be the funniest film of the year (Toy Story 3 doesn't count).





    Written by Morris and Peep Show duo Jesse Armstrong and Sam Bain, Four Lions is a story about four young Muslim dudes who are determined to blow themselves up in the name of Islam. They’re all incompetent in their own special way, and so are the police, the general public and everyone else who appears in the film. It’s farcical, cynical and funnier than Gordon Brown calling a bigoted woman a “bigoted woman”.

    Fucking nice one! I've been waiting to see this for ages, it looks genius! The few clips I've seen had me laughing my bollocks off.

    edit : Thought I'd throw this clip in to the mix, it's the first one I saw!

    I know it's a double post, and I know I'm not supposed to but wanted to make sure those who wanted to know would notice the post. For all those who've been waiting to see this it's had a release.

    Do it some justice and atleast grab a copy that's DVD res or wait for the BluRay Rips, not the xvid crap.

    It's what 2TB HDD's were made for!

    My telly's only 20" anyway so it don't make much difference! [​IMG] Just finished watching it, what a cracker of a film. Very funny, very smart and also surprisingly touching.

    Yeah, it's an awesome film. I saw it twice at the cinema (once when it came out, and again with a live-by-satellite Q&A hosted by Charlie Brooker), have just downloaded the 720p rip to watch yet again, and will be buying it as soon as I actually have some money. I'm gutted that Chris Morris decided to pull the commentary track(s) from the DVD/BR at the last minute though.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    I just watched it- laughing like a drain pretty much throughout.

    The guy who played Omar was also in a pretty good film called Shifty too.
