What percentage of the public think that ...
One of my favourite parts of Love Island is when the islanders start finding out how they are being perceived by the public, and how they change or make different coupling choices based on those perceptions. Excited for future episodes of Love Island AU.

Here are some great comments from last week's thread:
I never expected to love Punch-Drunk Love as much as I did. I was a sucker for rom-coms about 5 years ago and binge-watched a shitload of them, even the thrashy ones. Something about those light-hearted rom-coms filled my heart whole in my lonely and boring teenage years. As I grew out of my teenage years, my standard for films grew, and I soon grew to dislike rom-coms because they are cheesy and predictable, and really plain dumb sometimes. Punch-Drunk Love was actually really all that, it was cheesy, predictable and plain dumb at times. It was however, due to this qualities, that I loved this film so much. These qualities were took on in a modern spin and a PTA sort of weirdness, and promises to take audiences on a ride. These film reminded why I loved rom-coms, they are cheesy and predictable yes, but holy hell I had a wonderful time with it. Punch-Drunk Love is probably one of the funniest rom-com out there. The characters were so well-written, the pacing was masterful. Adam Sandler was amazing in his role. I’m sure everyone has ever felt like Barry one time or another. Insecure, unable to control emotions, and a mess all around, but everyone, like Barry, has a good heart in them. I’m sure everyone, like Barry, feels like sometimes we can’t talk about anything and keeps secrets from our friends and relatives, but when we met someone that truly understands us, we pour all our heart, emotions and secrets out to them. Barry has one of the best character development I’ve ever seen in a romantic comedy. Only Paul Thomas Anderson can create such a wonderful little heartwarming film, add his own personal weird spin to it and yet still came out a masterpiece. Heartwarming, adorable, joyful, and amazing. My favourite romantic comedy ever. 5/5
During a drug bust, Judge Dredd (Karl Urban) is shadowed by a mutant rookie with psychic abilities (Olivia Thirlby), they quickly find themselves marked by former hooker turned violent gang boss Ma-Ma (Lena Headey), who’s distributing and manufacturing an illegal drug called Slow-Mo, a hallucinogenic which slows down the brain to 1%. With a production budget of 30-45 million, director Pete Travis wastes none of it on-screen, showcasing a dystopian city governed by violence and fear, all filtered through a grimy colour palate. The slums of Mega City One is where death lives. A cesspit pit of hopelessness and terror. Corrupt judges bargaining with criminals for money. The film isn’t one bit shy when it comes to violence - blood splatters in every direction, hands get blown off and heads explode – all whilst innocent civilians are gunned down in the crossfire. The drug intake scenes are exhibited through glittering slow motion shots that look like something plucked straight from an anime. It’s like Blade Runner / Training Day's brutal, grungy stepbrother.
Watched Blade Runner for the first time. I both can't believe I waited this long to watch this movie but am I also glad I did. I don't think I would have appreciated it nearly as much even a few years ago. Through my teens I just couldn't sit through slower paced movies. If something wasn't a comedy or action movie, I just couldn't get engrossed in it. The visuals of the movie are absolutely breathtaking. 4k version on an OLED TV. For most films I don't think that would require a mentioning but its benifits are really noticeable in Blade Runner and it massively adds to the film. I almost don't believe that this movie is 36 years old. Viewing this movie this long after its release, a lot of its themes are not new to me. They have been done since then. Nothing about the story was surprising to me, however I thought it was well done. I don't feel like I am any new insight into the film other than give my opinion that it is absolutely worth a watch today. I do not feel that this is not a film has been proped up on nostalgic. Will be watching 2049 soonish. Run time on that one is intimidating.
