Three and Out

Today's film review is from Keith Norman, General Secretary of the train drivers' union, ASLEF.

The film looks like a disgusting piece of propaganda dreamt up by the kind of wankers who have a go at train drivers for making them late for work in the morning.

Here's the trailer for the film. Mackenzie Crook's come a long way since The Office, hasn't he?

And any film with Imelda Staunton and Kerry Katona just has to be...

Gawd help us.


  1. If someone makes me late for work, I'm entitled to complain about them.

  2. More like Over and Out thanks!

  3. This film might bomb like "Sex Lives of the Potato Men", at least that's the impression I get. Having said that, Keith Norman should lighten up - he clearly doesn't know all ASLEF members in a personal vein. "Suicide Squads" (the people who are assigned to clear up these unfortunate incidents) use dark humour as a way of dealing with this type of tragedy.

  4. Is Keith any relation to Barry?

    What with a film review by the General Secretary of ASLEF and starring Imelda Staunton and Kerry Katona you should have posted this next Tuesday.

  5. Billy - It seems to be common knowledge on my train that trains are only ever cancelled because the driver couldn't be bothered to get out of bed and is throwing a sickie. We also like to blame the corpse when we're late because of a suicide on the line. We get off the train and give the body a good kicking.

    Romo - Roger.

    Istvanski - I've got an idea for a comedy film. A GP (a Harold Shipman lookalike) offers to kill elderly widows who are mothers of only children in return for a cut of the kids' inheritance. It would be more of a hoot and has a more feasible plot than this piece of shit.

    Kaz - Yes, I think he is. I'd rather have Keith than Jonathan Ross. Wouldn't it have been good to have union leaders presenting the Film review shows in the 70s? I know Len Murray was a fan of Godard and Tom Jackson was really into his Ealing comedies.

  6. 100 tonnes and Vic Feather . Oh, sorry, wrong Jonathan.

    Anyway this train-crash-cinema is bound to hit the buffers or go off the rails.

  7. Sorry Geoff, don't get excited, that previous comment was only me. In a skirt.

  8. Bloody hell Murph, I thought it was Ms Zeta-Jones.

    I see in today's paper the union and a transport users group are asking people to boycott the film. That's assuming anybody will be thinking of going to see it in the first place.

  9. Perhaps the Aslef members outside the cinema should have a look here
