Just watched "The Accountant" film,

Just watched "The Accountant" film, starring Ben Affleck

Didn't find your answer?

I chose this film from the library, more out of interest in the title than anything else - it was actually quite a cool film.

And, get this, the accountancy references were not totally duff either - albeit an American flavour.

What other film features use of home as office calculations, mileage expenses, gross margins, time series analysis, - oh, and quite a high body count!

Well worth the £1.50 I paid the library.

£1.50! Sky store is about £5. I was wondering where this new online streaming service is called 'the library', before the penny dropped and I realised you really do mean the library!

Tip: Purchase an Amazon fire stick and install Kodi and Exodus. Don't forget to install the VPN first!

Yes a great tip if you want to break the law.

In fact why don't you just walk into HMV and take it off the shelf & leave without paying for it? Same thing.

Theft by people who should and could know better disgusts me.

I suspect you also never do 31 in a 30.

Speeding is a serious offence. The speed limits are there for public safety; it's not the same as protecting a film studio's profits.

It only became illegal recently with the introduction of the Digital Economy Act and a EU court ruling overriding a previous court declaring that streaming online content was legal.

The DEA now means you can get up to 10 years in the slammer for watching copyright stuff online.

Do libraries still exist!

I have not been to one for years. With God Google, is there a need to find the time and pop into a library?

I remember mine with pensioners to save on their heating bills and for them to have an afternoon snooze.

Given you have an obsession with technology akin to worship (you even call Google god, which I sincerely hope is joke) , this is not a surprising post.

Many people still find libraries a useful resource. People still like to read physical books and not all reference works are freely available online. Some even use them for internet access (Yes, people without home access exist).

Saw it in the cinema for "free" on my Cineworld card - with the number of times we go every month it works out as <£1 a film.

I really enjoyed this film & also chuckled at the accounting references
