Money Savers Arms


Last ooorders!… We’re sorry but for now, due to resources, we need to close the Money Savers Arms including Discussion Time.

It’s not easy to write this. We love the forum, but we also have a job to do to protect it, our users and MoneySavingExpert, and at the moment, with all our resources focused on Coronavirus information, and all the team at home, we don’t feel we have the resources to do a good enough job.

For four months, we’ve been struggling to cope with the huge volumes of messages we’ve been getting from Forumites – many of whom are in desperate and dire straits with their finances. The team have been working all hours to try and keep on top of it. At first we thought it’d be a short sharp spike, but it isn’t, it’s continuing, so we have had some difficult choices to make about prioritisation.

Unfortunately in, and likely because of, these stressful times, the Forum team have also been receiving an increasing number of complaints about posts made on the Money Savers Arms and Discussion Time. The team have done what they can to try and walk the tightrope of balancing all the various interests, but for now we need to draw a line under this and temporarily close this Board, so we can keep the key, MoneySaving boards – where people are supporting each other through this crisis - running smoothly.

We know this board is important to you, but as the MSE stance has been forbearance throughout this crisis, now we ask that of you. We’re sorry. Of course you can post on other boards, but we’d ask you to stick to the subjects of those boards, and not use them as a surrogate Money Savers Arms or Discussion Time. And as always please be kind and friendly to each other, especially any newbies.

Thanks
MSE Forum Team

    ive recently watched cowboys & Aliens that was quite good for a new film.

    It hasn't had great reviews , but i'll make my own mind up when I see it soon as it's on it's way to us from Lovefilm.

    I agree that Hotel Rwanda is a great film. Two other good films about Rwanda are Shooting Dogs and Sometimes in April.

    The Swedish Millennium Trilogy films are really good. Haven't seen the US version yet , but looking forward to doing so.

    I'm struggling to think of a good film i've seen recently. Most of the films we watch are instantly forgettable. I liked Source Code though and have just enjoyed watching the 3 Chronicle of Narnia films.

    Oh yeah i've got a liking for Korean films at the moment. Enjoyed I Saw the Devil and The Man from Nowhere.

    I took out a dvd last weekend from the library - mamma mia. It is fabulous.

    don't know how I missed out this musical; or may be because I've avoided meryl streep movies
  • The two I watched this weekend were Real Steel and Source Code and Imust say I really enjoyed them both!

    I watched Real Steel (Rocky with robots) last week with the kids and really enjoyed it.

  • I have just rewatched Tomorrow, When the War Began,

    Seven Australian teenage friends from a small town go on a camping trip to be with nature. During their trip, they see military aircraft fly overhead. What they didn't know was their country was being invaded by another country. Returning home, they discover that they are at war. With no training, they band together to fight the enemy.

    Its the first in a series of films based on some Austrailian school books, Its not bad, worth a look anyway.

    Recently watched 'Hunger' about Bobby Sands....quite harrowing but good. Not for the squeamish.
    Also The Butterfly Effect....interesting and enjoyable.
    Have the DVD of Conviction to watch as soon as I get time, can't wait to watch Senna (friend has the DVD)
    Although the Stieg Larsson films are good, the books are SO much better.......

  • Watched The Town last night. Really good. I was given a 2 month trial with Lovefilm by a colleague. I will be continuing with the subscription once the trial ends. Saves me paying money on DVDs that I only watch once, still in their shrink wrap (may have to watch a couple of these during my 1.5 weeks off work) and the space to keep them all.
