    Although I really searched this board quite a bit - I didn't find any thread discussing/recommending movies with BHM protagonists in the past 5 (!! :eek:) years.

    So maybe time to start one - after last night my first recommendation would be:

    http://www.festival-cannes.fr/en/ar...4a-1ee4-4a15-bbf0-c2c836b8b56b/year/2015.html

    Valley of Love -

    if you want an arthouse cinema evening watching a really massive Gérard Depardieu literally spend half the movie shirtless with the probably finest collection of full belly shots I've ever seen in anything remotely mainstream.

    The script has some major deficiences, but the camera shots of Death Valley are worthwhile and Depardieu's and Isabelle Huppert's acting is superb.

    I thought Vincent D'Onofrio did an amazing job as Kingpin. He always brings so much intensity to every character he plays.

    And then there's Action Bronson's foodie web series, Fuck That's Delicious.

    The Sopranos may have had the most fat dudes of any TV show I can remember.

    While we're at it Robert Deniro in Raging Bull:

    All discussion of on-screen fatties begins and ends with Orson Welles.

    He's such a quintessential fat-ass that seeing him fit when he was young just feels wrong.

    Yes - Orson Welles and The Sopranos are definitely two of the absolute classic pillars (no pun intended) of on-screen BHM-dom without which any discussion of the issue is complete. Marlon Brando would be another.

    One idea for starting this thread was also to share new findings worthwhile for FFAs, help in discovering hidden treasures, or sharing information about new releases what might be of interest.

    Or frustrations - like why does Pierre in the new BBC adaptation of 'War and Peace' again have to be a round-faced skinny??? :mad:

    Reminds me of a class I took on images of Italian Americans in the cinema back in college. We spent at least a week talking about fat italians in movies and their relationship with food and their mothers. Being the only fat guy spilling out his chair/desk combo in class made that slightly awkward, but interesting none the less. Here is the movie we watched that week. Dom Deluise in Fatso.

    Pervy FFAs may want to skip right to 7 minutes.

    Mille grazie - that's a great movie 'excavation'!
    I'll have to see if I can find it somewhere.

    Naturally, I agree - fruit, with the expection of watermelons, has to be room temperature .... - gotta love verbal food porn ..... :D

    (And totally sounds like a college class I would've attended too!)

    You mentioned Brando, the Godfather had it's share of big guys. I love Clemenza.

    Yes, that disappointed me too, so I've just been following Frock Flicks' takedown of the costuming. (Oh -- you caused me to read the book btw)

    What a great site! Thank you for the tip bayone - :doh: no idea why I as someones who loves movies and costume history never went to look for this!

    I hope you in turn liked War&Peace - admittedly I would never contemplate going to a desert island without it.

    Gotta admit, the first half was a slog, the second half was great (all the plot set-ups finally paid off) -- but I really didn't like the epilogue. I felt as though all the female characters had had their personalities erased and replaced with "jealous sitcom wife" or "subservient doormat." That said, I now have a crazed desire to write coffee-shop AU fic, if only because the French can be the Bonaparte Coffee chain, trying to push into the neighbourhood and oust the local coffee (or maybe tea, because Russian) place. ;) I do agree with having Feelings about Pierre.

    (For a chaser, I read The Master & Margarita, which was awesome and left me wanting to drink vodka and eat snacks with giant talking demonic cats and their colleagues.)

    I was tempted to watch Manhattan after seeing a still with Michael Chernus, but I've been spoiled for his storyline already...

    Since we had the Winnie-the-Pooh & Templeton discussion here in another thread recently - I thought maybe more movie cartoon character references would be okay.

    For the release of the 2015 new digital Peanuts Movie, 20th Century Fox came up with this very neat online gimmick to go with it - the Peanutizer:

    http://www.peanutizeme.com/

    with which you can create an individualized Peanuts character with different accessories.

    Now they've added a Snoopytizer - to doodle with your own personal version of Snoopy.

    To my complete astonishment, the cartoon beagle comes in 3 sizes (very skinny, normal and large).

    Here's the result of my inability to stop from playing around with that toy:

    Verbal food porn is yummy, lol! Makes a weird but awesome combination of hungry and horny (horngry?), for me anyway. And watching fatsos get each other gastronomicly "worked up" discussing their favourite treats is so so hot! Wish I knew of more movie scenes like that. And sign me up for that college class too!

    One of currently most important Hollywood BHMs - though as a director, not an actor - has finally received his due accolade:

    Guillermo del Toro, multiple Oscar winner, was awarded a star on the Hollywood "Walk of Fame".

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowb...llermo-del-Toro-star-Hollywood-Walk-Fame.html

    Unfair as always, the main theme of this article is Lana del Rey's dress - but it offers some nice BHM eye candy shots, too.

    https://variety.com/2019/film/news/...migrants-mexico-lies-walk-of-fame-1203294134/

    On a more serious, and content oriented note, del Toro's acceptance speech.

    For a little more background, also interesting because he speaks about his weight, is this one which is a little older:

    Glad you resurrected this awesome thread of yours, Agouderia!

    Mike & Molly is pretty good for admirers of BHMs and BBWs alike, and anyone in the mood for something light and romantic. It's got just that bit of depth to it that's often lacking in other sitcoms.

    Can we talk about Josh Gad and James Corden? I just watched this skit and they ARE both charming, talented and attractive, no joke.



    Actually it makes me sad that it is supposed to be a joke that they are attractive. Here in the BHM/FFA boards obviously we’re salivating over guys like them, but even in the real world fat guys who are confident attract all sorts of people.

    I've always adored James Corden and I will definitely be watching out for Josh Gad from now on.

    I don't find it sad that it's a comedy sketch. What I noticed was the studied avoidance of the "F", e.g. "We've both got fleshy thumbs." They both know that they're fat, and they both know that they're handsome and attractive. They have the self-confidence to laugh at themselves and I think that it makes them even more attractive. I think that material like this makes more people stop and think that fat people can be beautiful. They advocate superbly for the fat community.
