    No: his parents were twats for calling him "Raif". He grew up with it, so I don't think you can blame him for that. Of course, he may be a twat anyway but not because of his name. As I don't know him, I can't make this judgement and I don't think that, rationally, you can either. If you want to brandish your prejudice against all "upper class" people with silly names, that, of course, is your privilege.

    Travellerman Aye lad, I knew you had it in you

    Well, personally I thoroughly enjoy watching Ralph Nathaniel Twisletone-Wykeham-Fiennes on the big screen :D

    Schindlers List, Sunshine, The Constant Gardener, The End of the Affair etc... I wish there were more actors I found as captivating as he.

    Oh yeah, her too, she's cute and clever, just the way I like 'em :D. Cate Blanchett is a 'good watch' too :).

    Last films seen: High School Musical 3 - not captivating at all but the grandchildren enjoyed it - and Confessions of a Shopaholic, a surprisingly enjoyable romp. Isla Fisher is very watchable :)

    Go see Ken Loach's Looking For Eric. You don't have to like football - or Eric Cantona, and is a lovely little film.

    Withnail

    Sunday Express quote :

    "Superstar Johnny Depp has played some oddball roles in his time including Willie Wonka, Edward Scissorhands and Sweeney Todd, but there's one more role he would love to recreate : the manic student played by Richard E Grant in the cult masterpiece Withnail And I. "Its my favourite film" Depp told me at the London premier of his new film Public Enemies. "I know the script by heart and I still fall off the couch when I see it. I'm always quoting from it If I ever need a tonic that's what I put on my DVD - works every time!" "
