What are you watching right now?

Like the thread about music, seen any good movie lately? Got a new favorite show? Post it here!

I just fell in love with the movie The Boondock Saints. Such a good movie.

Boondock Saints is awesome, very underrated movie.

I'm watching the new series of Dexter, ever so good as usual.
Big Bang Theory, obviously, best sitcom ever, and keeps getting better.
Glee, guilty pleasure, but it works for me
And CW as usual, still good quality stuff IMO.

Watched Iron Man 2 the other day, good but not as good as the first.

I just saw Men who Stare at Goats yesterday... and umm... wow, this sure as hell isn't what I expected. Actually I can't really say WHAT I was expecting. Just spur of the moment.



Not sure what to say about it exactly. It has Ewan Mcgregor and Jedi References. That's about all the plot spoiler I'm gonna give you. It's pretty funny, and left me saying "WTF?!" quite a bit. Otherwise I'm speechless. If you have nothing better to do, then watch it I guess.

I found it while flicking through Netflix. Though I must admit, it's very good. I recommend it.

I'm very low on TV series at the moment. I'm only watching "Mad Men" and "The Clone Wars".

@Darth Vada: Police Academy is among the best comedy movie series of my childhood. Classic.

$#*! My Dad Says; Bill Shatner is about the only thing this show has going for it, and I'm sure it won't last beyond November sweeps, but I'm enjoying it while it lasts nonetheless.

Two and a Half Men; the show is rapidly approaching the shark, I think, but it's still good for a laugh.

Big Bang Theory; I honestly thought this would be a flop, but I was pleasantly surprised. Every week seems to be funnier than the last, and I can watch episodes I've seen a dozen times already and still laugh like a maniac every time.

The fiancée and I picked up the Mummy sequels last night as well. Neither of us have seen the third movie yet, and we weren't ever going to for any more than the $5 we paid for it.

I'm also working on assembling a collection of all the Classic Doctor Who storyarchs. I've got everything from January 1970 to March 1984 now. Great stuff, the lot of it.

I've been obsessively watching the Swedish television programme Wallander, inspired by the novels of Henning Mankell, the first series of which is being repeated on BBC4 on Saturday nights here in the UK. Unfortunately, the DVDs are unbelievably expensive.

Watching Caprica and the fifth season of Dexter. I saw an episode of Haven on SyFy and I wasn't that impressed. The same goes for Warehouse 13. Eureka, on the other hand is a good occasional time-killer.

None of the new series I'm interested in, but some of the current ones are amazing: Supernatural is a blast, Chuck has its moments and The Big Bang Theory is hilarious. Fringe takes top spot, though. What an amazing show this has become.

The Big Bang Theory is the only sitcom with a laugh track that I've ever genuinely laughed along with. Chuck and The Office are quite good at the moment. Smallville (still a proud supporter ) pulled off a surprisingly impressive season last year and, despite one average and one horrible episode, is off to a good start this year.

I also recently got hooked on Arrested Development and Firefly, both of which were outstanding. I thought it was interesting that both were prematurely cancelled by the same network.

I recently saw a few movies: Iron Man 2, Robin Hood (The 2010 Russell Crowe one), and The Pianist.

I enjoyed Iron Man 2. I thought that the action was better than the first movie, but as a whole, imo it was the same as the last one. One thing i noticed about it is a repetition of plot: Iron Man suit design. Guy steals suit design, builds equally powerful suit/weapon(s), fight ensues, Iron Man wins, kisses Pepper Potts.

The latest Robin Hood movie was quite good, imo. Ive actually never really read or known the Robin Hood legend (I know, i know.. :P), so this was actually kind of an introduction for me. Overall, it was fantastic. (Ridley Scott ftw) But a fault i found, (and i dont know if this was because of the TV i watched it on, or the movie itself,) is that a lot of the dialogue was hard to hear. Like they mumbled everything. As a result, i missed a few of the lines.

The Pianist was fantastic. It won 3 Academy Awards, 4 nominations, and a BAFTA, and fully deserves it, imo. Especially for Best Actor.



mfw I read the Revan novel

it is not a cry of joy.

I've arrived from watching "The Town". What a great movie that was.

Also finished yesterday the 4th season of "Mad Men". Can't wait for the 5th one.

Did anyone catch the Starz miniseries The Pillars of the Earth over the summer? I've recently managed to see the last few episodes, and I must say it was very well done. Tony Curran especially was remarkable.

I'm halfway through the series on Channel 4 at the moment, and although I missed the first episode, I'm really liking it. The cast is brilliant, and I especially like Ian McShane's scheming Bishop (not surprising, really - McShane takes to bad guys with ease).

I'm going to have to get hold of the books at some point.

Watched RoboGeisha yesterday, from the makers of Machine Girl. It started out great, but eventually it started to suck and devolved into a wasteful pseudo-remake of Machine Girl.

Boondock Saints is a fantastic movie! It definitely ranks up there in my favorites.

Two TV shows that I discovered in the last couple of months: Arrested Development and Dead Like Me. The latter is kind of dark, but they are both pretty hilarious.

Just saw Black Swan... it was beautiful. Natalie Portman is going to win the Academy Award.

In other words, also just had a re-watch of the whole Star Wars saga.

I really haven't seen all that many horror movies, though, seeing as I'm not a fan of the genre. So don't take my opinion all that seriously. It's really a horror-noobs opinion. And it may have been a build up till the last 30 seconds but I really have yet to watch any other movie to frighten me more than that so I'm sticking with it. It would be nice of you to recommend a few good ones.

Tron was a great movie. Visually, it looked spectacular. The story was pretty good (although it was a stretch at some parts). The actors were perfect (although I don't think Jeff Bridges was acting ) The soundtrack, by Daft Punk, was superb.

Go see it in 3D if you get the chance because it looked amazing.
