Not sure how much interest there would be to something like this but I thought maybe we could have a thread discussing Movies and TV. What you're watching, any recommendations (where to find them), favorite movie/tv series etc.

Favorite Movie: Gladiator. It's in my opinion the perfect movie. It has amazing action scenes, drama, a brilliant script and story and the acting throughout is top notch.

Favorite TV Series AND Recommendation: The Last Kingdom (NETFLIX): Story takes place late 800s early 900s. If you've watched and enjoyed either Vikings, or Game of Thrones, I highly recommend this. You'll enjoy it. Personally I think it's better than both of them.

Hey that sounds like a great idea. I've been watching The Sopranos while doing redwoods and fletching and it's been great. Obviously a very popular show so there's probably not a lot of people who haven't seen it, but I think it has a broad appeal. If you haven't watched it I'd definitely recommend it.

As for my favourite shows and movies. My favourite movies are Ran, Spirited Away, Children of Men, Psycho, Ikiru, Stalker, The Departed. My favourite shows are The Wire, Lost, The Simpsons, Aqua Teen Hunger Force and Samurai Champloo. I guess The Sopranos will probably make that list too.

If you're looking for an action movie I'd recommend Hard-Boiled. Easily my favourite action movie. A bunch of unbelievably well choreographed scenes in that movie.

Sopranos is a great show and it's a good time to watch it since the prequel movie is just coming out.

Some great choices for your movies and shows, especially The Wire.

If you're talking about the movie I think you are from the early 90s with Chow-Yun Fat and directed by John Woo, yes! That was a great one.

I rented "As Good As It Gets" the other day with Jack Nicholson and Helen Hunt. I watched it twice. It is a decent movie, and deals with some pretty heavy issues. It's not a light-hearted film, but the acting and story are pretty good. Jack won an Oscar for his role in it.

***Spoiler Alert***

I personally don't really agree with the point of the movie. It is trying to do too many things. Such as being an emotionally deep and serious film but also a light-hearted romance. The ending is happy, and I think that's where the movie went wrong. You're dragged through a lot of serious and complicated themes and then it turns into a romance flick.

The point where the story lost me was when Carol (the waitress) calls Melvin (Nicholson) after their trip to Baltimore, and apologizes for all the mean things that she said. In my opinion, this is unrealistic. People like Melvin's character don't just change on a dime like that and become capable of love so easily. Plus, their immense age difference makes it all the more implausible.

But overall, a good movie, and I recommend watching it. Especially if you like watching dysfunctional people slog their their lives!

I agree with your view of the movie. It is pretty good but I agree it was very muddled and the Nicholson character while acted fantastically, wasn't going to change the way he did.
