Even so, I wouldn't get to season 2.

I ditched Prison Break like my first girlfriend the second it got stupid.

Also Michelle Rodriguez isn't so hot anymore... not Resident Evil hot anyway.
They love you so much that the 7th movie is filming right now and comes out next summer

hahaha, I was thinking the same thing.

"Season 1 I wanted to gauge my eyes out, 2nd season was kind of pretty okay, 3rd season's starting out pretty garbage. TOTALLY WORTH CHECKING OUT!"

In keeping with the recent Stephen Merchant and Ricky Gervais theme, one of my favourites is The Invention of Lying. So funny.

Another favourite , Wedding Crashers. Funny thing about this is that some funny scenes seemed deleted in the DVD version.
As long as we're on the topic, funniest movies by that "crew", in my order of preference: Old School, Night at the Roxbury, Anchorman, Zoolander, Talladega Nights, Wedding Crashers, Dodgeball, Sarsky&H.

Hated: Step Brothers, Land of The Lost, Blades of Glory.

Didn't care for: Semi-pro, Superstar, Fockers.

I fell in love with the production value of American Horror Story in its first season, not so much the story or the actors of the show. Also it was kinda "wild" for TV at first, I think that they set a new standard in their genre.

Second season was marvelous. They pushed the barrier even further in terms of shock value and every story-line was captivating. And I don't know how they managed to make it come together like they did instead of it being a jumbled mess of over-the-top unbelievable crap and unnecessary gore, instead it was a work of art, pure and simple.

This season, I don't know. Jury is still out but I don't like the girl's "power"... I hoe they didn't peak too early.

I love their approach to season 4. The show needed this kind of "tension", it's what the comics were all about and the series lost it with the Governor arc which was poorly executed. Was supposed to be the high point of the show and series, and it didn't feel like it at all.

A great example of how we take for granted that wives/girlfriends will never visit this site. Man, for your sake I hope your first girlfriend hates hockey and message boards...

haha, I think I dumped season 1 about 4 episodes in. My girlfriend watched a few more but dropped it as well. She's the one who started me on season 2. ****ing girlfriends. I'd have so much more free time....

So anyway as a super-hero fan I wanted to watch that SHIELD tv show and good Lord all mighty it's just a bunch of geeks talking to one another in the same set. I don't know what the Hell is this and what it's trying to be. I thought it was supposed to be an Avengers spin-off?

Seems unanimous that it stinks.

Anyone watch Arrow? Ive got a FB friend who keeps yapping about it.

I think overlords was talking about Vikings. How does it stack up with GoT?

Few shows stack up to GoT, the production value, the story and acting are all amazing, however I started watching Vikings this week, it's closer to what Rome is as a show, definitely worth a watch.

I have several posts about Arrow in this thread. You're the first to mention him again.

I think Arrow may not have garnered enough attention on account of the repetitive and slow-paced first season, where a lot of the storylines were cheesy and some of the dialogue naive and overly cartoonish.

Fast-forward to this season, acting is much better, scripts more compelling, several characters are forging a more interesting identity. Arrow is part of the DC Comics world, so the next big thing on the show will be the Flash making an entrance at some point this season. All shows so far this season have been gripping. Several sub-plots are becoming more meaningful. I'd recommend it as one of the shows to follow this year, if you like the genre.

Grimm returning this evening, for Season 3.

Season 2 recap HERE.

Show came a long way, where Season 1 special effects left a lot to be desired. But not the script and its characters, which remained solid throughout Season 2. Another show that is worth a follow, IMHO.

Watched the documentary Blackfish which is an account of the life of SeaWorld orca Tilikum , who killed its trainer Dawn Brancheau in 2011. If you were at all moved by The Cove this is a good production.

The documentary leaves little room for doubt about how captivity is so against the natural lives if these intelligent and very social creatures that it can turn them into depressed and perhaps psychotic beasts.

Also the Conduct of Seaworld in the Brancheau case is deplorable.

As an aside I personally witnessed a Seaworld Orlando incident some 23 years ago where a trainer was injured and removed from the water after the performing Orca pinned the trainer to the pool wall and seemingly dislocated his shoulder. I remember the explanation at the time that the orca was being 'playful' but after watching this film I realize that these are acts of animal aggression that have been covered up for decades.

Filmmakers like Wong Kar Wai, Michael Haneke, Harmony Korine, and Werner Herzog create a strong case against "the nothing is new" theory. They also leave Tarantino in their dust if we're going to talk about non-linear and unconventional filmmaking. Tarantino is as conventional as can be. He's pandering to the audience at this point while still being able to bask in his own self-indulgence. There is a difference too between inspiration and downright plagiarism.

Tarantino's work borders on cliché. It's just not good filmmaking, with a few exceptions. Django Unchained was nearly unwatchable because he just referenced his own films rather than referencing any other cinema. At least with films such as Kill Bill he's reaching out of his own repertoire.

The problem too lies that the substance of his films are purely superficial. The substance starts and ends with his smart references and snappy dialogue. There is not much else to his films aside from that. Which is a problem. If we are to create something truly unique and new, a filmmaker must move past the superficial. Someone like Harmony Korine uses images of the superficial in Spring Breakers to present interesting ideas about that superficiality that he's showing. The same can't be said for Tarantino.

Also, Jackie Brown might be his best film only because it's based on a source material that he didn't create.

That being said, his films can, at times, be good fun. Which is why I enjoy Pulp Fiction and Inglorious Basterds. But, to me, his repertoire is spectacularly weak.
I love internet bohemian elitists. Some serious namedropping there.

I'm firmly in the school of thought that thinks that movies cannot be, and will not be, art. They can be artistic, they can be beautiful and captivating and emotional but they cannot be art so I pretty much disagree with everything our little Bohème has to say about Tarantino.

For instance Terrence Malick is a lot of things but he's NOT giving people new and fresh - no way.

Randomly assorted movies to check out:

The Diving Bell and the Butterfly (Le Scaphandre et le Papillon)
Once Upon a Time in the West
Grosse Pointe Blank
The Maltese Falcon
Touch of Evil
Marathon Man
The Great Escape
Big Trouble in Little China
Get Low (2009)

Totally eclectic list but I'll be watching and rewatching those this week I think.

The first season of Prison is one of the best piece of television ever made. The second season is fine, but the rest is absolute crap.

Prison Break was buffed bad boys taking their shirts off. Nothing more. The show broke ground with an audience which was mostly female, but dragged along with it poor courting males who were doing their duty . Let's be clear Doing their Duty is a euphemism for trying to get laid.

I think it was genuinely good until they broke out. But I'm a shows freak.

The Heat with Melissa Mccarthy and Sandra Bullock had me laughing out loud. Mccarthy is an amazing comedic actor.

Good tonic after a Habs loss.
