I never really watched the Sopranos until now. It's not really a movie, but it's the same genre.

When it was on, I was too busy running around, nursing my first child and was passed out by like 8pm on Sunday nights.

I'm on Season 4 now and the thing that is striking is that every character wearing any NJD paraphernalia, be it a cap, sweater, hoodie, etc, has been whacked thus far.

Strange.

Donnie Brasco.

Not "Mafia" but "mob/gangster" movies: The Departed. Miller's Crossing is supposed to be quite good. Haven't seen it yet. And of course, Scarface.

Once Upon a Time in America is a fan-****ing-tastic movie.

Make sure you watch the actual extended edition, not the version that was trimmed down to like an hour and a half.

Just watched the first SOA episode (Pilot). Looks promising. I'll stick with it.

One of my top 3 shows on tv right now. Dexter and The Walking Dead round out the list.

I dont watch any dramas. All I watch are comedies. The only drama I used to watch was Rescue Me. There's White Collar, but I dont think that counts as a drama.

Add Eastern Promises with Viggo Mortensen.

And one of my favorites - Find Me Guilty with Vin Diesel. Can`t say how much I love that movie. It`s a comedy.

Do not recommend Mickey Blue Eyes or Jane Austen`s Mafia.

hey guys, haven't posted here in a while, but i lurk every day, but since this is the entertainment thread, i figured i'd leave this little nugget o' info: so last week i became a radio DJ @ rutgers(90.3 The Core), and i just had my second show early this morning, so if you guys want to tune in, my show is from 2-4am every sunday morning(i know, it's a bananas time slot, but i gotta take what i can get). i'm just trying to gather listeners at this point and hopefully build a following, because music is my passion, and radio is what i want to get into once i graduate.

you can follow me on twitter as well, @riolusquinos. i just posted the tracklist from my show this morning, so check it out and you can get a pretty good idea of what i play.

thanks a lot guyzzzz

Also I'd add in A History of Violence with Viggo Mortensen (both were the same director I believe).

I'm predicting an episode similar to last weeks episode. Good with a little more character development throughout with some bang at the end.

Well, I saw 2001: A Space Odyssey today. After seeing it I haven't got a clue how I feel about it, such a unique film. Some parts/scenes were hard to watch just because they were so damn slow. Really well made film though I have to say, considering it's age.

Couldn't really get to grips with the film (the meaning of it and so on), loved the soundtrack though!

It is a hard film to understand the first time through. Kubrick was a genius, but a little crazy too. If you see it again it's easier, although I don't know if anybody will ever get all the meaning he put in it.

You know a character is a dumb ***** when it's the wife of the main protagonist, mother to his son and pregnant, and most of the audience wants her to ****ing die. Awful actress, annoying character.

I don't mind Carl, although he definitely suffers from "child actor" syndrome. Other characters - Lori and Andrea in particular - are just terribly acted and they don't even have age as an excuse. Look at Laurie Holden's (Andrea's) filmography and it's joke, but she was one of Frank Darabont's "acting friends" and since he was the original show-runner, she got the gig.

Glen (the Korean guy), Shane and Rick are the only well-acted roles on the show.

Hooked on Luck.

Haven't seen a series like this so well produced and presented.

Little disappointed. The way last week's ended I expected Rick to turn more into a no looking back badass.

Shane's character is just annoying at this point, but I think it's more the awful acting of the guy playing him - pretty poor acting all around though. Very over done on all parts, but **** man, the zombies are ****ing cool and the concept alone will keep me coming back.

Saw Safe House today. Not quite as impressed as I thought I would be. I enjoyed it. Not saying it was a bad movie or anything. But maybe my expectations going in were too high.

I've heard great things about Safe House, but I'm not going into the movie thinking it will be Training Day 2. That's just setting yourself up for immense disappointment.

Definitely want to see that and Act of Valor.
