    I'm definitely in the mood for some good movies. Not in the mood for a great one, if that makes sense. Want a couple of hours of entertainment, but don't want my face rocked off.

    What have I seen lately.. Moneyball, Ghostbusters, Rise of the Planet of the Apes, Super 8, and Rush: Beyond the Lighted Stage. All good, but not great. Which is good.

    I'm a big movie fan and a lot of the good ones have been mentioned. There are a few shows I would like to mention though, in case anyone is interested. I like shows just because a good story can develop so much and you get to (possibly) enjoy it for years.

    My favorite of all time is The Wire. It's a cop drama but it's pretty unique in the way you get to view the story from multiple viewpoints. It starts from the views of the low level, street gangsters and works its way around and up through detectives, police departments, various levels of politics, high level drug lords, reporters, etc. It's very well done (well, IMO the last season hurts in some ways) but it's for sure my favorite series of all time.

    Man Men is always a favorite. I also really enjoyed Deadwood. My staples generally come from Showcase, AMC and HBO. HBO was always my favorite but AMC is developing nicely and showcase has some brutal/ racy/ intense type shows that I enjoy, albeit somewhat low budget looking.

    As far as those kind of series go, The Sopranos was the best of all time. Pine Barrows is my favourite episode, a standalone story if you will. I've been meaning to check out The Wire too. Mad Men I couldn't get into, and Deadwood lost my interest sometime after Wild Bill was killed.

    Entourage, hands down the best show ever.

    Ari Gold is beyond funny.
    Haven't watched Mad Men but heard good things. Same with Dexter.

    Well, if you want an entertaining mediocre movie, how about Mission Impossible [if you haven't watched it already?]. Not the greatest, but the stunts were heart stopping.

    Some of you mentioned Inception, but I just did not like it at all; not my genre I suppose.

    Edit: Not about movies, but entertaining nevertheless. Such flexibility, focus and strength. Spellbinding!

    I looked through my hardrive and these are some of the movies I had previously never heard of, yet thought they were good enough not to delete.



    Dramas;

    -"Perfume - a Story of a Muderer" (Dustin Hofman)
    -"Teeth"
    -"Leon - the Professional" (Natalie Portman, Jean Reno)
    -"The Beach" (Leonardo DiCaprio)

    Comedies;

    "Go" (Timothy Olyphant)

    Action;

    "The Tournament" (Ving Rhames)


    Not excellent, but watchable.

    Snatch is my favourite movie of all time. Excellent choice.

    I know every single quote from that movie off by heart.

    Lock, Stock is good, too. I own both of them.

    Dmoney, do you like Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction, too?

    Stocks aren't boring. They all have individual personalities.

    Definitely. Took a couple watches to really love them both, but they are both great movies.

    I'll add Scarface and The Godfather to this list to state the obvious.

    The Dark Knight was also unbelievably good.
