I'd say I've probably watched more than double the 600 movies - I just kept 600. I probably watch a movie most nights before I go to bed; on Holidays several in a day. I haven't watched TV for years .
If I had the security (moneywise) to do so I'd be involved with films. I'd probably want to write screenplays or direct. Actually, I would enjoy acting too.

I have always had an interest in watching films but they weren't as easily accessible to me as it is now. Now, I can pick any obscure film I want to watch and get it. Many classics have still not been released on DVD mind.
I have watched films all my life but seriously started watching films around 5-6 years ago when I watched movies like The Godfather for the first time. I have a lot of ground to cover.
PS - I haven't watched much TV either but friends keep telling me TV Series are great, so I will give few of them a shot.
PS 2 - I wanted to get involved in films too. My dream job is to direct but I don't think I have the time to learn it because of my business. I shoot with my handicam as a hobby and that's it. I seriously want to produce some small budget local films in a few years though which I can do.

Anyway, someone mentioned 12 Angry Men a while back, there's also a very decent remake directed by William "French Connection & The Exorcist" Friedkin with Jack Lemmon in the Fonda role. Worth catching.

There is a hindi remake of 12 Angry Men called 'Ek Ruka Hua Faisla'.
A fair few Criterion and KINO DVDs in my collection are very precious to me as are some other films like Greed.
The Hurt Locker or The Hangover?
Superbad > The Hangover. IMO.
Saw Speed Racer today and it lived up to expectations. Crap film based on a crap cartoon. The Princes and the Frog yesterday and it's definitely "the best thing from Disney since The Lion King". Seriously good kids film, with enough appeal to be a date movie. Shows that there's still life beyond Pixar for Disney.

The Lion King is so ****ing good.
Might see Up In The Air tonight. Quietly excited.
Good to have you back in full throttle in the forums Liam.
