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.

- As featured in The Independent.
"as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."
- Barney Ronay on Mario Balotelli
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.
For everyone who pointed me to the '12 Angry Men' movie, thanks very much. Loved it from start to finish.
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.
