    Alright, so its a slow morning at work and I'm piling on my Netflix queue. My wife and I watch at least a movie a week and have seen a ton of flicks.

    Looking for a good suggestion.

    We're fresh off seeing Reign Over Me, Get Him to the Greek, and have Temple Grandin coming up next with the Kids Are All Right after that.

    Just giving you all an idea of what we tend to watch, we try to steer away from corny ass flicks but I try to sneak in an action movie that will be complete nonsense (like the Expendables or Predators).

    Hit me with some suggestions while I work this warlock out.

    Ah... Was going to recommend The Wizard. One of Fred Savage's best works, and a total Nintendo pimp-fest. Soundtrack is pretty choice too...

    LOL... That's kind of classic. I swear I saw that at the theater when I was a kid.

    Man, I've had it on and off my queue. I love Turturro. It's going back on now...

    Anymore anyone?

    I've caught both of them and agree with you... Good flicks.

    Kiss Kiss Bang Bang will be added as for sure.

    V for Vendetta I was kind of unsure about but will add it...

    I honestly think you will like both. Downey Jr and Kilmer are 100% fantastic and V for Vendetta will surprise you I think. The central character, V, is very well done/interesting throughout the film.

    Jamie Foxx and Tom Cruise, another great movie I just picked up in BD format. Personally, I haven't seen Jamie Foxx in a bad role. Although it gets bad reviews, I even like Miami Vice.

    Miami Vice was a movie I saw, liked it, but never watched again.

    Collateral is a movie I've watched probably 6 or 7 times - I just love Tom's character. Vincent is awesome.

    Go old school with an Alfred Hitchcock flick knock famously as "Vertigo". Considered the 2nd best movie of all time by film buffs, right behind "Citizen Kane".

    Yeah, good idea... Is it bad I've never really seen any of the Hitchcock flicks?

    I think I'll go with Citizen Kane...

    I haven't either - I'm not THAT big of a movie guy. I leave the old stuff alone for the most part.

    Wow I'd like to see who considers Vertigo the 2nd best movie of all time and then punch them in the face.

    I watched Heartbreak Ridge ('87 Eastwood) last night here on my laptop. Pretty solid movie.

    I just updated my Q with December releases. I'll put them in the order I'm interesting in seeing them.

    Inception(seen but want to revisit)
    Salt
    The Town
    Wall Street Money Never Sleeps
    The Other Guys
    The A-Team
    Twilight: Eclipse
    The American

    Also Resident Evil: Afterlife came out but that doesn't really interest me. December is a huge DVD release month and that should keep you occupied for a bit.

    I've never been a huge movie guy but I'm really big into TV series. Some of my all-time favorites:

    The Wire
    Friday Night Lights
    Sopranos
    Sons of Anarchy
    Weeds
    Curb
    How to Make it in America
    Dexter

    When I get time I want to get into
    Breaking Bad
    Mad Men

    Any other TV Series guys?

    I'm all about watching the TV-Series via Netflix. I've seen all of Weeds, Dexter, Mad Men and Breaking Bad. I watched a season or two of FNL but it jumped the shark several times over and I bailed. I tried to get the GF into The Wire but it was to slow for her to ever get locked in.

    I'd recommend you check out both of those. Breaking Bad's a series where you can just watch episode after episode but Mad Men IMO is better but not something you can sit there and knock out 4 episodes of at one time.

    Mad Men is awesome.

    I really like Boardwalk Empire, Eastbound & Down, The League, and Hung (I'm a sucker for anything Detroit).

    FNL jumped the shark?! BLASPHEMY! It's a little corny sometimes but god damnit its emotional! I've shed many a tear watching the boys from Dillon, Texas. :-D

    I will def be giving BB and MM a shot. I started MM when it first came out but couldn't get into it.

    I've been meaning to watch a ton of those old flicks like that.

    With True Grit re-releasing, I kind of want to see the original first. I just watched Dirty Harry for the first time. I swear to god, my dad would kill me if he were alive today for me not watching all of the old Clint Eastwood, John Wayne, and Charles Bronson flicks.
