Seriously, that show is fucked up beyond measure.
I honestly think that Season 4 is the single best season of any show that I've ever seen. I was floored by how engrossing and moving it was. Unreal.

The amazing thing is that it is has (by far) the least amount of action, but it is still so compelling.

Oh definitely, I cannot thank you guys enough. It's one thing to look at lists and see what you think you need to see, and another thing to actually talk to people who know what the hell they're talking about and can relate to you.

I need to organize these lists into something tangible.
I torrented for a bit, now I just Netflix or DVR everything.

YLB falls into the same category, but he's more in your boat than anything else, though, he's seen a lot of good shit this past year......and so have I, largely thanks to this forum.

If you're ever completely shit-faced, go to whatever list Dalton conjures up.
What he said.

I don't know if you saw my post the other day, but the three scenes from the end of season three between Avon & Stringer were amazing.

Tonight. Seriously. I'll give you the 10 bucks or whatever you'll need to rent 'em at Blockbuster. Or I'll Fed-Ex you my old VHS's.

I'll tune into 24 when I want a show with a lot of action, you know?

But, I know what you're saying....that's just how well done the show is written, acted, etc.

I did not see that, no, but I agree. The meeting they have at that new apartment stands out in my mind.

He's right, it's simply grotesque.

It's like the NFL thread right now.

Hey, Lord Piss, happy now? Your lack of film watching has actually lead us all down a path where GAF makes a post I 100% agree with.

HAPPY NOW LORD PISS?

Awwww

I'm not sure little GAF knows that there is a difference between Star Wars and Star Whores.

Well allow me to take me just place in disagreeing with all you apes. There are seriously dozens of other equally if not more important films he should see first. I mean, he likely knows all the key bits of culturally relevant iconography from those movies already anyway.

There's a shock...

While I would argue 2001 is a much better example of Science Fiction on film, I would definitely recommend Star Wars first to an 18 year old who has not watched a lot of films yet...

Not only are they technically impressive but they are a lot of fun. I personally owe a lot of my love for movies to George Lucas and I'm not embarrassed to admit that.

Don't forget, Lance, that Star Wars is inspired by a very visual-based approach to storytelling. From there you can segue right into the sweeping vistas and imagery of guys like John Ford and Akira Kurosawa.

There are worse places to start--like the films of Ridley Scott and James Cameron.

I'm currently working on an Excel spreadsheet based on films recommended by YLB, Laz, and Lance.

There are 171 films on said spreadsheet.
