I just saw one of my favorite movies "The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance" on TNT the other day. Stars John Wayne & Jimmy Stewart.

My favorite westerns are "Man Called Nobody" and "Outlaw Jose Wales".

I think that "Three Days of the Condor" might be the original hacker movie unless you count "2001: A Space Odyssey".

I prefer a good old DVD player attached to the TV.

If you're in the mood for a couple of films that are a bit different from the mainstream, then may I suggest Bad Boy Bubby, and Liquid Sky.

Aaron Russo's "America: Freedom to Fascism" is a good watch.

Talk about conspiracy theories...The controversial best selling novel now becomes a screen reality.

You should watch Taken. That movie was good. As far as a tv series goes, I would go with the Office.

An excellent movie - it wasn't long ago that I saw it for the first time.

Not seen the first, but the second is (coincidentally) my second favourite Clint Eastwood western (the first would have to be Unforgiven). My favourite Western, though, remains High Noon.

Don't think I've seen that since I was a teenager (and that's a long time ago).

I never took to The Office. I can see that it was well made, but it just made me cringe. Spaced, Black Books, Northern Exposure or The I.T. Crowd are more to my liking in TV comedy.

Robhogg. A Man Called Nobody stared Terrance Hill and Henry Fonda. It was an adventure/comedy poking fun at spaghetti westerns, but Terrance Hill was so good, he starred in the Trinity series (more spaghetti westerns). Henry Fonda was an old school gunslinger who wanted to retire and just disappear. Terrance Hill was a new comer with a decidedly next gen style. It paralleled the societal changes in the 70's, when the film was released.

I just saw "Abre Los Ojos" (Open Your Eyes) this past weekend. I liked it much better than the Hollywood remake, "Vanilla Sky", which completely ripped off the original. Many of the scenes were taken almost verbatim.

Oh, and Penelope Cruz was really good looking in '97.

I think I saw "A Man Called Nobody", and it was actually quite good. Probably the only western movie I really liked. There was also one where Clint Eastwood was spitting on everyone and everything, like dogs, native Americans, etc. And, of course, "The good, the bad, and the ugly", which was good too.

The one where he kept spitting was 'The Outlaw Josey Wales'. 'Unforgiven' is a pretty damn good film too while we're on the subject of Clint Eastwood.
