On the chance that it might be raining next and I might be broke I want to start downloading a bunch of movies and TV series to have on hand just in case.
To give you a sense of what I am looking for, I just started downloading:
1. The Devil's Rejects - because as far as I can tell Rob Zombie can do no wrong.
2. Season One of Battlestar Galactica - because geeks who like the same type of geek culture that I do say it's good.
What would you guys recommend?
I don't usually like comedies - though I did like both The Aristocrats and Clerks 2. I hate both the type of comedies that are popular in America (Dodgeball, There's Something About Mary, the Jim Carrey and Adam Sandler ovres, etc..) and the UK (Little Britain, Borat, Mr. Bean.) I like funny plays on words, particularly for shock value. I just don't find it funny if the joke is someone walks funny, is lying about something and will eventually get caught or that the people involved are dumb/clueless or being taken advantage of.
I like geek stuff, but tend to find almost any film based on a comic book to be a snore fest. I love horror films, particularly if they can make me laugh in a "Jason X" kinda way, movies about mobsters, lesbianesque movies, but not porn type lesbians, more like "Bound", and noiresque stuff. I thought "Wild Things" and "Palmetto" were awesome.
I like some geek stuff, i.e. Star Wars and Harry Potter, but hate Dr. Who and Star Trek.
When it comes to TV shows I'll watch almost anything with clifhanger endings. My recent favorites being 24, Alias and Prison Break. I'm also partial to anything involving strong willed redheads in their mid 30s to mid 40s (think Marcia Cross and Addison Sheppard - I want to give Addison like 10,000 babies.)
What's out there?
