1. A Message For Everyone:

    TCW vs. Rebels debates are not allowed in the Television forum. As in, discussions that descend into TCW/Rebels bashing/gushing will be subject to Mod action. Contrasting the themes, story lines, characters, etc. between the shows is allowed (welcomed, even). "Versus" debates/arguments, however, are a deal-breaker.

    I liked Crystal Skull; it's my second favorite Indy film next to Raiders. Last Crusade was OK; I can't watch Temple of Doom without wanting to go through my TV screen.

    I've seen about half of the Bond films and liked about half of those. (not a big fan of the Roger Moore ones, and haven't seen any Dalton or Lazenby ones) And to be fair, I've only seen about half of DAD.

    I like all three original Indy movies. TOD has a lot of great moments, despite the complete failure that is its leading lady (if anything, Indy and Short Round's reactions to her somewhat justify her existence beyond her sleeping with Stevie). Crystal Skull has a lot of issues, more than any of the other three (which, despite being pretty damn awesome, are not flawless), but it's still pretty enjoyable most of the time.

    My favorite Indy movie is probably The Last Crusade. My Indy fadora is probably my most cherished Disney souvenir.

    My list of favorite movies would change everytime you ask me to whichever movies I really enjoy that pop into my head at the time. Its mainly a lame mix of comedy, animation, and some other stuff.

    This time around I've come up with
    October Sky
    The Lion King
    Drop Dead Gorgeous
    Kill Bill Vol 1 and 2
    Dragonheart
    Born Free
    Titan AE.
    The Hangover
    Roger Rabbit
    A Goofy Movie

    My favorite TV shows are again a mix of animation and stuff on Discovery, History, Travel you get the picture.

    We watched October Sky in one of my middle school or elementary school science classes. I haven't seen it since, but remember liking it well enough.

    @anakinfansince1983 I'm tempted to post your sig on Facebook to see how many people actually check their privacy settings... :p

    I used to watch TV all the time when we had a DVR. Now that we don't, I just wait for shows to come out on Netflix.

    3. Veep
    4. Parks and Recreation
    5. The Good Wife
    6. Mad Men
    7. Star Wars: The Clone Wars
    8. Breaking Bad

    I watch heaps of TV. I reckon it's harder to put TV shows in your favourite order compared to movies. Here's my current favourites:

    Star Wars: The Clone Wars - Definitely my favourite animated series of all time.
    The Amazing Race - I just watched season 22 not long ago, and it's still amazing. I reckon it just keeps getting better and better.
    Arrow - I'm about half way through season 1 at the moment, and I really like it.
    Revolution - I haven't watched season 2 yet, but season 1 was awesome.

    Lost use to be my favourite TV show when it was on, it would've been awesome if they were still making more seasons, but I guess it was on for quite a while and there's not much more they could do with it.

    I remember watching October Sky in a highschool history class but I saw the movie the the first time before that and it just resonated with me and... I have briefly engineered the steam locomotive that gets a cameo in that movie. =D

    I don't watch much TV, and really only then I watch sci-fi. Stuff like Lost, Fringe, Doctor Who, Battlestar Galactica, Orphan Black. Oh, and Game of Thrones.

    I'd say my favourite movies would be a tie between the LOTR trilogy and Nolan's Batman trilogy. While SW is definitely the franchise I spend the most time with, neither trilogy is as strong as those two in terms of overall quality IMO, where all three films are excellent.

    I'm not sure which order to put the movies and tv shows I like in, but here is a list of movies and tv shows that I like a lot.

    Movies
    Star Wars (the prequel films)
    Batman Begins
    The Dark Knight
    Batman Under The Red Hood
    Green Lantern First Flight
    Green Lantern Emerald Knights
    Titan AE
    Delgo

    TV Shows
    The Clone Wars
    Green Lantern The Animated Series
    Thundercats (2011)
    Transformers Prime
    Batman Beyond

    I like The Clone Wars a lot because it is a good animated fantasy show and it has a dark tone. Does anyone know of any other animated fantasy tv shows that have quite a dark tone similar to the ones that I have listed?

    For movies... off the top of my head and in no particular order (except for SW being first):

    Star Wars (all of them... I count them as a whole and don't usually list them individually when doing favorite movie lists)
    The Lord of the Rings (all three as a whole, similar to SW)
    The Hobbit (planning for this to be for all three as a whole as well)
    The Bourne Trilogy (meaning the three that had Matt Damon in them)
    The Godfather Trilogy
    Ronin
    Jaws
    Gladiator
    Bond movies (mostly the Connery movies and the ones with Daniel Craig)
    Indiana Jones (all, but not so much for number four)
    The Toy Story Trilogy
    The Avengers and the Iron Man movies
    The Shawshank Redemption
    Jurassic Park
    E.T.

    I just saw Man of Steel.

    One sentence version: Superman and Zod destroy Metropolis and Smallville by beating the **** out of each other for two hours, interspersed by military officers saying "GAH! What are we going to do about the aliens???"

    I enjoyed it, but it was definitely more effects-focused than plot-focused.

    Only a few hours. It's strange to be in my own home after three months, I'll tell you.
