I’ve watched (too) many movies and television shows. Unfortunately having OCD makes it a time-consuming addiction that is difficult to quit. I’m considering some day making a list of all of the movies and shows I’ve watched, but that would be more work than actually watching them.

In general, I don’t write reviews because I find it to be frustrating enough to watch them in the first place, let alone spend extra time to write about them. That said, I occasionally do write reviews for shows or movies that I either really love or really hate.

I watch television shows and movies of all genres and dates, but I am not fond of reality-shows because they cheapen the art and work.

These days, I find that most of the movies I watch tend to be in the summer when television becomes "light" because during the TV season, I just don't have the time, what with at least 10 hours per night on average.

Thankfully, when the VLC (VideoLan Client) video-player changed their speed setting so that it only affects the tempo instead of the pitch of the audio, it became possible for me to watch videos at high speed. Now I find it difficult to watch even things I like at less than 130%, let alone junk that I don't want to watch (depending on what it is, I have managed to successfully watch some things as fast as ~210% before it becomes unwatchable!)

I also manage my never-ending, ever-growing list by having things I don't care about running on TV or in the corner of the monitor while I work on other things.

comment Looking for last name of bald, muscular, dead action star named Bryan
@hit-and-run-down-voter, what’s your problem? I figured out the problem and explained how others can do the same with their own similar questions. If anything, this is a great question and answer, so I really don’t understand what your problem (if any) is.

comment Boy carves Initials onto turtle shell; years later, turtle is gigantic
@lgoss, yes, the boy and girl were friends when they were little and were reunited and fell in love years later when they were older.

comment What does “4P” mean?
Okay, that makes sense. I guess this is a good example of a time-sensitive and context-dependent joke.

That page does not mention a 4-P; I suppose he made it up. I can only assume that the audience (in the movie and viewers of the movie) got the joke because the Vietnam war was still fresh in their minds so they were familiar with the classifications.

comment Who is the third girl in “Black Swan”?
So the second is a morph of the two actresses? That’s interesting because it doesn’t really look like either, she almost looks like Ali Larter. I guess morphing software has come a long way.

comment Why did Kirk ignore Marcos 12?
I guess that makes sense. It sounded like he was saying that they were already people he had brain-washed, but I suppose since he said “Marcos 12 will be our new beginning”, he may have meant to go there to repeat what happened on Triacus.

comment Is Eisenheim's sword illusion realistic?
@vsz, Dynamo performed a walking-on-water trick on the Thames in a public area, in front of many people, yet it’s pretty obvious how he did/could have done it even though it would require quite a bit of prep and help and secret/hidden actions. ;-)
