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 How did Selene get pregnant?
No, I did not; in fact I am talking specifically about them. The lines indicates that Selene didn’t know that Eve was born, but it says nothing about Selene knowing whether she was pregnant or not. She could have been pregnant already or the scientists could have extracted DNA and made her in a Petri dish.

comment How did Selene get pregnant?
I don’t understand why this was accepted, it doesn’t answer the question. The closest it comes is by assuming that if Selene was already pregnant, she knew about it which of course isn’t guaranteed (especially for someone busy fighting all the time).

comment Man learns hypnosis and mind-reading; helps police during interrogations
It’s called “The Misadventures of Merlin Jones”. So it’s a comedy? That’s odd because there is an old episode of Twilight Zone that is almost identical to what you described (a guy can suddenly hear thoughts, overhears plans for a crime, turns out to have misunderstood). The TW episode however was not a comedy. I recall it very well because he got the powers after having thrown a coin that landed on its edge, then at the end, when he lost the ability, he threw a coin that landed flat. So does Merlin Jones also fit the first part of your question as well?

comment Movie with character named Toed?
Todd (3465) from Soldier does not match what I described at all other than having the letters T-O-D in his name. Besides, I already determined that I was thinking of a character from the DragonLance novels.

@JacobG, Yes, Legacy is parallel, but they wanted to do a prequel; but when have plans ever worked out exactly as expected?

comment Looking for last name of bald, muscular, dead action star named Bryan
The answer is never going to change. Moreover, I specifically asked for help on finding it myself, and a more effective search engine than IMDB’s limited “advanced” search, or some sort of effective search query pattern would be generic and universally applicable. Maybe I’ll edit the question to be more general. Besides, of all SE sites, identify-this questions make the most sense here.

No, I already saw Glover in the list, but this one is American. I’m pretty sure this one also has a slightly pointer head than Glover.

comment Movie with character named Toed?
It turns out that I was not thinking of a movie at all; the character I was thinking of was named Toede, but he is from the Dragonlance novels.
