    I figure some of you have to be fellow movie enthusiasts. Rate what you just watched!

    You're Gonna Miss Me (2005) - 10/10

    I simply can't get enough of Roky Erickson, or documentaries about fallen geniuses. It's as loved by me as The Devil and Daniel Johnston.

    I have given up on TV at this point instead going for DVDs of TV shows and films so I would be here all day if I were to go over them all.

    Still
    Dogma: old but I had never seen it, film with a rather amusing take on religion. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0120655/
    Planet Terror: one of the best zombie films I have ever seen. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1077258/
    Harold and Kumar go to Whitecastle/Harold and Kumar get the munchies (depending on where you are in the world): I do not not usually go in for stoner films but this was great. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0366551/

    FLCL - 9/10 Very funny and strange and original anime of around 6 episodes. It is short and worth the watch! Ofcourse only when your into that kind of stuff [​IMG]
