    New fun thing; Sort the movies on my computer by genre. Because they all use metadata rather than me manually typing everything in, there's some bloody weird genres. Try and guess which films I have from these genres:

    Albino Bias
    Christian Film
    Future History (what the hell does this mean?)
    Movies About Gladiators
    Mumblecore
    Psycho-Biddy (perhaps my favourite descriptor ever)

    The Guardian actually called it S Club Game of Thrones Junior. And the even better Hollycloaks. :awesome:
    It's true. They speak in monotones, the atmosphere is dreary and the narrative is dull and slow-moving.

    Game of Thrones however...have you still been watching it? :hmmm:

    Knowing Phalanges' film taste, I bet 1 TSR credit that it's anything but Gladiator. Another 1 TSR credit that there's a documentary in there somewhere. :pierre:

    I had stopped but I recently went on a bit of a binge which took me up to episode 7. I would have watched the last one but the weekend came and F1 beckoned instead.

    It's very watchable. I do enjoy it, but I don't think it's a great work. There are moments when it all comes together and that's fantastic (and they usually involve Aidan Gillen, who is absolutely sensational in this) but for every moment like that there's a moment where you think "ugh, why am I watching this?". And also something that really annoys me is how jarringly clunky some of the dialogue can be, when they speak as if they're from some historical stereotype but only do it intermittently and nobody really gets how to put inflections on that kind of speech.

    So yeah, I would class it as similar to Rome and Spartacus were it not for it's really good cast and story which occasionally shows moments of genius, which elevates it slightly above those. Speaking of crap pseudo-history shows though, I'm looking forward to The Borgias. :ahee:

    Gladiator? :pierre:
    Haha, not quite. I would be utterly amazed if anyone got this one. It is by no means an obscure film, just hilariously miscategorised. I can't think of a single gladiator in it, although there is an arena of sorts. In fact, none of them are particularly obscure except maybe the one from mumblecore and the future history one.

    Also, no docs from those categories Ape. :p:

    Hint; none of them have the genre in their title. :p:

    Future History was Things To Come (which is apparently available for free on youtube, and worth a watch if you have the time - I've never seen anything quite like it).

    There were no biddies in Psycho. :p: Psycho-biddy is a perfect genre for this film, it pretty much sums up the plot of the film.

    Nope, that is cyperpunk. :p: It is sci-fi though.

    Need a film to watch now. Ideas? Looking for an 'inspiring' film and was thinking along the lines of I Am Sam or Invictus, having watched neither.

    She is not a (psycho) biddy anywhere near the extent in the sense of the lead in this film. :p:

    Inspirational, you say? How about Up In The Air or Please Give, if you haven't seen those? Invictus is also a good shout.

    Seen both. Enjoyed Up In the Air but, not being especially driven by money in the first place, I didn't find it particularly inspiring. May go with Invictus then.

    It's not Star Wars, is it?

    I can tell this is going to nag me for ages.
