Film and Television Recommendations

Because Jimcy's too much of a bitch.

There should be a thread where we just recc shit to people to watch.

I've had so many shows I've been told to watch and I forget about almost all of them.

I remember I need to watch Twin Peaks and everything besides that has drifted out of my head.

Rectify:

What We Do in the Shadows:
A documentary team films the lives of a group of vampires for a few months. The vampires share a house in Wellington, New Zealand. Turns out vampires have their own domestic problems too.

It's amazing how much Chris Pine looked like Tim Elephant.
Or 'Olyphantastic' as Kevin Smith dubbed him while they were shooting CATCH AND RELEASE.

Apparently Ol' Timmy needs to be the centre of attention at all times.

I recommend you turn the movies and tvs off and go outside, live a little. Make your own adventures, chums.
 

Voodoo Ben

The African Dream

I watched this the other night, great documentary, it's about how Jim Carry lost himself while portraying Andy Kaufman.


In 1999, Jim Carrey portrayed his idol Andy Kaufman in “Man on the Moon.” For twenty years, the behind-the-scenes footage has been withheld…until now.

I've seen many of your recommendations and agree with all of what I've seen. This makes me want to check out this Recti...
Rectify really needs more respect. I have it up there with Leftovers as Best TV of the Decade.
Leftovers...Leftovers....I've heard that before....god dammit, that's that Damon Lindelof show again isn't it?


I better not watch Rectify either, just to be sure.
