If you have Netflix check out "Video Games: The Movie".  You may like.

Have to check that out, Bots.  We switch back and forth between Netflix and Hulu Plus for a few different shows a night.  Supernatural, Gotham, Once Upon A Time, Arrow, Grimm, The 100, Flash, and a bunch of others.

Can't play games, so it's always showtime...

I don't have much time to watch movies/tv, and generally do the Netflix thing when I can (although I like buying a collecting movies as well).  I recently went on a kick and bought a bunch of Sci-Fi movies.  I haven't had time to watch them all yet, but here are some of the ones I have:

Moon - A very-thought provoking movie.  The main twist actually comes early on (and you'll probably see it coming), but it plays out very well and the main actor does an absolutely amazing job.  It's not an action movie or anything like that, but definitely worth a watch.

Predator 1 and 2 - For some odd reason, I don't think I'd ever seen these movies in their entirety, which was a tragedy that I needed to rectify.  I'm glad I did.  Yes, they're a bit silly and cheesy, but it's all worth it when you hear Arnold yell, "Get to the Choppa!!" (I had heard this phrase before and knew of it, but I didn't realize it was from this movie).  Predator 2 wasn't quite as good, but on the other hand, it's hard to argue against Danny Glover vs. Predator.  Also, now I want a Predator 3 where it's Adam Baldwin vs. Predator, because I love that guy!!  (Check him out in "Firefly" and "Chuck" to see what I mean).

The Fifth Element - Such a fun movie.  If you haven't seen it, go watch it.  It's good, light-hearted, cheesy sci-fi fun.  And it's got Bruce Willis... and Mila Jovovich... and an overall great cast.


I also bought the Alien and Planet of the Apes collections on blu-ray.  I haven't gotten around to watching them yet, but hope to soon.  However, I really like the packaging and presentation of them.  For those of you who like these films but don't own them yet (or want to upgrade), I highly recommend them.  I like to collect movies as well and part of that is having a nice set that looks nice and displays well.  However, nothing beats the Lord of the Rings set.  That is a thing of beauty and the gold standard by which all other movie sets should be judged.
I don't always play videogames, but when I do, I prefer Excitebots.  Keep spinning, my friends.  8)

I have a few DVD's laying around, but none that I bought.  All given to me by somebody over time.

The Fifth Element was a great movie, and Alien was great for its time.  The first two Predators were good, then it went south with things like Alien vs. Predator.  Lord of the Rings was a classic, I remember waiting for a year in between each one.

You should check out an old one called "Forbidden Planet".  A favorite from way back in the day.  It wasn't the first sci-fi movie, but it's considered to be the granddaddy of modern sci-fi movies.  Great for the time, and a good one for fans of the genre...

The missus bought me the complete 1970s action adventure series "The Six Million Dollar Man".  Most of the episodes are a bit lame, but, a few are decent.  Back in the day the series was huge success for several seasons.  I hear the series will be coming to the big screen maybe in 2017 starring Mark Walberg.  Of course,  retitled with Billion...inflation.

Should be a good one, Bots.  Sci_fi / Fantasy is still my main genre...

Sounds exactly like our lineup.  Also watch "The 100" and a few others.  And just found the first seasons of "Second Chance" and "11.22.63"...

Should be a good movie.  Though it shouldn't even be a question - super strength / super speed / invulnerability / flight / laser eyes / x-ray vision, against a guy with a fast car and cool toys...  :P

Going to watch it, though... ;)

Recently picked up the movie "John Wick" on blu-ray for like $8, which I'd heard good things about.  I gotta say, I agree with everything I heard.  One of the best action films I've seen in a while.  It was an action movie, made by people who exclusively do action scenes, for people who love action movies.  It delivers.

Looked like it might be good.  I'm still waiting for it to hit the streaming side of NetFlix, right now it's still only on DVD...
