My Wife and I are huge movie buffs and used to go ALL the time but in the past year we havent done so much as we have concentrated all of our efforts into getting our house fixed up. We still thoroughly enjoy going tho when we have time!
As to TV....... I have a lot of favs I like to watch and some are as follows:

2- 1/2 men
Hawaii 5-0
Justified
The Mentalist
CSI Vegas
Mixed Martial Arts
History Channel
Man vs Food (comes as no surprise eh?
Modern Family
Malcom in the Middle
Survivor (when it's on)
Dancing with the Stars (when its on)
Just about any FX series
Sci-Fi channel especially on Sat. nites
There is probably more but thats it for now...

I went to see that 10 times and even went home and wrote down all his moves I had seen! I was really into martial arts then!

Too many movies seen over my 62 years! Ben Hur is still a fav! saw it with my mother in the 50s! when I was young!

Neil, what did you think of the King's Speech??? will take it out once it gets here.....I recently like that actor, seen on another movie.....plus the historical British background always fascinates me, having been educated in the western British traditions in school. Meaning....my Japanese wife has no idea of all the expressions and English idioms which derive from England ...hehehe!

1973 To be exact Thian and i saw it over 50 Times,It brought about a career for Jim Kelly with Black Belt Jones and also Bolo Yeung still acting in Kung Fu Films Today.I was a Huge Bruce Lee Fan reading all his Books including his very Rare Tao of Jeet Kune do.Im also a big Fan of Bruce Lees very Good Friend Dan Inosanto who taught Bruce Phillipino Kali(The Two Sticks)and of Course the Nunchakus where Bruce actually became Better than Dan at.Good old Days Thian!!!
Did you also know Jackie Chan was in two of Bruce Lees Films as he did a lot of Stuntwork,He was in Enter The Dragon and Fist Of Fury.He was killed by Bruce Lee in both Films as one of the Guards in enter the dragon and a stunt Double henchman in Fist Of Fury.

As for The Kings Speech.....


This is the type of thing the British film industry does so well - a bit of history, a bit of social comedy, a few liberties with the truth and a flag-waving finale.
Very funny in some places, full of tension in others and terribly moving at times, The King's Speech is brilliantly written and performed.I thoroughly Enjoyed it Thian.

but threw away all my memorabilia before I moved here! and NO...didn't know Chan was in those movies! I just saw Chan's the Karate Kid and liked it! Yeah, you failed to mention Chuck Norris! who still lives in Texas! I heard back in 2004 from a fellow g shock member living in Texas that Norris is quite the gentleman! Saw another martial arts movie where Inosanto plays a retired master...wow..I thought! he sure looks old hahahaha!

as well as many others that I couldn't even bring to my mind.

War Films of all ages and types, Sci-Fi of all vintage & types, Who dun it Mysteries, All 007 Bond & Bourne Films, Martial Arts of all kinds, Horror Films of all kinds & ages, Well done Comedies, ect.ect...

 I can't forget the Japanese Monster Sci-Fi film series classics such as Godzilla!

My top weekly TV show's are: Miami/NY/Vegas CSI, and Dr. House, and Pawn Stars.

Music types & venues galore...mainly the classics of pop, and Rock & roll, as well as New Wave Pop Rock like many of the styles of  80's groups from the UK and USA. (The Beach Boys, The Beatles, Men at Work, B-52's, Heart, Pat Benetar, New Order, Billy Idol, DuranDuran, Genesis, The Cure, 38-Special, ect.ect..)

Cheers mates- Jim
