Yeah, awesome movie. Also deals a little with the Pagan/Christian debate in how the story will later be told, which is extra cool. When I first watched it (some three years ago) and saw the red-headed witch I grinned and thought "There's Abigail!"
Bloth, if you enjoyed it, you should totally check "The shadow of the Raven", an old (early '90s) Icelandic movie about vikings in Iceland and their clanish quarrels, within the context of Christianity having displaced the Old Gods (also, the central anecdote is a retelling of the Tristan/Isolde story). Here's a link:

Otherwise, I'm watching Kurosawa's Yojimbo/Sanjuro films...again...very happily as always. Definitely recommended for The Witcher community.

Another fine Viking movie that got sadly overlooked is Outlander: an alien scout chasing a dangerous beast crashes in dark ages Norway...mayhem ensues. Its actually very well done, solid B-movie entertainment. Here's the Amazon link with a trailer
Cowboys & Aliens tried the same kind of mash up story, Outlander is better IMO. Aside from Vikings, playing Batman: AC got me watching Batman: The animated series(which the games draw heavily from) again. Even if you're not a Batman fan they're worth checking out, the animation is excellent, the stories well written and Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill nail their roles.

However, if you like nice visuals, give it a shot.
And I just learned that Eiko Ishioka died She was costume designer for Tarsem's The Cell, The Fall (THIS MOVIE. OH DEAR, THIS MOVIE. ♥), Immortals, and Bram Stoker's Dracula. Here's a tumblr tag link where you can see most of her work: http://www.tumblr.co...ed/eiko-ishioka
Costumes in Immortals were beautiful. I've been crazy about gold lately and there's a bunch of Greek Gods who wear nothing but beautiful gooold. I will miss Eiko's vision so much.

Last show I watched was Game of Thrones, for a 2nd time. Really like it.

Justified is a good show with great characters! Just 2 episodes into the third season and I'm already hooked again.
Also SouthLAnd just started again and it looks like it will be another great season.

Game of Thrones, House, Rome, Braking Bad but my favorite tv show definitely is the new BSG series, the four whole seasons, pilot and extra long feature films of it!
Movies, there are too many to mention and most of what everyone here loved too. But this last one I've watched today... I'm so in love with it! Or with the girl with the dragon tattoo to be more precise.

Recently watched Leon the Professional thought it was really good. Features Natalie Portman as a loli

An Absolute Masterpiece. I really liked Léon and how mentally slow his character was, One very memorable character.

Julianna Margulies is the only reason I gave that show a chance because the previews were not interesting, but I loved her in ER. I also liked Chris Noth on Law and Order so I figured good actors can make the show interesting, whatever the subject.
It's an OK show but the plot moves forward excruciatingly slow. Every episode is 98 percent 'random case' and 2 percent 'moving her story forward'. It becomes a pain to watch because I just don't care about a lot of their side stories and the main story gets so little screen time.

Now you reminded me of when I was 6 or something and my mom got me a Batman costume for Carnival but it was Gold and Black. I hated it because the colours were so different of the TV show and also because it itched and stung the **** out of me!
Amazing how a child could see a hero in this:
Now, Nolan's Dark Knight is so much better! heh
So true. I hate it! I keep anxious until the next week's episode wanting to know what's going to happen. But the side stories are funny though. Some are very well written, IMHO.
