    Watch "X Company." It's a TV series about spies during WW2. Canada/Hungarian co production. Really good.

    Everything before 1980 is not fake or bad picture quality and you have very pretentious taste in movies. How are you not bored while you are watching one of those?

    The Limehouse Golem. Perfume the Story of a Murderer. Allied. Tulip Fever Lady Macbeth. The Age of Adeline. Timeline. Crusade. The Man in the Iron Mask. The 13th Warrior. The Postman. That's just a few. All great in different ways and set in different times.

  • Have you seen, "The English Patient" it is a war romance, "Camelot" "Braveheart" "Gladiator" "The Ring" ????

    One of the best movies that no one knows about is called "11:14". You need to watch it at least three times until everything fits together. Too serious to be a comedy, too funny to be a drama.
