| Movie/TV Board|| World Without End - on Netflix - biglego on 10/12/14 at 3:44 pm|
If anyone enjoys Medieval european history, this is a great series. I hadn't even heard of it til I randomly cane across it. Its a series of 8 1-hour episodes set in 14th century England, against the backdrop of Black Death and Hundred Years War. The acting is good and it never looks cheesy or small...
| Movie/TV Board|| Anyone see A Very Wanted Man? - biglego on 9/5/14 at 11:10 pm|

Can I chlorinate a 9'x5' inflatable pool? I'm getting tired of draining and refilling it every other day. Is there some reason I couldn't sprinkle a little in and stir it up some? ...
| Movie/TV Board|| Ironclad review - biglego on 5/24/14 at 9:46 am|
Saw this on Netflix yesterday and it was surprisingly good. Very good. If you like movies like Arn, Braveheart, etc then it's a must see.
The movie featured impressive realism without ever falling into cliche. There's no super warrior princess, no tacked on love triangle, no cheesy speeches. It's...
| Movie/TV Board|| Arn: The Knight Templar - biglego on 4/13/14 at 8:07 pm|
I hadn't even heard of this movie but I'm watching it now on Netflix and it's shocking to me how good it is. Realistic, gritty, no goofy caricatures. Anyone else see this? I'm always looking for good medieval movies. ...
| Movie/TV Board|| Is Rome any good? - biglego on 3/30/14 at 5:59 pm|
Thinking about starting it but I see its only two seasons and I don't recall hearing much about it. Worth a watch or should I just go ahead and start Breaking Bad? ...

This could be the greatest thing to happen to the country since we won WW2. I'm not even sure if I'm exaggerating. Consider all the communities that have been destroyed by subsidized housing and all th...

| Movie/TV Board|| Army of Darkness - biglego on 9/30/12 at 7:07 pm|
After so many years I finally sat down to watch his movie today. I turned it off after 30 minutes. I guess it's my aversion to camp but I just couldn't get into it.
Am I just missing something with this movie? ...
| O-T Lounge|| Anyone know much about Krav Maga? - biglego on 4/3/12 at 2:14 am|
Particularly the krav maga schools in the New Orleans area?
I'm looking to get into a martial art so I can beat some ass. I'm 32, in ok shape but not great shape. I'm real tall and pretty thin. I have a weak lower body and a bum left knee but decent upper body strength. I don't want to do gra...

Place was on Lapalco right past Barataria Blvd. Anyone knows what happened to it? I really liked the food and it always seemed to have a nice crowd, but one day it was just out of business. :wah:...

| Movie/TV Board|| Legion, Paranormal Activity, I love You Man - biglego on 5/17/10 at 11:26 pm|
Watched these three this weekend. And the only enjoyable one was Paranormal Activity. Probably the creepiest movie I've seen. It was well done.
And on the other end of the spectrum, Legion. Awful. Not one good thing about it. Terrible acting, terrible dialogue, terrible story, terrible action s...
