Picking Out an HD Television Set: A How To Guide

Since they were first introduced to the market, high definition television sets have been all the rage. Especially attractive to people who love watching movies and sporting events, these TVs give viewers a home entertainment experience that rivals going to a movie theater or a football stadium (or a baseball field, a basketball court, or a race track). When you have a high def TV, you enjoy top of the line digitally formatted broadcasts, known for their crystal clear image resolution and crisp, booming sound (sometimes even surround sound) quality.

Rediscover Classic Animated Films on Satellite TV

Animation brings the impossible to life. While it is easy to do when young, using your imagination can become more difficult as you get older. Rediscovering classic films, whether you watch them with friends your age or with youngsters who are seeing them for the first time, is one of the best ways to restore your belief in the extraordinary. The following are some of the top movies made in the 1980s and 1990s that you can catch on satellite TV today.

Watch Ashton Kutcher on Satellite TV

Born on February 7, 1978 in Cedar Ridge, Iowa, Ashton Kutcher is a Hollywood star who is one of the most recognizable faces on satellite TV, regardless of your age or personal interests. Kutcher was a biochemical engineering major at the University of Iowa who moved to New York to pursue a modeling and acting career after graduation. He has a fraternal twin, Michael, who suffers from cardiomyopathy, making their shared childhood quite difficult, and leading Kutcher to act out in typical rebellious ways. He first came to prominence when he played the dumb but loveable doof, Michael Kelso, on the hit Fox sitcom That 70’s Show, which is currently widely syndicated on satellite TV throughout the country. He then went on to star in a number of popular comedies, and an MTV television show called Punk’d, catapulting him into superstardom. He has also tried his hand at a number of more serious roles to help flesh out his career. Kutcher also has been the fodder of various tabloid stories, after his marriage to Demi Moore in 2005, who is more than 15 years his senior.

Triad Election or Election 2

This is the best sequel I’ve ever seen since Karate Kid 2, because it’s not a replay of the original successful movie, but a new look at these same gangsters. Election’s “good guy,” Lok, is now the one bucking triad tradition. He wants to be reelected chairman.

Election (Black Society)

Election is a fierce, passionate look at an election for chairman of the Wo Shing Chinese triad in Hong Kong. Triads are the long time Chinese gangs or organized criminal syndicates equivalent to the Mafia.

Chandni Chowk to China

Chandi Chowk to China is a harmless blend of Bollywood music-light and Chinese kung fu-light. The only good reason to watch it is that it stars Deepika Padukone, whose beauty makes up for all flaws.

The Best of Willem Dafoe

Willem Dafoe is the subject of this article, his career and movies. His films add up to 70 that he has starred in and of course he is not shy to take the lead or he is a wonderful supporting actor. This actor has a lot of talent that he can say many things with his face.

Must Watch Movies of 2010

2010 has been a good year for movie goers. Whether you’re into comic books, science fiction, or action, there was something for everybody. Here’s a list of the must see movies of 2010.

The Fighter – Movie Review

The Fighter delivers great performances, but fails to pack a punch. At the end of the day, The Fighter is a decent enough film, but nothing that will put it up there with the greats. It’s one where the acting far outweighs the script and movie itself.

Ban Cooking Shows on TV

So for anyone who watched the episode of South Park where Stan’s Dad is obsessed with the Food Channel will know what I am talking about. If you have a friend or a family member whose idea of a day off includes plopping themselves with a bag of chips in front of the TV watching the Food Channel, let me tell you it is a problem. You see watching Food Shows is a lot like watching pornography and if you think that too much pornography is bad for you then too much food based Television is also bad.

Give TV Credit for Teaching You About Life

TV has taught us much. I remember the days when people used to call it the “idiot box” and studies were conducted about how it makes kids dumber. People who loved to watch TV were routinely criticized and made fun of as if we were a bunch of unlettered idiots.
