Main Menu About me Films & TV

 


Films & TV
I like to watch on TV mainly films/series of Scientific Fiction, Action, Comedy, Cartoons (including Manga), Documentaries and Pornography. I also like to watch the News. I like films/series like: 007, Batman, Blade Runner, Buck Rogers, Dragon Ball Classic/Z/GT, Galactica, Rambo, Rocky, Space 1999, Star Trek, Star Wars, Terminator, etc.

When DVD films became standard I started watching films in that format since they have better image quality than VHS and also have digital sound with two or more audio channels. Digital is the future and, as time goes by, the old analogue things will become part of history. I am trying to get in DVD, and more recently in Blu-ray, the old films and series which I enjoyed in the past. I want to only use DVD or higher.

We may say that the historical background of the general people relating films and TV was: VHS → DVD → BLU-RAY.

Widescreen video and High Definition/3D is the future.

I am a great fan of series involving space and aliens. In April 2007 I ordered a book from Amazon named "The Klingon Dictionary" by Marc Okrand. I wanted to translate to Klingon a sentence I heard in a S.P.O.C.K song: "Never trust a Klingon, he will always be ready!" but, I haven't the chance to read the book and learn the language.


With the films Star Wars I learned an important quote: "You are no match for me, young apprentice!". I am a great fan of Star Wars and this sentence could be adapted to many things in life.

"I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die."
