To get the ball rolling the best film I've seen recently was last night when I watched Priceless with Audrey Tautou and Gad Elmaleh. My current favourite TV show is The X-Files, we have been watching it on DVD and I think it might have jumped the shark but it is still rather good.

My most recent movie that I watched was "Ratatouille" and was ever so ironic as I watched on my flight back from Paris to Singapore! My favourite television show at the moment is "Brothers & Sisters" - I am completely addicted to it... The amount of drama that can happen within one family is nuts! -Sophie (www.myspace.com/thatvintagebird)

rachz said...

The best recent film I saw was Inside, a french horror/suspense film. Scary!
My current favourite TV is Law & Order. All of them. I could watch reruns alll day.

Ok, I'll play!!

We went and saw Indiana Jones this week. Hubby was a fan in the 80's, I didn't care, just enjoyed going out to the movies for a change. It was pretty good, a bit old fashioned in its predictability which is what movies used to be like.
Fav tv show.....hmmmm probably a toss up between House and LOST.

Diane said...

This is so sad... the last time I went to the movies was to see The SImpsons Movie! I did enjoy it though. My favourite tv show at the moment is a toss-up between America's Next Top model and Project Runway (both on here tonight! Yah!)

Stacey said...

The best movie I have seen recently is The Lives of Others. Its a bit hard to knit and read subtitles so I probably missed half the plot, but what I saw, I liked.
Favourite TV show? Ladette to Lady. Sad but true. Makes me feel very genteel in comparison!!

I haven't been to the movies since I was pregnant..some 2 years ago! But I watched The Holiday on DVD a few weeks ago and it was great!
Favorite TV show is Medium. It's the olny show I stay up late for!

elponk said...

Ok, my favorite tv show is any of the CSI's, and a favorite movie I've seen recently is Lars and the Real Girl..it's a sweet movie!

Bunny B said...

Ooo... I've been wanting to watch Priceless! My fave recent movie would definitely be Indiana Jones and Iron Man!! :P Sorry, I couldn't just pick one. And my current fave TV show is Chuck.

Lhaythri said...

I must confess that I love "Law and Order SVU" because I think Elliot is sexy, but the best tv series I have watched in a while was "Rome" (an HBO series we got from Netflix.) There was also a series on AMC channel called "Breaking Bad," which was really good, but may not be something you can find.

I watched No Country for Old Men, which was pretty good, but my old favorites are romantic standbys, like "Spanglish" and "A Knight's Tale." I also laugh really hard anytime I watch "Malibu's Most Wanted" with Jamie Kennedy. Especially if you watch "8 Mile" first!

Tea said...

I went to see 'Forgetting Sarah Marshall', it was dreadful. My favourite TV series is Scrubs because it's absolutely hysterical and I could watch reruns all dayyyy ^_^ http://www.myspace.com/__teaandteaspoons

diana said...

Most recent movie, Bobby (was quite boring ended up crafting and distracted). Favourite television show is 30 Rock (watching on DVD, love a bit of back to back watching). I must admit Ladette to Lady is probably on par, hilarious.

Leni and Rose said...

I'm dying to see the new Indiana Jones, so in preparation, the best recent film I have watched is Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom. Love it! My current fave tv show is a toss up between Ramsays Kitchen Nightmares and Charmed.

CurlyPops said...

Ooooh I promised myself that I wouldn't enter any more giveaways because I keep winning them all and then I feel guilty but I just can't resist those fabulous prizes!
OK, I haven't seen many films lately (I blame my short attention span) so I would have to say.....Suddenly 30. Current fave tv show....another hard one hmmm....it's a toss up between Project Runway, Property Ladder, and anything with Gordon Ramsay!

CurlyPops said...

And I forgot that I'm addicted to Brothers and Sisters!

Lindsay said...

The best movie I've seen lately was Serenity (admittedly it was the third time I've watched it, but who's counting), and my favourite tv show would be Angel, although that's just on DVD, so my current favourite tv show is Ramsey's Kitchen Nightmares. Lots of fun!

Jason said...

I've been watching 'The Tudors'. That Henry! So many wives! The latest movie I saw was Prince Caspian. I love those Narnia books!

pinkpresent said...

las t night i finally saw denzel washington's "deja vu"--it was great..i finally figured out the ending when i woke up this morning (just add coffee-brain starts workin). my favorite show right now is house--and maybe bones.

Katrina James said...

Umm Movie, i finally watched candy the other day, was quite good, I did like the book better though. My fav TV show is Big Love!!! love love love this show, pity sbs moved it to Sat night, not to worry I have downloaded season 2 and plan on having a marathon.

faz said...

The best film i've watched recently is Iron Man. It really was very entertaining. You have to go in not expecting too much. It's a great film!

As for my fav TV show that's easy. I love brothers and sisters! Here's what's been happening in the show...here!.

littlebird said...

just been to see the new "Sex and the City" movie which was fab, made me laugh and cry!
i think sex and the city (or X and the city as my girl friends refer to it around their kids) is my fave tv show too but i also love E.R.

Jenaveve said...

The best film that I've seen recently would have to be 'The Constant Gardener' (Rachel Weiss and Ralph Fiennes) which I taped yonks ago and finally got around to watching. An incredibly moving and believable story.

As for TV ... I'm going with Gordon Ramsey's Kitchen Nightmares - but the UK version where he goes to local markets and cute sea-side villages, not the current US series with dodgy restaurants run by gangster types.

Suki said...

OMG! LittleBird has seen "Sex and the CIty" ????? I am so desperate now....

My fav TV is "brothers & sisters" at the moment and shameless to say... big brother....hahah....coz i am usually cooking at that time!
My fav moive at the moment is "Elizabeth the golden age". I have seen lots of crap movei lately...can't think of anything good...

carina said...

my favourite movie was NOT indiana jones! Some of the most memeorable films I have seen recently have been the darjeeling limited and alvin & the chipmunks - i cant pick a favourite!
My fav tv show is ramseys kitchen nightmares AND! flight of the conchords

ikkinlala said...

Oh dear! I haven't watched any movies lately at all - the best one I've seen recently is Happy Gilmore (by default, because it's probably the only one I've seen in the last six months or so).

My current favourite TV show is the NHL playoffs, if that counts. Otherwise it's probably House, which is one of my mom's favourites.

Emmarose said...

I haven't seen a film in yonks, but I watched Red Dwarf series 7 over the weekend.... My favourite TV show at the moment is a toss up between The IT Crowd and The Gruen Transfer, both on the ABC. Cosmic forces of the universe...... let me win!!!:)

Jo Horswill said...

Best most recent movie was 'A long Engagement' with Audrey Tatou.
Best TV show, 'The Gruen Transfer' ABC.

hokey said...

I recently re-watched my favourite french film, Taos toi. French humor is brilliant! I have 3 shows I have been watching. 1. The Sarah Silverman show - It's ok, a it silly, but my brother made me download it for him, he loves her.
2. The Mighty Boosh - VERY silly, Vince is cute! 3. 30 rock - surprisingly good, takes a few episodes to get into it.

A Spoonful Of Sugar said...

My most recent movie that I loved was "The Painted Veil" such a lovely love story set in China during a cholera epidemic. My favourite TV show at the moment is "Brothers and Sisters" - great escapism from reality with never a dull moment.

Lookability said...

Hey hey...

Best recent film I saw was Lars and the Real Girl. Hard to pick a favorite TV show... probably Lost.

:)

Alby Mangroves said...

I just watched Children Of Men recently, and it made me cry. It was so sad and beautiful, and real. TV Shows fall into categories of crap and crappier at the momnent, with the exception of Silent Witness and the Antiques Roadshow :)

Black Eyed Susie said...

I haven't seen many movies recently - the product of having a toddler and trying to start up a business. Did watch Inside Paris which I liked in a muted sort of way.

My favourite TV show is Grand Designs. I may have a slight crush on the host and it got me through those weeks of baby raising when all the days run into one!

Love your stuff by the way. I've been eyeing some things off for a while.

JustJess said...

Yet another Indiana Jones fan here... Also loved Something's Gotta Give which hubby put on for me last night on dvd (awww!) LOVE Big Love. Love it!

zoesquid said...

Movies are a rarity down my way. Im currently (as we speak) watching "Enchanted" on DVD with the kids. Favorite tv show would have to be "Enough Rope" with Andrew Denton....although I must say this year's episodes leave alot to be desired so far!!!

Hayley Lau said...

The last movie I watched was Resident Evil: Extinction. Not my choice! The partner wanted a crappy film to distract him, and I sat down for a minute and didn't get up again until it finished. I was suprised that it was crappy in a good way.

My favourite TV show at the moment is Scrubs. Hell, we ended up naming our daughter Elliot.. not really after the character, but that was where the idea came from. Funny, cheesy goodness.

Christie said...

Movie...um.... I think I will have to agree with you on Priceless, Audrey is SO sexy (& well dressed) in it & it was funny too...

Show...hands down it is BIG LOVE, love that show!

My Charlie Girl said...

oooooooo ooooooooo ooooooooo i can do this one !!!! My fav movie i just watched is Running with Scissors, and fav TV show is Alias, or maybe Grey's Anatomy, oooooooo i cant decide hehehe xxxxxxx

PS. I want another Anna Laura felt girl badge !!!! I LOVE the one i have, and the funny thing is, she has the same hair cut as me hehehe. A few people comment on that fact. And lots of people ask me about my badge, and i always say she is made by Anna Laura, a melbourne based artist, and i tell them how each badge has its own name and little story.... she is always a conversation starter :) i love her heaps, oooooo, i think i will wear her tomorrow night at this party i have to go to, cause i know NOBODY at it, i have to go with my bf.

Ok, sorry for all the verbal dioreha xxx

boxofglory said...

Ooh, free stuff... I'll enter! haha

Best film I've seen recently is probably 21. Yep, that one about counting cards and gambling! It was surprisingly good!

My current favourite TV show, is a greek soap opera called "Erotas" on the greek channel. And I'm VERY sad because the series final is next week... how will I survive without my daily soapy dose?? :(

Michelle said...

What great prizes!

Best recent film is Lars and the Real Girl. Brilliant. Really very brilliant!

Favourite TV show is Grand Designs, but also any Gilmore Girls season on DVD is splendid as well.

Shellbells said...

how can one resist this lovely concoction you are bestowing upon such a lucky person...
My favorite recent movie (being a mum of 2 toddler there are slim pickings) would have to beone I saw on DVD which was the guardian with kevin costner!!
Have many TV loves...Gordon Ramsey(f@#k me!!!), Brothers & Sisters, am loving the reruns of friends when I get a chance to watch them as it makes me feel young and carefree again, Gilmore Girls and lastly Bones!

Cass said...

I haven't seen too many movies lately at the actual cinema but have seen plenty at home with the kids. High rotation at the moment Wizard of Oz, Mary Poppins and the Sound of Music. My favourite tv show is probably the West Wing, although I'm partial to anything on the Lifestyle Channel.

Claudia said...

If DVDs revivals counts, I'm obsessed with "StarGate SG1" right now and I'm reviewing the entire series. On air, though, I laugh myself silly with "The Big Bang Theory". And the last movie I saw that really touched me was "P.S. I love you" with Hillary Swank. But the new Indiana Jones is good fun too.

Mrs Bee said...

The best movie I saw recently (for the 20th time I think) is Amélie!!
My favourite tv show is Dharma & Greg, which is being shown again here in Holland. I just love Dharma!!!

cindy said...

My most recent movie that I love is the clips of my kids doing hilarious things, like my daughters bum-up commando crawl and my son reading Hairy Maclary even though he is 3. TV show is Heroes missed it the first time and enjoying it now on cable.

Betty Jo said...

The last film I saw was "The Spiderwick Chronicles" but only parts of it as my son got a bit spooked and dashed out of the cinema!(bad,bad ogre)It seemed really good.
I try and catch "Collectors", and if there are any "Extras" or "The office" reruns I'm in!

nettie said...

My favourite movie seen recently - Truly, Madly, Deeply - yes, I've seen it recently because I watch it on DVD when I need a good cry. Best TV show - House of Eliot - again on DVD. I've just watched series 1, 2 and 3. Love those 30s fashions. (Oops, sounds like I never get out of the house - not true. Got a date with Indiana Jones tonight!)

apartmentcat said...

Hi!
One of my favourite movies is The Fifth Element and also Morons from Outer Space. They are probably the two I've seen the most anyway. My favourite TV show is Collectors, and of shows not currently running - Blackadder and Red Dwarf.
-katie.

Linda said...

hi I just found you through Curlypops showing your lovely fabric!!!! It's gorgeous! My favourite movie would be Atonement but I watched Enchanted last weekend with my girls and it is BRILLIANT soooo funny and well worth seeing a real chick flick for adults as well as a kids movie. My favourite tv show would have to be Bed of Roses!! Saturday ABC

Kim said...

The best AND most recent film I have seen is "There Will Be Blood." Intense and dark, but a great film. My favorite TV show ... well I have many but I'll say So You Think You Can Dance ... there are much better non-reality TV shows like the Office and 30 Rock and reality shows like The Amazing Race but SYTYCD is the only thing going with new episodes right now in the U.S.!

Tunet Jordaan said...

The most recent movie that I saw was the movie,"I'm not there". It is a non biographical biographical film on Bob Dylan as an artist and human being. My favourite television show at the moment is "Project Runway". I love to watch the fashion designers design and make the clothes. It is very interesting.

Kitty said...

The best movie I've seen recently is No Country For Old Men. It's a bit scary but it is just so intense. My current favourite tv shows are ladette to lady... hilarious & anything with gordon ramsey cause he can swear while giving compliments. eg: "you did f***kin great tonight". I think that is sweet

megsie said...

The film i have seen recently was "Sepember" I love aussie flicks and this one is just so moving. Amazing landscapes!
My fav tv show is Rockwiz and Lost but i don't think Lost is on anymore. Anyway it was on the same time as the stupid footy show which apparenlty must be watched each week.

Kylie said...

Dont know if I am too late...

But the best movie I have seen for a long time (the first movie I have actually been to the cinema to see in over two years) is "Made of Honour" I laughed so hard I almost chocked on my popcorn.

And fav tv show will have to be "Greys Anatomy"

Do you think I have a thing for Patrick Dempsey at the moment?

mel bomba said...

I'm terrible when it cames to movies, I never remember them but I liked 'men in black' just because of that thing they point at people to erase their memories and give then new ones, I want one! My fav TV of all time is 'iron chef'

Meri said...

Hi, have just discovered your blog, its fantastic and love your work.Best recent movie watching with my kids is Mr Magoriums Wonder Emporium- just magical in every sense of the word!! Fav TV show is a toss between House and Dress the Nation- love those 2 uk girls. Meri xx

kerstee said...

The best film I've seen lately is 'August Rush' on a plane back from Adelaide to Perth. It made me cry - in a good way! My favourite TV show is currently 'Brothers & Sisters' closely followed by 'Greys Anatomy'!

greenolive said...

I'd have to say PS I love you - I bawled all through it. The Irish landscape was beautiful too.

mizu designs said...

I just loved Juno. I know it's not exactly arthouse but sometimes I do love the films Hollywood gives a nod to. I love it that the writer used to be a pole dancer (until Juno was picked up). A TV show that I love, that's easy: Six Feet Under.

Letitia said...

I saw the australian film Home Song Stories on dvd a coupla days ago- it was a brilliant film, very tragic.
My favourite tv show at the moment is.. um I dont know! It varies as we dont get to watch tv too much. I like Denton, so try and make sure I get to see him on Monday nights!!!!
PS. Love your stuff!

Therese said...

The best movie I have seen recently was Juno. Ellen Paige was really wonderful in that film and so was the male lead whose name escapes me right now!

The best tv show just has to be sex and the city. I dont watch a lot of tv but reruns of this i could watch 24 7! they just always make me feel good and reminds me of my girlfriends.

alixandrrraaa said...

The best film i have seen recently was probably iron man. I loved robert downey jnr and it wasnt too cheesy lovely dovey.

Best tv show has got to be One Treet Hill, i know its not on in Aust anymore but its still going strong in the US aparently and they've renewed it for another season.

The best movie im yet to see im sure will be Dark Knight: Batman.. can't wait :)

cpullum said...

Saw Indiana Jones!!! On the edge of my seat!!!

ingrid said...

Oh I will join in the fun. The best film I have seen recently is Love Me If You Dare with the suprememly lovely Marion Cotillard.
My fave television program is Project Runway. I am dreading the season finale as I dont want it to end.

Emma said...

Unfortunately I have not seen any films recently, let alone a good one :(

TV shows however, my favourite though not on at the moment is 'The Mighty Boosh'. I've been watching the DVDs, and I'm still laughing out loud even though I've watched my favourite episodes over and over. And I must have something for male-duos in TV shows interspersed with songs because I've also been loving Flight of the Concords.

Ali said...

my most recent movie was "The Lion The Witch and The Wardrobe" on tv recently - great imagery!
Fave tv show would be 'Spicks and Specks' - fun :)

.girl ferment. said...

hayley said...

My favouite television show at the moment is probably Big Love, i love to stay at home with a cup of tea on a saturday night and watch it :)
what great give-aways,so gorgeous.
hayley.x

Kara Smith said...

The best film I have seen recently is "The Misfits" with Clark Gable and Marilyn Monroe. No - its not a modern one but its still fantastic and edgy.... and, the last film for both of them so its quite sad.

The best tv show has to be "Project Runway" at the moment for all us digital tv fanatics! It's fantastic and so inspiring to see fashion designers going for it so creatively!

muchlove said...

Hi!
The best movie I've seen this recently is probably Juno.
I don't know if this counts as a TV show but I'm lately addicted to watching the Tennis French Open. It's funny because last year I couldn't care less about tennis and didn't even know how the scores add up, and now I'm practically obsessed.
Apart from that, I cannot miss a single Friends rerun.

Lisa said...

I saw the latest Indiana Jones movie today, it was pretty good.
It's so clever, and I can't believe Harrison Ford can still jump around at his age. hahaha :)

My favourite TV show would probably be something like NCIS, gets me thinking alot. Making the brain tick is fun =)

Sienna said...

Hii!
Ok,
I havent seen alot of good movies recently, so I'll just say an old favourite that I watch alot...

"Labyrinth" with David Bowie.
It was made before my time,
but my sisters got me into it at a very young age.
And my favourite show right now would probably be...
"Weeds"
Oh, the wonders of conservative suburbia!
Hahahaha.

cathestrophic said...

the most recent movie i watched was "the fountain". very beautiful, moving and strange in typical Aronofsky fashion.
my favourite tv show of the moment (and my secret shame) is "ladette to lady". nothing like mindless tv to take your mind off world matters :)

pxl said...

The best movie I, ve seen recently was Tim Burton's "Sweeney Todd" and I was very dissapointed. I don't like watching TV but at the moment I'm enjoying one and only tv show on greek tv and it's called "iperoxa plasmata" witch means "wonderful creatures". It's very funny!

laura elizabeth said...

The best movie that I've seem recently is Thoroughly Modern Millie. I've seen it many a time before but I watched it again just today. And my favourite television show at the moment is a tie between The House of Eliott and Farscape.

Bianca said...

The best movie I have seen recently is "Sex in the City". I took an afternoon off to see it with my best friend and was worth it. The movie was great!
My current favourite TV show is "House".

Penny said...

My favourite current tv show is Flight of the Conchords, of course. Or else Project Runway, but that doesn't count as it's a given.

Favourite movie is tougher, I just saw Indiana Jones but I didn't like it very much, apart from Cate.

flyaway said...

I love your goodies, so it would be fun to win!!
My favorite recent movie is Juno. Very funny and sweet. I also liked "The Atonement". it was shocking and romantic--beautiful cinematography.
My favorite TV show is, by far, LOST. I am addicted. A follower. Most creative show I've seen in a long time. Very fun to watch. I also love Brothers and Sisters, Grey's Anatomy, and House.

Shelley Kommers said...

Ooo, i'm so glad i checked in here at your blog! what fantastic timing.
my favorite/most recent movie love is "Atonement" ( i saw it 2 days ago and haven't gotten it out of my mind) and my favorite TV show is "Dexter", although i cheat and rent it through Netflix, my TV doesn't actually get any shows.
man, i really hope i win. fingers crossed.

Bridget Farmer said...

woah! 79 comments! people want that prize! the best film i saw recently was ratatouille. i loved it. and the best tv program, well, i've been really enjoying ladette to lady, but it's finished now. i did love 'the insiders guide to happiness' but for some reason sbs decided to move the time to 1am. i was not happy about that and don't get to see it anymore.

Meghan said...

My favorite T.V show at the moment is Gray's Anatomy followed by Brothers and Sisters, great Sunday night viewing!!

Since I haven't been to the movies much lately, the last one we saw was Bridge to Terabithia - very lovely movie.

Linda said...

The most recent movie i've seen was 'Reign over me' (DVD) starring Adam Sandler in a semi-serious role. Very sad, but a quite quirky and funny. I'd recommend it, but just don't think it's like the usual Sandler comedy.

Fav tv show right now? I'm loving Gordon Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares. And of course 'Friends' repeats!

Bronwyn said...

Best movie recently seen is a French one called 'I Do' - funny and french, and then 'The Family Stone' with a great genuine cast of people. Fav TV is also Brothers and Sisters - love love! Ooh I'd love a badge - my fingers are crossed!

Jo said...

My best "recent" film (although on DVD now) would have to be "Death at a Funeral" - just so funny from start to finish. My current Favourite T.V. show is "How to look good naked" - nice to see some positive stuff on T.V.

Karen said...

Best film I've seen recently is The Darjeeling Limited - missed it when it was in cinemas and finally saw it on DVD. The show I'm currently obsessed about is Marshall Law, the tragically bad Australian Ally McBeal starring Lisa McCune and Allison Whyte. It's so terrible but so good! I just can't stop watching, even though it's on at 1 in the morning. I need help.

Marita said...

I always sneak a peek at Judge Judy when I can, that lace collar cracks me up. I watch series 1-7 of West Wing on rotation. Not a lot of opportunity to get to the flicks, so its DVDs like Cat in the Hat and the Wizard of Oz. Heaps of movies I wish I had seen, Gone Baby Gone looked good. I always watch the Movie Show to see a good argument between Margaret and David.

Summer Kithen Cafe said...

Most recent movie was Iron Man - only went because my son wanted to & I was so surprised - really enjoyed it! Favorite TV show - Medium!
