Of all these, I can really only recommend four, maybe five, with any strong conviction.

Conversations with Other Women
Black Swan
The Social Network
The Vicious Kind
I am Love

This year I intend to see more new releases on a regular basis.

Television

These are the television series of which I've seen every episode. Some are shows that are still running of which I've seen every episode until now and plan to continue until the series is completed. Most of them are embarrassing but there are a few that I am proud to say I know in their entirety.

The West Wing
Lost
Friends
Freaks and Geeks
Arrested Development
Scrubs
Dirty Sexy Money
Sex and the City
Laguna Beach [I think this has to be the most embarrassing]
Community
Modern Family
Shameless
Dexter
Grey's Anatomy
Gossip Girl
The Office (USA)
Entourage

Then there are the shows I was really into and thought I'd watch every episode of, but then abandoned 3-5 seasons in. Or shows I started watching late and never caught up with. Etc.

Rescue Me
24
House
ER
That 70's Show

The finished series I am currently watching.

The Sopranos

And finally, the shows I will watch, in order, after my current series.

The Wire
Twin Peaks
Mad Men
Six Feet Under
Weeds
Breaking Bad

All of this to say, I always think of myself as someone who doesn't watch television, and yet here I am with this list. This list that doesn't even include the randoms shows I get into for a few months and forget about. Consume consume consume. At least I've got a handle on some major pop culture references.
