There’s literally nothing wrong with Gladiator; especially when it’s understood that it is not an action movie with some drama, but rather a drama with great action sequences. It’s a Ridley Scott film; the acting, music, sets, stunts, props, and costumes are perfect, with a truly satisfying story.

I find that with movies like this, the first viewing is just introductory; its the repeated viewings where things really come together and the movie achieves it’s potential. With the sea of junk that spews forth from the entertainment industry, it’s nice to know that every once in a while, we get something worth watching over and over again. Especially with a clear-cut good guy and bad guy.

On the television side: Justified.

A U.S. Marshal dealing with criminals in the backwoods of Kentucky. Nowhere else on television are there characters and dialogue like this. I watch this once a year and it just keeps getting better.

JUSTIFIED — “Fugitive Numer One” — Episode 611 (Airs Tuesday, March 31, 10:00 pm e/p) — Pictured: Timothy Olyphant as Deputy U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens — CR: Prashant Gupta/FX
