Withdraw with an injury and some will say 'wimp'. Play on with an injury
and others will say the injury is just an excuse for losing.

It's painful when your fave loses. You should know better than anyone no?

Breaks a second time. Leads 4-1.

Well done Sam, now don't choke like you did in the 3rd set breaker, alright?

Maybe Murray took it easy in 4th to save himself for 5th? I think he'll
come out hard early & if Sam stands up to him it could be over?

If Querrey lowered his serving intensity one bit, you would have seen Murray running like a rabbit retrieving balls and winning the match. Good kick in Andy's butt. Go Querrey.

It will get worse when Konta loses to Venus tomorrow!
He will be inconsolable when Fed beats Raonic.
He will start foaming at the mouth when Fed wins the SF,
He will start tearing his clothes, pulling his hair and foaming at the
mouth when Fed wins #19.
That's the time to call the Suicide Watch people.

Well the films I list below DO NOT fit your viewing profile... Or maybe
you are a big fan of really old films (in which case not seeing 'Safety
Last!' would be truly odd since it's one of the most relevant films from
that era.). So it just doesn't make much sense.
 
Well, I don't think you picked numbers randomly though, there is a trend
on not seeing art films and critics' favourites.
 
Let's assume you did it entirely fair...
The list still has 50% of titles from year 1990+ and 35% from 2000+
That's a lot imo. Many of the year 2000+ titles are films I never heard
of and I think relatively insignificant titles which will be soon
forgotten and replaced by new unimportant new titles. So my point is
that this still tells us mostly that you have seen more new titles than I.
...I'm sure that I have seen at least more 80s, scifi and probably 70s
titles as well...those are the 'genres' I have always liked. Also very
likely art films and important classics which I have watched recently a lot.
 
But if you want to compare your film expertise to mine on various
categories... knock yourself out...

Still a bit odd selection to see over more relevant titles which you
haven't seen. In general I would expect people who have seen all films
listed above to be massive fans of 30s and 40s & art films... while not
watching likes of Sausage Party at all.
 
The Phantom Carriage? Really?
 
You didn't comment on any film... tell us what you thought about:
Intolerance
Children of Paradise
The Best of Youth (which I have considered watching for some time)

Saw it years ago, on TV. And damn happy I didn't pay for it.

Well it seemed that you wanted to compete against C1, so it doesn't make
sense...

The current number of 823 is titles I've rated on IMDB, seen a bit more.
But the rate I'm currently going through 'important' (read critically
acclaimed) titles, might get to 900 soon-ish. Or maybe I never will
since there were quite a few obscure new titles of which I have little
interest. Hardly watching at all new titles currently. Probably more at
Oscar nominations time.

Murray limping. Not a good sign. Couldn't blame Querrey for taking full
advantage.

Sure it was immature, but hey he wears his heart on his sleeve & was

Muller deserves a punch for the Nadal match.

Certainly is.
 
Wonder if this will be a never ending 5th set? Sam will be fresher than
either guy in semi.

6-1 to Cilic.
 
The h2h with Querrey is 4-0 to Cilic, but that includes 2 marathon 5
setters at Wimbledon.
