I am an official film buff, since I have the Film Buff card from the MFA. I love ( almost) anything by the Coen Brothers, Woody Allen, Kurosawa, Hitchcock, Alexander Payne, Robert Rodriguez, Wes Anderson, .... Fave movies include No Country for Old Men, Dr. Strangelove, Citizen Kane, Wizard of Oz, Strangers On a Train, Slumdog Millionaire, Fargo, Seven Samurai, True Grit ( the newer Coen Bros. version), The Lives of Others (German), and lots and lots of others. I always check out the latest action flicks.
Shows-- I like live theater. I enjoy Stages, Main Street and Catastrophic Theater stuff especially. I go to NYC sometimes for my Broadway fix. I like Miller Outdoor Theater and Discovery Green shows, often go to Cezanne for jazz and Brazilian music. I usually get seasons tickets to HGO. Really enjoy opera and chamber music. I go to a lot of shows over at Rice, also Baker Institute lectures (but don't know if those count as "shows").
