Books - I'm a big fan of good history (especially with a lot of
conflict) and also anything with some fighting in it. I love
reading about heroes and noble deeds, always think about how
awesome it would be to live in an age where people actually
regarded honor, loyalty, righteousness, brotherhood and chivalry as
virtues and values...my favorite book of all time is Romance of the
Romance of the Three Kingdoms, The Water Margin, The Investiture of
the Gods, Legend (most of David Gemmell books), Lord Of The Rings,
A Song of Ice and Fire series, Macbeth, Gates of Fire, Jin Yong and
Gu Long wuxia series.
Movies - kind of the same as the books I read. I like movies with
strong friendship themes and good action (lots of fighting!). I
like comedies that have genuine ideas, I'm a little tired of the
crude, overly excessive gross and dirty language they have these
days, I guess things can't be funny anymore without dropping the
F-bombs or being excessively gross ... Blues Brothers, The Big
Lebowski, Ghostbusters, Planes, Trains and Automobiles, 40 Year Old
Virgin, Old School, Unforgiven, A Better Tomorrow, The Killer, The
Godfather, Heat, Road to Perdition, Predator, Aliens, Terminator 2,
Braveheart, The Lord of the Rings film trilogy.
I used to watch a lot of Hong Kong 'Wuxia' TV series, a.k.a fantasy
sword fighting kung fu shows when I was younger. My most treasured
shows are the Romance of the Three Kingdoms DVD box set, Band of
Brothers, The Pacific and now Game of Thrones.
Beyond is my favorite band of all time! I'm a rock fan in general,
I have 3 classic rock stations, one jazz and 2 generic pop/rock on
my car radio.
