I don't have any favourites that I could name off of the top of my
head right now, but I do like dystopian novels, and anything of the
But, a notable book that I'd like to give credit to is 'Catcher in
the Rye'. A high-school classic that holds both a memorable
character and an interesting metaphor!
Here's a list of beautifully crafted movies (if not, ones that I
thoroughly enjoyed watching) that, if you hadn't heard of them, you
can rent them and check them out. There's bound to be one on here
that you haven't seen before, and hopefully, it'll intrigue you
enough so that you do want to see it:
Mother (2009): A Korean drama about a mother involved in trying to
solve a murder case when her son is taken into custody as a
The Illusionist(2010): An illusionist meets a young woman in
Scotland, and they begin to form a sort of father-daughter bond.
Their paths intertwine, creating an interesting journey that ensues
after their encounter with each other!
Pacific Rim(2013): You've heard enough about this movie from the
adverts. I don't think I need to explain this one very much.
The Heat(2013): Again, you've probably heard enough about this
But, if you're wondering why I really like this movie, it's because
of the chemistry between Bullock and McCarthy. McCarthy is known
for playing stupid, aggressive characters, but combined with the
stiff, up-tight FBI agent Bullock played, they make a fascinating
duo. Besides, this film had me in stitches from
Drive(2011): This stylized as fuck film features Ryan Gosling (one
for the ladies, haha) as the quiet and calm, but ultimately
intimidating protagonist in an action drama. His neighbour's
husband (or partner, whatever) gets him into some serious trouble
with a gang (I think)
The action is really fast-paced, and you sure as hell know when it
Antichrist(2009)" A film about a couple who go to their cabin in a
remote, wooded area to relieve the stress of losing their
first-born and try to improve their marriage. However, things go
from bad to worse almost immediately.
This movie is actually the first movie that left me with a
disgusted feeling for hours after watching it, and it's so uniquely
shot that it's hard to say that it has any flaws. I definitely
recommend this if you like scary, fucked up horror films.
Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead(2006): Not all of these are
beautiful, artsy, and/or insightful.
There is no proper way to describe this movie; all I'm going to say
for the meantime is that if you enjoy intentional film flaws,
intentional bad acting, and intentional cheesy gore, then this
movie is for you. It's hilarious, and simply just brilliant.
Cashback: This movie. This bloody movie. I love it.
It's beautifully crafted, with very few flaws, and overall conveys
a great message.
It discusses capturing beauty, and the beauty of women.
The Rabbi's Cat: A cat learns to speak supposedly from eating the
household parrot, then expresses his desire to convert to
Plenty stylized when it needs to be, politically correct,
self-aware, and overall hilarious. If your knowledge of religious
history is limited, you probably won't understand the lot of it,
since it is the essence of this film, but still, this film does
touch some sensitive subjects that everyone enjoys. However, it
does it in such a way that won't offend you, and that's one of the
things I love about this movie. The way it plays out is kind of
weird, though, but it adds to its niceness.
(I'll add more to this. In the meantime, I'm going to go out for
I don't watch enough television shows to name my favourites.
I'm open to all genres of music, but I definitely prefer swing,
jazz, and some alternative above all else.
If you want artists, here:
Sammie Davis Jr.
Kasabian (yes, the one with the asshole singer)
Aesop Rock (such a contrast to the rest...)
For food, I currently don't have a favourite.
I really like Italian cuisine, if that helps!
