Films: Probably my favourite film ever made is The Princess Bride.
It's funny, has some fantastic characterisation and some beautiful
swordplay. The book is also fantastic, but in a slightly different
way. In general, I also like any film with Ellen Page in (e.g. Whip
It or Juno) or with Heath Ledger (e.g. A Knight's Tale,
Books: This is much easier to do by author, right? Douglas Adams,
without question. It's really easy to own all his books because
he's a slow writer, and only managed eight of them. Although The
Hitch Hiker's Guide To The Galaxy his best known series, Dirk
Gently's Holistic Detective Agency is, without doubt, his best
book. People should also read Last Chance To See which is basically
a book about endangered animals that's really enjoyable. Instead of
just making you feel guilty it makes you feel we're all part of an
amazing world that we have to be careful with.
Music albums: My tastes are quite eclectic and cover many genres,
depending on my mood. For rock, it's Iron Maiden who still know how
to write a good melody; for pop Robbie Williams because I'm a
sucker for a cheesy lyric and an anthemic tune, and for orchestral
get me some How To Train Your Dragon or Pirate's Of The Caribbean
TV Series: Firefly was one of most awesome series ever, until it
got cancelled. If you've watched it you'll know what I mean.
Computer Games: I work in the games industry, so picking favourites
is really, really, REALLY hard. Portal is the best game ever made,
I think. The writing is so tight and the gameplay perfectly paced.
I've also played all the Assassin's Creed games and most of the
DLCs. I love driving games. Race Driver: Grid is a favourite. The
other cars race realistically, blocking and trying proper
overtaking and there's a good variety of cars to keep everything
