Movies tend to be a big part of my conversational topics. Everyone
likes movies, but I really do. Not just watching - but learning
about how they're made, behind the scenes stuff, different versions
(collecting rarities) and deleted scenes and commentaries and so
on. The list below is not exhaustive, of course... but I've found
myself drawn to girls on here based on matching their movie lists,
so maybe some specifics would help.
The Back to the Future trilogy is my standby for top of the list. I
like many comedies (tough to pick examples), medium sci-fi
(Terminator/T2, some Star Treks, Star Wars IV-VI [not really sci-fi
but...], finally got around to Blade Runner, various classics...),
Disney-and-related (Aladdin, TLM, BATB, the classic princess triad,
etc.; much of Pixar such as The Incredibles, Toy Story trilogy;
Tron, Flight of the Navigator, The Brave Little Toaster...), movies
about movies, bad/cheesy movies and MST3K, certain Bond
(particularly Roger Moore, but also including Casino Royale '67),
some classic musicals, general "dramas" and stuff that just screws
with reality (Being John Malkovich, The Truman Show, Waking Life),
RHPS, and... special mention for Amelie
, because everyone mentions that.
It's almost in a class of its own, which I think explains why no
substitutes ever seem to be listed instead, but it is certainly
worthy of inclusion, and I do adore it.
TV is very close thematically. I have about as many shows in my
collection by volume as movies. The Simpsons
earn a special spot. Stuff on
Fox and Comedy Central makes up much of my viewing; many ill-fated
comedies line my shelves. I will avoid a list here, but I'll be
happy to take questions. Here's a big exception: sports. I already
don't care much for them, stop preempting things plz.
Books: I don't read as much literature as I ought to (I pore
through a lot of nonfiction material online, though). Surprise,
surprise, most of what I have is humor (Hitchhiker's trilogy, for
Music: I'm a little funny about that. I enjoy many things, but what
I choose tends to be whole chunks by the same artist and not a list
of 50 trendy bands. That said, no joking, the top of the list would
probably be Weird Al, They Might Be Giants, Parliament (and
Clinton-related). Upbeat, bassy, and fun are pretty good criteria.
I also enjoy scores and soundtracks, and have recently been on a
bit of a kick of discovering rarities from Ace of Base. No
Food: Eh. I like familiar stuff that's probably bad for me. I
haven't been exposed to a lot of real international/ethnic stuff,
but while I'm willing to try it, I do the best when I'm prepared in
advance, so I don't freak out and just choose something safe. If
you like it, that's what I suggest.
