You can read on (if you want; I assume the balloon head photo didn't put you off so far!)
I like Phillip Pullman's His Dark Materials Trilogy, I have a massive soft spot for Harry Potter as well. C.S. Lewis' Chronicles of Narnia is always fun (ignoring the huge Christian overtones) I read a lot of plays, but Max Brooks and zombies are always fantastic. I'm quite happy to read anything once though.
Movies: much like my books I like fantasy and adventure with the odd splash of dystopia thrown in. Logan's Run is a classic, as is the original H.G. Wells The Time Machine. George Romero, Back To The Future, Shane Meadows and Takeshi Kitano are some favourites too.
Waiting for Godot has to be my favourite play of all time. But to be fair there is just too much to list and you're probably already bored.
In that order.
You're fun and up for a chat and maybe a chilled out meet.
