People are attracted to easy. That's why they love lies. The truth is hard and so is the person who speaks it.
As far as movies I've liked Man on Fire, Idiocracy, Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children, Grave of the Fireflies, Ong-Bak(the first movie and only the first movie), Casshern(the live action movie), and all the Harry Potter movies(saw the last one in 3D) to name a few that come to mind.
As far as books I'd say my childhood favorite is a fantasy series called the Death Gate Cycle, and as an adult I've read The True Believer and 1984.
As far as Las Vegas shows I love Carrot Top, Blue Man Group, Phantom of the Opera, Mystere, Viva Elvis and KA.
