I think my favourite film would have to be lord of the rings, its just epic, no they can't just get the eagles to take them to mount doom! I also enjoy SciFi like star wars, the fifth element and alien.
Other films I like include: the departed, gangs of new York, the godfather. The ending to the Shawshank redemption never fails to make me smile.
As far as books goes, I challenge you to find a funnier book than the hitch hiker's guide the galaxy. Also been reading the light bringer series by brent weeks which is awesome!
