    Recommended...reading, listening, viewing, etc.

    Alright, I don't know if this will be a good thread or not (I like the idea, that's why I'm trying to start it) but I was thinking that people could put lists of some of the stuff that they're into, or finished and would recommend to another person. I'm always searching for new things to do, so this might be good.
    And try to be respectful to others opinions too.

    I'll start

    Movies: Young Frankenstein (It's actually a comedy)

    Music: Angels and Airwaves (very good, kind of like U2, but with Tom from blink-182 as singer). Wolfmother (for anyone who likes an older rock sound, from a new band)

    Literature: The Hand of Thrawn Triology, The Hand of Thrawn Duology (Star Wars books by Timothy Zahn). Ender's Game and other related titles by Orson Scott Card. Maus, a graphic novel by Art Speigleman (true story of his father growing up as a jew and being captured by Nazi's, very unique character representation, the mice are jews, the cats are Nazis.) And INVINCILBLE, a comic book by Robert Kirkman - probably my favorite ongoing comic.

    Sorry, I know it was long, but I think this could be cool. Let me know.

    You mean, the Thrawn Trilogy (Heir to the Empire, Dark Force Rising, and The Last Command).

    Movies: The Star Wars Saga (Attack of the Clones and The Empire Strikes back being my favorites out of the group), Stargate. Pirates of the Caribbean (The Curse of the Black Pearl and Dead Man's Chest), Jurassic park trilogy, Ghostbusters, and many others.

    Music: Orchestra music (mainly John Williams), Linkin Park, Bon Jovi, Deep Purple, Metallica, and hype songs (that are usually affiliated with sports) such as Eye of the Tiger and The Final Countdown.

    Literature: Science Fiction and Fantasy Books. Books from the Star Wars Saga (I'm a Star Wars guy, obviously. Vector Prime, Star by Star, and the Thrawn Trilogy are among my favorites), Ender's series, Chronicles of Narnia, Dragonkeeper, and others.

    Yes they are awesome! I read the first six books and haven't had time to start the next. Definately the best fantasy series I've ever read, way better and easier to understand than Lord of the Rings. All the WoT books are really long, but it goes by pretty fast, so don't let the length scare you. Robert Jordan is my fav. author


    A good movie I just saw was Bus-147...its a true story about a bus that got hijacked. What's so awesome is that ALL the footage from the movie is from news cameras so there is no acting whatsoever, its pretty awesome. Only bad thing is that its in Portugese and you have to read the english subtitles, but its a great documentary
