Favourites

Know a good movie or book, a great series or music that you think I’ll like? Please let me know 🙂
Below, my current favourites (incomplete, I’ll add more) in alphabetical order.

Books

  • Audrey Niffenegger’s The Time Traveler’s Wife
  • Jan Siegel’s trilogy: Prospero’s Children, The Dragon Charmer and The Witch Queen. (I read these in Dutch and for a while thought that it was by a Dutch author, since Jan is a very common Dutch men’s name.)
  • Terry Pratchett’s The Colour of Magic and The Light Fantastic
  • Terry Pratchett’s Strata

Games

  • Curse of Monkey Island

Movies

  • 12 Angry Men
  • 50 First Dates (What can I say, I’m a sucker for a plothole-filled handkerchief-devouring feelgood-movie.)
  • BenX
  • Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
  • Finding Neverland (2004)
  • Forrest Gump (1994)
  • Girl, Interrupted (1999)
  • Ikiru – Recommended by Sander. Took me a long time to watch it, but I did watch it! >:P
  • La vita è bella (1997) – Thanks to Lennert!
  • Le Fabuleux Destin d’Amelie Poulain
  • Pan’s Labyrinth
  • The Prestige
  • The Truman Show (1998) – Remember seeing it on a bus ride on an outing with my secondary school.
  • What Dreams May Come

Series
Sitcoms

  • Friends
  • Merlin
  • The Big Bang Theory

Anime

  • Trigun

Music
Artist ( {Song I Like “,”}* )

  • Florence and The Machine (My Boy Builds Coffins, Girl with One Eye)

Comics

  • Elfquest. I only like comics in which Wendy Pini is still one of the lead artists. After that, both story and artwork went downhill. All-time best is the initial quest – so comics 1 through 20 – and Dream Time. Read all of them for free at elfquest.com

    Edit: I even discovered some issues that I hadn’t read before. “Full Circle” is now among my favourite Elfquest issues, the others being the Dreamtime arc and Hidden Years 9.5.
