Jurassic Park! My first true favourite movie! :D

Then later I discovered the likes of Terminator 2, Total Recall, and Back to the Future.

I only found LotR last year when my sister made me watch the DVD of TTT. lol

In books, I'm a Michael Crichton fan. But I don't read much now, besides SW.

On TV, I like a bit of Stargate, and some other stuff that I haven't seen for years... *wonders what happened to it all*

Best film I've seen? The Day the Earth Caught Fire. This is what happens when the person I babysit for doesn't come back til 3 in hte morning - I end up watching BBC's "like anyone's watching at this time of night" schedules, which include a lot of SciFi.

Anyway, it's black and white and bloody scary. Brilliant ending. Possibly going to be remade soon, though maybe under a less 60s title.

Shows:

Buffy (hey, it's fantasy with SF elements!)

Enterprise, sometimes.

Books:

anything I can get my hands on. Special love for Isaac Asimov. Nostalgic affection for LotR (and stubborn pride for reading the Silmarililion). More SF than Fantasy orientated these days, though still reading trashy vampire novels that I'm not even sure I enjoy (Laurell K Hamilton, Anne Rice etc).

Whooo!

Is the movie of Sphere any good, do you know? I saw it on DVD and was tempted to buy it...

And I still haven't seen Timeline yet... did you see it?

It's okay. I wouldn't buy it on DVD unless it was very cheap. It's kinda cool, though.

Sphere is alright. It could have been better. Parts of the story was skipped, but the special effects and such, help you envision the book a little better.

Timeline as a movie by itself was pretty cool

Timeline as a movie off of a book, was HORRID. Donner and that so called script writer completely butchered the book.

i enjoyed The Sphere. of course, Sam Jackson was in it, and i never read the book, so i really have nothing to compare to. :D

my favorite series aside from Star Wars would have to be Dune. the first Dune is one of those books you read for the last 100 pages or so when chaos breaks loose. mmmm......carnage. :D

I've been thinking of reading the Dune books... and maybe the Myst one.

Of course, I should finish the NJO first. :roll:
