You really should. My memory's hazy, since it was a while ago, but it's really gory and all. And it's send a powerful message. I just don't remember what the message was. ;

:c What's with like all movies having to be gory nowadays? :ccccc... They are either gory or crummy chickflicks.. or mind-numbingly stupid comedies.

>_> I rather watch gory though.

And is it weird I often like children's books more than adult books? Kids books just happen to seem more imaginative to me.

Kid as in young adult?

And V for Vendetta's pretty old, isn't it? But yeah, most films nowadays are alike. Still, can't wait to see the new Resident Evil movie. Milla Jovovich is hot. C:

Just finished the Red Pyramid series, while the topic is up. I love Rick Riordan's work.
I'm a silhouette, asking every now and then
Is it over yet? Will I ever feel again?
I'm a silhouette, chasing rainbows on my own
But the more I try to move on, the more I feel alone
So I watch the summer stars to lead me home.

Vampires >_> But.. it's not that crummy twilight bs for preteen girls. It came out way before twilight.

But a guy who gets turned into a vampire and travels with a circus.

I've read all of the Demonata series, and honestly, you should too. They're better then The Saga, imo. I also read two of the four Saga of Larten Crepsley books, those are okay, provide a nice back story to Larten. Kinda depressing, though. D=


Oh, vampires and vampaneze. Can't forget the purple blood suckers.

If we're talking about books. I am seriously excited for the new sequel to The Shining that Stephen King just announced a release date for. The Shining was one of my favorite books that I read in high school and so I'm definitely psyched for this sequel.

You know what was a good book? Nineteen Minutes by Jodi Picoult. Insanely captivating, it's about a kid who goes on trial for shooting up his school.

I seriously dislike Jodi Picoult's themes. She is a great writer (I loved her run on the Wonder Woman comic!), but I just don't like what she writes about. It's dramatic to be dramatic I feel like. I just didn't really enjoy the books I tried to read by her.

Kane Chronicles? Ick. If you don't mind me asking, how old are you?

Not that I think there's any particular page at which a book should be considered "too young," I just think Riordan in general writes in a super simplistic and boring way that mostly only kids appreciate.

Honestly, I'm not a big reader. =\ At least not of fiction. I've got loads of theological and mythological books, but it's for my own hobbies. I read The Hunger games. They're alright.. LOTR was pretty good. Though, I did enjoy the movies a lot more. =P

I was not a fan of Percy Jackson. I saw the movie and liked it so I read the first book. I was not impressed at all. Didn't even bother reading more of them. But Harry Potter, LOTR, Hunger Games, Enders Game, etc. Love those kind of books....even if some of them can be extremely juvenile.

LOTR and The Hobbit is one of those MUST READ classics if you like fantasy novels. Just like Enders Game is a must if you love Sci Fi. It's the classics yo.


I don't know why I just typed "yo". I promise to never do it again. EVER.

Yeah.. don't do that. hahaha.

I've heard great things about 50 Shades of Grey, anyone else?

Also, does anyone else get annoyed with the way popularizing things work? Like, The Hunger games. It's really not all that great. Though good; not great. But sooo many people FREAK over it. It's stupid and annoying.

50 Shades of Grey is Twilight fan fiction erotica that was repurposed into a novel....so no...I haven't heard good things about it.

Whereas, freaking out over the wonderfully talented Lights is perfectly appropriate and rational!

A) Of course it is, Lights is amazing.

B) I think that these fads take on a life of their own and I hate when people jump onto a bandwagon (Twilight, Hunger Games, 50 Shades of Grey) not because they are interested, but just simple for the fact that people are talking about it to no end. I usually don't take interest in these types of fads unless a friend that I know has a reliable taste tells me to check something out.
