I am going to make a recommendation.  Do not watch Faster, that movie with The Rock in it.  It's garbage and I am filled with vitriol against it.  It was a waste of an hour and a half of my life.  I can't say a single good thing about this film, everything about it is either stupid, absurd, or incompetent.

I'm quite enjoying Her Fearful Symmetry - Audrey Niffenegger.

I'm just wondering if anyone has seen the film of The Time Traveller's Wife and whether it is a) a good film and b) comparable to the book?

I agree with horsefish. The book was great. I really hated the movie, though. That might be because I enjoyed the book so much, but I do think they left too much out of the movie. A big part of what I enjoyed about the book were the secondary characters--most of whom were left out. I thought it lost a lot without them. Also, some of their casting choices were... strange, I thought.

Gomez (in the book) was one of the most entertaining characters I had come across in years.  I was really happy to see Ron Livingston cast in the role, being a fan of Office Space (who isn't?), but when I saw the movie, Gomez was kind of meh.  Maybe not enough screen time.

Onl yon the third episode so far but Game of Thrones on HBO is quickly becoming my new favorite shows.  Pretty much it about grabs for power between 7 fictional kingdomes.  Much like meieval England, but with better characters.  and it may or may not contain dragons later.  And as we all know everything is better when you add dragons.  Well except for Beowulf that movie was a shit factory, the only good thing about that movie was the theatre had really good popcorn

Ah, I'll lend my support to this recommendation. Game of Thrones has been truly excellent thus far! Sean Bean kicks ass (because that's what Sean Bean does; I mean in LotR he was a human pincushion and still fuckin' going), and there are dire wolves, gripping plots, fascinating characters, lots o' boobage, and a couple of characters who take a level in badass every damn time we see them.

Check it the hell out.

I just finished Tolkien's The Silmarillion and it also had dragons and was pretty darn epic.  If you like dragons and want to get involved in an entire new cosmology, I recommend The often underappreciated Silmarillion.

When you tie in altogether the Silmarillion with the Hobbit, and the Lord of the Rings, you realize that there aren't many authors like Tolkien who would put even half the amount of effort and heart he did for his work.

I highly recommend that if you liked the ASOIAF/Game of Thrones, you would really like The Once and Future King. It is an Arthurian fantasy novel but it really is T.H White's medium to show his own personal view of the ideal society. But don't let that deter you. It does not have the same romanticism of Arthurian tales but it is absolutely smashing and is a fantastic read.

I reommend books from Charles Bukowski

Bukowski is my favorite writer atm.... I'm actually reading a book with lots of short stories.
Erections, Ejaculations, Exhibitions and General Tales of Ordinary Madness

It's awesome... I really like the guy. It's down to earth stuff, like if I was just talking to him in a bar. It's incredibly filthy though, I can understand if some people don't dig that but I just love it.

This may seem pop teenagery but I enjoyed reading John Green's works.  For being written in such straight prose I believe they were well written and touching.  I read both Looking for Alaska and The Fault in our Stars after having them recommended to me by friends.

Nothing.

It's a little hard to find but it's a great comedy from the director of Cube and Splice. Basically it's about 2 guys whose lives are so shit they basically wish everything away. All that is left is them, thier house and an endless white void. What they do with this is the really funny part as they fuck around, explore and tear thier friendship apart. It's great :)

So I just rewatched the trailer posted up there.  Forgot how funny it was.  That man was a genius. 

By the way, the little thing at the end of the trailer's true - during the first run of the movie, latecomers wouldn't be seated.

So, I followed a very old link from a very old page to a webcomic that's been finished for about 6 years, called Bruno.  It ran from 1996(!) to 2007, eleven years, six days a week.

I read the first year that evening.  I've read three more in the two days since then.  I'm not getting any work done...

The artwork is fantastic, right from the beginning.  Some of the characters are (artistically) caricatures, but they are all witty, mostly likeable people that remind you of someone you know.  The central figure, despite the name, is a young woman - very intelligent, full of angst, and from what I've seen so far, probably bipolar.  The comic revolves around her, her experiences, and the people she meets/lives with/loves/misses over the years.  It also is a real-time comic, so every halloween there's a costume party, the seasons change, etc. 

If you like smart banter (this is the QC forum, isn't it?) You'll love Bruno. 

The two links I'm providing are the original homepage, from which you can access the main archives, and another page I found is where the author (Chris Baldwin) is re-running the strip.  He's about 2 1/2 years into it, so there's another good 8 years or so to go... one advantage is that he's cleaning up the images as he goes along. 

More people should know about this.  Give it a look!

So I recently played "Spec Ops: The Line" and it really fucked with my head. But in a good way that shows that the medium is maybe maturing just a little bit.

Without spoiling the whole thing, it was basically advertised as another Call of Duty clone but it ended up being so much more than that. It's very reminiscent of "Apocolypse Now," only there is an extra, major layer of satire of military COD-type games, but also of gaming in general and what the culture thinks of as "heroism."

The gameplay is really nothing to write home about, but that ends up playing into the game's narrative. The actual gameplay isn't bad per se, it's just nothing special. But that's not really the reason that you keep playing. It's the way that the story subverts stereotypes and gamer expectations.

It is also very disturbing and even though I was sure that I would be too jaded for the game to have an impact on me, it did really mess with my head and it stayed in my head for a long time after I played it. Without spoiling it, it gets very meta about half way into the game.

I can't really adequately talk about the game without spoiling it because what makes it great are the narrative elements of it. But it is definitely worth playing if you want to see something new and innovative in how games handle story telling.

OR you could just read Heart of Darkness, or watch Apocalypse Now, cause it's the same thing. Not saying it's not good, just throwing that out there.

Recommendation of the now: Bodacious Space Pirates, winner of my prestigious 2012 "Anime that Badly Needs a Rename" award is a fairly awesome anime about space, and pirates. Really if you need much more then that you're beyond help. Also the OP features the unholy merging of an idol group and a former guitarist from Megadeth which is really worth a listen just for the spectacle http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UZmNRLvycNQ.

Yes, because every form of media is the exact same and doesn't present things in different context that appeals to different kinds of people and appeals to different tastes due to any number of reasons such as generational and experience differences while consuming the media.

One of my favorite book series of all time is The Bartimaeus Trilogy. Funny as hell, all with a detailed, awesome, and surprisingly serious storyline. Go read it.

(before you start, keep in mind it's set in its own world. It's not actually at in ours, like it may seem for a decent amount of the first book.)

I will suggest watching Orange is the New Black : Its based on prison life of women. How they live their everyday life and what problems they have to go through. By they way i have put it it may sound boring as i am not that good in explaining but try watching a trailer of this series its really good.

I would suggest reading Orange is the New Black, as it is the memoir of a woman who actually was in prison rather than a dramatised series inspired by that memoir. The show is entertaining and not outrageously far off in my limited experience of USA prisons, but the book is far better. I actually gave my copy to a girl on the train who was expressing rather ill-informed views of prison, so I need to buy a new one.

Still can't believe they missed out L.E. Modesitt - his books are abstract but good, I keep learning something new everytime I re-read his books.

I'm sure I've recommended this before but I can't help but think it's worth mentioning again.

Utopia

If you miss that bit of Game of Thrones where the life expectancy of any character simply isn't guaranteed, Utopia
If you miss that bit of Game of Thrones that has Ygritte in it, Utopia
If you enjoy a well crafted bit of conspiracy theory, Utopia
If you like slowly emerging character development without too much a distracting amount of exposition, Utopia
If you are entertained by brilliant, experimental and unfettered British Drama, Utopia

Basically watch this, it's awesome and the theme music is a little addictive too.

Hello!

I'd like some recommendations for children's books in english, for a tiny person how is three, soon to be four. He's also dutch. He's interested.

Seriously, we're not pushing him.

Anyway, anyone know any good titles?

Two by Quint Buchholz: "Sleep Well, Little Bear," and "The Collector of Moments." The stories (especially the latter) are great, and the illustrations (again, especially the latter) are amazing. Anything by William Joyce, but especially his older stuff. Raymond Briggs ("The Man" is a personal favorite). David Wiesner's stuff is also fun -- some of it, like "Tuesday" and "Sector 7," is wordless, which lets you and your little person decide where the story goes.

Daniel Pinkwater's Tooth Gnasher Superflash, The Big Orange Splot, The Wuggie Norple Story, and pretty much anything else.  A lot of his books are a little older than the kid (mostly aimed at ~7-12 year olds), but those ones are younger.
