Favorite tv :
"TV is like taking black spray plant to your third eye." However I'm guilty of a few reality shows here and there.
Favorite movies :
Another subject completely on the flipside of television as I really, REALLY enjoy movies. Most will say that I have a wonderful taste in movies after watching one film I recommend and then will turn around and say I have a horrible taste in movies after watching another one. I'm guilty of being all over the place. I like anything that can fold your brain inside out and make you question all living material and the entire purpose through irony, drama, mathematics, and anything else that could be considered likeable by trying just a bit too hard. After watching THAT movie though, I could go right into some epic fantasy and become engrossed in that story and have dreams later on of me running around in battle armor saving the world. From there I could go enjoy the sappiest love story about what happens when true love is meant to be and the obstacles that initially destroy it are only the foundations that are meant to make it last forever (and will most likely cry my eyes out). As for all the rest? Yes I love those too. I do not judge ANYTHING on genre, only specific and singular material. I feel that I can learn just about as much from movies that I hate than I can with movies that I love.
