So what's your question darknut? :(

Anyway, here's mine: for animation movies, do you like 2D like in the classic animations? Or do you like 3D better?

also screw 3d, i like my movies flat

It was/is probably an outright lie, and certainly bullshit to some degree, though it is very common: "I am not addicted! I can quit any time I want, I just don't want to right now."

What was/is the most and least fun drugs you've ever been addicted to?

The answer to both is caffeine. Am currently addicted and not in a position to change.

What is your favorite drink, alcoholic or not?

Princess Bride. I've seen it so many times that I can't even imagine how I would react to it now, were I to be seeing it for the first time.

Or maybe, A Clockwork Orange.

What's your favorite Stanley Kubrick movie?

I think the only one I've actually seen in its entirety is A Clockwork Orange. I should really get around to watching more.

Which Stanley Kubrick movie should I watch next (other than A Clockwork Orange)?

The only movie of which I've seen both the original and the remake (that I can remember) is Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. I thought both were fairly good.

Are there any movies you've enjoyed more than the work (book, TV show, etc.) they're adapted from?

Hell yeah. I quite like the Tom Clancy movies (hunt for red October, patriot games, etc.). So I read patriot games. I read it to the end, in the misguided belief that it couldn't be that patronizingly awful all the way through. I was wrong. Arse gravy of the first water, from start to finish.

Rogue Squadron By Michael A. Stackpole. I spent a lot of my youth reading bad Star Wars books. If I didn't read those, I could have spent time reading other (perhaps not better, but at least more diverse) books. So my choice counts as a symbol for those bad books, but it's also the first in a long series, so if I didn't read that one, I would have avoided reading that whole series.

What book do you most wish you have read, but don't want to actually go to the effort of actually reading?

The LotR trilogy. I've been stuck on book two for four months. I kind of like it and want to finish it but then I don't. Bleh. One reason might also be that I just want to get all the Discworld books and spend a week doing nothing but reading them.

Do you like the Discworld books?

"And Another Thing...", the latest Hitchhiker's Guide book written by Eoin Colfer. And this disappointment goes double:
First, I LOVE the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. I mean, anybody who doesn't is a Communist, so how couldn't I? And I really enjoyed Eoin Colfer's "Artemis Fowl" series. I gobbled the books up when I was a lil' one. So when an author I love takes on a series I love and comes out with something so... eeehhh... it's really sad.
And maybe I'm just crazy, I know a fair number of people liked the book. It just really fell flat for me. It was taking everything great from the old books, but it didn't add anything really new. I don't know. Opinions.

To stay on the book topic, If you could have a sequel to any book at all, what would it be, and what would it be about?
Look at me still talking when there's SCIENCE to do!
