  1. No Star Wars, you say? Well sir, that's playing dirty Rick and Morty is pretty high on the list of re-watches MCU movies (I'm particularly fond of the Infinity War and the first Thor) Justice League Crisis on Two Earth and Gods and Monsters. Come to think of it the JL and JL Unlimited shows also get a lot of eyeball time Blue Mountain State Disney's Aladdin 60s Batman show American Ninja (not the show, you heathen. The movie!) Let's add some classy artsy fartsy now. Granada's Sherlock Holmes series
  2. Books. My dad will get a book of crossword puzzles, my best friend some graphic tpb of Deadpool/Rick&Morty/something by Mark Millar, another friend will get couple of birdwatching books.
  3. On the last point, yes, you're right, there's a difference between superpowers stories (the Red Queen series, like Hunger Games but with superpowers) and superhero stories. And thank you for these suggestions, I'll make a list a check my library system's availability.
  4. I've read the trilogy (there's a fourth book out now concentrating on the story from a supporting character's perspective), it's all right. I have read better and it is a very slow and unexciting narrative but I recognise the author's cred on her background research, especially on subjects like Elizabethian London/England and the history of alchemy. Closest soundbite I could reduce it is it's a supernatural Outlander. I have watched the first episode of the tv show so far and plan resume as soon as my work schedule let's up a bit.
  5. Hello. I've recently started reading superhero books and I'm looking for recommendations from those brave foolhardy souls who have travelled this path before I. So far I have read Richard Roberts "Please don't tell my parents I'm a supervillain" series (5 books and all mucho excellento), the two books from Ralph Angelo's "Hyperforce" series (is two books series? Maybe not) and few standalones from different authors like "Supervillain and Me", "Soon I will be invincible" and couple of others. Genre like this is bound to be full of trash among which few goodies can be found so post here recommen
  6. Can the thread starter add "spoilers" in the title? I need to ask another one who has seen the movie about one character whom I didn't recognise from the past movies in an important scene.
  7. Anyone else seen this? Minor spoiler: no end credit scene, so if your bladder is bursting after 3 hours of soda drinking go to the restroom and don't be like Tycho Brahe.
  8. 1. Where and when? You don't want to see. THE. MOST. BORING. ROCKY TRAINING MONTAGE. EVER. 2. Speed reading? No but I'm assuming you don't mean the drug variety. Then yes. 3. Sleep reading? No but not sure whether because the old belief of different sides of the brain makes reading asleep impossible or not, I've heard it might not be so. I do however keep two books by my bed and I read one before going to sleep my cat comes next to me and promptly curls up on to the book to nap. Hence second book. 4. Lying? Believe me (yes, I'm aware of the paradox but hang on) if I were lying about totals, m

  14. Jasper Fforde's Thursday Next series, although mainly because of the humor and not the AH.
  15. I've read this and while all right, it does come across a little bland. Neil Gaiman's persona does not shine here since he is re-doing traditional myths and doing them faithfully. Like a remake movie done shot for shot with the original. I would instead recommend Joanne Harris' Gospel of Loki, same story but a new angle and more Ohhh factor.
