Films: Blazing Saddles, Serenity....action is hard because it's my favourite genre....RED/Die Hard/Commando/Kung Fu Hustle - the list goes on!
TV: The Wire, Firefly (there's enough comedy to justify this!)/South Park, Green Wing/Blackadder
Music: Essential Ella - timeless, Use Your Illusion 2, Hangin Tough - I was a 14y/o girl!
Books - I would have to throw everything else out and fill the capsule with books. The Gone-Away World (seriously, READ IT), the Name of the Wind. Every. Single. Terry Pratchett. All the Douglas Adams......can I have a bigger capsule?

:) The Name of the Wind is great! The Wise Man's Fear is even better. :)

The two I come back to the most are Life of Brian and Blazing Saddles. I think it's their quotability. I also LOVE The Meaning of Life for the songs. My kids already knew the Universe Song, and have now started learning all the others.

Flight of the Navigator. It's dated now, but I still have a squishy spot in my heart for it. And it was the first use of that 'liquid metal' CGI that looked absolutely AWESOME! Possibly responsible for my being a massive sci-fi geek.

Also David Lynch's Dune. Again, dated but still LOVE it as an adaptation.

That was EXACTLY how I felt. It was almost like watching an animated movie in some places because of how precisely they replicated the comic panels. The casting was great. And I thought the ending worked better - particularly for people who hadn't read the comic book.

Godzilla turns out to be particularly good at apprehending deliquent dragons. :) Thanks for saying Pratchett! <3 <3 <3

Wow. That is the story. You totally win this one. I LOVE Alex Kingston, she does seem awesome! And Tonks and Atreyu? My childhood and adulthood collide! <3

OMFG - If I had met Terry Pratchett, I would probably break down and cry. I mean, I love Joss and would have a hard time being coherent if I met him, but Pratchett is like a god to me.

I get mine mostly from Twitter. I occasionally check the BBC news website, but as they have become the mouthpiece of our government rather than an independent broadcaster, I only do this to find stories that don't have political implications/input or to see how the government are lying to us now.

I know that sounds boringly and annoyingly paranoid, but the head of the BBC is a former Tory MP and many of the board members have financial interests in the private companies to whom our government is handing public contracts (publicly available information) so it's all provable.

Twitter has proven to be more accurate and up to the minute.
