During the April A-Z Challenge, I’m posting six days a week, following the letters of the alphabet. I will share all the movies, books and games I watched, read and played--all the influences that turned me into the geeky person and writer I am today.
The Lord of the Rings by J R R Tolkien (1954): No surprises I’d name this book here. Sheer brilliance. This is the only book I’ve read more than three times. I joined the Tolkien Society and did art for their bulletins and journals. I learnt how to write the Elvish script and the Dwarvish runes.
The Lost Boys (1987): The music was awesome and the actors were great. Back when vampire stories hadn’t been overdone, this teen movie rocked. Now it’s a cult classic.
Ladyhawke (1986): This movie makes my heart flutter. This is one of my most favourite movies of all time.
Honourable mention: The Last Starfighter (1984)
Lemmings (1991). A very early PC game. Fantastic premise—to save the lemmings from jumping off cliffs. It had me chuckling for hours.
What's your most favourite book and/or movie of all time?
