I love Tim Burton, Quentin Tarantino, Robert Rodriguez films, they're an excellent example of retro films, and they release films regardless if that genre is popular enough, they just do an amazing film work, with pulp, love and heart (althought the violence in the latest two is beyond imagination, the stories are excelent and surpass most directors who can be compared to Boll is we put them next to these guys). I also like a lot the Zack Snyder's movies, they have are real originality that is fresh and excelent, remake and adaptation of films and comic books, which are almost unbeatable, not like those guys who took all the elements of a comic book and dishonor the gut of the fans. And, too, I love the soundtracks of the movies of these guys. Danny Elfman? Amazingly amazing! Mexican and MalagueÃ±a Salerosa? Excelent! Johnny Cash and Bob Dylan in opening scenes of zombies and vigilantes/superheroes? Strange, seemingly impossible, but simply unbelievable!
I love comic books too, and big fan of the British writers, like Gaiman, Moore, Morrison, Milligan, Hewlett. Also, American have their own heroes, Mignola, Way, Miller, and of course, love the Ba & Moon brothers. I love the Hellblazer stories, Watchmen, The Sandman, Batman's collected stories, Sin City, The Umbrella Academy, Hellboy, and lately I've reading Animal Man and Doom Patrol.
I also, hardly to see or not, read a lot. Like the old books people don't even look at, not even when they're adapting it into a terrible one of a film. Books like Dracula, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Jules Verne's, War of the Worlds, The Lord of The Rings and asociates, and I'm looking forward to meet some C.S Lewis works. I like Stephen King too, The Dark Tower being one favorite in his writings for me.
My music... is kinda complicated. For one side, I like the Post Hardcore slips, with From First to Last, Thursday, MCR, Finch, The Used and the like. The other side is of classic and country, from Dylan, Cash, pianos and the like, to the more recent dark cabaret spins... wait, there's more! I love New Wave, Alt. Rock and Post Punk tunes (with a bit of goth), from The Cure, Depeche Mode, Joy Division, Tears for Fears, The Smashing Pumpkins, to the new She Wants Revenge, The Horrors, and stuff... more? Okay, how about mexican? Los Lobos, Robert Rodriguez soundtracks and his band, Chingon, old classics like La MalagueÃ±a, Besame Mucho, and others. International too? The Rasmus, HIM, BjÃ¶rk, Gorillaz, Blur, Damon Albarn...Basically, much stuff except Pop and Hip Hop.
I, of course, love video games, all in different ranges, from gameplay to stories to graphics to even soundtrack (I bitch a lot with the soundtracks). The Metal Gears, Max Payne, Final Fantasies, and, of course, the Resident Evils. Also, love a good co-op game, shooters and RPGs.
