A Long Way Gone by Ishmael Beah:
An amazing book. It shows how you can survive through the most brutal of circumstances and yet still have light in your heart. I think this should be mandatory reading material.
This movie touched my heart in so many ways...and made me want to learn more about Indian culture :). This isn't very well known, but it is on Netflix --> if you have it, watch it!
Repo! The Genetic Opera:
I had no idea what to expect going into this! So much macabre fun to be had here. I love Anthony Stewart Head (Giles from Buffy!) and Sarah Brightman! It ended up being both epic, fun, and sad. I would definitely watch this again, as some of its songs were stuck in my head for awhile after watching!
Either I felt really bad when I watched this movie, or there wasn't a whole lot to it. Daniel Craig's attractiveness was my main reason for putting it on, but I can't say I really cared for any of the characters. It was a gritty cocaine tale that left me wanting more.
