    Yes! I love how it's playfully innocent but still a bit risque. Lumpy Space Princess is the best!

    The ones that stay with me and I keep coming back to again and again, in no particular order:

    Movies

    1) The End of the Affair (the Ralph Fiennes/Julianne Moore version) - a beautifully written and acted, intensely emotional and cathartic movie.
    2) Kill Bill I & II - for me, one of Tarantino's most enjoyable and rewatchable. Thurman and the rest of the cast are just a kick-ass joy.
    3) Twelve Monkeys - I adore most of Gilliam's movies but this one stays in my head more than most. It's a great combination of weird, funny and at one or two moments, almost unbearably poignant.
    4) Aliens - the Cameron-directed action segment of the Alien series is the one I return to again and again. I do love me a quotable space marine
    5) The Grifters - I never get tired of this tale of small-time conman John Cusack circled and eventually destroyed by two other small-time crooks - his mother and his girlfriend.
    6) Blade Runner (the director's cut) - pretty much the most visually influential and atmospheric SF film ever made. It mesmerises me ever time.
    7) The Piano - there's a subdued eerieness to the characters and the landscape in this film I just love.
    8) The LOTR trilogy - so many fantasy epics are epic shit. Peter Jackson showed how it should be done. Heart in my mouth throughout, every time.
    9) The Fisher King - a mixure of whimsy and heart, I love this film.
    10) The Thin Man - the first and best of the Myrna Loy Nick n' Nora films. Just a delight from start to finish.

    Honourable mentions:

    The English Patient
    A Knight's Tale
    Ed Wood
    A League of their Own

    TV

    1) Carnivale
    2) Mad Men
    3) True Blood
    4) Dexter
    5) Spaced
    6) Father Ted
    7) Doctor Who
    8) Edge of Darkness
    9) Firefly
    10) Babylon 5
