Movies

1. The Matrix - because everyone likes to ponder the likelihood of a Marxist dystopian parallel universe.

2. The Royal Tenenbaums - Wes Anderson's quirky romantic comedy with Gwyneth Paltrow makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside.

3. Star Trek (2009) - despite the fact that I usually hate remakes, this version of Star Trek was masterfully recreated and I loved Zachary Quinto as Mister Spock.

4. Napoleon Dynamite - delicious soundtrack and a poignant portrait of a lonely boy's lonely life in a lonely place.

5. Death Note - this live-action adaptation of the manga and anime, split in to two parts, stays true to the original story and incorporates the twists and turns of the plot with elegant precision.

6. The Shawshank Redemption - one of my all-time favourite films, an absolute must for any top-ten list.

7. Kiki's Delivery Service - I love the quiet simplicity of this anime. »
