Quote from: mj fan on August 07, 2013, 04:25AMI studied litterature and i had to read so many books that now it is not really fun anymore..a little annoying xP
Without having studied literature, I know exactly what you mean! I used to read a lot as a kid, but having had to read literature novels for high school took the fun out of it, and then having had to read scientific literature for my studies made me not want to read books in my spare time anymore. That's how I ended up discovering comic books as a different medium for reading great stories.

Anyway, let me do one of these according to format (freely omitted and added stuff):

Name: Valentijn

Most Marvel movies, especially Avengers, Thor, Spider-Man 2, X-Men 2, Iron Man 3 (I actually also liked several Marvel movies a lot which are tend to draw more negative reviews/feedback: Daredevil, Spidey 3, X-Men 3, X-Men Origins: Wolverine); Batman Begins (liked the 3rd one too... but I honestly do not think much of the Dark Knight!); Watchmen; LOTR triology; Serenity; the A-Team & more
