re: Sci-Fi/Fantasy Recommendation & Discussion Thread - auyushu
Abercrombie or Zelazny are by far the best two of that list. And btw, if you found Robin Hobb's Fitz books a little slow and tedious you are going to find Memory, Sorrow, and Thorn super fun :lol:. Up there for the most annoying main protagonist in any series I've ever read. Though it is well wri...

[quote]Just came across Book of the New Sun series by Gene Wolf - anyone read these?[/quote] It's a solid series overall, but it's a very meandering series and not very plot oriented. The characters are average. But it has very good world building and is a very unique and somewhat trippy story. ...

re: Is The Outlaw Josey Wales The Greatest Western Of All Time? - auyushu
The good, the bad, and the ugly and Once upon a Time in the West are my top two westerns personally, but Josey Wales would definitely be top 5 for me. And I certainly wouldn't argue against anyone who had it as their number one western....

re: Wonder Woman 1984 Official Thread **SPOILERS** - auyushu
I think the worst part about this movie was that it was both bad and boring. At least with some terrible films they have good action so you are still somewhat entertained, this didn't even have that. What little action there was had terrible CGI. Not sure what the hell Jenkins spent her budget on wi...

re: Sci-Fi/Fantasy Recommendation & Discussion Thread - auyushu
R Scott Bakker with The Prince of Nothing trilogy that we've discussed fits the bill here. China Mieville's The Scar and Perdido Street Station are both really good and unique and might kinda fit the bill here. The other ones I can think of right off hand I don't necessarily think are that gr...
