Fantasy Movies, Comic Books & Video Games / Song of the Sea
« on: March 09, 2015, 05:37:59 PM »

Has anyone seen Song of the Sea yet? Looks like it could be an awesome film. It's not coming to cinemas anywhere near us, so we'll have to wait until the DVD is available. The Secret of Kells was pretty good, beautifully animated and a nice story only let down by a few flaws. The new film looks even more beautiful, hopefully the story telling has improved as well.


Fantasy Book & Author Discussion / Recommendations?

Hi, I've been lurking on the site for a few weeks now, only just signed up. People seem to give some pretty good recommendations here, so I thought I should ask, particularly because we're about to buy some brand new shelves and need new books to fill them!

Generally what I'm looking for is very high quality fantasy set outside the medieval Europe cliché, without the traditional binary good/evil dichotomy, but without the over-done "gritty"/"dark" stuff like rape, sex and torture that seems pretty common these days. Examples that really hit the spot for me are the Long Price Quartet and most of Brandon Sanderson's cosmere.

My favourite fantasy series in no particular order:
Long Price Quartet
Realm of the Elderlings (Liveships in particular)
Cosmere (Emperor's Soul)
Riyria Revelations
His Dark Materials

Others that I liked:
Old Kingdom Trilogy
Alvin Maker

Thanks in advance!  :P
