I watched the first movie. I'll see if the library has them and put them on my list.
I'm reading the Dresden Files, which is a series of books about a professional wizard that lives in Chicago and sometimes helps the police to solve crimes that involve magic. It starts off clichéd, but it's very good and I like the author's writing style. And he puts in lots of modern culture references, including Star Wars, LOTR, and other stuff I know and like.
