I'm curious as to whether there are any specific books/movies/shows that 5s tend to enjoy. List your favorites, and perhaps we can put together a list of common type 5 favorites?
Films - I enjoy obscure, bizarre & surrealist films & also raw & honest ones. Enter the Void, Stars Wars V, The Big Lebowski, The Dreamers, 2oo1: A Space Odyssey, Lost in Translation, Fantastic Mr Fox, The English Patient, Princess Mononoke, Spirited Away, Pan's Labyrinth, Let the Right One In, The Fountain, Alien, Aliens, Edward Scissorhands, Prometheus.
I don't even understand the hate man. What was to hate? What could people possibly hate about it? Besides the love of my life, Noomi Rapace, starred the lead role. I might actually have liked it better than Alien & Aliens.Yay. Someone else who didn't completely hate Prometheus.
TV - Sad to say, but the only tv shows I use to watch was the one on HBO's like OZ, The Wire, The Sopranos, Treme (can't wait for the 4th season). I'm also guilty of watching some reality shows such as the The real houswives franchise as well as those about celebrities and their families such as T.I. family hustle, The Braxtons family values, Catfish, Iyanla - fix my life, etc. I guess I am addicted to dysfunctional families.
I have found that many fives enjoy Neal Stephenson and Stephen King. As for movies, Kubrick and Cronenberg come to mind.
Many of King's books focus on that dead zone between childhood and adolescence. I often see readers in that age range relating more to the material; King's style is also really accessible, plot-heavy and visual a la Thomas Harris or John Grisham. But yeah, a good chunk of INTPs on this forum mentioned King among favorite writers.Could not read Stephen King. His movies and collaborations are okay. I felt my IQ slipping further and further down the scale when I tried to get through IT. Not a fan of his writing style at all.
