20's-Nosferatu (only one I know but vampires kick arse :) )
30's-The Picture of Dorian Gray
40's-Can't think of one
50's-Jason and the Argonauts
60's-Easy Riders ('69, right?)
70's-Taxi Driver (Yeah!)
80's-Pulp Fiction
90's-The 13th Warrior
Current-LotR trilogy

Incarnadine's a cool name; you know what it is, right?

"Incarnadine's a cool name; you know what it is, right?"

Thanks, yeah I know it is a color like oxblood but I really got it from the lord of the everlasting castle with its doors leading to an infinite number of worlds in John Dechancie's Castle series. Your name is cool too, makes me hear an old song in my head by the Hoodoo Gurus of the same name whenever I see it:

Did we ever meet in Zanzibar,
Two Caucasians at the town bazaar?
Are you who you say you are?
Did you offer me a Dutch cigar?
You must have thought you were so bourgeois.
Are you who you say your are?

After all these years, you haven't changed at all
But I can't say you look the same.

Summer days are hot in Zanzibar
And at night the sky is filled with stars.
Listen. You can hear guitars.

Native people, skins as black as tar,
Wear bright-coloured robes in Zanzibar.
They've never even heard of Ska!
On a tour of limestone caves
Did we see where traders kept their slaves?
Was that how we spent the day?

After all these years, you haven't changed at all
But I can't say you look the same.

I have never been to Zanzibar
I have always thought it was too far
You're not who you say you are.

I've only read Castle Perilous, I didn't realize there were others (though now I'll surely investigate). As for Zanzibar, it's an island off the coast of Tanzania with a city on it that's also called Zanzibar, though I think this is off-topic.
