Ok so recommend one of each which you think are either classics that don't get the credit they deserve or just slightly weird/obscure good stuff that maybe people won't have heard of. I'll start..

Book : The Dice Man (Luke Reinhart) (Very funny book (claimed to be true) about a man who makes his every decision in life on the roll of a dice with some very strange options!)

Film : The Acid House (a very strange,twisted, funny film based on three short stories by Irvine Walsh)

Album : The Cinematic Orchestra - Everyday (Orchestrated Drum & Bass, Amazing)

What's this bit for again?

I find that critics really underate comedies that are not completely serious and suttle making them more dramas with moments of comedy in them. I think a lot of comedy movies are ignored by a lot of people because they are not epic memorable oscar winning hits, rather than think of the actual entertainment it provides.

That's true, but the reason that those "dramas with moments of comedy" movies win awards is because they work on a bunch of different levels, and are more than just a series of fart jokes, you know? Like Little Miss Sunshine, for example. I agree with you for the most part though--like Dumb and Dumber. It may not be an epic masterpiece but it's one of the funniest movies ever made.

I'll approach this in terms of general recommendations, rather than what I actually think to be best.

Book: Catch-22, by Joseph Heller (The book that made me start writing.)
Film: Dr. Strangelove (Or, How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb)
Album: Blonde on Blonde, by Bob Dylan (Okay, so that one actually IS the best...)

I love you, man. (Though, like all the early Phish albums, every song was appx. two million times better live.)

What I meant is that critics an a lot of people will not consider movies like dumb and dumber but will infinitely praise little miss sunshine. It may be a good movie, but it doesnt mean other really entertaining movies like your metascore of 39 there were some good scores though. but it is extremely underrated

There he goes, Firkraag. One of God's own prototypes. A high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die. - My VGscore
