shitty memes aside, where do I even start with this guy? He's written like 50 books. What are his most important ones?
titled "The Essential Zizek"
Start with brushing up on your Freud and Marx. Then read How to Read Lacan, which is a pretty accessible intro to Zizek's thoughts about Lacan (actually reading Lacan won't get you anywhere). After that, or during, watch his movies. Then just read whatever looks interesting to you.
Some of his books he wrote for an academic, philosophical audience.

There are some more geared towards a lay-audience (like /lit/). I have a copy of First As Tragedy, Then As Farce because I hear that's one of them.
Demanding the Impossible is a great introductory text as it's basically an interview and you can get a handle on Zizeks views.
Then read 'Violence'. From there you can probably pick for yourself
Give me an argument backing your answers and I'll consider it. Thing is, you don't have one and I see why you limit yourself to mindlessly repeat what you read.
Prove me wrong.

Fucking dropped. He can't even pull from pop-culture without fucking it up before he even gets to his point.
Seriously though, some of his ideas are well-formed. He makes some points. Others are lost in his self-absorbed writing. He makes loads of assumptions about the ideologies he criticizes. At least he's got wit.
Meme material and not much more.
