Hey all. Thanks for checking out this comment. I used to be a regular on here for years but in the past couple, I haven't passed...mainly because I don't review films much anymore. But I thought I'd come back and say hi to some of you that I've talked to in the past and see if you might like to check out my Youtube channel. I know, it horrible to just start spamming peoples comments with links asking them to check things out, but I've just started to pick up doing the things I plan on doing for the rest of my life and would love people to see what I've done so far and receive the views and the comments. My goal is to be an editor and I also love to direct, but thats something I'd do in my own time. Recently I edited a music video with Inception footage which some of you may like (which can be found on the channel) and the only other thing on there at the moment is an old music video I edited back in Film School (Deftones) which is poor quality, but it was fun to make. As time goes on I hope to add more to this channel (I have a documentary I just recently shot which I will hopefully add within a couple of months once edited...and I do have a short film, but its too long for Youtube). Sorry for the long comment but thanks again :)

Bio:
I guess I should get this out of the way but I'm a massive film nerd. I love everything about it. From watching films, talking about films, studying films and even making films ("I proudly use my camcorder until I hit it big"). So why do I love movies so much? Trying to say this in the least pretentious way possible but because I think a great film can affect a someone's life in such a profound way. I know they have with mine. Films have helped shape the way I look at my life. (Ok maybe I do need a life but f*ck you this is my profile and I'll write what I want) So if I do b*tch about how much Pearl Harbor sucks or become a pain in the ass asking you to give a little film a chance just remember I do it cause I care.

Not great Woody Allen but Will Ferrel, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Radha Mitchell's performances make it worth seeing once.

Why Did I Get Married?

Why Did I Get Married is a film that has a lot that's good but feels uncompleted and rushed.
I'll be the first to admit I'm not a Tyler Perry fan. (Yes I'm aware that the white 16 year old kid isn't exactly his target audience.) but this is easily his best flick (I also know that doesn't say much but keep reading.) Just sadly the good doesn't make up for the problems of Why Did I Get Married.
The problems are that Perry doesn't spend enough time establishing of the characters which is a shame because there are some strong work trying to get out of this film. We have some characters who are flawed but you know that there trying to help and the best performances of the film from Jill Scott and Malik Yoba (Ice on Arrested Development.) is helped because there will written characters. Then you have characters that are nothing more then black stereotypes and you get horrible performances because if it. As for the story it's a great concept not taken to it's full advantage.
Perry is getting better and I think it's great that we now have black filmmakers making mainstream films that try to get away from certain ideas and I'm sure once Perry gets the loose screws fixed with his writing, he'll be someone to watch. Just Why Did I Get Married won't be the film to do that.

How much you like "Avatar" will depend on one simple question. Does a massive breakthrough in technology make up for weak storytelling and characters? For me, I didn't forgive George Lucas for it and I'm sure as hell not going to forgive James Cameron. Avatar is a one of the most visually beautiful films I've ever seen but with flat characters and a boring storyline, I can't really say that once the technology is in the hands of other filmmakers that there will really be any reason to call "Avatar" revolutionary.
Now I really wanted to love this movie, we need to see studios taking risks on stories that are different and we need directors like Cameron who have such a grand vision. At the same time I cannot give the film a free pass because
