I'm interested in being a librarian/archivist for AV materials. You can look for my movie lists to eventually provide award winners for different categories and awards. I've been working on a personal goal to watch all major category Academy Award winners (cause it seemed like the best way to absorb the largest number of classic, iconic movies that have quality stories and excellent acting).
I've published my first book of movie reviews on Kindle! http://www.amazon.com/100-Years-Movies-Flixster-Reviewer-ebook/dp/B00RHBORYK/ref=la_B00RKLMZ7S_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1419890095&sr=1-1

This heartfelt doc is available on Netflix. This is the story of a real life Mr. Holland's Opus. With lots of archival footage and recordings and present day interviews this film illustrates the impact one music teacher had over 35 years. "Prof" turned a high school jazz band in the mid to late 70s into an award winning, touring, album making funk band. Great music throughout! Now, alumni from the band reunite to honor "Prof" at a Kashmere High School tribute concert. You probably lack a soul if you don't shed at least a few tears.
Heartfelt tale about leaving your mark in the world. One of my favorite 90s movies. Mr. Holland is the type of inspiring teacher that we all wish we had in school. He is not perfect, since his composing and teaching career takes precedence over his own family. Have tissues ready.
I've been to Las Vegas twice. I go for the shows, not the debauchery. Ed Helms's Stu pretends to be responsible, telling his fiance he doesn't want to hang out with the guys in Vegas drinking, gambling, and hitting on strippers. He is uptight, but goes overboard with all those things when he indulges in drugs and booze in the city of sin. I am the genuine, respectable Stu. I've never had a group of guy friends that I felt comfortable with going out and having a wild time. This doesn't speak to me. Bradley Cooper's Phil still has the maturity level of the high school students he teaches. Zach Galifianakis's socially inept Alan names these guys, who have very little in common, his wolf pack. Gross-out humor going for shock value from men who drink to the point of amnesia does not guarantee laughing out loud from this guy.
