Bio:
EDIT: My personal life is sort of intruding for various reasons and causing me to get way behind on reviewing things. Rest assured, I plan to get back to it (and have a small backlog of films I actually saw that I plan to review already)...but I'm not sure exactly how soon it will be. Cheers. I like a lot of movies, I like tons of movies, I OWN tons of movies. They are westerns, comedies, horror, sci-fi, drama, cult, Troma, undefinable, classic, cheesy (but rarely to me even when to everyone else) brilliant, banal, stupid, smart, witty, clever, irreverent, absurd, touching, heart-breaking, depressing, pretentious, straightforward--nailing it down is next to impossible. People get the impression I hate movies because I am vocal about my loathing for a select few. Most horror remakes of the last decade make me ill. I abhorred the Dawn of the Dead remake (and refer to it as "Daun" of the Dead in a vague attempt to distance it from the classic original) as well as that of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and openly despise the Ring for being inferior to its predecessor and for outright theft (the original film is stolen from but not credited, and was nearly buried in Region 1 by the company that released The Ring). I hated 300 and I hated Kill Bill Volume 1 (but not 2). I hate Will Ferrell and I hate Ben Stiller. I hate David Lynch (except The Elephant Man,Dune, and Eraserhead). I hate Constantine--the only one of these I've not seen, outside most Will Ferrell movies--for crapping all over a character I love. I've dissuaded many a person from buying Alien Vs. Predator. Beyond that I'm actually pretty open minded. I don't hate remakes on principle (see: Cronenberg's the Fly, John Carpenter's The Thing, the Bogart Maltese Falcon and so on) and I do watch them first (there are SOME exceptions--I didn't and won't see Constantine) before judging them. I can also come across incorrectly as regards some films; I dislike what Cameron did to the concept of the Alien when he made Aliens, his extremely earthbound, boring ideas, his attitude and his removal of Giger from the creative process--but I do still love Aliens quite a bit. So, if I appear hateful, I assure you it's just that it happens that the things I dislike are more present in the public consciousness at the moment. You know, like Watchmen. I have real, actual reasons for loathing that movie and its place in the world. Check out my essay-bloody-length review to see why. (And if you send me some Watchmen test or recommend the movie to me, I'm just going to remove you from my friends, because you aren't paying any attention to my reviews--even star ratings--and so there's no point in being connected on a site related to such things.)
