About Me: I'm a huge movie fanatic.. I've got a bad habit of buying sometimes 2 to 3 movies a week, but I've cut down alot. Movies is my passion, and if it were my way, I'd be in the business. My movie collection exeeds 420+ all being my favorite movies. I love artsy films mostly (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Stay, Science of Sleep, etc), but my other favorites are Horror, Triller/Suspense and Romance if they bring something original and new to the table. I absolutely hate dumb-teen comedies, but love intelligent and smart comedies. I'm picky I guess you could say.

A coming of age comedy sure to please any fan of the genre. Of course the plot is all too familiar, but the film's script and pacing, helps it stand out. Set in '94, this film does a great job of bringing you back--with the choice of music and Luke's Nintendo system--to name a couple--if you pay attention to your movies, you'll notice at one point in the film a taxi passing by with an advertisement for the film Forrest Gump (which was released in '94.) The coming of age genre is one of my favorites besides horror and smart comedy, and this film definitely exceeded my expectations and stands next to some of the very best for me--such as Almost Famous, Adventureland, Juno and Outside Providence--of course, IMHO. Give it a try.
A very slow nail-biter that had me cornered. If you like your horror films to have more character development over mindless gore and teen sex--then this will definitely be a breath of fresh air for you. Everything from the cinematography to the chilling score, will remind you of the horror films most of us grew up on--such as Rosemary's Baby, The Shining, Halloween, etc.--and will leave you wanting more. Although a lot of today's audience will be snoozing through-out most this, I still recommend this to those of you who like your horror to be smart and clever, and without today's modern obscenities. Happy Watching.
A bitter-sweet rom-com that delivers! Joseph Gordon-Levitt is proving to be a favorite of mine, ever since his roles in "Brick." From the get go, we're told what this movie isn't--a love story. I was pleased that it actually followed through with that statement, and instead of making this your cliche' filled rom-com with the typical ending, it cared more to look at the break-ups that shape us as people. A Must Rent, but also worthy of a blind-buy!
This may not be your cup of tea, but if you loved the two films 28 Days Later and The Descent--most likely you're going to like this film. It's very atmospheric because this film is a first-person narrative. That's right, another hand-held film. None really take the cake for me, besides this, Cloverfield and The Blair Witch Project. I was aware of [Rec], but due to the non-existent region 1 release, I haven't seen it. So, I don't care if Quarantine is a remake--it's new to me. This film surprisingly had alot of shocking moments, and those "jump scares," but what sold the film for me, was the incredible make-up done on the infected. A great thrill ride in my opinion. See it.
