<b>!!!!!!!!! WARNING TO SPAMMERS & THEIR BOTS !!!!!!!!!! If you spam me, you will not simply be blocked, you will be REPORTED. I have a solid record of aiding in the ACCOUNT DELETION of those who use Flixster for INAPPROPRIATE PURPOSES, and that even includes the 'hi how are you' bots and widget-crazy creations. Sorry to be ?-ist, but "Only REAL people and movie fans need apply". It's one thing when people on my friends list send me trailers, links to their blogs, polls, or announce a new list because <i>that is awesome, and what Flixster is for!</i>It's another thing to send me fifteen sparkling gaudy "I Love You" widgets per day when you're not even on my friends' list or have 2112 ratings but they're all 5 stars and say "pretty cool" for the review and you want me to add you as a friend; that is pointless web garbage nonsense and NOT what Flixster is for.</b> -------------------------------------------------------------------- PROFILE BEGIN. -------------------------------------------------------------------- _addicted to the horror genre, particularly zombies and exploitation; tend to watch foreign, documentary, dark comedy, classics, dystopian sci-fi/fantasy, independent, experimental, animation, extreme, queer, arthouse -_my birthday, May 24, was also the release date of Dawn of the Dead but I was born 7 years (fashionably) late for the premiere. -_ I got Steve Merchant added to Flixster, so that'll probably help his career. So Smerch, once you've got your Brando billions, remember the little Karl Pilkingtons, like myself, who made you what you are.</a> -_always want suggestions or recommendations, especially for my lists -_prefer friends who are fairly active on flixster and write quality reviews often. But I have no qualms adding a new member who is interested in growing their content and fully utilizing the site (I've seen many a profile blossom from a handful of thoughtful reviews to a full-on film blog) <p align=center><b>My Top Favorite Films</b></p> <widget id="341778" type="Rock You - SlideShow"/> <p align=center><b>Share Film Knowledge \\\ <img src=http://img213.imageshack.us/img213/5624/wolverineanimatednt2.gif height=83 width=83> /// Add this Ravenous Cinephile</b></p> Have had less time to write reviews as I'm working (in film) more, but whenever I get spare time, I obsessively update my ratings and reviews. I occasionally use the "recommend a movie" option about once or twice a month when I can be active on flixster, and it's usually an "overlooked" piece. I welcome any of your recommendations or requests to expound on my reviews (as I often type quick vague blurbs). I like the occasional academic-analytical correspondence about a specific film/flick/movie/genre, and may ask your expanded opinion of a particular movie you've seen if you're on my friend list. I am primarily a writer of all genres, and work in film production as a gaffer-grip (cinematography is my primary interest, but "of course what I really want to do is direct"). I am always searching for my creative soulmate - the Jay to my Silent Bob, the Aja to my Levasseur, the Smerch to my Gervais. <p align=center>Later On, Check Out:..... <a href=http://www.helium.com/user/show_articles/379234><b>Hyperfocal:</a></b>A Series of Serious Analyses Just as the title implies, that's a link to my formal articles.

They are non-traditionally organized and seek to gather similar films and explain why they fit with the spirit of the list, not to "rank" films like a scoreboard!</b> I only add a featured video to my scrapbook if it's one of my favorite scenes/shots of all time (or is outright hilarious satire). Most of my pic scrapbook is stuff I've uploaded. I try to revise my ratings often to reflect any changed perspective on the movie. My above favorite directors and actors are people whom I feel compelled to digest their entire filmography as something about their artwork truly engages me. My reviews are organic, and I use flixster to help develop a few thoughts into a formal article, make notes to self, and reflect on my viewing process. After using Flixster for so long, I've realized that the most useful feature is the extensive network of film analysis experts one can build here if you put in the proper time and effort in friend selection. -------------------------------------------------------------------- <p align=center><b>Hyperfocal:The Current Watch Project - Summer 2011</b></p> Have finally gotten around to updating my profile (does not update in my default Chrome dev browser so I'm capitulating and using Firefox atm). Have been neglecting reviews because I've actually been getting film work this past year. Since it's now summer in Louisiana, I am not working as much and back to focusing on my writing. As a fully obsessed hobby, I like to keep current with my ratings and write as many reviews as I can here on flixster (and I have a much bigger backlog than I've ever had right now).
