Bio: Entertain and move me with story, character, acting, music/score, cinematography, and direction. Make it stylized, unapologetic, atmospheric, edgy, mysterious, and provocative. Love the "buddy" genre (e.g. The Karate Kid, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, Midnight Run) and crime flics. Appreciate the history of film and the movements within along with its auteurs, foreign and domestic, i.e., Fellini, Antonioni, Godard, Truffaut, De Sica, Renoir, Bunuel, Ozu, Kurosawa, Kubrick, Pressburger & Powell, Altman, Allen, Hawks, Keaton, & Chaplin.

"Great casting, good acting, of course. There are many films that telegraph the ending, and we have fun watching them, e.g. All the President's Men, the Goonies, and The Karate Kid. I enjoyed watching the performances in this one, but I knew, way too soon, that E.T. was phoning for home."
|38 T6||Prometheus (2012) - May 11, 2013
"A visually stunning disjointed mess. I second krf7 when he says the file was "pretty much a disaster relative to potential." Although our instincts tell us otherwise, less is more. That's why Alien was a success, Ridley. This, unfortunately, with all its ambition, was not."
|53 T9||Toy Story (1995) - May 05, 2013|

"Uneven? Yes. Overwrought plotting? Yup. Tad heavy-handed and laid on thick? Definitely. With that said, some pretty darn individual performances. Some great individual scenes. Understated, haunting score. Schenectady, NY, my backyard. Sold!"
