I like that you know the phrase is "I couldn't care less" rather than the nonsensical "I could care less."

To update from two years ago, I have a job but it hasn't kept me from vigorously masturbating on a frequent basis.

It's strange posting in this topic given that I've been a member here for about six years, but whatever.

I'm Guy. I'm a drunk with degrees in philosophy and mathematics, working my way toward a PhD in philosophy so I can pursue my lifelong dream of delivering pizzas. I'm awful about keeping track of ratings here. I tend to only rank about 1/4th of what I watch, and I generally try to make sure I don't enter a score until I've seen a movie at least two or three times.

Here's a picture of me in my mother's clothing:

I am Toxic

...or so I've been told.

Arrived here today. I really like the speed of the site, not a lot of crap taking forever to load.

I also like the mini-review format as it fits with my concise reviewing style; this way I can watch more movies instead of spending more time writing reviews. :mrgreen:

My nickname actually is Toxic Fletch. I got that from a gaming group. We would get together for roleplaying and about half the time it would turn into a movie watching session. I always liked horror movies, and especially sleazy ones. One of the guys started calling me Toxic because he somehow associated sleazy horror movies with The Toxic Avenger (I didn't get it either), and my name is Fletch, short for Fletcher, so that's what they called me and I use it for an online presence.

Talk to you all soon.

Been a member for over 4 years, figured it was about time to say "Hi".

Hello.

I am interested, as I say above Paxton, in commenting on movies, but ranking them seems somewhat irrelevant.-Ron
------------------------------
Here is a prose-poem entitled: AT THE MOVIES

When the French writer Gustav Flaubert was asked whether he wanted his novel Madame Bovary illustrated, he said: "No, on no account; everybody will lose their individual picture of her." I think the same would be true if this autobiography of mine was ever made into a film. At the same time, I've always had a certain sympathy for people who don't read or read very little. And there are millions of such people now, people who watch 30 plus hours of TV every week. Their time with print is a very few number of hours and usually with newspapers, magazines and pulp fiction. I’d certainly like to reach as large an audience as possible with my writing but, if I wanted to reach millions I'd have more success as a movie-maker. For these millions, exposure to my autobiographer could only be done through the medium of cinema.

Novelists, autobiographers, writers in various genres, fantasize about their work transferred to film. Most writers are not equipped to make a movie, in my opinion. I’m certainly not; I’m not really interested in doing so. I’m a writer not a film maker. “Novelists make their own movie when they write,” said John Le Carre. “They're casting, they're dressing the scene, they're working out where the energy of the scene is coming from and they're also relying tremendously on the creative imagination of the reader.”1 This is partly true of me and what I write, but not in the detailed way that Le Carre describes here for novelists. For the most part, I have not had my mind on some visual narrative while I have been writing. -Ron Price with thanks to 1John Le Carre in “John le Carré at the NFT,” Adrian Wootton, Guardian Unlimited, October 5, 2002

Can we find the creative fact,
the fertile fact, the suggestive,
engendering fact, the brightness,
the special flavour, the scientific
spirit, the conversational catalyst,
the significant relationships, truth
in symbolic, poetic form, a certain
hyperactuality, heightened import
intensified real-life? Can we?

Can private, inner, mental, life
be described and set in time,
in history’s whole? Can the story
of my listless will, indolence,
sluggish ease, care on care,
black melancholy and my seeking
of a lonely bed which sooths
my languid head, can it be told
while reason’s feeble light shoots
a pale glimmer in the gloom of night.1

Passed by this site a couple of times before finally signing up. I've been keeping my scores on IMDb so with some import magic I was done pretty quickly. From what I've seen this site is still missing some of the more obscure films, but for quick stats it's definitely interesting.

My taste in films can be described as (based on the ~5000 films I watched the past 10 years):

1/ I like Asian cinema, with a soft spot for Japanese films. They dominate my lists of favorites.
2/ Don't like classics/older cinema. I keep trying, a film/week or so, but apart from a few rare cases (Kôji Wakamatsu's 60s work and Letyat Zhuravli for example) they just don't do it for me.
3/ I like to watch genre films. I won't rave about them or rate them highly, but I still like watching them as filler.
4/ My general soft spot is somewhere between genre and arthouse films, usually post 2000's.
5/ I am open to watching everything and don't mind when my own score that doesn't reflect the opinion of whatever majority. So be careful when suggesting personal favorites :)

I have been commited to blogging for the past 7 years, reviewing the films I rate 4* or higher (out of 5 that is), so I only invest time in reviewing the films I like. So far that little project yielded 509 review: http://www.onderhond.com/archive/onderh ... ory=movies

That also prompted me to make an ever-growing Top xxx list on my blog. Currently I'm at 200, when the whole list is reviewed I just add 10 and repeat that same process on my way to a full-fledged Top 250: http://www.onderhond.com/movies100

Non-related film hobbie facts: I am engaged, listen to electronic music, I game a little (nothing heavy though - I have a WiiU and a 3DS) and I'm a front-end developer by profession. That means I help out with the construction of websites, handling on of the many specific jobs involved in getting a website online.
