I’m gradually writing reviews of all the important, ground-breaking or just plain odd films in my collection and I’m delighted to share them with you here.
My aesthetic, as such, is pretty singular and entirely subjective. I confess that I detest “feel good” movies and overblown Hollywood CGI fests. Rom-coms make me nauseous. I have yet to see “Avatar” and think the “oeuvre” of James Cameron, J.J. Abrams and Michael Bay is compelling and irrefutable evidence that our species evolved from dumb, shit-lobbing primates with an eye for bright, shiny objects. Most contemporary movies leave me cold. I hope I’m not an apologist for the many short-comings of genre films, but I do love an old noir or cheesy sci fi flick.
This is definitely a work-in-progress; I’ll be adding more critiques as time allows. Eventually I hope to compile enough to put out a book (but that’s still a few years down the road). You can click on the link below, download my reviews and commence reading.
And then…let the debate begin.
