I don't like "embarrassment humor". Otherwise, I range from mainstream to arthouse, from Marvel Cinematic (Avengers, Iron Man) to the German surrealist Flaming Ears, from golden age MGM musicals to Troma scream queen low budget trash.
Many in pieces, but few where I could sit down and just watch. Too busy of late. Occasionally my wife and I make popcorn, zero out all other distractions and watch a double feature for an evening.
Tough call. I watched Wristcutters: A Love Story in the last two years, and I'm very much looking forward to seeing 2011's Love.
Ebert's essay on the importance of audience relativity always resonated with me. I found most of his essays interesting. So probably Ebert.
Very much so. My favorites are Apocalypse Now, The Wall, End of Evangelon, and other such epics that are subject to wide interpretation. I have a soft spot for movies with music: Blues Brothers, Danny Kaye movies, etc.
Normal fellow, bounced around the country, met quite a few interesting people.
