What type of movies do you like?

I am currently going thru the top 100 films of all time...but love romantic comedies, Documentaries, Sci Fi, and inspirational films. I am not huge on Horror movies...but I am open to anything really.

How many movies have you seen in the last month?

I watch a movie at least once a day. I go to the movies often with friends.

Name the best movie you've seen in the past year.

OUR Movie...lol..."Hunger in America" Narrated by James Denton...or "Autism in America" narrated by Chandra Wilson both coming out this year....kidding....because I am studying the Art of Filmmaking...I cannot limit myself to a best movie. I cry at cartoons by Disney...get inspired by Documentaries...I travel the world from my bedroom daily from my 60" screen on my wall before I get out of bed.

Siskel or Ebert?

neither...honestly I never paid attention to them...and now I kind of wish that I did.

Do you enjoy being challenged by a film?

EVERY SINGLE DAY I am being challenged to create something that will change the world millions of screens at a time. I want to walk away from a film empowered...freaked out...touched....I want a wave of Emotions to hit me like a tidal wave...I don't want to be afraid to cry as a man in a room full of people...or laugh out loud or be surprised. I want so bad to connect with a story...to live the life presented...I don't care WHO is the person acting out the role on screen...I want to believe the story...I want to FEEL the music...I want to know that someday that whole crawl list of names at the end of a film have lived and been inspired that the product was because of the accumulation of the special moments in past films we all love. I will pick up a piece of trash because of a film. I will hug someone or smile because they remind me of a character. Films get me out of bed...to live better than any Rock Star. For someone in my position, I should care about the details- just let me feel.

Introduction

Hello. I am currently a filmmaker and have an interest in how people watch movies...as well as some great deep conversations. :)
