What areas are you interested in attending events in?

I live in Bellevue, so I'm interested in events that don't require too much driving: Redmond, Kirkland, and Seattle are all feasible for me, but Lincoln Square Cinema is ideal.

What are your favorite movie genres or films?

I'm not sure I have a genre that I enjoy as a rule. Certainly, I see action/sci-fi/fantasy most of the time, though I will occasionally have a go at a drama or suspense film that looks interesting, and a comedy on rare occasions. When I was growing up, I had a very low tolerance for anything that could be considered "scary" in a movie. But now that I'm a bit more desensitized, I've been trying out a number of horror films, and have been far from traumatized by even the most gruesome ones. (I think horror is fantastic when done well, but is done well rarely.) I give a great deal of credit to a film that is genuinely unique or successfully entertaining, though I have high expectations for that kind of praise. I'm also willing to try out some family-friendly children's films, as long as there appears to be at least a little entertainment value for adults. My favorite movie is Walt Disney's "Atlantis". I saw it three times in the same weekend, and love the concepts, dialogue, and pace.

What other types of entertainment are you interested in?

I enjoy contra dance, attending theater, exploring local bars and restaurants, and video games. I'm also a massive chocolate fan, and have been sampling the various dessert options around town (and am open to suggestions!). I've also picked up a number of songs over the years - I once tried counting how many I knew by heart, and the number turned out to be in the hundreds [masked], depending on how you slice it). If you're having trouble recalling the entirety of "American Pie" or want an impromptu serenade of Tom Lehrer's "The Elements", I'm your guy.

Introduction

I'm a recent graduate, living in Bellevue since July 2012. I've been seeing a number of movies in my free time, and love discussing and critiquing films, both new and old. I especially enjoy films that are different from anything I've seen before.
