Actually, I used to be a filmaholic but I've been clean for the last three years. I should be watching more movies but life seems to get in the way these days. That and being forced at gunpoint by Dawn Summers to watch the entire Buffy and Angel series. I find it very surprising that I never watched these when they originally aired - they were made specifically for my goth/industrial lifestyle back then. Ah well, I'm getting off topic.
I thought I do a simple introduction, no fanfare. I was going to list some of my favourite directors and why they are on the list but instead, I'll just use some pretty pictures.
My posts here will most likely be sporadic but in September, a friend of mine and Dawn Summers is producing a Comedy Film Festival for the Friars Club so I'm sure to have some reviews from that. I know he's got the latest Coen Brothers film for opening night and as you'll see from the pretty pictures below, I'm a Coen Brothers fan so there will be a review.
Okay, enough rambling.
Some of my fav directors (in alphabetical order):
Tim Burton, Edward Scissorhands
The Coen Brothers, O Brother Where Art Thou?
Terry Gilliam, Brazil
Stanley Kubrick, A Clockwork Orange
David Lynch, Eraserhead
I'm also a big fan of animation. I try to go to all the animation film festivals so hopefully I'll have some reviews for you. Here are some of my fav animation directors/studios:
The Brothers Quay, Street of Crocodiles
Hayao Miyazaki, Studio Ghibli, Spirited Away
Nick Park, Aardman Animations, The Wrong Trousers
Pixar Animation Studios, Toy Story
