Welcome to my blog!

Most of you who will be reading this blog know me.  If you know me you know that I absolutely love movies.  There are few things I enjoy as much as going to see a movie.  Some of my fondest memories as a child are of me going to the Stanford Theater and watching old movies with my Dad.  Jimmy Stewart, Cary Grant, and Humphrey Bogart were my favorite actors as a kid.  Then came Star Wars and that changed everything.  After Star Wars I really began to believe in movie magic, I believed that movies could take you to places you would never go and no matter what was going on in your life they could give you two to three hours away from all your problems and worries.  As I have gotten older my love of movies has not faded, it has only grown.  I find myself going to 3-5 movies a month and renting the ones I did not see in the theater.

This blog is an attempt for me to share that love with my friends and family.  I will be reviewing the movies I see and hopefully these reviews will either inspire you to spend your time seeing a particular film or will save you from seeing a flop.  Full disclaimer:  I have very weird taste in movies.  My two favorite movies are Mr. Smith Goes to Washington and Roadhouse.  I also think that Black Dynamite was one of the best films of 2009, a year that included Up, Up in the Air, Inglorious Basterds, The Hurt Locker and Avatar.

I hope you enjoy my reviews…
