The Good, The Bad, and the Popcorn-y
The goal for this blog is for me to deliver more direct movie summaries that skip more of the fluff and deliver the goods. The story, the good, the bad, and my overall take on it. For those of you who just want to know if you should see it or not, read the ratings and headlines of the films. Click read more if you want to see the details about the reviews. If you're tired of reviews, I've got you covered: I've also decided to include movie news in the form of posters, weekend box office results, articles, lists, trailers, and more celluloid juiciness. From time to time my bud Griff will stop by for a review or a even a trusty news article or two as well. Happy threading. (If you can't tell I dig this pic).
Me, Myself, and also Me.
Howdy. My name is Robert, but friends call me Vern. I'm a proud cinefile (not as creepy as it sounds...) and I write, direct and edit movies. When I'm not doing that, I'm watching movies -- as many as I can -- and reviewing them here for you. I've found that my tastes are unpredictable; conventional to bizarre, formulaic to abstract, old-school to ahead of the curve. I've seen enough to have perspective but am still young enough to need a lift to the theater. Let me know what ya' think. Favorite directors you might ask? I'd have to settle between John Carpenter, Ridley Scott, Edgar Wright, John McTiernan, Quentin Tarantino, and David Fincher. Favorite film? Well that would have to be the definitive action-holiday classic Die Hard (1988) of course. On that note, I guess the only thing left to say in the immortal words of my New York-based, quip-spewing action hero is, "Yippie Kai Yay...", well, you know the rest.
