I, sadly, fear I am afflicted with the same list making compulsion that John Cusack's character had in "High Fidelity"

A blog about the films I watch and how they affect my everyday life. I am an affirmed film “buff,” and watch an average of three films per day, usually. I like to write reviews and present my opinions to those who give a crap, and enjoy hearing their feedback, too. Today I’ve been very busy and haven’t had a chance to watch any films yet (gasp!) but I can assure you I’ll be getting down to it ASAP. I don’t have a particularly large DVD collection (128 and counting…) but I enjoy watching and buying my favourite films. I have a Top 100 Movies list which I regularly update and features films ranging from 1931 to 2010 (the oldest being M and the newest Black Swan).

Because I watch a lot of movies, I like to think I have a respectable point of view on what’s right and wrong in them. I also like to think I have a sense of humour, perhaps too much of one, considering that at one point in my life I considered Caddyshack the greatest comedy ever made (for anyone that’s curious, my favourite comedy is Dr. Strangelove, which is #5 on my Top 100 list.) I’m also a bit of a compulsive list maker, with my own Top 10 opinions of many subjects, usually things to do with Film and TV.

That’s it for this post, so I will see you guys next time.

  1. THREE FILMS A DAY?!?! Wow. I thought my 10-12 per week habit was a bit out of control. But three is impressive.

    I’d really like to see that top 100 list.

    • I’m a little bit nervous about posting my Top 100 list, obviously because of criticism. But I trust you, John and alas, since I should probably be embracing criticism, I shall post it for you*

      *eventually.

      • Bah… criticism, schmiticism. It’s all good for an open discussion. Plus, you have to figure folks will know that there’s no way to make a list like that objectively. If there were, talking about movies would be really boring. I think it’d be a fantastic way to put a personal imprint on your blog here, to let people know what your likes and dislikes are, and where you’re coming from when you discuss it. I have no doubts it’d be a great list.
