I'M NOT a film critic, just a passionate movie buff. I was born in 1971, studied film in New York during the early ‘90s, and have lived and worked on the far, far, far outskirts of the industry all my adult life.
This project is about seeing as many films as possible in a lifetime while still maintaining an actual life. I post my frank and candid views in the hope that others will seek out the films I consider worthwhile and important. The more familiar you are with my opinions, the more you’ll know how and if they align with yours.
I love sharing films and perspectives on cinema, and I have so much yet to see. If you’d like to recommend a film, please contact me. firstname.lastname@example.org
One of the 5000 greatest films. Usually only awarded after repeat viewings, so there are more five-star films from decades past than recent years.
An excellent film. Possibly one of the 5000 and certainly worthy of repeated viewing.
A good film well worth seeing. Films listed at the top of this ranking could end up one of the 5000.
A disappointment, an interesting failure, or just a bad movie. Still, maybe worth seeing: I often enjoy the top two-star films in a given list more than the bottom three-star films.
A bad, rant-worthy film. Should be avoided regardless of hype or talent involved.
One of the worst films.
