I like to think of myself as an aspiring film buff. I have only recently fallen in love with film and started watching classic and cult films. I still have so many to get through; hence the term ‘aspiring film buff’. I hope to use this website/blog as an outlet to discuss films and TV shows that I love, and maybe even some that I hate. I was born and raised in California.
What I Will Post
On this website, I will be reviewing and analyzing films and television shows that I hold passionate opinions about. I hope to keep my opinions respectful and recognize what the creators of the work were trying to accomplish. I hope to talk about more than just whether or not a film was good or bad, and instead offer more analytical thinking on the art and creative aspects of the work.
What to Keep in Mind
Please try to be respectful of my opinions, as they are just opinions and I will try my best to not present them as facts. Secondly, I am not a seasoned or experienced writer, so please excuse me if my writing sometimes comes off as awkward, poorly structured, or badly worded. Just know that I am doing my best, and I hope that I can improve as a writer through this experience.
My Favorite Films and TV Shows
Now, I am more of a film fan than a TV show fan, so I have seen more films and can apply more experience and knowledge to that area. That said, currently, my all-time favorite TV show is Breaking Bad. I’d say The Office is a close second, but they are two very different shows. My favorite film has to be Pulp Fiction, and Quentin Tarantino currently stands as my favorite director and screenwriter. I also adore City of God, Casablanca, The Shawshank Redemption, Reservoir Dogs, Inception, The Dark Knight, Parasite, Hunt for the Wilderpeople, Shaun of the Dead, The Shining, Jurassic Park, JoJo Rabbit, Saving Private Ryan, Waking Ned Devine, The Grand Budapest Hotel, Isle of Dogs, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, Spirited Away, Die Hard, Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, Guardians of the Galaxy, Goodfellas, Chungking Express, Jaws, Inglourious Basterds, and Interstellar. Finally, I’d like to say that I think the best films are the ones that can serve as art but also entertainment. I think that if a film can do one but not the other, it’s not a good film.
