My single favorite scene in the history of film, from the Stanley Kubrick masterpiece 2001: A Space Odyssey
My name is Scott Anderson, and I am truly passionate about film.
I'm not a know it all. I don't believe my opinion is right, it is an opinion and I respect each and every one I come across. Often times I love a movie and someone else downright loathes it. That's okay. The next day I may watch something that I can barely sit through and find out another person treasures it, and that's okay too. Art is subjective, and I am not offended by what people connect to as long as they connect to anything at all. So go ahead and tell me my favorite movies suck. Hell, tell me my review sucks, I don't mind, I can take it. As long as you are reading my words in the first place, it means the world to me.
I am 32 years old and I live in the suburbs of Chicago with my amazing wife and daughter. I work a regular desk job during the day, at which I daydream about going home and being able to spend time with my family, and then I cherish the opportunity to turn the lights out late at night and watch a movie. Watching as well as writing about film is what I love to do, and I hope you enjoy reading some of my thoughts even half as much as I enjoy writing them.
I don't believe in the idea of bad genres. Romantic comedy? Bring it on, there have been plenty of wonderful films that fit this description. Gore porn horror? Not usually my cup of tea, but I will give it a shot and hope to be surprised. A film is either good or bad, no matter who the intended target audience is, and I am willing to watch absolutely anything and keep an open mind.
