Of primary concern to me when reviewing films is the effectiveness of the writer/director’s storytelling ability. If the story is captivating, I will forgive minor casting failures or location inconsistencies. I admit that this is a very subjective method, but I’m a sucker for a good story.
To define my favorite kind of movie is really difficult. My tastes range from sci-fi (though I’m not one for the really obscure films) to rom-coms to period drama. I’ve also become fascinated over the last year with the sci-fi sub-genre of zombie films (28 Days Later, Zombieland, Shawn of the Dead). Told you my tastes were all over the board. [smile]
Here I’ll post movie reviews as I see films. I give a rating of zero to 5 stars. Please don’t consider me the movie expert. Take it all with a grain of salt.
