    I love movies like a fiend. Seriously, I worry for myself. But the thing that kills me is the amount of phony movies coming out these days. Movies that are just plain annoying. Movies you can tell that the Actors are working their tails off to win an award or get great critical reviews. Movies where you can tell right away why a Director decided on a particular kind of camera pan or slow-mo thingy just to impress the audience.Movies with hardly any depth,hardly any reality.I don't anyone can connect. All movie buffs oughtta,though.And  what happened to the dark comedies?Glad the Brits are at least showing Hollywood the ropes, with flicks like Love Stock and Two Smoking Barrells, Snatch, Hot Fuzz, Layer Cake, Dead Fish, Rock N Rolla,etc. Yes, Guy Ritchie is the man! And if not for a few like Tarantino, Scorcese, Coen Brothers, Scott Brothers, Rodriguez and a some others. Hollywood would be screwed, for real. With all the phony movies coming out these days. Yes, Inglorious Bastards! Tarantino has done it again!

      These are all horrible movies and directors. The best movie ever is Nacho Libre.

      Okay, I think the Crying Game is the best movie ever.
