Confessions:

I cried when Glen Campbell died in True Grit.

I never could stand Star Wars.

I loved and owned Grease and Staying Alive albums.

I participated in the Rocky Horror Picture Show mania in theaters.

Thought Miles O'keeffe from Tarzan, The Ape Man was the most handsome Adonis to ever grace the big screen.

and I was a cult classic horror fanatic and would rather see films such as The Shining over Blue Lagoon, when I was 12.

yeah, I even got a kick out of Shaun of the Dead.

and I've never been so mad at a bad ending in my life than when I watched Message in a Bottle, which made me swear off Sparks.

Regina,

Great idea to do the confessions thing! I have a few of my own:


I thought Citizen Kane was dull and so, so overrated.

Raging Bull is also overrated.

I never liked French New Wave until recently.

Yeah, I never liked Star Wars either.

I think Peter Jackson is a story harvester.

Every Dirty Harry sequel needs to be forgotten.

The only good thing about Pale Rider was the end.

There is no actress prettier or cooler than Judy Davis.

I got caught up in Dogme95 and am still into it.

I once called Lars von Trier in a report my distant uncle and Werner Herzog the cinema messiah.

Geez Christopher -- how many of those titles haven't YOU seen?  

But, you do the math -- that's 89 movies at about 90 minutes per, over a 40 year period...  

B'sides that -- on my confession list -- I used to be part owner of a video store chain...  and to this day I still can't believe the people who would come in night after night after night and take home three of em at a time.

My other confession -- unlike Ron, I wait for the Cliff Notes!
