Well folks it happened. I now live within the Land of Smiles...or the Sailor's Paradise. Straight from the wooded hills of Missouri, 9000 miles from my old home, I now live in Bangkok. Why? Trying to start a center for autism services in Asia. Wish me sanity and wish them luck.
All Time Favorite Movies:
Wow, hope this has enough space. Ok, Star Wars Originals, Princess Bride, Rocky Horror Picture Show, The Truman Show, Dark City, City of Lost Children, American Psycho, Donnie Darko, Ghostbusters, Die Hard series, Indiana Jones series, Lord of the Rings series, Akira, Nausicca of the Valley of the Winds, Ri-ki-oh, and so on. Look, I tend to like sci-fi, fantasy and anime...and it'd take way too damn long to mouth them all. So how about i just let you know if a movie pisses me off enough to skin the cast with potato peelers, eh?
All Time Worst Movies:
Roger Corman films, all of them. Romantic Comedies (we should make them against the law). Disney, period. Battlefield Earth. Catwoman. Gigli. Aragon. TV Stephen King movies/series. My BIGGEST pet peeve is movies based on other people's work that the director didn't bother to look at and just made up their own story. You hear me Joel? One dark day I will hunt your ass down, stick a shotgun like the Big Black Cock of Death down your throat and blow your brains down to Thailand!! Bang, baby.
Favorite Actors or Actresses:
Hugo Weaving, Harrison Ford, Kate Blancet,...and I forget the rest...ah well, they got paid.
I dont think Punk ever did Chikara but Chikara is probably my favorite promotion ever right next to ECW and the WWF in their prime. Hell the Colony is so freaking awesome just all the talent and goofiness that goes on in Chikara is awesome.
Obviously I'm a Corman fan, as is evidenced by the movies I listed in the last message. Those are my personal favorites of his, but I'll admit he's also made just as many garbage movies as cult classics.
I think that sometimes having no budget forces one to be more creative. My least favorite movies are generally the ones that either hide a weak story behind a pile of money and special effects (Transformers, Attack of the Clones, etc.) or those that are made only for the cash grab of a recognized franchise (Transformers, Attack of the Clones, etc.)
I don't expect everyone out there to see things my way; it would be a boring world if everyone had the same opinion about everything. Disagreement is part of what makes this website so much fun. But I'm glad you can give props to something you don't personally like. Respect is another thing that makes this website fun.
Every Roger Corman film? Even The Pit and the Pendulum? The Little Shop of Horrors? Death Race 2000? A Bucket of Blood? Tales of Terror? X: The Man With the X Ray Eyes? All of them? Damn, that's harsh.
