Category Archives: FILM FORUM

I was a late bloomer when it came to movies. My parents were not against movies but we didn’t watch many at home when I was growing up. Once I got to college that all changed and I immediately tried watching everything I could and soak up any information about “classics” or “must see’s” and add them to my ever-expanding list of films to catch up on. What assisted me most in this endeavor was movie sites, and more specifically the discussion boards on movie sites. Film fanatics debating movies, comparing to other offerings, bringing up obscure indie flicks that I never would have discovered on my own; those talkbacks are what really fueled my film passion and expanded my viewing experience. That’s why I have this separate section. Discussion is encouraged after any post on this blog, but this area is intended exclusively for dialogue. Here will be one shot topics that everyone can share their opinions on whether it’s dream casting, favorite movie lists, debates over current popular rumors or events, whatever it might be. Differing opinions are welcome, just please be respectful in this forum.
