Welcome

I'm from Chicago. I have a job, a house, and several cats that technically belong to my girlfriend. I like music and I've been in a few bands, but apparently I'm not all that good at it. I'm into social media, tech, and graphic design. I love movies and I love writing, so I started this site.

I write reviews and critiques of films from every genre - horror, action, crime, science fiction, comedy, noir, western - older classics and slick new releases and everything in between, even exploitation and b-movies. I view the cinema as a medium of art which also serves functionally as entertainment; a film should be examined not only for its aesthetic and creative offerings, but also for it's capacity to charm and engage. This is a hobby of mine, something I do for fun, but something I do take seriously. I'm always open to discussion, suggestions, comments, or other interpretations; feel free to hit me up here or on social media.

Oh, yeah ... Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey is my absolute favorite movie, which is why this site is loosely themed around it. My name isn't Dave.


I enjoy working with people. I have a stimulating relationship with Dr. Poole and Dr. Bowman. My mission responsibilities range over the entire operation of the ship so I am constantly occupied. I am putting myself to the fullest possible use which is all, I think, that any conscious entity can ever hope to do.

As I've continued working on this site, writing and sharing content with old friends and with the new ones I'm making, I've begun to realize just how many people out there love discussing the movies and genres they're passionate about. Check them out!
