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.
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!
A surprising and thoroughly enjoyable film, [REC] roots itself in the real world just enough to stand tall where most of its peers stumble.
An iconic work from a man who would become a legend, this is a film you've almost already seen, owing to its towering influence on the genre.
Beneath scores points for the ride, but it gets lost in a mountain of other horror flicks - the ones that won't take the time to dig a little deeper.
We Are What We Are has more to offer than you might suspect, and its secrets - while haunting - are no match for the darker struggles of human existence it uncovers.
Final Girl just barely makes it into the so-bad-it's-good category, but only if you can manage to look past how seriously it takes itself.
The Killing dives deeper than expected and reveals more with each visit, an energetic and determined debut from a master of the form.
Hard To Kill combines over-the-top action, a ridiculous story, and a hilariously clichéd soundtrack into something Mason Storm himself couldn't resist.
Tusk is an interesting idea that's partly well-executed but ultimately a drifting mess, anchored only by a very solid Michael Parks.
