About my collections

My collection can beat up your collection.

Currently reading whatever my daughter wants read to her. Hopefully one day soon she'll figure out how to read & I can read for myself again. Not that I don't enjoy reading to her, but I miss reading for me.

Red Eye
Re-watch - Aug. 30th
I'd intended to revisit School of Rock on this night, but then I saw the news that Wes Craven died. At that point I decided instead to watch the only film of his I have access to & have NOT seen in the past 5 years, Red Eye. It's possible that the last time I watched this was in the theatre, and yet it still stuck with me enough that I remembered the majority of it. The film excels thanks to its leads who deliver wonderful performances & the direction which keeps it all moving along well. I was on the edge of my seat at times, which is always a sign a thriller is doing its job, and the story is still relevant. Craven delivered a very solid thriller, and it left me wishing he'd been able to do more of them. I'll definitely miss Wes Craven as time goes by. Nightmare on Elm Street is largely responsible for bringing me back to horror movies as I entered adolescence, and the best of the rest of his films helped fuel that fire. Films like The Hills Have Eyes, The Serpent and the Rainbow, Scream, and New Nightmare are effective horror experiences, but there's a sense of humor in all of them that's equally well handled. Craven made me think and laugh, and he passed along a few nightmares of his own over the years to my slumber. Farewell, Wes, and thank you for leaving behind so many excellent films so we can keep spending time with you despite your absence.

First viewing - Aug. 30th
I wound up my trio of older films with this one, which Netflix highly recommended to me a while back & has been sitting in wait ever since. I'm always down to watch Audrey Hepburn, and thought she was well-paired here with Peter O'Toole. The film is smart, funny, and well-paced, with a solid cast and consistent levels of entertainment. It's not a great film, but it's definitely worth watching & I thought it was on par with It Happened One Night overall. Which means I spent today with three films I'd never seen before but would gladly watch again, and that's a day well spent in my book. Currently streaming on Netflix

The Hole
First viewing - June 20th
Somehow I completely forgot to add this to my list back in June, probably because the film is fairly forgettable. If you wanted a more modern but less entertaining version of The Gate, this is the film for you. It's not bad, just mediocre given some of the films Joe Dante has made throughout his career. I was entertained enough to hang with it, but ultimately I only mildly enjoyed it. Definitely nothing I'd recommend. Currently streaming on Netflix

About me

A few notes to my fellow Listal users:


- If we have NOT interacted on here in some way (an exchange of votes, comments, messages, etc.) then I will DENY your friend request. That said, I'm always open to finding new people that share my interests, I just don't like adding people as friends when I have no idea who they are.
- I used to stop by everyone's profile to say thanks for votes, but lately it seems like people don't care much about that. So if you vote for something of mine, just know that it's appreciated & I thank you. I may still occasionally say thanks, but I'm not going to make a frequent habit of it anymore.
- I will definitely drop by your profile to discuss comments, unless you don't have a comments section where I can do so. In such cases I will most likely reply in a comment that follows yours.
- PLEASE only leave me comments to check out lists that you know I'd be interested in. And for the record I'm NEVER interested in lists of "hot" people, unless there's some content mocking them or something to make them interesting. I can find eye candy just fine if I want to, thanks.

Thanks for the support. Right now, I am currently vacationing in Puerto Rico. I will admit I was previously busy and spent not much time making lists and such. Hopefully, I can return to that soon. Listal is a fun website to contribute stuff to. I appreciate the work you've done and everyone else has done on the site.

Yeah, I mean, geez, we had a filmic get-together with a bunch of people and watched 21 features and a handful of shorts between thursday and sunday. I'll totally write those comments but man will it take me a long-ass while.

So I did see Aerosmith a few days ago and it was the best concert I've been to so far. I would say more about it, but I wrote quite a bit about it on my concert list, so check that out if you want to.

I don't wanna reveal much about my new movie, but I will say this...

Title and stuff will be announced via an announcement trailer that will be released soon after I start shooting in mid-August. Until then, speculate away!

I actually met a girl from this talent website, and she's super keen on my current project and is going to help me with casting and so on. And she'll probably serve as a 1st AD on some of my movies. I have booku time at the moment, so I figure it's best to use the time wisely.

I've chewed through 70 action films this month... 6 days to go. The master list keeps being updated and I get more and more recommendations. Oh good. Lol.

Oh, here's my Scott Adkins interview. It got about 50,000 hits.

Haha, I don't think I'll ever get sick of action movies. But I might throw in some variety by grabbing a Jackie Chan or a Donnie Yen or something else in the mix once in a while.

Social commitments have been sneaking in (currently not working due to injury), and of course tomorrow all day will be spent travelling to the Terminator event, so whenever I have free days I am going to chew through movies relentlessly. I go the gym in the morning these days, so I have the day free and I won't make excuses to not go lol.
Posted: 3 months ago at Jun 2 15:26
Just in case you haven't seen my month of action list lately, two days in and seven titles down. Four on the first day, three on the second. Hoping to maintain this average.

Oh, I'm heading to a Terminator Genisys event on Thursday night. Half an hour of preview footage, and a Q&A with Arnie in person. Heh.

Glad you also loved Mad Max Fury Road, the internet is full of insecure males who keep calling it feminist propaganda, lol.

I've been a Mad Max fan for about 10 years, and it satisfied me greatly. The original Mad Max was the very first R18+ movie (Australian rating, equivalent of NC-17) that I owned on DVD. And I wasn't even 18. Hehe.
