My daily movie / film reviews including plot summaries (no endings revealed), ratings, and opinions.
Films from all decades - silent era to the present! Ratings are on a scale from 1 to 10 stars, 10 stars being the best.

Okay - still trying to catch up with this. I am going to try posting each film on the day I see it, as I did when I started this blog. Seems like it was easier to keep up with that way. Starting with the film I watched today.
So many movies, so little time! I would call myself an "extreme" movie buff - I'm pretty much the type who wants to see every worthwhile film ever made. I enjoy watching movies from all decades and, really, most genres and like to watch at least one movie (or more, if I have the time) every day. I tend towards the early and the rare - I do have a special love for silent films.
I also love reading and collecting books - I have a large home library of more than a few thousand books. I love history, visiting historic sites, museums, L.A. history.
I collect antique photographs from the early 1900s and 1800s.
And another hobby is cooking, collecting cookbooks, and trying out new recipes. And - hurrah for cocktail hour! (Margaritas, Martinis, Mai Tais and other tropical drinks, White Russians, Black Russians, red wine, and dark beer - that's what I'm talkin' about!) :)
There are many, many. many films I love, my favorite movies (below) are just a few through the decades that I find myself watching "over and over" again.
