A Little Introduction

So my first post was a little harsh. Not only did I spew hate upon Scott Derrickson's The Day The Earth Stood Still, but I didn't even introduce myself. So, here goes.

Hi. I'm Mitch. I'm just your average film studies major in college. And in case you haven't guessed, I love movies. One of my least favorite questions is, "What kind of movies do you like, Mitch?" I like all kinds of movies. Except for movies that suck. while some people might try to tell you that suckiness is relative, I adamantly believe that some films are good and some are terrible. This is not debatable.

I do not enjoy arguing with people about films. I usually get so angry that I become much less eloquent than my normal, calm self. That's why I decided to start a blog. Now I can voice my (correct) opinion in a way that won't offend (many) people.

I hope you enjoyed this little introduction, and stay tuned for a movie review bonanza tomorrow as Doubt and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button hit theaters.

Hi, I'm Quinten. I'm just your average philosophy major in college. And in case you haven't guessed, i enjoy agitating Mitch. I'm going to have to oppose your combative stance of film discussion. The most fruitful method of film analyzation is undoubtably a group effort. Without digesting the opinions of your peers you limit the scope of your understanding of the film. Your endeavors here in this blog, however, do offer a variant opinion that the readers may meld with their own thoughts and thus reach a greater plane of appreciation for certain movies. Although you may be retarding the growth of you own film comprehension, you are most definitely empowering the masses to do the opposite. Due to this fact I applaud you, Mitch, for the creation of this fine blog.

B-b-but what if the rest of the group in said group effort are not as omniscient as me?

And thanks for the applause :)
