I’ve been writing since the age of 8 or 9. As I progressed in my writing I began to write screenplays around the age of 16. Now in my early thirties, I’ve completed over 40 short and 5-7 full-length scripts.
I remember going with my friends to see the first Iron Man film back in 2008 when I was a sophmore in high school, and I remember how excited each of us were to see this movie was just so electric. We had seen the trailers for it dozens of times, seen the shirts and other merchandise at countless stores in the mall and the general anticipation surrounding this movie.
Sitting at a hotel bar in Detroit, I thought of numerous topics to cover, all of which were complete and total shit. I paid my tab, collected myself and took the elevator to the 7th floor. Then I somehow managed to find my keycard whilst the room was gyrating. When I got into the room I stumbled into the world of the Netflix original series Mindhunter. When I came to it was 10 or so hours later, and I was somewhat emotionally scarred. Let’s get into it.
Last month I wrote an article about an awesome new subscription service called Movie Pass. The subscription gets you a movie a day for only 10 dollars a mouth with the only catch being that your moviegoing data is used for target advertising, not a bad deal in my book Google and FaceBook have been doing it for years.
The other day I was driving to fill up my gas tank and I had an inkling to listen to the Titanic Original Motion Picture Soundtrack (don’t judge me). To this very day I cannot listen to James Horner’s “Hymn to the Sea” without my eyes welling up (I can’t even watch the movie without a few tears escaping me).
It's that time of year again; when the leaves start to fall, when we can start enjoying all of the pumpkin spiced things and of course, watch some great horror and thriller movies with Halloween right around the corner! I wanted to look at ten movies and shows that I feel deserve to be watched by anyone who considers themselves a fan of the genres. Some of these you might've seen already and some you might not have ever heard of, either way enjoy!
I first heard about Horace and Pete by listening to WTF with Marc Maron while on a roadtrip from LA to Dallas. At a glance you could assume that this show was just another sad-boy story told by Louis CK; however, what if I told you that it would be, but that there would be no rules? Louie created, directed, wrote, starred and financed it all by himself with a brilliant cast.
