Film Friends

When I had my son I was told something that rang so true: No one tires out a little boy, like another little boy.
To spin that on people who work in Entertainment: No one loves talking film more than people who work in film.
I’m living proof. I’ve spent my career in Television and Film starting at age 18 and continue to put 10-15 hour days into my craft (currently directing a series on one of the services)… and I can’t get enough. I can’t get enough of listening to people who speak the language. Of people who evaluate the technical as well as the emotion. People who know what shot selection and scene transitions are. People who describe action on screen like waxing poetry… because it is…. It’s visual poetry.
I’ve come to count on you three gentlemen to do the heavy legwork my schedule doesn’t allow, and to parcel out the gems I’ll be searching up on the weekend. Your obvious friendship and affection for each other mirrors my group of friends and I love hearing your playful banter, and sometimes serious conversation, as much as the assessments of the day.
Just wanted to say thank you for your love of film and always bringing a smile to my face. :)

Jtempkin ,

Come for the film reviews stay for the

Limerick's!

flangeslammer ,

it’s so bad. good lord.

increasingly, their whole schtick is just a big ol’ morality play. let me tell you, folks, there could be no more boring and less thought provoking prism to discuss art thru than “oh sir, please, won’t you think of the / my children!”. Example 1,034 - their laughably pathetic review of Hit Man on Netflix. these guys are a waste of your time. just don’t.
