|I'm your run-of-the-mill closet movie critic. A while back I started making a list of the foreign, "off-Hollywood", or art films that I had seen. Some of my friends commented that it would be much more helpful if Iwould also give my thoughts on them, so I did. What came from that is Brian's Artsy-Fartsy Movie List|
|In it, I briefly review every artsy or foreign film that I've ever seen. It's a blurry line as far as what qualifies, so you might wonder why some movies were left off, but others included. Well, it's kind of arbitrary. I tried to picture if it was a movie that you and eight of your friends would likely rent on a Friday night. If not, it went on the list.|
|I've included some links to other pages that might interest movie buffs, if you haven't already run across these:|
- The Internet Movie Database - The master database of every movie and TV show you could think of.
- Complete Film Listings - The inside scoop on all the upcoming or rumored movies
- MovieLink (777-FILM) - has showtimes for most major cities in the USA.
- RARE - Gives suggestions for movies and TV shows based on your tastes. I've entered most of the movies I've seen into it, so you can simulate my recommendations for movies!
- Stupid Computer Tricks - I'm a real stickler for believability in movies. This page is a gripe list of bogus computer scenes in movie. A treat for picky people like me.
- Mr. Cranky Rates the Movies - If you think I'm tough on movies, check out this page!
|I don't watch much TV these days, but there are a couple of programs I try not to miss. I've listed some web pages for them here:|
| The X-Files - Best spooky show since Twin Peaks.|
|Bill Nye the Science Guy - Bill! Bill! Bill! Bill!|
|Strange Luck - A fantastic show that FOX seems to have cancelled.|
|Twin Peaks - The coolest mindwarper ever to appear on television! It's been gone for a long time but was my favorite since it was such a whacked show.|
