Ask Me Anything Challenge!


4184354-the_riddler_by_gabriel_cassata-d5mhkh4Taking a cue from my good friend Vinnie and my new friend Diego, I decided to make a post dedicated to all of my readers.

Is there anything you’d like to know about me (movie-wise or otherwise) but were too shy (or afraid) to ask?

Well, now’s ur chance!

Feel free to ask me anything ur heart desires about my love of movies, my rapid fire ability to watch and review more than 2300 movies in 3 years, my dislike of the horror genre, my nearly 5000 films watched in my lifetime or anything else u can think of!

Huge thanks again to Vinnie and Diego for letting me steal their idea…

  1. All good bro! Here are some standard and random q’s:
    1) When and why did you start blogging?
    2) What do you do when you’re not reviewing movies?
    3) Favourite drink? Alcoholic or otherwise.
    4) If you could only eat one food for the rest of you life, what would it be?
    5) Most life changing film? Changed the way you think about life or the world?

    • Excellent q Allie. All the time. When one watches 3 movies a day (on avg), it all depends on my mood at the time. Some of the movies on my (ever-expanding list) have been stuck there for years because I’m just not in the mood for it, while others are watched the same day I get them. Sometimes, I just flip a coin between a few choices.

  2. Q: Did you develop your current “subheadings” style of reviewing over time or is it what you started with? Do you thing prose type/essay reviews are better or worse and have you tried anything substantially different through the years? Finally: where do you see your movie blog in say 5 years? 😉 Thanks for tagging me!

    • Excellent q’s Damien!

      Its actually what I started with. I only added the trivia after a year or so to make things a bit more interesting.

      I like the structure because it allows people to decide what they want to read depending on how much time they want to devote to my reviews.

      To get a full gist of my thoughts, first one can look at the rating, followed by the Bottom Line or read the whole review which expands on the bottom line.

      Some of my reviews are slightly different, but I like the structure.

      5 years? I hope to be well beyond 5000 reviews by then :), but at my current rate, I should be by 5600 or so 🙂

      • Great answers! I love your format, especially how the different subheadings give the reader a chance to read your review or just get some particulars. I’m still looking for a standard format. I like Ebert’s essay style but the idea of a series of standard subheadings appeals to me as well. The spoiler is always a looming specter: whether to include and notify or always leave out. Then again, some people view all details as spoiler material so the subheading way may be the best. Thanks!

  3. Great challenge, Rob!
    How do you manage to get access to all these movies?
    Watching so many films, do you ever feel like you’re just skimming or paying more attention to some than others?
    Is there a certain Oscar year that you agreed with all the Academy’s choices?
    What are your favorite TV shows?

    • Great q’s
      1) I’m talented:)
      2) Of course, especially the ones that I dont feel a connection for, sometimes it’s a chore to finish a bad (or even terrible) movie, so I pay less attention. IT drives my wife crazy that I’ll suffer through a movie I dont like cause she’ll just change the channel if it gets bad
      3) I assume u mean or Best Pic? 1994 or 1999 are two of my favorite Oscar BP years (Forrest Gump, Shawshank, Pulp Fiction, Four Weddings and Quiz Show) (Green Mile, Sixth Sense, American Beauty, Cider House Rules and The Insider)
      4) all time or now?

      • I know what you mean about finishing bad movies. My VC is the same way, content to switch off whatever doesn’t interest her, but unless it’s something really offensive, I usually like to stick with whatever I start.
        I actually meant for all the Academy categories. Usually there’s at least one I think could have gone a better way.
        As for TV shows, how about favorites both of all time and now.
