Movies Addiction

I have loved movies for as far as I can remember. As I kid, in spite of not having all my teeth, I would say that I would make movies one day.

My taste in movies has refined a lot over the past few years, but it still remains quite varied.

My preference goes to unordinary movies: those that break the normal course of telling a story, those with special colors, etc. My favorite director is Tim Burton. The colors in his movies are awesome. Same for pretty much every thing else in them.

I also like George Mélies, an awesome French director who made movies in the early times of cinema.

Just to name a few movies I like: Beetle Juice, Corpse Bride, Edward Scissorhands, Evil Dead series, Batman, Batman Returns, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Catch Me If You Can, A Clockword Orange, The Shining, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, The Princess Bride, Taxi Driver, Hot Fuzz, Pan’s Labyrinth, Psycho, Romeo and Juliet (1968 and 1996), Star Wars original trilogy…You can view my joined fanlisting in the Movies category.

In general, I am more likely to enjoy a movie if it is rather dreamy, straying away from methodical realism to escape into a different world. La science des rêves (The Science of Sleep) by Michel Gondry would be an example.

I used to enjoy teen movies a lot, but this taste has faded a lot, probably as I grew older.

I have never been truly initiated to Asian movies, but many I have seen were excellent, and there are more I wish to see.

I think the British make excellent comedies.
