About Me

"Roads? Where we're going, we don't need roads."

I love movies, classic movies in particular, mostly because they allow you to escape from everyday life, away from the stress, noise, annoyances, etc. With movies, you can be transported anywhere: Sherwood Forest in medieval England; A noisy club in a N. African city during WWII; Hollywood during the roaring 20s during the advent of "talkies," anywhere on Earth, anywhere someone can dream up, you can go there. It's cliché, but they just don't make 'em like that anymore. I don't know what it is, but classic films have a "je ne sais quoi" about them.
