I’m watching "Ebert Presents At the Movies" right now and they’re discussing the 5 movies that made them critics. What are the 5 that made you a critic or a film lover?
The five films that made me a film lover: the first is "Stand by Me", because I love a coming of age story with foolmouthed kids. Second is "The Shawshank Redemption", because it is the perfect movie. I dare you to find a flaw in it. I double dog dare you. Next are "Shakespeare in Love" and "Saving Private Ryan" because I was theater nerd in high school and they made me want to watch my first Oscars ever. Last but not least is "Brokeback Mountain", I recently reviewed and I shared my expierence of watching the movie when it was in limited release. Having that shared expierence made me love the cinema.
