About kaymayer

As a student I have quite a bit of free time on my hand that should be spent doing something productive. Procrastination has become a necessity rather than a nuisance. Since I was 16 I started collecting, if you will, movies of all different genres, languages, ratings. I don't rent, I only buy; and I can only imagine what kind of house I could afford if I hadn't picked up this nasty habit. Popcorn filled hours, permanent butt couch crease, countless hours trying to find a movie that has been placed in another case. It might seem useless to you, or it might be like you're looking into a mirror. August 15th 2010. 465 movies. I will buy, I will have more as times goes on, but my opinion of them will stay the same.

Inglorious Basterds

Once I knew the premise of this story I couldn’t wait until it came out. To my recollection it came out the year after Valkyrie and so I wasn’t sure which I wanted to see initially, I was hoping this … Continue reading

Movie Review: Brothers

I tend to usually stay away from movies involving the impact of war in the home as I find them to be one of the more depressing movies that have come out of cinema in the past. Brothers was no … Continue reading

Platoon

Academy Award winner of Best Picture of 1986. Best Director, best editing, best sound. 4 More Oscar nominations. Another 18 wins, and 9 nominations. I can stop here and hope that this can speak for itself, but Platoon is much … Continue reading
