Reviews - Read This Before Reading My Reviews

This is just a little disclaimer about my reviews. I love movies, music and books. However, I am not a professional critic. Far from it. My reviews will simply be my opinions, good or bad, in my own words. Also, please note that I will probably have spoilers throughout my reviews, but I will alert you to the spoilers. I plan on rating each review, using a grading scale (A, A+, B, C-, etc.). To give you something to compare these ratings to, I have included a description below of the types of movies, music, and books that I enjoy. I have also included television shows and video games that I like, because I might one day find myself itching to give a t.v. show or game a review.


I like most movies. I am not a fan, however, of certain ridiculous comedies that focus on crude and gross humor. Some of my favorite movies include
Snatch, Donnie Darko, Garden State, About a Boy, Memento, Return to Oz, and The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. I also love the Harry Potter movies. Netflix keeps movies coming, so movie reviews should show up on my blog often.


I like a lot of different music. I don't really enjoy Country or Gospel or Classical, but I like pretty much everything else. I guess my favorite genre would be soft rock, or adult alternative. My favorite artists/bands are
Fiona Apple, Jason Mraz, Portishead, Radiohead, Tool, Bjork, Massive Attack, Coldplay, Keane, Far, Our Lady Peace and Rage Against the Machine. I absolutely cannot stand Creed, Hinder, or Nickelback.


I read a lot when I was a kid, but when I was 11, we moved, and it wasn't really "cool" to read at my new school. So I didn't really start reading again until I was in college. There are so many books that I feel like I should have already read, and many of these are on my bookshelf, waiting to be opened. Some of my favorite books (so far) are the
Harry Potter series, the Wicked series, The Girl Who Owned a City, and the Sookie Stackhouse series. I have recently started reading a lot, and I plan on reviewing mostly books in my blog.

Television Shows:

I watch a lot of telvision. Probably too much. I recently became addicted to
The Office, and I just can't seem to get enough. Other shows I can't miss are Ellen, Heroes, Lost, How I Met Your Mother, and FlashForward. I still love Gilmore Girls and Veronica Mars, and watch my DVDs often.

Video Games:

I become quite addicted to certain video games. As for computer games, I love
the Sims, games like Diner Dash, and games like Bejeweled and Chuzzle. I also own a Playstation 2 and a Wii, and enjoy games like SSX3, MarioKart, Mario Party, Wii Sports, Guitar Hero and Rock Band. I hope to get DJ Hero sometime soon.
