What is the main focus of your site? My main focus is as clichéd as it is truthful, my main focus is to deliver reviews that are straight forward and easy to follow that help viewers to find new movies independent and main stream that are great.
What are your blogging goals, personally and/or professionally? In other words, what, if anything, are you trying to get out your blog? Personally, I use the site as expression of my love of the medium. I find passion in dissecting and analyzing the works of film makers. I enjoy giving my opinions on the different aspects of a film and trying to dig deep into the separate layers of the creation of many different people. I think it is fun to try to explore what writers and directors are trying to say and finding a meaning in a movie that is both profound and in the realm of what they could have been thinking is really enriching and rewarding to me. Professionally, of course as already said I find extreme comfort in helping someone find a movie they love. There is no better feeling than praising a movie you have a passion for and having someone have that same feeling for the movie that you have because of your recommendation.
Do you prefer an interactive community for your blog or are you the teacher and your readers the students? Right now, I’m leaning towards me the teacher and my viewers the students only because I can see viewers viewing my reviews as essays towards the movie. Also, I don’t have any interest in adding anything like a forum or an article entirely based on the opinions of the commenter at this time. But if you mean having a discussion about a film in the comments of my reviews, I would be fine with that.
How long has this site been active for, and how frequently do you post updates to your site? (Note: sites must be active for at least three months for entry to the LAMB.) I go back and fourth between doing one and two reviews a week. I have been active technically since mid-November but I only started going over grammar and doing my reviews in my traditional format since late December starting with my review of Jack Reacher.
Name up to three of your favorite movies (and no more). 1. Vertigo
It’s the first film that ever genuinely moved in just the sheer passion of the film. Vertigo is a raw, beautiful and powerful look on one man’s drift into insanity and the film making by Alfred Hitchcock is so intense and the score is so beautiful. Truly, it’s the most moving film I’ve ever seen.

2. The Big Lebowski
The style, the characters, the storyline and the White Russians, The Big Lebowski is a profound look on liberality driven by an amazing mixture of different genres, beautiful cinematography, fascinating symbolism, amazing acting, incredible characters, an enriching and intriguing storyline and humor ranging from bitter to trippy to hysterical.

3. Magnolia
If Vertigo is the powerful film I’ve seen and The Big Lebowski is the fascinating film I’ve seen, then Magnolia is the most enriching film I’ve seen. If you aren’t awed by the sheer ambition then you will be awed by the interesting characters, the moving meanings and the film successfully taking on of the complexity of the human condition.

Name a movie you hate!! I shouldn’t go with something I saw this year but I have to go with Movie 43. I mean, I couldn’t even do a review on this! I look at the terrible humor and just how low this film sunk below the barrel throughout and I honestly can’t think of a lower point in American film making. This film pulls through on delivering every single argument towards the fact that art is drifting from something of meaning and becoming something to continuously destroy the brain. I’m still not sure whether this is an actual film or just a film pulled from a dystopian world where people would rather laugh at fart humor than take part in anything of actual intelligence. It is the low point not just of film but of art on a whole and I’m terrified for the sake of humanity if this is the future of film making.
How did hear about the LAMB? If it was a LAMB, do you recall which one? I heard about it when I was looking though a critics site. I believe the name of the site was Life Between Films.
Any additional comments, or give yourself an interview question that’s not listed above. (optional) Again, the best place to start is with my Jack Reacher review and then go on to my review of The Impossible because that is where my grammar errors drop and where my review format begins.

Also, I know that I have not had a website for a long time and I know my only Tumblr follower is my mom and that is a joke and it should be laughed at. But in all seriousness, letting me in on this could help my site to find attention and to get my site out there. I consider my reviews fairly good and by letting my site in you would be helping out an aspiring to get on the right track to getting his site out there.
