The Striker 9000

      So my friend Kyle and I like to make movies in our free time. Movies are a passion of mine. It seems that I can't watch the a single film without thinking thoughts like, "Wow this director does some interesting transitions,"  or, "This is so Hollywood I wanna gag." I always get uncomfortable when people ask me what I thought of the latest movie I saw in the theaters. The probability is that I hated it (because it sucked) and they loved it (because a lot of people love movies that suck), and then I have to decide what's more important, sharing my obnoxious abhorrence of the movie or letting it slide for the sake of civility. Usually the former prevails.

I take great pleasure, however, in being a movie snob.

Sometimes when I have a little free time, I make a list of movies I know are too indie or underground for Family Video to have (e.g. Stranger Than Paradise or Love and Death), then I ask the worker to look my whole list up one by one. When she says something like, "No, we don't have that one either," I say something along the lines of, "It figures." in a sort of better-than-thou way and take off.

For all those who think I'm a wacko, I understand. The above story is not actually true, I've only thought about doing it. 

Let's get back to the point!

      So my friend Kyle and I like to make movies in our free time. The one below is actually not a movie, but a commercial we came up with. I hope you like it!

I plan to post more of out movies soon, so keep an eye out!
