My passion for movies lies solely in my sense of humanity and a thirst to be connected to my fellow man with a deeper level of understanding. Such inspiration will not qualify me to offer critique from a technical standpoint, but then "technicalities" will never unravel all the mysteries entwined within the human spirit. The opportunity to discover different aspects of human nature, to look at some element of life from a new perspective, to learn from the experience of others, or simply to find laughter beneath the absurdities of human nature; these are the sensibilities that I choose to draw from movies. These are the movies that move me. I find such enlightenment far more valuable than any technical acumen. So, if you're looking for movie reviews measured in stars and steeped in prolific pontificating that ultimately end in the primitive hand gesture of "thumbs up" or "thumbs down," type the words, "film critics" in your search engine. You'll find nothing so "technical" as a stars and hand gestures here.
Other than the first movie listed, the other nine of the "Top Ten List" are not listed chronologically with respect to preference. I have chosen the movie Glory as my favorite movie. Links to each movie will provide other links of interest, information, photos, and personal opinion. Enjoy!
