I used to be quite the movie buff (cue the Seinfeld reference, please). I met my future wife in a film class. I drifted away from watching films for almost a decade. There were other things out there to amuse me: a wife, music, books, and our children. Most of the movies we go to watch are with the kids. There's no movie theater in Smithville so the wife and I rarely go to the movies (they also just cost too damn much). I'm also not too keen on renting movies. But lately I've found myself buying lots of used DVD's. I stay up late watching them after the kids have gone to bed. So the cinema bug is still in me. I've found myself visiting IMDB often lately. I've also been digging the blogs Film Brain, Cinecultist/Crazy For Movies, and The House Next Door (Matt Zoller Seitz's blog). I think I'll add a film heading to the sidebar soon.
