Pretty much everything: Xzyliac

Truth be told, I'm not entirely sure what I'm doin' here. There's a crapload of movies I ain't never seen but eff it 'cause I like watchin' movies and stuff. I went through a super big movie phase and I've taken 3 film analysis classes so I guess that counts for somethin'.

I'm willing to watch pretty much anything unless Ryan Reynolds is in it or at the end two women overcome differences and sing a musical number together. Traditionally movies I like are indie flicks, sci-fi, dry comedies or action movies. I really like films with a sort of natural feeling stylization to them like the old exploitation flicks or Pixar films. Movies where the style seems to be a natural byproduct of the vision for the film and where the film itself still stands on it's own two feet if you take that style away. Guys and gals whom I admire because of this are Tarantino, the Coen brothers, Miranda July (shut up), Stanley Kubrick, Alfred Hitchcock and Christopher Nolan although there's more whose names I can't remember right now.

My other interest are the usual nerd fare. Music, video games, comics and fetishism (that's usual nerd fare, right?). Music was my first love and still very near and dear to me. Dtoiders might remember I headed up a music review blog before life clenched me in it's sexy jaws and demanded my life blood. Video games and comics are what have really influenced me a lot. The games I like pretty much reflect the films I like. Stylized and full of heart but with gameplay that, once stripped of that style, stand on it's own two feet. I'm also a big DC fanboy though I'm certainly not anti-Marvel.

My personal self isn't terribly interesting. Just a thing with dreads and an aspiring gender issues major who likes to talk shit about alternative sexualities in the context of pretty much any cultural and sociological perspective. I'm a pretty stern feminist and you might even see me go on rants on occasion but I promise I'm approachable and lighthearted on the matter.

Also, whips.
