What’s a Good Movie?

What makes a good movie? It’s very different for different people.

I’ve been a fan of movies since as long as I can remember.

The movie theatre has been a frequent focal point of my memories. Whether it was getting physically sick watching The Empire Strikes Back (stomach flu, not the movie); taking in my first movie, Star Trek 2: Wrath of Kahn, without a parent; having a bonding moment with my father at the Drive-In (Howard the Duck and Back to the Future) or being scarred for life at my first horror, Piranha. (Thanks mom and dad and yes, I was awake).

Are these “good movies”? Well, you did read Howard the Duck, didn’t you? The point here is that it might be crap but it still provided a moment of good times.

My definition of a good movie is one that makes you feel something (and no wiseass, I don’t count revulsion or nausea). This blog, and its social platforms, are not only looking at movies being released but also movies from our past and discussion around what movies we like and why we like them.

I look forward to talking more about what you like and why you like it. Let’s go hunting (soooo cheesy but fun to say)
