This is my first post, so I thought I’d introduce myself. My name is William and I like movies.
I’ve been a fan of the movies since I was very young. The first movie I saw in the theaters was “Return of the Jedi” when I was only 3 years old. That started my fascination with the Star Wars franchise and the magic of the motion picture.
Since then, I have been a regular movie-goer for the great, the near great, the not-so great, and the absolute crap. I’m quite voracious in my viewing and will watch just about anything at least once (a great exception comes from the run of horrible parody movies that have been coming out in the wake of the “Scary Movie” franchise. I think the final nail in that coffin will be when they come out with one actually called “Parody Movie”. It’ll be shit, and we can all move on).
The purpose of this blog will be for me, as a movie-goer and hardcore cinephile, to give (hopefully) honest critiques of movies. I will review every movie I see without abject malice (if there is malice, it will have a purpose). Not only will you find reviews of the newest theater releases, you will also find the smaller titles, the classics, the cult classics, and the independent stuff you’ve never heard of before.
Now, I feel the name deserves a brief explanation. For those who don’t know what a Nerdfighter is, here is the simplest “official” definition:
People who instead of being made up of cells and organs and stuff are actually made out of awesome.
The term was coined by brothers Hank and John Green during their year-long vlog project Brotherhood 2.0. The viewers of this project make up the Nerdfighter populace. I consider myself one of their number and am fascinated with movies, thus movie nerdfighter.
So, now you know a little about why I am doing this. Also, you may like to know that I am a writer and filmmaker living in Wilmington, North Carolina.
That’s it for the introduction. Reviews to follow quite soon.
William, the Movie Nerdfighter
