If last week’s traffic taught me anything, it’s that you like it when your friendly neighborhood Kaiderman talks film. Which is great because if there’s one thing I can do, it’s talk about film at great, great, often disturbingly great length. So here goes:

Being that it’s nearing the end of the year, we are being inundated with “Best Of” lists. So, I really didn’t want to do one. However, the more of them I read, the more and more I disagree and wanted to voice my own opinion. That of the fan and not of the critic. Technically, I should be doing the “Best Of The Decade” list (the decade ends this year, not next year… do the math). Unfortunately, due to the foolish ways of my youth, most of the decade is somewhat of a blur to me. So, I settle for this. Not really a best and worst list. More like a list of my favorites and biggest disappointments. We’ll start with: Continue reading

5 FILMS YOU DIDN’T KNOW YOU NEED TO SEE

For those of you who come here for my usual wit and charm (sadly, I feel there are very few of you), I have to apologize as this week I am forced to put humor on hold to perform a public service (though I’m sure some will inevitably seep through). :)

You see, if there’s one thing I take pride in being, it’s a movie aficionado… or as my wife and friends call me: Film Geek. I follow the film industry very closely, as I hope to parlay this whole blogging thing into a career as a screenwriter someday. Hopefully, before the nails hit the coffin. I typically know about films before they even get the greenlight and I see everything I can, be it in theaters or on DVD. This week alone, thanks to the Hollywood Video Diamond Pass upgrade I was given, I’m on pace to see 21 movies. That’s if I make it to Avatar on Sunday… God, and my dear wife, willing. However, there are weeks when I’ve seen everything that’s out there to see and I am forced to wander up and down the “Favorites” aisle of my local video retailer, the place movies go to die, in the hopes of finding a gem… a diamond in the rough, if you will. Sadly, these are far and few between. However, every now and then, I stumble across something that slipped past my radar. Chances are, if I haven’t heard of it, the average movie going public hasn’t either. Thus, I perform this, my public service, and present you with this week’s list: 5 FILMS YOU DIDN’T KNOW YOU NEED TO SEE. Continue reading

PONDERABLES

Posted in Humor with tags on December 12, 2009 by Kaiderman
I’ve had some senseless questions on my mind this week! Though I prefer to think of them as Ponderables. I thought I’d pose them to you all and maybe we can figure them out. Here they are, in no particular order:  Continue reading

PEOPLE WE CAN DO WITHOUT

Posted in Humor with tags , , on December 5, 2009 by Kaiderman

This week’s list is an excerpt from a book I’ve been working on. The premise is simple…

The world is overpopulated. And people show no sign of wanting to let up on the fornicating. The fact of the matter is, we’re running out of room. Sooner or later, we’ll be forced to make space. Naturally, the dictators, murderers, rapists, and Kenny G. fans will be the first to go. But what then? Here are my suggestions of more PEOPLE WE CAN DO WITHOUT. Continue reading
