Does Filmcrave Feed Your Movie Addiction?

View Daniel Corleone's Profile

By Daniel Corleone - 11/03/11 at 09:40 PM CT

My very first film viewed in a theater was Stand By Me. I can vividly remember the four friends traveling along the railroad encountering a myriad of adventures. It had elements of drama and comedy and I enjoyed the experience especially watching it with my class back in grade school, since our school sponsored it.

Another major influence was viewing Star Wars in Betamax format. Who couldnít be moved by the massive entrance, entrancing score and unique characters using blasters and light sabers? The passion for films stretched deeper as action figures from one of my early favorite films came out. From the small toys to light sabers, I collected only the main characters - unlike those who know every minute detail, scene, background character or planet witnessed in the Lucas galaxy.

After viewing The Godfather, a film created way before I was born, it cemented in my mind what every movie should be. It had likable characters, luxurious costumes, alluring cinematography, a memorable musical score, a well-written screenplay and universal themes such as family, loyalty and sacrifice to name a few. In my tender age I felt moved because of the pictures impact on me.

Fast forward to 2011, the year I discovered Filmcrave.com, a comprehensive website with movie enthusiasts all over the world. I thoroughly relished the criticisms, be it constructive or not, on the flicks I havenít viewed, along with learning to appreciate how others create their reviews. My addiction to movies not only range from purchasing DVDís with sufficient special features, along with collectibles, but also the countless times visiting this remarkable site.

Having fellow members who enjoy various films is a treat. Unfortunately, there are those who want to go ahead in terms of points by rating films they've never watched, creating lists with no ratings and many more questionable methods to prove how adept they are with this timeless medium. To each his own, just like what movies teach us, be ourselves and respect individualism, much like the characters in Dead Poet's Society or Schindler's List.

Life can be hard and yet we can still prevail, which was proved in Lorenzoís Oil or The Fighter. Hopefully, this beloved site in which we come back to again and again will grow as time passes by, much like the reputation of a technical masterpiece like Citizen Kane or the suspenseful, timeless Psycho. Maybe someday a forum where you can post your addictions to movies, be it DVD collections, laserdiscs, Betamax tapes, rare DVDís, autographed pictures and others will emerge. Whatever era you were born, it would be impossible not to have seen or loved some film. Movie addiction has never been more alive with Filmcrave.com
