Hopelessly devoted to movies from way back when I first saw "Pete's Dragon." In 1977, it sealed the deal when I saw "Star Wars." I write about the movies I see, whether I like them or not. Sometimes I like them more than words can express! Thanks for checking out my movie reviews!

    1. Thank you so much. I built this one based on my own memory and IMDB ratings of films I had given a “10.” It’s not comprehensive at all. Maybe you’ll find a couple you haven’t seen?
