Consider this to be a thinly-disguised autobiography by means of reflections about movies, books, and writing. Its not enough for someone to simply say, I liked it, or I really hated it- those are not opinions in and of themselves, they are prefaces to opinions. To qualify as actual opinions, they must be followed by reasons why, and in order for you to understand the reasons why, you have to understand something about the person giving the opinion. -- Gary A.
