What is the main focus of your site (reviews, editorials, news, lists, etc.)?
My main focus is movie reviews, with an occasional movie-related article or list thrown in. I also review Washington DC’s movie theaters.

What are your blogging goals, personally and/or professionally? In other words, what, if anything, are you trying to get out your blog?
I’m a movie fan from waaay back. And I’m pretty opinionated. Friends have always come to me asking what I thought of some movie. Though, that may say more about the frequency that I get out to screenings, as opposed to my actual taste level.

Corny as it sounds, I do this, because I have to. I love movies. Writing the blog is one of my favorite hobbies.

Do you prefer an interactive ‘community’ for your blog or are you the teacher and your readers are the students?
If I have/get a community, I’m all about an honest dialogue. I’d rather have interesting conversations with people who don’t agree with me, instead of just head-nodders. I don’t know enough to teach anybody. Movies are a matter of taste and we’re all different. There is no right or wrong answer when comes to what you like.

How long have you been movie blogging for, and how frequent do you post updates to your site?
I will have been doing this for two years, this March. I try to update at least once a week, but life does intervene.

Name up to three of your favorite movies (and no more).
Amelie – The first time I saw this, the entire packed theater had this look of bliss on their faces. Beautiful film from aesthetics to the soul of the script.
The Color Purple – This one’s a nostalgic favorite from childhood. I cried three times watching it, in sadness and joy. This movie is my test. If you don’t cry, you have no soul. This film is the exception to the rule. šŸ˜‰
Galaxy Quest – It’s lesser-seen than I believe, it ought to be, amazingly rated PG (!), that’s still funny for the whole family, and a dead-on tribute to Star Trek. PLUS, Sam Rockwell, Missi Pyle, and Tony Shalhoub rule, in this.

Any additional comments.
