Ten Movie Facts about Frank!

My little buddy Dan tagged me in this, about fucking time someone did! Eat shit Aiden and Castor!

10. The first movie I ever saw in theaters was “Batman” – 1989. Thank you Mommy.

9. In my pompous opinion Robert DeNiro’s best performance is as Rupert Pupkin (which is often mispronounced and misspelled) in Scorsese’s “The King of Comedy”.

8. I met is Fred Ward. I was 16 and in downtown Chicago with my friends and we were at Marshall Fields and I spotted him by the jewelry counter. I walked up to him and said, “Mr. Ward I just wanted to let you know I’m a big fan of your work.” He looked at me and said, “How does someone your age know who the hell I am.”

Two words: “Remo Williams.”

He laughed, shook my hand and said, “Thanks kid, I really appreciate it.”

7. I fucking LOATH Ellen Page.

6. “The Blair Witch Project” gave me nightmares. Still does if I watch it.

5. My favorite movie ever is “All That Jazz”.

4. I think “Gladiator” is one of the most overrated movies ever, followed by “Crash” and “The Hurt Locker”. “Gladiator” is a solid 7.

3. I have a phobia of water because of “Jaws”. Seriously.

2. The scene in “Bad Lieutenant” where Harvey Keitel pulls over the two girls made me gag and almost throw up on myself.

1. I would have sex with Warren Beatty.

Everybody relax, Frank's here. After going to film school at Columbia College Chicago, Frank decided to underachieve with his vast knowledge of film into a career in civil service. Frank had a brief stint as a film blogger, and then he met the heterosexual love of his life, Nick Clement. The two instantly bonded over their love from everything to Terence Malick to THE EXPENDABLES films. Some of Frank's favorite filmmakers are Terence Malick, Martin Scorsese, Quentin Tarantino, Sylvester Stallone, Oliver Stone and Spike Lee. Some of his favorite films are THE TREE OF LIFE, STAR WARS (all of them), BAD LIEUTENANT, THE THING and ALL THAT JAZZ. Frank spends his free time with his dog Roger, collecting any Star Wars collectible he can find and trying to finish his pretentious, first person narrative novel(la), LARGE MEN IN SMALL CARS..

  1. You loath Ellen Page? What has she done to you? Did she poop in your beer? 😉 Cool thing that you met Fred Ward! As for phobia of water, you can only get rid of it by jumping in it!
