Author: Frank Mengarelli

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. Ah…Jack Lemmon and James Garner in My Fellow Americans – haven’t seen that film in a long while but I remember really enjoying it.

    Great choice for number – Henry Fonda is one of my favourite actors. I like the inclusion of the comic personas – Peter Sellers and Jack Nicholson (even though I really don’t like Mars Attacks).

    Some fantastic actors – many very iconic stars – have played the President it seems!

    1. Totally! The more I’ve watched “Mars Attacks!” as I have gotten older, the more I really appreciate it, and really understand what Burton is going for. But I mean, Henry Fonda as the President in “Fail/Safe”, toughest decision ever?
