100 Film Facts About Me Part 1


I have saw on a few blogs compiled lists of 100 facts about them. Well, here is part 1 of 100 facts film related about me. I would like to thank Cinematic Corner and Cinematic Paradox for their lists as it is what inspired this post. (Check out their great blogs also). Let's get started. 


1)    Although not my favourite film of all-time, if I were to choose a film to watch for the rest of my life it would be Singin in the Rain.



2)    I like Titanic (1997).

3)    My room is covered in movie posters.

4)    I hope to become a filmmaker/film director someday.

5)    Since I was about 6 years old, I knew how to work a VHS player, and since I have enjoyed films.

6)    I started to become truly obsessed with the world of film at 14-15.

34) Robert De Niro may very well be my favourite actor of all time.
