My movie obsessed origin story begins with Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. I was 4 years old and can still remember so many details of the experience, as though I were seeing it for the first time yesterday. I’m also quite certain everyone else at the screening remembers my reaction when it appears Indy perishes as the tank goes over the cliff… I grew up watching all the major Oscar nominees with my mom each year. She also instilled in me a love for kaiju and creature features. Now I’m hoping to instill the same sort of passion for the pictures in my son. A lover of all film genres, I’m currently running a multiyear streak of seeing every single Oscar nominee before the ceremony airs.
