Welcome to Filmaholics, you don’t need a twelve step program for films, we are your answer.
Banded together from the farthest reaches of the galaxy come the Filaholics crew. Wait a minute that was the ‘Super Friends’. Basically, Filmaholics is made up of three friends who enjoy talking about films and want to share that love with you. Here at Filmaholics we will have discussions involving new films, cult films, classic films, and any others that may come to mind. If we can turn one person on to a film that may never have seen on their on, our job is a success. So come by often, and leave your comments so we can talk with you. Our staff offers a wide array of blogs each week, and be sure to tune in weekly to our podcast on iTunes.

Of the three of us, I have the widest array of film knowledge and I think the others would agree. Lucas watches more of the new films than I do, but I love the classics as well as the newer ones.
I grew up a child of the 70’s and got my love of films from my father who was an insomniac and used to stay up late each night watching film after film. The video store actually knew each of us by name. I also remember him taking me to the movies at a young age all the time. I still remember seeing 3 days of the Condor in 1975 (I was 7) in the theatre. If you are looking for some film suggestions from the 60’s and 70’s, I got you covered. I love action, mysteries, and thrillers. I am not a huge horror fan, but if it is good I will watch it.
Some of my Favs- ‘Die Hard’, ‘Lethal Weapon’, ‘The Maltese Falcon’, ‘Goldfinger’, ‘Casino Royale’, ‘Field of Dreams’, ‘Rear Window’, ‘Thomas Crown Affair(both)’, ‘Charade’, ‘Chinatown’, ‘Marlowe’, ‘Dirty Harry’, ‘Transformers’, ‘Ronin’, ‘Shawshank Redemption’, ‘The Good the Bad’, the Ugly’, ‘The Hangover’, ‘Stepbrothers’, and many more. I have a wide variety of film loves as you can see.
I am an avid blogger and write and manage 5 current blogs, 2 of which are for major brands and the others are for my passions. I love talking about films and film-watching is my biggest passion. However, you may never see a bad review from me as I “love” all films for their specific reasons…..well, unless it just sucks…then I might slam it… J
My film knowledge starts around 1985. At a mere 5 years of age, I was plopped in front of a TV and my love affair with film began. I was immediately drawn to 80’s horror films like ‘Nightmare on Elm St.’ and ‘Friday the 13th’ and followed them from very early on. I have a soft spot as well for the 80’s films in general. ‘Goonies’ and ‘Summer Rental’ are two of my favs.
I definitely watch a lot of films. I have Netflix and Zune accounts and there is almost always a film playing whether it was an A-lister or a B-C flick. I usually see it if it’s recent. I have a movie catalog approaching 500 films and that’s not counting my Instant Queue on Netflix
Coming soon! A man who is a mystery wrapped in an Enigma!
Of the crew, I have the least array of film knowledge and I think the others would agree. These guys watch more films in a week than I do all year.
I grew up a child of the 70’s and 80’s and got my love of films from lazy Saturday afternoons. I recall video stores that didn’t sit at your local drug store or had the name Block in it. I even had the privilege of catching some of my first movies in a car with a speaker hanging on the window. My wife says that my ultimate movie would be an alien playing football blowing things up in a car chase. My favorite movies are from the 80’s and I am a fan of some remakes but not all.
Some of my Favorites – ‘Karate Kid (original)’ , ‘Die Hard’, ‘Breakfast Club’, ‘Glory’, ‘Red Dawn’, any ‘Star Wars’, ‘A Christmas Story’, ‘Sixteen Candles’, ‘Family Vacation’, ‘Stand By Me’, ‘Hoosiers’, ‘Ghostbusters’, ‘Ferris Bueller’s Day Off’, ‘Ground Hog Day’, ‘Back to the Future’, ‘Raising Arizona’, ‘Willow’, ‘Real Genius’, and many more.
