If a 24-hour movie binge doesn't sound disturbing to you, then being on a FilmBender is something we have in common. You likely have a Netflix account with over 1,000 rated films and a never-ending queue. Seems harmless, but beware... being sh*tfaced on movies is hazardous to personal relationships and brings exposure to highly dangerous situations (i.e. having a high Netflix rating for both Bound and Brokeback Mountain could result in a Short Bus recommendation... ack!). Proceed with caution, or you'll end up looking like me – toasted.
Mission here, should I choose to accept it, is to post once per
day (Mon-Fri) week about a single movie (and whatever else comes to mind) creating an overdose / personal-favorites playlist of theatrical and DVD feature films from the mind of a whacked-out movie freak. Generally not a synopsis... just a notable takeaway because that's all I can generally remember. That's it. Any more posting, and I'd be jonsen for a movie. Or at least that's what I tell myself. Hope you read it, and either smile or watch a good movie because of it.
A focus may bend towards movie twists or just plain twisted movies. The point is, though, to only cover great movies. Accordingly, FilmBender has it's own rating system, of which, is a classic 5-star but using Blood Alcohol Level tiers:
.08 – Movie O'Doul's
.10 – Can’t feel a thing
.20 – A little Buzzed
.30 – Totally Hammered
.40 – Killer Film
If ya can't tell, the range is from low movie quality levels (.08) to having so much movie quality that it kills you (.40). Pretty stupid, I know.
