I prefer movies that are set in the real world with stories that do not depend on magic and that rely more
on acting than on special effects. I tend to like independent films and dislike blockbusters. I also feel
that that there is a lack of movies that portray strong, complex, or multi-dimensional female characters
and so I prefer movies that do. I am not offended by depictions of sex or violence. These are some of my
Television: A medium. So called because it is neither rare nor well done.
