Limelight

I love movies. I don’t mean that I love movies the way every college student ever said they loved movies; I mean I truly love movies. For a long time, I wrote screenplays as a hobby (my spare time to do that seems to continuously disappear these days). I have a personal collection encompassing hundreds and hundreds of movies and TV shows. For me, movies are what I do to relax, unwind, and creatively excite myself.

It was ridiculous, and it’s not a wonder it didn’t help me at all. I tried using IMDB’s list function for a while, but the service didn’t blow me away and I found IMDB was more a pain than anything else. ToDoMovies, though, really got me excited.

I love movies. In fact, I used to write about movies all the time on my personal website before that writing started landing me freelance work. As a single male and an aspiring screenwriter, I love movies so much that I’m practically dating my film collection. (Note to self: That could explain why I’m single. I should look into that.)

My problem is that my film watching has always been inherently isolating. I tend to watch movies alone because most people I know don’t share my taste: I enjoy hidden gems like Brian de Palma’s Blow Out more every single viewing, but I could skip movies like Pain & Gain altogether (and do). It’s hard for me to find people with similar taste, but Limelight has a solution: it’s making my movie watching social. (more…)
