Top 5 Favorite Alfred Hitchcock Movies

Hey All! So last semester I had the privilege of taking a class at USC entirely focused upon the directorial style of one Alfred Hitchcock. Heard of him? Me neither.

Top 36 Movie Scenes of 2018

Hey all!  Every year, I always enjoy discussing my favorite movies of the year and I always enjoy following up with my favorite parts of movies.  Even though I limit my favorite movies of the year list to just ten, I went through the entire list of the movies I saw in 2018 and identified the particular scenes I LOVED even if I thought the movies were just okay or even underwhelming.

Until then, here are my predictions for the awards tomorrow!
