For anyone who doesn’t know me, my name is Dan Fogarty (thus “Fogs”), and I watch way too many movies.
I’m constantly talking about movies to people who are shaking their heads saying things like “No, I havent seen that one”, or “Whats that one about”, or “Oh yeah, was that any good?” Being single with no kids, I realize that I have a lot more time on my hands than most people. But I also have a really deep love for the magic of the medium. So I try to watch ’em all, if I can.
My first version of this page ended with:
“I also like to hear myself talk, and I finally figured out that a Facebook page really isn’t the proper place to post movie reviews. So here we go, a spot for me to write about movies. Lets see if it winds up any good.”
I still like to “hear myself talk”, but I guess it IS turning out pretty good, as I’ve been getting a lot of positive feedback (including being “Freshly Pressed” by WordPress a couple of times, being selected as an “Editor’s Pick of the Day” on Bloggers.com, and being nominated for 8 Lammys by the Large Association of Movie Blogs), and I’ve been fortunate to have a great batch of commenters settle in here. I really feel like we’ve got a fun, well versed bunch of movie fans that hang out now and are willing to share their views and opinions on the topics I post. I hope you’ll join in, too.
I co-host a podcast with Chris Tanski of Underscoopfire.com (another enormous movie fan), titled “The Title Pending Movie Podcast”. It’s clever AND a cop-out both at the same time!
So I hope you’ll like what you find here, I encourage you to explore the “Archives” by using the “Categories” on the right hand side of the homepage. If you read something you like, please don’t hesitate to share your thoughts using the comments!!

Hell yeah, right? 😀 We’ll see if any of those Lammy lottery tickets actually come through this year. Last year I watched a lot of other people’s names get called, brother. 😉
I have nominated you for The Very Inspiring Blogger Award because I really enjoy visiting your blog: http://wherethewildthingsare14.wordpress.com/?p=5773
Do you have a list of your personal favorite all-time films? Being a total film junkie myself – modern and classic, foreign and domestic, anything as long as it’s good – I’m always curious to get the perspective of a fellow movie bum. I just came across your blog, and it’s really well done.
Thanks Scott. I don’t think I have written anything up officially for the blog. I know we’ve done our favorites list on the podcast a couple of times, though if you want to look around. Off the top of my head I’d say The Godfather, Jaws, Pulp Fiction, No Country for Old Men, Blade Runner, The Shining, Raiders, Empire Strikes Back. Not necessarily in that order. LOL
