Reviewer Profile: oblie

Real name: Tobias Cummings

oblie's Bio

Ok let's get a few little things straight: Jack Nicholson circa 1970 was as cool as any one person is ever going to be; Stanley Kubrick shall always be the greatest director of motion pictures; Mad Max (1979) remains unparalleled; Dumb and Dumber (1994) is very, very funny; Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer (1986) and Requiem for a Dream (2000) should be placed in a new category in video stores, the 'Cast Yourself into a Depressive Pall' section; Steven Spielberg is very good at schmaltz; if I were to watch The Exorcist (1973) and The Thing (1982) late at night, in a lonely house, on a windy, moonless night I could expect not to sleep very much at all; Nicholas Roeg, Terrence Malick, David Cronenberg, Akira Kurosawa, Martin Scorsese, Jean-Luc Godard and a host of others too innumerable to mention here are (or were) all very accomplished individuals.
