My name's Jaelynn (pronounced Jay-Lynn). I'm a she. I'm 17 and a senior in high school. I'm from Lancaster, PA... aka the most boring place on earth. I'm in love with music. All kinds. Anything from The Beatles to Boys Night Out to Tori Amos to Fall Out Boy. I listen to a lot of bands that aren't popular... yet. I really like horror movies. The more gore the better (with exceptions, of course). Certain other movies appeal to me, too, though. I really like Quentin Tarantino. Pulp Fiction is probably one of my favorite movies, ever. I like gangster flicks. Scarface is a classic, Al Pacino's probably one of my favorite actors. After poking around, I noticed that a lot of you are into low budget films, which is great. I love indie flicks, but have a hard time finding ones that don't suck. I'm always looking for new horror movies to watch and discuss... Well, movies period, really. Movies seem to suck lately. Buuut, hopefully I'll get some suggestions here.
If anyone replies, could you tell me a little about yourself in your response?

My name's Lazario (pronounced exactly how it looks) I'm male, 24 years old (my 25th birthday will be in 15 days)
I dropped out of high school because it sucked, so I work a normal minimum wage job
I'm from the NorthEastern states of the U.S. And it's never boring here
Music is one of my favorite things on Earth. And all my personal tastes, food, movies, music, TV, you name it, are marked by a great deal of variety. It's quicker to name all the things I don't like.
Horror is a passion of mine. I feel balance is the most important thing. A movie that can deliver a little bit of everything is what I look for. A little good acting, gore is fine but it has to look great, I'm a huge fan of surrealistic stuff and artsy qualities, and anything provocative, unpredictable, unexpected, quirky, and fascinating. Argento is my favorite director. And not because of his "gore." He's much better at making surreal films, his camerawork is amazing, and his scores are great. Music in my horror movies is very important to me- I'm very sensitive to that, and the production values of a horror film - lighting, costuming, set design, all of that makes a huge difference!
As for other movies- I like a mixture of feel-good movies, like romantic comedies (which I always watch, no matter how bad they may be). Pretty Woman, Clueless, etc. And independent-like black comedy satire type movies. Like Ghost World, Welcome to the Dollhouse, etc. I'm a huge fan of Disney movies. I love imagination in filmmaking. And Disney movies were just damn beautiful examples of use of color and music, two of my favorite cinematic elements.
I also watch quite a bit of TV. My favorite shows change all the time, but I really like Daria, Absolutely Fabulous, The Nanny, The Jeffersons, Scrubs, So NoTorious, Fawlty Towers, and anything that appeals to me at the time.
As for modern horror movies- I think almost all of them suck. Hostel was the last decent new horror movie I saw. Not great, but okay. I'm mostly brushing up on my old school horror these days, buying more DVD's and seeing movies that way. But I would honestly advise you if you're looking for something new - check out that Masters of Horror, season 1 boxset. Goddamn there's some good stuff in there!
I'm a mystery wrapped in a riddle. Or maybe a riddle wrapped in a mystery? I forget...............Anyways I'm somethin' wrapped in somethin' else.

"Equal rights for everybody, special treatment for no one!" "Prayer is for lazy people." "I just flipped-off President George. Now I'm going to Disneyland!"

Well, I'm much more a fan of the older Disney movies. The new ones have no sense of that classic Disney magic. Just attaching a Walt Disney Pictures logo to the stuff they're doing now doesn't make their new stuff feel any less like attempts to top Shrek and Madagascar. It's sad, really.
