Welcome! I'm a film fan and love to share the hobby with others. At Gnomercy.org you will find film reviews, interesting movie related posts, and I try to post once a month an article relating mathematics and film to explore this art form in interesting ways. I hope you enjoy your stay.

    February 25, 2013 by
    Having grown up partially in suburban California around the time Steven Spielberg was making it big, it’s easy to say I was somewhat shaped by his world. Spielberg is easily one of the best directors when it comes to children...

  • Love Affair: Black Swan Love Affair: Black Swan
    May 7, 2012 by
    Easily my favorite movie of 2010, and perhaps of every film since then, is Black Swan. I can promise it has almost nothing to do with my crush on Natalie Portman (Thor, V for Vendetta) and a whole lot to...

  • The Amazing Spider-Man Blu-Ray Review The Amazing Spider-Man Blu-Ray Review
    November 13, 2012 by
    It’s hard to talk about The Amazing Spider-Man without talking about the Hollywood remake machine. Or the reboot machine. Or whatever you would like to call it. The point is, no one was really asking for another take on Spider...

  • Cabin in the Woods Blu-Ray Review Cabin in the Woods Blu-Ray Review
    October 1, 2012 by
    I live in a place that is more likely to play host to a film like The Cabin in the Woods than show it in a theater. That’s because we live in a remote wooded area filled with cabins and...

  • American Psycho with Huey and Al American Psycho with Huey and Al
    April 3, 2013 by
    It’s not very often Funny or Die is actually funny. But you throw enough crap in the wind and you eventually uncover…I don’t know where this metaphor is going. But watching Huey Lewis do his Christian Bale impression from American Psycho is pretty funny, mostly because it [...]...

  • Everything’s Coming up Jaws Everything’s Coming up Jaws
    April 3, 2013 by
    It wasn’t very long ago that I would tell people about how Steven Spielberg’s Jaws was my favorite movie and people thought I was joking. There was a long while that the mastery of Jaws was overshadowed and diluted by its crappy sequel brethren. But the last [...]...

    I realize I see so many more things than I tend to share. Part of the purpose of starting this little web space was to highlight some interesting film related material that wasn’t like the movie news sites where you could get your rumor fix for the [...]...

    March 23, 2013 by
    Watching Han Solo say, “Clever girl” to an AT-AT is the highlight for me. But the whole thing is just good fun for us movie geeks. Take a look! decreasing...

    Having grown up partially in suburban California around the time Steven Spielberg was making it big, it’s easy to say I was somewhat shaped by his world. Spielberg is easily one of the best directors when it comes to children and accepting their viewpoints as completely valid, [...]...

  • SNL Actually Funny with Djesus Uncrossed SNL Actually Funny with Djesus Uncrossed
    February 17, 2013 by
    I often find SNL skits to sort of miss the mark, either starting with a great idea and not doing enough with it, or taking a bad idea and getting slightly more from it than should be possible. But their Tarantino revisionist history parody Djesus Uncrossed is [...]...
