Film Buff?

My close friend, Hal Astell runs a blog on films.  From the obvious to the obscure.  I first met him at the DarkCon Conference in Tempe, Arizona last year, and have since become good friends with him and his lovely bride Dee.  After one of my book signings, we talked for hours about films at a depth I have rarely encountered.  I honestly have to admit he knows films and movies better than I do.  Here is his site if you are interested:

  1. I am a fan of old movies. Films from the 1930’s and 1940’s are what I truly prefer over the garbage that passes for a movie in the present time. I am a fan of film noir, having learned of the genre from my late father. He lived through most of the 20th century, so I took his opinion seriously. Enjoyable post.
