Gravymovie's Top Tens+

About Moi, somewhat

Fifty-something divorced guy with grown children; agnostic, traditional free-speech liberal and fierce individualist who loves film and literature as well as the musics Brazilian, Latin, jazz/swing, classical, pre-war blues and weird progressive rock and some guilty pleasure bubblegum. I lived in Nashville for a couple of years not too long ago and would like to get back there again, once finances stabilize. I have a collection of untold thousands of films in various formats. I’m well read and have a substantial library of fiction and nonfiction. Classical music makes up about 65 percent of my collection, but Brazilian pop and jazz are making big inroads at second place. Good red wine and biking are among my other interests. Within the past year I’ve also taken a liking to good premium cigars, but in moderation. I worked as a magazine editor for 22 years until I was laid off a few years ago and have since taken up novel writing and actually completed two books and am well into two others, including a Hollywood novel. I make money selling things I like, such as film and music… Previously I was a newspaper reporter. This blog  is helping me to manage my film viewing so that it is better documented and less chaotic. It’s harder to keep track of what I still need to see versus what I have already seen. This site takes care of that.

Thank you for stopping by. -E

What an interesting site you have. Your list of movies watched is amazing! I stumbled upon it as I was doing some film research. Is it alright if I asked you a question related to pre-1960s movies?

Have you ever seen any old film/s that featured the character or visual references to the Norse god, “Thor”? In particular, I’m trying to find depictions of the character wielding his trademark hammer. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
