For better or worse, I watch a lot of TV and movies. According to TMDb, I've seen titles as of last writing.

An unintended consequence of watching too many movies is that I always try to look for the writer's beneath-the-surface motives far too often. Sometimes it ruins the pleasure of watching a movie, but it is also fun to extract meta-lessons. May be I can distill them some day.

I migrated away from IMDb to TMDB, a community-driven effort. I like to think of it as the Wikipedia for movies & TV. I occasionally contribute an edit or two.
