Hi, I'm Jason and I love movies.  Movies of all stripes (I'm the guy who will argue to my last breath that Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle is infinitely better than Mystic River - and more culturally significant, to boot).  I've operated I Hate Blogs, a review blog for a few years now, which I still intend to expand and turn into a full-blown site with archived reviews and everything, but now that I'm back in school it'll probably still be a while.  In any case, I really enjoy watching movies, analyzing them and debating their merits (or lack of) with friends and family.  Thanks for your time.
