100 Years, 100 Creators – Part 8 (Final)

Over a few posts, I’ve been choosing different creators or creative teams–novelist, composer, scriptwriter, comic book artist, etc–who have influenced or inspired me, and in most cases brought me a lot of enjoyment.

This is happening, people.  Apocalypse approaches (What type?  Maybe one of these?) and I have time to get into a bunker, but I only have time to find seven movies to bring with me.  Seven movies to take with me into the rest of my lonely, miserable, purpose-questioning existence.

47 Movie Blogs #34 – Three Favorite Buddy Movies
