I was a fairly regular, if inept,contributor here at one time (mostly in Films, with occasional forays into TV shows). These days I pop in once in a great while to do some cleanup work or just check out the progress that's been made.

28 Days Later - Black Hawk Down - Buffy the Vampire Slayer (film) - Conspiracy Theory - Daredevil - Dogma - Ed Wood - Galaxy Quest - Grosse Pointe Blank - Just Like Heaven - The Magnificent Seven - Mystery Men - The Pirates of Penzance - The Punisher - The Tick (live-action) - True Grit - We Were Soldiers - X-Men - X-Men 2 - Zulu
