Star Wars A New Hope toy-story American Beauty Raiders-of-the-Lost-Arc Airplane! Forrest-Gump The-Princess-Bride


My name is Chancey Plagman. I am a gigantic movie nerd who spends his free time memorizing Oscar winners and nominees and seeing as many good movies as I can. I have always wanted to write about films, review films, and speculate on films, and hope that this site helps me get a couple of people who can agree or disagree with me. I am currently a full time student studying film at the University of Iowa, and am very excited to be able to discuss film whenever or wherever I can.
