Edgar Wright, J.J. Abrams... I'm inspired by a great entertaining story, told in a way that I wouldn't expect. I'm inspired by deep, entertaining characters, and a story that took time to write and develop. I'm also into flicks that just are there to be fun. I'm not an arthouse film maker, but I'm not into a story that was created in twenty minutes specifically to make a big visual effects reel either. (i.e. Transformers). Also, I hate the word "retcon."
