I’m an aspiring editor-director-writer (in that order) that likes movies from all genres, especially war and sports movies.
Loves movies that have great dialogues, are tightly edited and can hold their own without visual gimmickry (that’s not to say I don’t like great cinematography).
Hates movies that start and end bland, visual tricks made to distract from the bad story and movies that do not challenge the viewer. However, that does not mean that I like convoluted films, since it does not need to have a complex structure to engage the audience. A lot of times, less is more.
