    I missed the twitter poll, cuz I'm not on twitter ... but if I may chime in, I need some more Blue Flame Special in my life.

    I'm a sucker for the nuts and bolts of filmmaking (well, of all things really) and BFS did a great job of illustrating those.

    As someone you got shingles a few years back, your statements on remembering life is better now no matter what's on the news speaks to me. I'm glad you're in a better place. You're doing great work. Can't wait to see more.

    I started watching your channel this past year, and I have to say that you have enlightened me in many ways. I never even thought about watching the Mission: Impossible movies until I saw your video on it, and a month later, I was begging my dad to bring me to watch Fallout, and losing my shit in the theater as Tom Cruise ran. I also recently watched Paddington 2 with my grandmother, a huge fan of Paddington, and it was the most delightful viewing experience. Thank you for all of the wonderful videos this past year!
    Also, thanks for recognizing the genius that is Tom Hardy's performance in Venom.

    You are an inspiration. I am tired of being JUST angry and am weary of not being a happy and joyful being. I’m going to re-start school in March, to get a degree in film, theater, and media criticism. This is #notanews and I love that I know what that means. All the success and wishes to you and yours.

  • Gabrielle de Bourg
    Gabrielle de Bourg 5 months ago

    It has been a joy to follow you throughout the year. I've shared a great deal of your videos and in one I called you the "anti-angry critic" TheXvidr. Your essays and videos are often filled with so much insight, depth and often valid critique, but most importantly they are filled with love and passion. You love movies (and media) and in everything you do, it just shines light a light through the screen. When you do criticize it is always valid, thoughtful and often emotional: often one can hear on your voice that you dislike it because you wished that the filmmakers had done better.
    Because while the world is often a dark and often a scary place, in the middle of all of is Patrick Willems, who's love and passion for movies, filmmaking and stories knows no bounds. And that love makes this world, at least for me, a tid bit brighter.
