Sergio Leone and the Infield Fly Rule is the place I go to express my thoughts on the movies and (occasionally) on baseball, and to interact with a small but very intelligent community of like-minded readers. I do a lot less writing on baseball than I used to, mainly because I realized that I was a better fan and observer of the sport than I was an informed writer about it. There is some overlap between the two audiences, but since my primary passion has always been the movies that’s usually where I feel most comfortable. I have discovered a natural affinity for writing about the films that came out in my youth—I came of movie-going age during the much-lauded early 70s of Easy Riders and Raging Bulls, and as much as I love the classics of that period, I have thoroughly enjoyed rediscovering other less vaunted films from this era that are just as good and worthy of discussion. I’m as comfortable writing about horror films and other grindhouse fare as I am about Hollywood classics and contemporary films from around the world. I’m only limited by my interests and what is available for me to see. In my book, Revenge of the Cheerleaders is twice the movie The Reader is.

An interview with blogger Dennis Cozzalio, whose Sergio Leone and the Infield Fly Rule inspired Mostly Movies' lone instance of blogger-on-blogger conflict. Seriously though, Cozzalio is one of the friendliest fellow film bloggers I've come in contact with and well deserving of your attention.
