A note from the NYFalls.com founder:
Due to a company restructuring, I will be losing my full time job soon. Although it saddens me to leave the company that I have helped build up for the last 14 years to the success it is today, I am looking forward to new opportunities. I am known for my technical, managerial, and creative abilities, and I hope to utilize all of those talents in my next career. I put together a résumé outlining my skills and projects. Please have a look. Although I am open to any management position, I would like to leverage my experience and success with NYFalls.com and NYHistoric.com into a career in the WNY travel/tourism industry. If you know of a company that would benefit from someone with talents and experience, please spread the word. Thank you for your help and support.
Here is my Resume | Discussion topic

War Horse - 9/10 - Great story about humanity towards animals during wartime. Shot on film instead of digital. Intense battle scenes without a drop of blood, impossible blue skies and sunsets.

Sherlock Holmes - 8/10 - Frantic romp with a few laughs. Not bad.

Sherlock Holmes 8.5/10 great fun! Inspired by a book, not just Guy's imagination, so my husband loved it! Better then the first in both our opinion.

OK it was an older movie, but man I had so much fun watching it I have to recommend it!!

Shoot 'em Up 9/10 fun violence! It's so crazy and can't ever really happen but I laughed out loud through the whole movie!!

Don't be Afraid of the Dark 8.5-9/10 great movie (although I'm partial to Del Toro) fun, creepy and his use of little kids (who are awesome actors!) always makes everyone uncomfortable. If it were an adult you wouldn't feel so bad! I still think Pan's Labyrinth is my #2 all time favorite movie!!

I think that one was more of my lesser likes of his. It's been so long I'm not really remembering it. I'll have to get it again.

Did you see the Orphanage? Another AWESOME movie. And of course there's Hellboy which is fun.

Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close 6/10
This movie honestly had potential......it had some real quality moments but as much as I wanted to like it.....I came away disappointed. It's a shame too, because Tom Hanks and I have a child together (kidding!), Sandra Bullock and I were best friends in college (yeah, right!) and the kid who plays the little boy looks distractinglly like the founder of this website (for real; see below....). Too contrived. Overall, the acting is pretty good, but I have to wonder where they got the guy who ruined a critical scene in the film. Because of his pathetic showing, I pretty much just gave up and checked out at that point. :(

Robin Hood (2010) - 4/10 -Who the *&^% thought this was a good idea? I went in expecting some good action, came out wondering why Ridley Scott kept his name on it.
