Eric was born on Star Wars and has since evolved into the ultimate film watcher. He watches classics, indies, documentaries, and even chick flicks on top of all the usual male-oriented choices.

His super power is being able to appreciate the artsy stuff while being able to appreciate and even love most of the mainstream stuff to (he'll even defend Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter).

At the 2002 Sundance Film Festival, a little indie romantic comedy challenged critics and audiences alike called Secretary. The film follows a troubled young woman who gets a job as a secretary for an eccentric attorney that eventually brings out a disturbing side in both of them. Considered still to be one of the fairest look at BDSM, the film is a precursor to the Fifty Shades craze yet never found more than a small cult following. But does it deserve better or should it bend over and get a deserved punishment? MovieDude Eric, Kent and Chris find out.
