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).
