Favorite Films

Initially, I simply listed about 10 of my favorite films thinking this would be an interesting bit of personal information for my students to get to know me better.  Turns out the interest in my academic credentials is dwarfed by the overall interest in my favorite movies.  Who knew?  Anyway, for this reason I have chosen to expand my list of favorites into a few distinct categories.  They are listed below with links to each category.  I welcome a healthy debate on any of these films!


All Time Favorites

Guilty Pleasures

Movies I Hate, But Everyone Else Seems to Love Them


I also used to participate in a weekly radio show on SUU's Power 91 (with DJ Angie Smith).  The show was called "Movie Time with Kevin Stein" (I know...great title!) and features discussion on a variety of movie topics.  I was once told I have a face for radio, which I'm pretty sure is not a compliment.  Hopefully, my soothing monotone voice and our stimulating content will leave you riveted.  Click on the desired podcast below to listen on the web or to download from iTunes to your preferred gadget.
