…there was FaceBook. I began writing short movie reviews based solely upon my ‘knee jerk’ reaction (get it? : ) to them on my first viewing…or a viewing after a slew of years had passed since the last time a flicks images had danced over my eyeballs. What began as a ‘throw-away’ exercise in ‘economic’ writing and ‘touch type’ practice blossomed into something that I actually made a point to do, as it spurned me on to find new (or new for me) movies to scope out, to give them amusing and honest grades. Then…people actually started telling me that they had been reading them. Once I picked myself up off the floor and shook the shock away, I felt the need to continue…my legions of fans demanded it!!! Yeah…all 3 or 4 of them. But still…readership.  So…fast forward to NOW. My first blog. The way I see it, I’m going to keep spewing these things out…why not see if I can hit a few extra folks along the way. There’s no hidden agenda. Like everyone, I have an opinion on every movie I see…for better or for worse. And every INFORMED opinion is valid. If my opinion meshes or clashes with your own, tell me. I’m curious. Really. Just don’t be a dick about it. SO…to cinephiles, geeks, The Curious or those people who stumbled onto this site by accident…I hope you enjoy reading my cheezy lil movie reviews as much as I like writing them. Peace.”
