You and I both know the truth. You just don't admit it.
I'm an old, miserable fart set in his ways. Some of the things that bring a smile to my face are (in no particular order): Teenage back acne, the rain on my face, long walks on the beach and redneck women named Francis. Oh yeah, I like to watch and criticize movies.
Yes it is me. Were you expecting someone else?

I have been a movie fan for most of my life and a film critic since 1986 (my first published review was for "Platoon"). Since that time I have written for several news and entertainment publications in California, Utah and Idaho. Big fan of the Academy Awards - but wish it would go back to the five-minute dinner it was in May, 1929.

Living in Vienna, I study film. I do other stuff too.
School teacher by day. Horror aficionado by night.
Eventually I'll put something nifty here. Until then, know that I'm watching you. Closely.

Pavi's a university student in London, but spends more time watching films than studying. She loves dancing and hates people that don't give a film their full attention. She also uses words like love and hate far too liberally.
When I'm not sleeping, I'm doing something else that closely resembles sleep.
