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?
New Jersey born and raised. Avid moviegoer, author, and MFA student. Under contract to write a six-book fictional series due out in 2017. Was the co-editor-in-chief of The Causeway Lit. Journal. Former EIC of an online magazine, The Verge. Melt before edgy, medieval sword-slinging films. Penny for my thoughts? Cinematographers who work in Ireland are geniuses. Oh, and Christopher Nolan films are hallowed pieces of art we should worship...

For more reviews, visit Frothy Ruminations, the oldest review site you've never, ever heard of. Now in color! Remember - there's no need not to be critical. Kittens are critical of you; we should learn from them. And who doesn't love kittens? Ergo, cogit sum! QED! Whatever. I'm going to go have a kitten sandwich. Don't wait up.
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. A former member of the San Diego Film Critics Society and current co-host of "The Movie Guys," each Sunday afternoon on KOGO AM 600 in San Diego with Kevin Finnerty.

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.
