Film Reviews

network1

Welcome to my Reviews Page!  You can read here all of the films I’ve reviewed on my site, Comedy short films and Cartoons that I like (and a few critiques attached to some of them), my reports on Cinecon, my favorite Classic Films festival in Hollywood, and section with posts dedicated to Famous Film Stars of Hollywoodland!

Keep in mind when you read some of my older reviews:  I have changed a lot as a person since I wrote those first reviews, so if I sound angry or cutthroat about some of them, don’t take it too personally.  It’s all part of my journey and development as a writer and as a critic.  For your convenience, I’ve listed the Feature Film Reviews based on the decade it was released.  Enjoy!
