I always feel writing an “About Me” page because it just seems like I’m selling myself to others, which I guess is the point of a post like this. I live in California (and no I do not live near Disneyland, Hollywood, or anyplace south of San Francisco) and I’m a college student. I recently obtained my Bachelor’s in English and am currently working on receiving my Master’s in English (if you haven’t noticed I like reading and writing A LOT).
I also work as an entertainment writer for a few websites. I write movie reviews for the fantastic Entertainment News International. You can find my stuff at http://www.enewsi.com. I spend a lot of time taking film classes and watching Turner Classics Movies, which is how I’ve grown to love, and write this blog about classic films. I also am the Historical Circuit and Women in Film columnists as part of The Awards Circuit (www.awardscircuit.com), and I am currently working as an intern for The Playlist.
To give some street cred a few of my favorite classic films are Singin’ in the Rain, A Streetcar Named Desire, and Splendor in the Grass. Favorite old actors include Marlon Brando, Cary Grant, William Powell, and Warren Beatty. My favorite classic film actresses are Natalie Wood, Marilyn Monroe and Myrna Loy. I’m a huge Hollywood book reader, if it’s about old Hollywood I’ll read it no matter how legit it is.
In terms of more current movies I love Dirty Dancing, Gladiator, Clerks, American Psycho…honestly the list goes on and on. If you have anything you want to know about me just ask. I started this blog to gush about film and hopefully intrigue more people to watch older movies. You have no idea how many times I want to slap my head when people say “I won’t watch that, it’s in black and white.”
