Hi! I’m 56 years old and have been watching (and been obsessed with) movies since I was a kid. That pattern has waned over the past few years, however. As I get older and more into my “comfort zone,” I enjoy fewer and fewer modern movies. However, I have voluminous opinions about movies from previous decades, so I’d like to share them here.


My credentials:  For 11 years, I wrote a regular series of movie reviews for The Beaches Leader, a weekly community newspaper based in Jacksonville Beach, FL. On the basis of that series, I was voted First in Movie Criticism in 2003 and 2004 by the Florida Press Association.


I’m the first to admit that I’m not encyclopedic about the history of cinema; for that, I refer you to Leonard Maltin. However, at the very least, my writing is quite enjoyable when it comes to the movies I *have* seen. I hope you will agree.

  2. Hi there! I got to your blog through The Wonderful World of Classic Cinema blog and I’m glad I found another fellow classic film lover :-). I write historical mysteries and history has always been of interest to me but classic films is my passion. I have a blog called Mother Time Musings (http://tammayauthor.com/index.php/blog/) where I write about classic films every Friday (and about history and other topics the rest of the week) and I also have a Facebook page for my blog (https://www.facebook.com/pages/Mother-Time-Musings-Blog/973527066001474?ref=hl). I’ll be following your blog with interest.

  4. I just discovered your blog, and it is such a delight. I absolutely love it and look forward to exploring it more!

    As I read on the sidebar that you are a blogathonaholic, I recently announced my first blogathon I am hosting in May. It is about Medicine in the Movies. I have a link attached if you are interested! https://charsmoviereviews.wordpress.com/2017/03/08/medicine-in-the-movies-blogathon-announcement-may-26-28-2017/

  5. Steve- I tried to contact you through facebook on an idea I had for a co-hosted blogathon, but maybe you missed it. I thought you might be interested in the idea of an “End of the World” blogathon. I’ll welcome your opinion. You can contact me on facebook, or I can look back here or if you want you can contact me via email
