With a passion for a film and an interest in writing, I have dreamed of becoming a film critic ever since high school. It doesn't concern me when people say film criticism is only a hobby and not a job; I'm in love. Watching films is like a sport for me; I check out the stats beforehand, pick a team to root for at the box office each weekend, and analyze the moves on screen. Good or bad, seeing a film is exhilarating both physically and mentally. Talking and writing about the film afterwards only enhances the experience. I find nothing more exciting than discussing the politics and inside workings of the film industry. My thirst for knowledge includes film history, film festival research, and directing styles. Don't ask me what my favorite movie is. That's like trying to pick a favorite child- I love them each separately. I'll give any genre a try, and I usually get candy with popcorn. I can't imagine my life without film and hope I never have to. That's why I continue to support the film industry. My only complaint is that I was not alive to see movies like Some Like It Hot, The Graduate, and Raging Bull on the big screen. I write because I can, but I watch movies because it's in my blood.
