Hello Reviewers!!

It’s that time of the year again, The Oscars! The movies that came out in 2015 were amazing and now it’s time to give them their acclaim. Unfortunately, some movies didn’t make the cut but that’s the nature of the beast at times. Maybe in the future it will get another award.

I love movies! If I could predict 3 things you take away from having a conversation with me it would be 1.) He knows his movies, 2.) He’s really tall, and 3.) Wow, he knows a lot about movies.
