Hey there, I’m Robert
I’m a movie and television blogger based in the “Charm city” of Baltimore, Maryland. My family has been in Baltimore and its suburbs for years, with some roots in North Carolina or Virginia on my mother’s side of the family. I went to college in Blacksburg, Virginia. (Go Hokies!), pursuing my Masters degree in Education and looking to see where life will take me.
By day, I am a middle school English/Language Arts teacher, getting lost in the antics and pre-teen dramas of my students while teaching them. When I’m not teaching, I’m usually out looking for a new book or getting lost in a bookstore: searching for new reading material, cruise through the stacks in the entertainment section. I can also be seen searching through digital video sites like Vudu, Movies Anywhere, Amazon Prime Video, and other sites to find new movies and shows to enjoy (you can check my Quarantine chronicles and recent movie reviews). I try to spend as much time out in the sun as possible – enjoying walks around my neighborhood and trails, maybe enjoy a drive-in movie, to cheering for the home team, Baltimore Ravens.
You’ll often find me in line at Starbucks or picking up my app order. Nothing beats a home-cooked meal or learning a new recipe (Thanks to The Chef Show!), Macaroni & Cheese is the perfect comfort food and I’ve grown a love for brunch and Hello Fresh meals. Most likely, I’m probably finishing my first cup of coffee while you’re reading this.
About the Blog
I started this blog on blogger in 2013 as my own way to talk about the movies I liked while also writing for an the Virginia Tech radio station’s magazine. I wrote about what positives I saw in the movie, what I thought could use some work, the actors’ performances, and what I believed made the film could be as far as longevity. I honestly didn’t think I’d make it this far, but I had my focus to deliver my opinion on something I am passionate about.
Honestly, I didn’t see myself as a full time movie blogger because I was afraid it would take something away from me as a movie fan. Movies were (and still are) an escape for me when the world feels tough, that new world that I can be a part of for an hour or two. I found comfort in a movie theater, loving the atmosphere when audiences are engaged into what they are witnessing. As the years went on, I found myself more in love with the storytelling and how a film came to life. As movies stepped up, so have television shows that opened the door for more creativity. As the entertainment business has changed over the years, so must my blog. Here, you will find movie reviews, opinions, lists, and maybe soon some reactions!
I’m so glad that you are here. So grab your favorite snack and enjoy!
