About me

Gender MALE
Industry Student
Occupation Journalism
Location Auburn, Alabama, United States
Introduction I'm currently a journalism student at Auburn University hoping to land a job as a film critic someday. I see blogging as a way of developing my writing through practical experience, and any feedback I receive or film suggestions (the weirder the better!) can only expand my horizons. The blog's title comes from my film professor's reminder that no movie is "just a movie." Also, I review things besides movies. Puns! (Look, I'm going to be a journalist. I need to start working on those now.)
