Tomatometer-approved critic
Biography:
Born and raised in Long Island, New York.
Favorites:
My favorite film is Jaws and that will probably never change. Other favorites include Barton Fink, There Will Be Blood. Taxi Driver and Caddyshack. I think Avatar was lame and I gave a positive review to Freddy Got Fingered so there you go. I'm a little strange.
Location: Reno, Nevada, home of the frightening pedestrian.
