About

I am Movie Man Jackson. University of Dayton 2012 graduate, Central Ohio Film Critics Association member, and Columbus, Ohio resident. This is the first time I’ve ever tried running and managing a blog, so this is all new to me. I am here because I enjoy watching movies! And, being someone who have thoughts on them has always been appealing to me, and blogging fills that appeal so easily. 

I’m not too far removed from college and definitely a 90’s kid. I do have a full time job, but that will not stop me from giving you my opinion on cinema. I don’t have Netflix or Apple movies or whatever, so everything I review either comes from a physical copy (always expanding my movie library) or the theater/TV like HBO. My entries are random; I try to watch a lot of the newer releases but I love reviewing older things too, so one week you may get The Amazing Spider Man 2 and in the same week get Speed. You never know! 

My grading system is pretty simplistic. I’ve opted to use letter grades, and films are graded relative to their genre. For example, let’s say Her and Let’s Be Cops both receive an A-. Compared to each other (which I don’t do), Her is the better film. But in their respective genres (drama/romance and comedy) I find both to be very good.

I am not a master in prose, but I consider myself solid enough and hopefully improving. Part of it is just having something worthwhile to write about. So, follow me on this maiden voyage, and be sure to comment or like if something catches your eye.

Thanks! @MovieManJackson

    • I just love having physical copies of things, or still seeing them on the silver screen. Now I can’t claim that all of my pieces are from those avenues, but still, most are!
