My name is Melissa and I am addicted to watching television shows and movies. I grew up in the 80’s and was raised on corny shows like Different Strokes and The Fresh Prince of Bel Air and I couldn’t get enough of Pretty in Pink, The Goonies, Home Alone, etc. Yes I just referenced Home Alone, as a kid I was obsessed with that movie and probably still know every line to this day.
I love to write, so I figured I could meld my two worlds together. I have a BA in English and Art History and a Master’s in Rhetoric and Writing, yawn how boring. My love was always film and I was deterred and scared to pursue my true dream to be a movie critic. I feel that this blog can be an outlet to following my passion and hopefully entertaining and helping out TV and movie lovers figure out what they should watch.
When I came home from school, we didn’t have a computer to jump on to and watch YouTube videos or surf the web, instead I watched my daily rerun shows or pop in an a movie in the VCR. Yes the old contraptions of yester year.
Sometimes I feel like TV Mike from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. On a side note, don’t you just love it when Charlie has to burp his way down from the vortex pulling him and his grandpa up, oh how sweet, “burp Charlie burp.”
Opinions are just that, opinions, but I have always felt that it is fun and helpful to read what other people think before or after I see a movie or TV shows.
This blog is dedicated to everything I like to watch. It may not be the coolest thing out there, but I like it and I hope you enjoy my thoughts as well. I look forward to interacting and talking with my SnapCrackleWatchers out there!
My Favorite Movie: (Which is a question I always ask movie lovers) is Pulp Fiction. What’s yours?
