About Me: Former night editor and blogger for AOL Moviefone, where I wrote the weekly new DVD release blog. Before Moviefone, I was the news editor at The Hollywood Reporter and, before that, the editor of Boxoffice Magazine. I'm webmaster of OnVideo.org, one of the longest-running home video sites on the Web, and also run Dreamsville.net and "The Adventures of Headless Barbie."
Interests: Film, home video, home audio (especially surround sound and SACD). Love my 2008 Mustang GT. On the film front, I thoroughly enjoy samurai and Asian horror outings. Also, I've gotten interested in films from DEFA (Deutsche Filmaktiengesellschaft), the state-run studios of the former German Democratic Republic (East Germany). Surprisingly, many of these films questioned and criticised life under the East German communist regine.

Guilty Pleasure: Spy thrillers, Asian action and horror, chase films
