A little about the blog:
I’ve been a watcher of movies all my life (My first film in theaters was 1988’s Willow). I’ve been following the Oscars since I was 8 years old. I am now officially spilling this passion on to the internet. Won’t you all come along for the ride?
A little about the author:
My name is Marya and I’m 6th generation Californian. I have a B.A. in Comparative and French Literature from the University of California, Berkeley and an MFA in Screenwriting from the Academy of Art University. I’ve reviewed a few films while working for the Daily Californian in Berkeley. I contributed the foreword to Lew Ayres: Hollywood’s Conscientious Objector. I used to do social media at Warner Bros./Rotten Tomatoes/Flixster, Turner Classic Movies, and FilmStruck. I currently am the Brand and Editorial Manager for NetflixFilm. All opinions are my own.
Where else you can find me:
I am an avid Tumblr user and have been for almost six years. My posts tend to be a sort of stream of consciousness account of my love of film. It was named one of the Top 100 Film Tumblrs by TotalFilm.com and one of the 90 Best Tumblr Blogs of 2011 by Buzzfeed.com. I also post non-film related stuff there as well. I used write about classic film for YAM Magazine. You can also follow me on Twitter, as long as you don’t mind a little swearing. I also have a bunch of film-related lists here on listography. You also might enjoy iCheckMovies, you can find me here. Lastly, you can find my YouTube channel here. If you feel the need to send me an email, my gmail address is maryag7[at]gmail.com.
