About Andy Zach
Howdy Doper! My name’s Andy Zachariason and I’m a film studies and mass communication graduate. I like to think I have good taste in film and I love talking and writing about them. Film is the ultimate art form and this is where I explore that form. Obviously, movies are almost entirely subjective and in my reviews I try to give my honest view on a film, but I also try to be objective to further the insight of my reviews.
The ONLY review that matters is your own, but film is meant to be discussed, wrestled with and consumed. I’m not huge on ratings because they always seem to overshadow the actual review. I do letter grades just as an arbitrary scale where I factor in my own enjoyment mixed with it’s technical strength, and how much I think others would enjoy it.
I try to see as many movies as I can to gain a higher appreciation and understanding of film. I also enjoy movie analysis and digging deeper into a film’s goals, meaning, and construction. My aim here is to help you understand cinema while I learn more about it myself. The greatest thing a movie-goer can do is to keep learning and exploring. We mustn’t forget a film after the credits roll. It needs to be dissected and discussed so it can find it’s place in cinema. I hope you enjoy my reviews and leave a comment with your thoughts!….The Dude Abides.
