About me, my market, and what I love most about my work:
I absolutely love movies! Being a professional movie critic in Puerto Rico is a dream come true. My journey into the world of cinema began when I was a child, thanks to my dad who would take me to Blockbuster every weekend. Those trips to the local video store were magical. I would walk through the aisles, gazing at the countless movie covers, feeling an overwhelming sense of anticipation. Choosing the perfect film for the weekend became a ritual, and my dad’s guidance and enthusiasm only fueled my excitement. From comedies to dramas, action-packed adventures to thought-provoking documentaries, Blockbuster had it all. Those movie nights at home, with popcorn in hand and the excitement buzzing in the air, were pure bliss. Movies opened up a whole new world for me, transporting me to different times, places, and emotions. The power of storytelling and the art of filmmaking captivated my young mind, and I knew from then on that movies would be an integral part of my life. Today, as I review films professionally, I can’t help but reflect on those cherished memories at Blockbuster, where my love for movies began. It’s a passion that drives me to explore the vast cinematic landscape, analyze performances, and share my insights with others. The influence of my dad and those early movie experiences will forever be etched in my heart, reminding me of the joy and wonder that movies bring into our lives.

My Favorite Film/ TV series that I am currently watching and why:
Back to the Future holds a special place in my heart as my all-time favorite film. This timeless masterpiece, directed by Robert Zemeckis, effortlessly weaves together elements of science fiction, adventure, comedy, and heartfelt storytelling. From the moment Marty McFly hops into the iconic DeLorean time machine, I am transported on an exhilarating journey through time. The film’s clever and intricate plot, combined with its endearing characters, captivates me with each viewing. The dynamic between Marty (played by Michael J. Fox) and the eccentric Doc Brown (Christopher Lloyd) is nothing short of magical, creating an indelible on-screen chemistry that fuels the film’s charm. Moreover, the film’s impeccable attention to detail and brilliant screenplay ensure that every scene is layered with meaning and significance. Beyond its technical brilliance, Back to the Future is a true celebration of the human spirit, reminding us of the importance of friendship, courage, and the choices we make. It effortlessly blends nostalgia and excitement, leaving me with a sense of wonder and a smile on my face long after the credits roll. As I watch Marty race against time to set things right, I am reminded of the film’s enduring message: that our actions today can shape our tomorrow. Back to the Future continues to inspire me, not only as a film enthusiast but also as a believer in the power of storytelling to transport and transform us.
