My name is Erick. I review: movies, TV shows, and other odds and ends (film in general is my passion). I am a very weird Christian with much to say. Also, I’m 19 (and a millennial); as such, I have much to learn in the “professionalism” department, but gosh I love what I do!

“What is M.M.M?”
“Movie Minutes of Mastery” is a term I created to describe moments (usually under 3 minutes) of a movie that go beyond “excellent” or “classic.” I first used this phrase in my 12 Angry Men (one of the best movies of all time) review. There are limitations to the use of the Triple M. A movie can receive a M.M.M only if it has a grade of an A- or higher, and this is something that happens very rarely. Examples would be: the montage in Hacksaw Ridge, “Talking to Wilkins” in The Conjuring 2, and the electrocution scene in Return of the Jedi.
“What is your posting schedule?”
Reviews of newly-released films are posted on Mondays (if possible, they’ll be out on Sundays). Projects (or extra reviews) will be posted on Thursdays. These postings will not always be consistent. Bear in mind, I don’t get paid for this, so I am not obligated to rush, keep exact deadlines, or bend over backwards for anyone. However, since I want this to blossom into a full-time career, I will treat this with great effort and furious passion.
“Why is your name Guy’s Guru Grades?”
“Guy” is one of my nicknames, I love alliterations, and I use the grade system in my reviews.
“What is a review?”
An in-depth analysis of a movie (including all of my opinions on it), this is what I primarily post.
“What is ‘My Thoughts On?'”
Shorter, less detailed reviews. Most of what you see in these posts are my basic thoughts on the movie. I make these when I have little to say, or if other reviews have already said what I want to say.
“Do you put spoilers in your posts?”
90% of the time, no. I only use spoilers if: A, the thing I’m reviewing is really old (aka, not in theaters) or B, I really don’t want you to waste your time/money. I make it very obvious if there will be spoilers in a review, so it is up to you to read it.
“Why am I reading this far?”
I don’t know, but I appreciate your attention.
