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 20 (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?”
*My general schedule is below, but since I started college (full details here) my attention has been on much more pertinent things. I haven’t the slightest idea when reviews will be published (I barely have time to get to the theater), but they will be posted on Mondays/Thursdays when it happens. Thank you for your understanding.*
Reviews of newly-released films are usually posted on Sunday or Monday. 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 treat my reviews 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 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.
