Born in Harlem, ghetto capital of the world, U.S.A, to a Welsh Missionary family believed to be descended from Robert Recorde (never authenticated, though widely accepted among those better studied circles), Walter Lee Tyrone Howard the Third is a writer, a doctor, a nuclear physicist, and a theoretical philosopher. However, above all, he is a man, a hopelessly inquisitive man, especially as it pertains to movies and the cinema, and so, he’s dedicated most of the love in his life to film, and created this site to be like his personal film diary shared with those interested.

An avid collector of VHS tapes, Howard currently holds the largest collection of tapes west of Athens (unsubstantiated).

His taste in film has been is often controversial, being described as “avant-garde” and “ahead of its time” by some, and “inexplicable” and “baseless” by others. He would gladly watch BloodSport (1989) 100 times before ever sitting through Amour (2012) ever again.

He watches anywhere between seven and ten films a week, and hopes that you find his brief summaries to be a worthy guide in discerning which movies to see and which to stay clear of. You can navigate this site through genres and subcategories, or, if you have a specific film you are curious about, just type it into the search bar, and see its review.
