After receiving certain comments and feedback, I’d like to lay out a couple small things on this page. Just so that, going forward, anyone who cares enough to check this site out will be in the know as to what they can expect.

i) The reviews of television series I’ve done and currently do, they are both a recap and a review. Mostly they’re recaps. However, within those I also provide general insights you’d see in reviews. I don’t call them recaps specifically because, to be raw and honest, it help with hits. So sue me! Either way, 99.5% of people who drop by my site like how I do things. If you’re simply a passerby and don’t dig, don’t worry too much about it.
On the contrary, my movie reviews are strictly reviews. Many contain a short plot description, but otherwise it’s all review material on the films, their themes, cinematography, score, so on and so forth.

ii) My star rating is for movies only. I don’t bother to rate each television episode individually. So, I go from zero ★s to ★★★★★.
That being said, a ★★★★★ horror movie is not the same as a ★★★★★ drama, or a thriller, everything else. Not all ★★★★★ films are the same, either. It’s a case by case basis. So don’t assume because I gave an indie horror ★★★★1/2 stars that I necessarily mean it’s as good as a big budget thriller I may have also given the same rating. You may disagree with my specific ratings, but don’t come at me trying to compare certain films solely on their rating. Dig in, read what I have to say, then we’ll have a chat.

iii) If you have inquiries of any kind, contact me. Do not, however, contact me with an offer then disappear after I reply. If that happens I’ll never be doing any sort of business with you, ever again. Luckily, this has only happened once, but for anybody soliciting or hoping to get ad space, anything – only one chance. I do well enough with my website I don’t need to wait around for people only to bail on offers without any follow-up.

Anything else I think of will get added to this disclaimer.
Also, if you steal my stories or screenplays, I’ll know. Let’s say I’m super meticulous about my intellectual property.

I'm a Bachelor of Arts (Hons.) graduate and a Master's student with a concentration in early modern literature and print culture. Although I've studied everything from Medieval literature onward, also spending an extensive time studying post-modern critical theory; I have a large interest in both Marshall McLuhan and Jean Baudrillard. I completed my Honours thesis on John Milton's Paradise Lost + the communal aspects of its conception, writing, and its later printing/publication. This thesis will serve as the basis for a book about Milton's authorship and his influence on pop culture (that continues to this day). My Master's program involves a Creative Thesis, which will be a full-length, semi-autobiographical novel. Author Lisa Moore is supervising the writing of this thesis. I'm also already looking towards doing a dissertation for a PhD in 2019, focusing on early modern print culture in Europe and the constructions of gender identities. - I'm also a writer and a freelance editor. My short stories have been printed in Canada and the U.S. I edited Newfoundland author Earl B. Pilgrim's latest novel The Adventures of Ernest Doane Volume I. Aside from that I have a short screenplay titled "New Woman" that went into post-production during early 2018. I was part of a pilot episode for "The Ship" on CBC; I told a non-fiction story of mine about my own addiction/alcoholism live for an audience with nine other storytellers. - Meanwhile, I'm writing more screenplays, working on editing a couple novels I've finished, and running this website/writing all of its content. I used to write for Film Inquiry frequently during 2016-17. I'm currently contributing to a new website launching in May 2018, Scriptophobic; my column is titled Serial Killer Cinema. Contact me at u39cjhn@mun.ca or hit me up on Twitter (@fathergore) if you want to chat, collaborate, or have any questions for me. I'm also on Facebook at www.facebook.com/fathersonholygore. Cheers!
