My name is Brendan Bellavia and I’m a film blogger, but most importantly a film fanatic. For as long as I can remember, I have adored films. I have spent a great portion of my life watching any movie I can put my hands on and researching about how films are made and the history of film. I have a cool website where I review films and make lists. So check it out!
