Welcome to Ackthud.net!


I've added a whole new section to my website, where I review all the movies I see in theaters, and the occasional TV show (by season), over on a new section of the site, Movie Reviews from the Aisle Seat I usually update it weekly, sometimes more frequently. Please have a look.
Prior to that, I wrote some quickie reviews back in the early 2000s, and you can find them HERE
