About

Welcome to FILM GEEK CHIC – a  blog dedicated to becoming your all-knowing, all-seeing movie friend. 

My name’s Claudia Almiron and I’m an avid movie goer.  While I was growing up in Ontario, I’m certain that my parents didn’t understand the Canadian movie rating system.  Instead of just watching kid friendly movies like Ritchie Rich and Labyrinth, my sister and I were allowed to watch Predator, Commando, Aliens, Child’s Play...etc.   We spent our childhood loving mythological monsters, 80s action heroes and science fiction.

These interests definitely translated into my adult life and I spent my late teens and early twenties working in video stores (yes, video!) renting on average eight movies a week.  Some weeks I would pick my favorite movies; other times I would start at A in one of the genre sections and work my way through the alphabet.   Even though the nerdier genres still had a special place in my heart (sigh), I started to love gritty dramas, raunchy comedies, documentaries, artsy independent movies and foreign films.  Now, it’s rare that I’ll refuse to see a movie.

This blog encourages followers to see all kinds of movies and provides them with movie news, trailers, film reviews, buzz, hype, gossip and the occasional rant about different directors and actors.

Excelsior!

Claudia

    I can’t believe that a glassy-eyed girl with no lips, 2 missing fingers, and flies buzzing around her head can write such interesting material. If I hung some human flesh over your keyboard, might I persuade you to post more frequently?
