Welcome to the Examiner.com Fort Lauderdale Movies column by James J. Caterino. This is a new title for me and this article is meant to serve as an introduction to potential new readers who may be looking for an exciting, new film reviewer to follow.
Everyone who loves movies likes to read movie reviews—sometimes for guidance, sometimes seeking new perspective and insight, and sometimes simply to see how your own opinions match up to those of a reviewer. There are literally thousands of movie reviews plastered across the internet and other media airwaves daily. So why subscribe and follow this column as opposed to all of the others? What are the sensibilities of James J. Caterino and why should you bother coming back?
These are the questions I ask before I start following a new critic or writer in any field. Hopefully the information below will help answer these questions.
