Movies are nearly a universal language. They can inspire us and make us laugh. They can make us feel better on a bad day and be the perfect way to round out an evening. Movies can exhilarate us with thrilling plots and well-crafted dialogue. They can scare us silly and cause us to hide under a blanket. Movies pump us up with intense action scenes and great one liners and break us down with heart wrenching dramatic endeavors. Across the globe and the human race, we have an amazing opportunity within each DVD case or streaming flick we click on to share an experience with those we love or within a community of fans. But what if we weren’t totally sure how to best speak the language of the cinema? What if we wanted or even needed a little guidance when it came to expanding our film frontiers? That’s where we come into the equation.
We are the self titled Cinemasters of the Universe and we love movies just a little bit more than your average joe, even though we are just a couple of average Joes. Frankly that’s kind of our specialty. Comprised of Ron “The Rental King” Avis and Adam “Nighthawk” Peterson, we have always had our own independent passions for movies from an early age. Through the years we’ve cultivated this bent towards film into an ongoing love affair with all things devoted to the silver screen. Through years spent in video stores as both patrons and Clerks, we’ve devoured thousands of movies and developed an eye for what we do and do not like about all things movies. It’s a street smarts about film with just enough heart that doesn’t come from a school but a lifelong pursuit of motion picture excellence.
So we aim to provide our wealth of knowledge and observation to any and all who will gather to listen and watch whatever expertise it is exactly that we possess. We will share our thoughts on the movies we love. We’ll introduce you to films you’ve never seen or even heard of before. From time to time we’ll break down some of the more intricate moving parts of the movies we watch but our aim is always to make it accessible to the every person because deep down we want other people to share our love of movies as well. We aren’t polished or fancy. We’re just a couple of dudes who love talking about movies and hope that whatever things we say from silly to heartfelt have some translation into your own worlds to enrich the movies you chose to watch and share with those around you. That’s what makes us the Cinemasters of the Universe.
