I’m a web designer by day and a movie blogger by night at FlixChatter. I’ve started blogging about three years ago, pretty much on a whim as I was working on a blog for a client. My love for movies spans across all kinds of genres (except horror). From Jane Austen costume-dramas, lush fantasy epics to sfx-laden, full-throttle action, my taste in movies can be quite perplexing.
My late dad was in the film biz in the 70s in my home country Indonesia, so I must’ve inherited his love for writing and movies. But it was my late mother who first introduced Hollywood classics when I was about 12. She brought Gone with the Wind, The Sound of Music, and My Fair Lady VHS tapes from her European vacation. If I were to name just five favorite movies, it’d be: Batman Begins, Ben-Hur, Roman Holiday, Sense & Sensibility and Return to Me.
