Bio: In 1977, a film named Star Wars came out that sparked the world's imagination and ignited the spirits of filmgoers everywhere. Caught up in that fervor was Eddie Pasa, a one-year-old brought to the theater by his parents; as one of his earliest memories, he cites this as the starting point for his love of cinema. He has seen thousands of movies in the intervening years, finally finding an outlet for his opinions in 2010, when Dean Rogers graciously gave him a yearlong stint at The Rogers Revue. This was followed by a two-year post at the now-defunct Reel Film News. A movie doesn't have to be an Oscar-winner to get a good review - if the story, script, and acting are strong, there's nothing that can stop even the lowest-budgeted movie from being great. His current Top Ten movies are: 1. Inception 2. The Shawshank Redemption 3. To Kill a Mockingbird 4. The Usual Suspects 5. Se7en 6. The Goonies 7. Brick 8. Die Hard 9 Monty Python and the Holy Grail 10. Aliens To be sure, there are more relevant and more artful movies out there; yes, The Godfather and Citizen Kane and all of those other cinema staples are great movies. However, if put to the "It's a rainy Saturday afternoon and I want to throw in a DVD" test, these are the ones that win him over every time. In addition to reviewing movies, he is also a drummer for Juniper Lane and plays solo acoustic shows in the area. Special thanks to Dean Rogers for getting me started, and to Jenn Carlson, Moira, and Ari for putting up with the long hours. Thanks also go to his parents and family for fostering his love of film, and for being sticklers about grammar and punctuation. Finally, thanks to Michael Parsons for joining him on this adventure. Eddie is a member of the Washington DC Area Film Critics Association (WAFCA) and a member of the Online Film Critics Society (OFCS).
