My favorite decade for the movies is the 1970’s and I’m fixated on some films that I saw at the drive-in back then especially THE FARMER and THE RATS ARE COMING THE WEREWOLVES ARE HERE! My favorite actor is Charles Bronson and my favorite actress is Pam Grier. I collect original movie posters from 1950’s horror films that combine monster imagery with a strong glamor element and my favorite from my collection is the one-sheet for THE ASTOUNDING SHE MONSTER.My favorite movies are ONCE UPON A TIME IN THE WEST, TAXI DRIVER and THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE. I collect vintage monster toys from the 1960’s and my favorite monster is the Creature from the Black Lagoon. My favorite directors are Sergio Leone, Mario Bava and Russ Meyer. I live in St. Louis County and have two daughters. I don’t have a favorite daughter. I am a Movie Geek.

I’ve been mesmerized by the movie ever since my Mom took me to see GOODBYE CHARLIE (look it up, I’m that old). Soon I was walking on my own to the Capitol Theatre for their Saturday matinee. I’d run pk彩票 from grade school to catch the afternoon movie on TV. The older the movie the better. I got movie toys every Christmas, from the Give-A-Show projector to a Super 8 sound camera and projector. I collected 8 MM films and subscribed to the pk彩票 Movie Library (a different book every month from Classics of the Silent Screen to Tarzan of the Movies). During college I studied animation and later worked at several film production houses. In 2009 I was finally able to put my movie knowledge to the test by appearing on TV as a contestant on Who Wants to Be a Millionaire’s Million Dollar Movie Week. I’ve been a member of the St. Louis Film Critics Association since 2013

Favorite filmmakers, stars, and films: Harold Lloyd, Buster Keaton, the Marx Brothers, Boris Karloff, Errol Flynn, THE WIZARD OF OZ, Looney Tunes, CASABLANCA, Hammer Studios, Sean Connery as 007, SINGING IN THE RAIN, Ray Harryhausen, the original STAR WARS, RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK, PINOCCHIO, Alfred Hitchcock, THE IRON GIANT, ANIMAL HOUSE, YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN,SPIDER-MAN 2, and the Pixar Studio.

pk彩票WAMG PROFILE

Somewhere between growing up on a steady diet of Saturday morning trips to the local comic-book shop and frequent viewings of Ray Harryhausen and Hammer Horror films, an awkward teenager emerged that was torn between journalism and the arts. In high school, Michael found himself writing a movie column for the school newspaper. Yet he went on to get a BFA in Studio Art at Webster University. The battle between these two worlds still rages on as he has not entirely embraced the call to be a poor film blogger just yet. Personal projects such as short films and screenwriting still occupy just as much of his time. When not writing about films or creating new ones, you can still find him discussing classic horror, collecting action figures, and reading Batman comics. Clearly, not much has changed.

Favorite Movies (alphabetical order): 8 ½, AKIRA, ALMOST FAMOUS, BRAZIL, BAND OF OUTSIDERS, BLACK SUNDAY (1960), BLADE RUNNER, BLUE VELVET, CARNIVAL OF SOULS, CINEMA PARADISO, A CLOCKWORK ORANGE, DARK CITY, DONNIE DARKO, ERASERHEAD, JASON AND THE ARGONAUTS, KING KONG (1933), LE SAMOURAI, LOST IN TRANSLATION, STAR WARS, SUSPIRIA, THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE (1974), THE ROYAL TENENBAUMS, THE THING (1982), THE THIRD MAN, THERE WILL BE BLOOD, VIDEODROME, WET HOT AMERICAN SUMMER

My life-long fascination with movies and film history began when my father Paul Marquis, a St. Louis-based artist, two-time director of the St. Louis Artists Guild and big movie fan, introduced me to classic films and silent comedy as a young kid. I began writing film reviews for my college newspaper when I was in graduate school studying genetics and molecular biology, and also taking journalism courses. I still like both movies and science, and journalism.I am a Tomatometer-approved critic on Rotten Tomatoes, and a member of the Alliance of Film Journalists (AWFJ), where I am one of the contributors to their Movie of the Week feature. I also review films for the St. Louis Jewish Light and my own blog MarqueeByMarquis.com. I am a member of St. Louis Film Critics Association (SLFC), as well as its past president and a co-founder. Besides writing film reviews, I have given talks on film history to various group.

My taste in films is pretty eclectic, ranging from classics and international films, from epics to small dramas, from art house to blockbusters. I have a special interest in silent comedy, classic films of the 1930s and 1940s (particularly monster movies, film noir, and gangster thrillers), and international films (particularly French thrillers).

Some favorite directors, movies, and stars (in random order) include:

Buster Keaton, Charlie Chaplin, The Marx Brothers, Akira Kurosawa, Stanley Kubrick, Wes Anderson, Ingmar Bergman, Humphrey Bogart, THE GENERAL (the Keaton one, of course), IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE, GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL, THE MALTESE FALCON, CASABLANCA, DR. STRANGELOVE, DUCK SOUP, RASHOMON, SEVEN SAMURAI, THE KID, THE GOLD RUSH, SHERLOCK JR., THE THIRD MAN, YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN, METROPOLIS, M, PSYCHO, SEVENTH SEAL, …and many, many others.
