Who is this chick?
You may be wondering why on earth does this person have an entertainment blog?! What does she know… did she attend Julliard ? No, business school. Is she a critic? Negative. (Well, not exactly.) Is she in the business of “show”? Nope, once more.
Honestly, I do not have fancy credentials. What I do have, however, is years and years of watching movies and TV: the good, the bad, and the ugly. I am a consumer, just like you. I spend money on monthly cable and streaming platforms, just like you. With few hours to devote to entertainment, it’s important to be selective and discover what is worth my time. With a matinée at the local theater running about $40 for two people, I certainly have an opinion about what, where and when I’m going to spend my hard-earned cash… just like you.
So, welcome! I hope that you find yourself entertained by the commentary. If you find a notion that amused or informed, or just plain made you think… then mission accomplished! I’m happy that you found your way here, and that we connected, albeit briefly, out of mutual interest and love of film and TV.
You will not find gossip or bashing here, and when I do opine, I will endeavor to leave any snark-fest at home.
Any and all thoughts expressed are my own, and I am not affiliated with any company or product.
What’s with the name?
If you were wondering what the heck “celluloid up” means… Well, the celluloid should be obvious as in “to do with film, or bent for my purposes to refer to “on film”, as an overall genre. Now, make the noun a verb — like “pony up” or “cowboy up” — as in, let’s take the idea of all that can be accomplished in film and television, and kick it “up” a notch!
