Aceman – Writer

Aceman was born in Cuba, grew up in Connecticut, went to school in Texas, and now lives in Florida, saying “I think its some kind of law that all Cuban-Americans have to live in Florida at some point in their lives.”

“The first movie I remember seeing on the big screen was Disney’s The Swiss Family Robinson at the Danbury Drive-In in Danbury, CT. For those of you who were not around prior to video tape, Disney used to re-release their movies every few years to indoctrinate every generation of children into their cult, -er, I mean to give every generation an opportunity to see their classic movies.

Since I was a kid, I have loved movies. I was 11 years old when Star Wars came out, and I thought it was the greatest thing ever! Of course, my tastes have grown, although I still love Star Wars. As an adult, the process of creating a movie has fascinated me as well, which is why I loved it when DVDs started including such inside information. Now I get to share my opinions with you. To paraphrase John Cusack in “Hi Fidelity” who we are is basically what we like, let me tell you who I am with difficulty as I narrow down my favorites to only 5?
