Rick Swift – Editor in Chief
Renaissance Man â€“ Born in Fort Lauderdale, former choirboy, former violinist, former United States Marine Sergeant, former NATO J2X operative, and current film critic. Â Swift holds a Bachelorâ€™s Degree in History with a Psych Minor from Flagler College and lived in Norway for three years while assigned to NATO, what he calls his â€ścanâ€™t get back, golden yearsâ€ť.
With such a diverse background, Rick Swift likes to tackle different challenges head on and enjoys the opportunity to share his thoughts and opinions on several topics â€“ especially films. Â If you ever meet Swift, you can guarantee he will be quoting some movie, or perhaps a Seinfeld episode here or there.
Swift lists his favorite movies as any of the original Star Wars films, with Revenge of the Sith tacked on for good measure, Red Dawn, Saving Private Ryan, and Seven for shock value alone. Â Swift describes the most traumatic film he saw growing up as Star Trek II the Wrath of Kahn, claiming â€śI actually ran out of the theater during the worms in ears torture scene.â€ť His favorite film composers are John Williams and Basil Poledouris, whose Conan the Barbarian theme music he still trusts to inspire him during lifeâ€™s occasional challenges.
