We would like to introduce you to our newest writer on Attack of the Blog, Gene Unyons, who will be reviewing movies for us every week on the day before they come out. Gene is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin - Eau Claire, where he double-majored in Native American Literature and Kinesthesiology, taking 14 years to complete his BFA. After getting out of college, he interned under his father, Jack Unyons, at WEAU-13, where Jack was a meteorologist.
Gene found his calling one Thursday morning while thumbing through Roger Ebert's Movie Yearbook for 1997, and decided he wanted to be a film reviewer. Though he's a confirmed agoraphobic, who rarely leaves the house, save for religious ceremonies and his weekly foray to the Farmer's Market, Gene has a keen sense of film, related to the media he's seen about the movie before its release. In short, he is perfect for Attack of the Blog.
'Gene Unyons is a warm body with a computer that works,' says Josh Krane, Senior Vice President of Interactive Services, 'this, in itself, separated him from many of the other applicants for the job. Also, he's willing to work for copies of his work, which are immediately available on the internet. We look forward to a long and fruitful relationship.'
Gene will be reviewing the newest films each week, without seeing them. We trust his encyclopedic knowledge of the limited number of films he's seen, plus his self-proclaimed standing as a pop culture watchdog, to guide him correctly.
So, please help us in welcoming Gene Unyons to the AOTB team!
Check out Gene's reviews from last week.
