After college, he began highlighting what he liked and disliked about the numerous films he watched. “It’s taken me about two years to sort through all of my reviews to compile 365 for this book. What I’ve done that I haven’t seen anyone else do with movie reviews is use the create your own adventure style,” says Brubaker. “The book can help people on movie night, when they’re wondering what to watch.” Since moving to Cleveland, he has spent many hours at Cedar Lee Theatre and Capitol Theatre, as well as the Cinematheque at the Cleveland Institute of Art, all of which are mentioned in the book.

Amazon Review

“Byron does a great job of making reviews both interesting and relevant. I have been bored to tears by some excellent movies and really loved some awful ones! After reading Byron’s review, I have a pretty good idea if a movie is important or entertaining. Sometimes both, sometimes neither, but I am definitely adding to my “movies to see” list!” –Jeff P.
