ABOUT RICK ARAGON
I have been writing and commenting on film and television since I saw Howard the Duck as a child, and was horrified by it. I’ve been at the El Paso Public Library for almost ten years and am finishing up my Master’s in Library Science. My goals are to visit every state in the Union and all seven continents.
My guiding philosophy on film reviewing is that a film should be judged by what it is trying to accomplish. Light entertainment should not be held to the same standard as an introspective art-house film.
