Film Reviews

Our Film Reviews are written film critique Mark Hobin of fastfilmreviews.com. Quality not quantity is the focus. Reviews rarely extend beyond 600 words. A freelance writer who hails from the San Francisco Bay Area, he has been blogging since November 2009. With an emphasis on current releases, he still holds a special place in his heart for classic Hollywood pictures – Hitchcock is a favorite.

Mark is also an avid music lover and can name the artist of any song that has ever hit #1 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart. He appreciates all music genres but is especially taken with the electronic dance music of artists like Daft Punk, and Cut Copy.
