This is my officially introductory post with my new Blog on The Huffington Post.
The basics - 28 years old, married with one child, currently residing in Woodland Hills, CA. Aside from my day job (kind of a secret, but it's independent contracting), I dabble in voice over and I occasionally play around on the Improv scene (not as much since Allison came along, but it's a fair trade).
I am simply a longtime film critic and pundit of sorts, especially in the realm of box office punditry. Aside from the usual film gossip (not the US Weekly or Nikki Finke variety), I'll be dealing with box office analysis and comparison and criticism of film criticism and journalism (watching the watchmen, as it were). I will dabble in politics here and there, but I'm sure there are many people on this site who can do that better than I.
For an archive of the last seven months of my work, go to Mendelson's Memos (http://scottalanmendelson.blogspot.com). That site also contains a link to an archive of all film reviews. From now on, the content of both sites will be generally identical.
I will update as often as my unpredictable schedule allows me (usually a few times a week). All comments and corrections are appreciated, just be civil and try to keep a level discourse, as I will make every effort to do the same. Thank you.
