I GET good reviews!


Opinions by Ronald Bruce Meyer (Alphabetical)
— Peculiar Views of Movies and the Arts —

My current reviews are mostly of movies I've seen, on video, DVD, in the cinema, or on TV. Also, I attend live theater, art galleries and other public displays and performances. The theatre shows I've reviewed were performed in New York, Chicago or Baltimore-Washington, three cities dear to my heart. And then there are the books I read. Most of the books I've read and reviewed are available at the public library, an institution I consider fundamental to democracy. Please support yours — and resist Internet filtering.
