The Movie Lord (aka Robert Trate) writes Mania's weekly DVD Shopping Bag and Toy Maniac Column all the while reviewing as many movies as possible.
“As for my reviews I think the worst part of whether to see a film or not is to check out the review and the reviewer ruins the movie by going into exact details. I post non-spoiler FILM reviews here at Mania. I might have The Movie Lord as my title (from the days when I was just a Maniac) but I also love comics, action figures, and going to conventions (though I do not dress up)".
Robert has been in front of the camera and behind it. He produced a comedy called Townies and has acted in films, skit comedies, plays and musicals. Robert is also the graduate of 5 video rental/retail stores. He attended Penn State University where he studied film production and film theory. When not glued to his computer or TV, Robert works for Neo-Pangea, a website and film Production Company.
He was even once quoted in saying, “I’d sold my soul for a Star Wars figure”.
If you ever find yourself in the Philadelphia area on the first Friday on any month visit Robert at the Colonial Theatre (home of The Blob). Robert hosts their First Friday Fright Night screenings of cult and horror classics.
